Australia's Perisher Ski Resort Hit by Snowstorm With More Powder on the Horizon

Perisher Ski Resort received more than 20 centimetres of fresh snow on August 1 after a snowstorm hit overnight.

Video filmed at the resort showed staff busily working to clear chairlifts and eating areas in preparation for a day of skiing.

“That’s right we got hit with a snowstorm last night, bringing in 20cm of fresh pow. Our mountain is looking fluffier than ever and frosty white,” Perisher reported on its website.

“As we move into August, Perisher is looking forward to powder days on the horizon,” the resort told Storyful.
