Snowboarding in Australia? A Look At Perisher

by Fraser

Some of my family are moving out to Australia and will probably end up living in Sydney. No doubt we’ll visit – so I’ve been checking out possible snowboard options. The first looking that I did, via The World Snowboard Guide, showed Perisher to ‘look decent’. A bit of quick feedback on Facebook suggested Falls Creek or Perisher – with a comment that Perisher gets the most annual snowfall…

Google Maps shows the drive to be approximately 5 hours from Sydney.

Not super close, but it’s an easy drive for a few days, or a week, of good shreddin. Especially when stacked next to the 1 hour 45 minute drive to an indoor snow slope, 150m in length!

I’ve picked out a couple of videos showing the park. I don’t know what the rest of the mountain is like, or what expectations people who ride there a lot, have. A decent park would be a good enough draw for me…

Anyone ridden there? What’s it like? What about other resorts that are close-ish to Sydney?
