Accommodation in Perisher
If you're planning a ski holiday, Perisher, in the Snowy Mountains, has a wealth of accommodation options to choose from. Whether you're travelling as a large group or looking for an intimate weekend getaway, Perisher will provide a beautiful and exciting backdrop for an enjoyable and memorable holiday.
Located approximately five hours south of Sydney, Perisher is the Southern Hemisphere's largest ski resort. There are plenty of on-snow accommodation options available, making it possible to park your car in the Skitube car park and then catch a train that takes you straight to your hotel. Skitube is Perisher's innovative alpine railway system - connecting Bullocks Flat with the Perisher Valley.
If you're serious about skiing, on-snow accommodation is definitely the way to go. You'll save time in the mornings, so you can get out there and start hitting the slopes as early as possible. And when you're all tired out from an exhilarating day of skiing or snowboarding, a long hot bath at your hotel is only a short walk or shuttle away.
However during peak periods, on-snow accommodation may not always be an option. The good news is that there's a wealth of accommodation options to choose from in nearby Jindabyne - ranging from hotels and motels to self-contained apartments, guesthouses, cabins, and backpacker hostels.
Ski packages are always a good idea - saving you the hassle of booking separate lodgings and ski passes. Ski package deals also represent great value for money, as they often include additional extras such as breakfasts and ski instruction. If you're planning to go to Perisher during the peak ski period (i.e. July and August) make sure you book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
A map of the Perisher Village will give you an idea of where the accommodation is situated in relation to the ski fields. Make sure you get hold of a map before you head out the door so you can find the ski runs that are suited to your skill level, and so you can find your way back to the hotel!
And remember, not only is the Perisher region fantastic for people who love to ski and snowboard, it's also a thriving hub of restaurants and retail outlets. Gorgeous all year round, Perisher is one of Australia's premier tourist destinations.
