Countdown to Perisher 2018

We are going skiing in two weeks!

It’s been a while since our last set of turns on March 2017, so I’m a little excited.  And, to make it even better Perisher is in the middle of its best season in 14 years!  They’ve just hit over two metres of snow and have announced that they are staying open until 7 October – which is really late for the Australian season.  I think the last time we went skiing in September (about 7 years ago) I was avoiding the mud and grass coming through the snow.

It’s always a gamble planning well in advance to ski late season, so it’s nice to know it will pay off.  We purchased our Epic Australia passes last year and took advantage of some early bird accommodation rates back in February.  All knowing full well that me might end up on grass.  With a natural snow depth of two metres two weeks out we will definitely have some decent snow, even if we end up with nothing but groomers and blue bird days.  There is more snow in the forecast though, and we are expecting some while we are there.

It’s going to be a long drive to the Snowy Mountains from Adelaide, but I’m looking forward to a bit of a road trip as well.  I’ll aim to keep my blog updated during the trip.  It will be my first attempt at my new blog while actually travelling, so I’m looking forward to that too!

I am an American living in South Australia and there are three things that I love to do and pretty much define who I am - skiing, travelling and running.  I have been doing each for most of my life and love sharing my experience and passion for them with others.
