Perisher Accommodation & Ski Resort

Perisher Accommodation

Perisher Accommodation is truly unique staying on the mountains with snow at your doorstop. From the central hub of Perisher, the gentle forgiving bowl of Smiggin Holes (a haven for families), or the more secluded village of Guthega. Step out of your Perisher accommodation and straight onto the snow! Most accommodation in Perisher is lodge or hotel style with a handful of on-snow apartment options. Park your car below the snowline at Bullocks Flat (20 minutes from Jindabyne) and catch the Ski tube underground railway right up to Perisher. Most Perisher accommodations have an over-snow transport service to transfer you from the Ski tube terminal to the front door of your ski lodge.

Thinking about choosing Perisher accommodation? some of the benifits of staying at a Perisher lodge or apartment is that you wont be wasting valuable time getting to the snow, perfect for fresh powder days where you want to be on that first lift ready for soft feathery turns! Perisher Lodges range from budget through to 5 star resort facilities, Each lodge or hotel has onsite restaurants but there are an array of restaurants in the village that you can choose from. You might even like to try a meal at your neighbouring lodge or head to Happy Jax Bar & Grill for night skiing and try your hand at cooking your steak on the grill. Plenty of the Perisher accommodation options also offer self contained apartments and units if your looking to save on meals or prefer the privacy of your own lounge. Most accommodation options are located within just a short walk to a lift or a run so you'll often find you get first tracks every morning!

Perisher Ski Resort

Perisher is Australia's largest ski resort, formerly known as Perisher Blue, which was changed to a simpler ‘Perisher’ at the beginning of 2009. Perisher is located in the Australian Snowy Mountains in south eastern of New South Wales about 600 kilometres southwest of Sydney. Many people choose to ski Perisher due to the massive area and diversity of terrain linked by a network of over 45 ski lifts. Perisher offers an array of après ski options with plenty of great bars and restaurants scattered throughout the various lodges and hotels of the valley. Perisher village has shops and facilities from mini supermarkets to a newsagent, a chemist, ATMs and some great restaurants and bars. Try night skiing/boarding Tuesdays and Saturdays under lights on Front Valley using the 8 seat Express Chairlift. For something different you may want to try snow tubing. ‘Tube Town’ has groomed snow lanes allowing fun lovers of all ages a high-speed ride down the slopes & lift back to the top

Skiable Terrain

Perisher is the largest ski resort in the southern hemisphere with 4 ski areas and over 3,076 acres of skiable terrain. With this much terrain and state of the art snow making Perisher really is a family friendly resort with plenty of snow cover and a range of runs to suit all types of skiers and snowboarders.

Unique to Perisher the Skitube is a short 8.5km train ride from Bullocks Flat through the Ramshead range and into the National Park then onto Perisher Valley and then another 7 minutes to Blue Cow. Bullocks flat is located 20km from Jindabyne along the Alpine Way (towards Thredbo). There's FREE day and overnight parking at Bullocks Flat and the train station is located outside of the national park which means you are not required to carry chains in your car when travelling to Bullocks flat.
