Perisher XC - Grooming Report
Sun, Sep 17th, 2017 6:00 am

This is the day we have been waiting for all week ...... blue sky, sunshine and excellent Spring snow conditions.  Luke has groomed and trackset all the inner trails and the 7.5k.  Given it is the 17th of September, it doesn't get any better than this.  If you are not interested in the groomed trails, put on the touring skis, pack a picnic lunch and head out to Porcupine Rocks for the day.

A big thank you to those individuals who have contributed funds to support the ongoing grooming of the trails during a time of the year when there is often very little to groom. What you are skiing on today is partly the result of your generosity.

Enjoy the day.  We certainly will.

Campaign to Raise Funds for Grooming 

Extreme and unexpected snowfalls mean that the Perisher Valley XC Trails have enough snow to groom for ages - more than has been seen for a very long time! NPWS has done a wonderful job of grooming the trails as the snow has fallen this winter, and will continue to do so. But no one anticipated such large spring snow falls!
Contribute to the grooming going through the school holidays. Tax-deductible donations will be used to supplement NPWS grooming for the remainder of 2017 winter. If anything happens to be left over, it will be used for summer grooming.
This is a short term project - donate very soon to enhance the spring grooming on the Perisher XC Trails.
