Freedom at Guthega
PERISHER’S commitment to constantly improve and literally lift the bar continues in 2014 with the new $4m “Freedom” quad chairlift in Guthega.
The Freedom quad chairlift will unlock some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Australia, with awe inspiring views over Mt Kosciuszko and the Main Range.
CEO of Perisher, Peter Brulisauer, said that it was very exciting to be opening the chair this winter.
“Guthega is my favorite of Perisher’s four resort areas, with terrific wide open groomed runs like Karl’s, Schnaxl and Bloody Mary and top off piste runs like The Screw, the Freedom chairlift will unlock these runs and new terrain for all levels of skiers and snowboarders,” Mr Brulisauer said.
The Freedom will increase Guthega’s lifting capacity by 46 per cent, giving skiers and snowboarders more time to enjoy Guthega’s great terrain.
With the capacity to carry 2400 people per hour, the Freedom will lift skiers and snowboarders 200 metres from the bottom of the old cow pastures j-bar at 1713m to the top of the cow t-bar at 1913m in just over five minutes.
NEW: The Freedom quad chair will open up the Guthega area at Perisher allowing for more terrain to be accessible.
