Your home away from home ... let us look after you

When regular snow conditions allow, the quickest way is to walk to the top of the drive, put your skis on, and ski out!

Guests are also able to utilise the complimentary Barrakee shuttle service from the lodge to the Perisher Valley Ski Tube Terminal, with the additional option of being dropped off at the Interceptor quad chair on the way.

Many of our guests ski-in and ski-out once regular snow conditions allow.

If there is insufficient snow, guests are able to utilise the complimentary Barrakee shuttle to get them out and back from the slopes.

If you are a beginner, have young children or just don’t want to ski-in or ski-out, our complimentary shuttle service from the lodge to the Perisher Valley Ski Tube Terminal will get you onto the slopes and the afternoon service will see you safely returned to the lodge.

When regular snow conditions allow, you are able to ski back to the front door of the lodge!

Guests are also able to utilise the complimentary Barrakee shuttle service from the Perisher Valley Ski Tube Terminal to the lodge.

Barrakee has 2 large drying rooms for our guests to use.

All boots, gloves, helmets and jackets should be left in the drying rooms when you return from your day on the mountain.

There are some great walks in the Kosciuszko National Park.

Snowshoeing is another option. Our non-skier guests also arrange to meet the rest of their party at either Perisher or take the Ski Tube to Blue Cow for lunch.

Lunch can be purchased at the lodge by pre-ordering with a member of staff at the breakfast sitting. Tea and coffee making facilities are available at the lodge all day. There are no self-catering facilities at the lodge.

Food is also available at the various food outlets on the mountain.
