Thredbo or Perisher 2 Nights Weekend Snow Trip
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2017

I went for a last minute snowboarding trip on the last weekend of the season. As always with Australian resorts, I keep my expectations low as the conditions are not always great. I understand why they have so many T bars (high winds) but they do get annoying when they are the only option for where you want to ride.
Some of the terrain is lots of fun and they have plenty of terrain park options from beginner to expert.
If you do go late in the season. Don't be in a rush to get on the mountain early as it is very icy. Wait util the sun has softened it up a bit.
Apart for the snow, I found a lack of quality dining options in the village. I would recommend the Burger Bar for good burgers and other food.
The bakery has good pies and coffee. Great for a morning snack after you've worked up an appetite. Central Road 2625 is possibly the best eating option. Nothing is cheap on the mountain.

We took our family on a skiing holiday for the first time. We had never skied before. There are no group lessons for adults and kids together. My kids would have had to go into seperate groups due to their ages. We decided to get a private lesson. Cost $330 for two hours. It was worth every cent. The kids mastered the skiing in the two hours and I learnt enough to be able to practice and improve through the day. Our instructor also helped us get the hang of the chair lifts . I would highly recommend getting a private lesson if you are a first timer. Well worth the money. Thanks to our instructor Ben.

Lovely village. lots of dining and accommodation options - though they tend to book up quickly in winter. Very easy access to ski fields.

I stayed here for the first time this winter with my wife and two teenagers. We have skied at Thredbo, Perisher and Hotham previously, and skied Whistler and some US resorts. Having heard about the "village" for so many years I was keen to stay on-site rather than the other options, such as driving back and forth to Jindabyne. In terms of convenience its great to be able to walk to and from the lifts, although that probably comes with a short shuttle bus ride, depending exactly where you stay. My main complaint is that there was just no atmosphere in the "village". We ate in three different restaurants and it was school holidays, so it was busy, but after dinner (7:30 or 8pm) we thought we'd go for a walk around, do a little shopping etc, but nothing was open! At that hour there was nothing open apart from the few restaurants, so that gives the villages a bit of a hollow, deserted feel. We couldn't even buy an ice cream for the kids. I thought the place would be nice at night with nice lighting and souvenir shops to browse, but no. Maybe I've been conditioned to expect too much (comparing to North American resorts) but seriously, a couple of thousand dollars spent could do a lot to lift the ambience in the village, and maybe encourage the shop keepers to stay open rather than the ghost town feel it has now. Its quite expensive to stay compared to other options, and yes its convenient but I'm not sure that will be enough to get me back next year. I'm rating it 4 stars for ski access but 2 stars for the Village experience, so 3 stars overall.

This is a party place, even out of season. It's energetic and fast paced. In summer the mountains are converted into mountain bike trails and the place is pretty full on. Winter has its own long list of activities of course, and I was pleasantly surprised at all the action during the supposedly inactive period. I took the cable car up to the eagles nest and then completed the walk to the summit of Mount Kosciusko . It's an easy route on a set path and anyone with any fitness level can achieve a successful result. Once done, I visited the restaurant before getting back on the cable car and it serves great fresh dishes. It's a brilliant experience and well recommended. Just beware on the roads for animals and drive carefully. It took me a few hours from Canberra and there was evidence of many animal remains along the way.
