Free­dom at Guthega

Alpine News - - On The Slopes -

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.
