The Perisher XC Centre Trails and Conditions Report
Sat, Sep 19th, 2020 5:07 am

Grooming of the XC trails has finished for the season.  The Nordic Shelter will remain open until 1 October.  Although the road to Charlotte Pass has been cleared of snow, the road remains closed to vehicular traffic. It’s that time of the year when a bicycle comes in handy to get you and your skis to a desired departure point along Kosciuszko Road for a ski.

There is still plenty of Spring skiing to be enjoyed.
