Each year the Perisher Historical Society holds a dinner on the Sunday of the Season Opening Weekend (i.e. Queens Birthday weekend). It is a major social and a time when old ski pals can reminisce. Mixed with the good food and wine is an interesting presentation.
The purpose of the newsletter is to not only to inform members about PHS activities, but also to profile people who have influenced snow sport recreation and industry in the Perisher Range Resorts, to recount the stories of those who have experienced the wonder and challenges of skiing, working or living in the Perisher Ranges, and include any other snippets of information that may appeal to those interested in snow sports and Snowy Mountains history.
By 1909 the general public's interest in Mt Kosciusko and the snow saw the NSW Government Tourist Bureau construct the Kosciusko Hotel on the Kosciusko Road at Diggers Creek (the staff quarters remain as "Sponar's Inn"). This became a very socially acceptable recreation and groups formed (e.g. Kosciusko Alpine Club) who took block bookings of the hotel.
