New Leichhardt Quad Chairlift

 

Perisher Resort are replacing Leichhardt T-bar with a new quad chairlift ready for the 2019 winter! The work planned to be completed 2018/2019 summer, also includes the installation of additional snowmaking – bringing the total cost of the development to $4.2 million. 

 

Replacing the Leichhardt T-bar with the new quad chairlift will bring benefits to guests visiting the resort, including:

  • Increasing lifting capacity by a huge 75%, giving guests more time to ski and board popular runs including The Cleft, Powder Ridge, Snowy Trails and the Leichhardt Terrain Park.
  • Replacing the steep, advanced only Leichhardt T-Bar with a user friendly chairlift will open more of the area up for children and beginners.
  • The new chairlift will have the same conveyor load system as the Freedom Quad Chairlift in Guthega, making the loading process easy for all guests.
  • A snowmaking installation from the bottom of Happy Valley T-bar through to the load of the new quad chairlift.
