The Australian Ski Season is nearly upon us! Some of the most popular areas for skiing and all things snow in Australia are Perisher and Thredbo, however Falls Creek, Mt Buller, Charlotte Pass, and Mt Hotham are also favourites.
To help your decision on where to go this ski season, we have picked out a few of our favourites in the Snowy Mountains:
An enthralling alpine culture and awe-inspiring mountain terrain surrounds Rydges Thredbo Alpine Hotel located just metres away from the base of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift. Choose from 65 welcoming guest rooms suitable for anyone, from solo travellers, large families and groups of friends holidaying together.
Enjoy a stay at The Denman Thredbo, a family run hotel dating back to 1962 with a focus on warm and friendly service. After immersing yourself in an alpine lifestyle; a day on the mountain starting at the chairlifts, just a stroll away, a drink at a local bar and a hearty hot meal in the onsite venue, Terrace Restaurant, head back to The Denman to unwind and enjoy a cosy night’s sleep in comfort and welcoming surrounds.
Cuisine on Lake Crackenback Restaurant & Bar offers a dining experience that can’t be missed when in the Snowy Mountains; their tranquil lakeside setting near Thredbo is picturesque, accentuated by floor to ceiling windows. Whether you’re staying at the resort or passing through, a leisurely dining experience at Cuisine will offer you country flavours based on the best produce.
Sitting at the foothills of the Snowy Mountain range, Courabyra Wines Restaurant offers up tantalising wines and taste bud tingling meals with a scenic alpine backdrop. A handful of old wine barrels are used as make-shift tables, surrounded by steel stools on a wide verandah, creating a place for visitors to easily mingle and enjoy a touch of sun and a glass of wine over a share platter in rustic surrounds.
For all those that love not only snow, but fishing too, spend a day out in nature and experience a family friendly fishing adventure in the Snowy Mountains at Eucumbene Trout Farm on Stoney Creek Road. Take a tour around the farm and learn about sustainability, management and licensing before enjoying a spot of fishing for trout on a privately stocked, six hectare lake.
