Sports and Recreation Facilities

Feel the thrill of carving fresh tracks down the snow-blanketed mountains of Kosciuszko National Park’s Snowy Mountains, near Jindabyne. With four massive ski areas, Perisher Valley is Australia’s most popular ski destination, and the largest alpine resort in the southern hemisphere.

You’ll find a range of snow sports to suit everyone from the beginner to the expert at Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes, Guthega and Blue Cow. A whopping 47 lifts and 1,245 hectares (over 3,000 acres) of snow-covered terrain, means you’re bound to find the perfect slope. In the evening, kick back with a range of resort-style accommodation, restaurants and nightlife to suit every budget.

Spend the winter months skiing, snowboarding, cross-country and tubing, and when the snow melts, there’s fantastic walking, mountain biking and fishing. You’ll soon discover there’s plenty to tempt you any time of year in the incredible high mountain country. Visit the Perisher website for more inspiration and information.
