Just did a day trip (school hols, july 09) to visit friends staying in the resort. Firstly there are no child care facilities for 3yrs and under. We took the option of using the Perisher child care for our 28 month old but the oversnow timetable only gives you around 4 and 1/2 hrs in the resort.
Our 3 other boys aged 6, 9 and 10 overall had fun on the runs. The only problem we and our friends had was with the younger ones being bounced out of the chair at the bottom station by what I can only call inexperienced and lazy lifties. If it had happened once then I would have understood but when I saw it happen 3 times in a row to our and our friends 6 yr olds ( twice with adults beside them and once with my 6 yr old with his 10 yr old brother beside him) then it makes you wonder if kids are really welcome. It is sad to say Australian customer service is lacking at the best of timesbut the operators of CP have a long way to go to catch up to their claim of being a "family friendly resort".
By contrast the on the same trip at both Perisher and Thredbo and I was so happy when without even asking my 6 yr old was always lifted onto the similar older style chairs.
It has been 20 yrs since I have been to CP and I reckon it will be another 20 before I go back.
