Early bird catches best ski deal

ONE of Australia's favourite winter playgrounds, Perisher, has started its countdown to the long weekend which marks the official start of the 2012 season.

Kicking off on June 9, the 2012 snow season is already causing hype among keen snow-goers, with the first snow falls recorded as far back as January.

This sends a positive message to those planning a snow holiday and Perisher is answering the call with some incredible deals in the run-up to the start of the season, including early bird packages available online at perisher.com.au.

If bought before May 31, guests can make as much as a 30% saving on in-resort pricing.
