Perisher / AU: Construction of the NEW Leichhardt Quad Chairlift is Underway
Farewell Leichhardt T-Bar! Construction of the new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift is underway! The $4.2 million development comes as the second new lift investment in 8 years! 2014 saw the construction of the Freedom Chairlift in Guthega and today saw the first steps in the construction for the new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift, with the removal of the existing T-Bar towers in Perisher Valley.
The Mountain Operations team have flicked the switch and went to work straight away. The removal of Leichhardt T-bar comes as snow remains on the ground, which protects the environment in the area and assists in the removal of the existing lift. The replacement of the Leichhardt T-bar with the new quad chairlift will bring great benefits to guests including;
Additionally, further investment into the Leichhardt area will see the installation of snowmaking extend from the base of Happy Valley to the base of the new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift. Improving snow conditions and accessibility on one of Perishers most popular runs for beginners, Snowy Trails
It’s an exciting time here at Perisher! Since the build of the Freedom Chairlift in Guthega finished, we began focusing on the development in the Leichhardt area. The day has come, and the Leichhardt T-bar towers have been removed! We look forward to watching the transformation of one of the resorts most popular areas with the installation of the Leichhardt Quad Chairlift and snowmaking.” says Michael Fearnside, Operations Director.
