Facts about Perisher

Perisher is owned by the Vail Resorts Group, which means it is part of the EPIC Pass. If you are planning an international ski holiday to one of the other Vail owned resorts, such as Whistler, Vail or Heavenly Lake Tahoe, we recommend purchasing the Full EPIC Pass before you travel (for best prices purchase before the end of August). You will then have Perisher for the following season included in the price.
