At Valhalla Perisher we offer your family a classic ski lodge holiday experience; hearty hot breakfasts, delicious dinners, après by the fire and a warm family friendly alpine ambience.
But first, let's talk about what we don't offer. There's no bunk beds, no pumping noisy bar, no public patrons, no walk through traffic and no Tvs in our bedrooms...
Yep, we're classic ski lodge style. We offer you Perisher accommodation where your whole family will feel at home in all of our beautiful guest areas.
With no Tv in the kids bedroom you'll find the kids eager to get downstairs to the common areas and interact with other kids and guests, talking, laughing and playing board games or playing outdoors in the snow. It's also the perfect excuse to get the kids off devices and introduce them to the old fashioned art of pre-technology communication!
We do offer free wifi and there is a separate Tv room with DVDs, wii games, board games, books and puzzles. This room is adjacent to the dining room so it's great for the early 6pm diners to set up and watch a movie while the adults enjoy a kid free meal next door. Note: babysitting is not included.
This is especially great for the fidgety little ones. We find most kids up until year 6 or year 7 really enjoy the freedom and quickness of the kids dinner.
Kids under 10 will be served a kids dinner at 6pm. Kids 11 and 12 years are encouraged to eat at kids dinner - trust us, they will love it. Older kids are welcome to opt for the kids dinner too, but please note for catering purposes, it will be for the duration of their stay.
Note: For Yulefest, we do not offer an early sitting, kids will be served the special Yule Theme Dinner at 7pm on the selected Yule Dinner Dates at no additional charge.
My kid is hungry said nobody never at Valhalla but if you or the kids are searching for an afternoon or evening snack we have a complimentary bowl of fresh fruit in the dining room and a self serve tea/coffee/hot chocolate and milo bar. We also have an honesty bar stocked with a variety of snacks for purchase.

Oh what fun you will have on your family snow holiday!
First Time Skiers / Boarders: If your kids are keen to try snowsports we recommend booking them in for lessons so they learn to ski or board safely and with the newest techniques.
Getting to Perisher Ski Resort: If you can't ski out to get to the slopes you have two options:
1. take an oversnow taxi - Hans Oversnow will have you at the footbridge with minimum fuss. You should pre-book your transfer, especially if you are meeting lessons.
2. walk - it's about a 10 minute downhill walk and you will need après boots / waterproof shoes. It might be an idea to hire a locker in the Perisher Centre so you don't have to carry all the kids gear too.
Getting Back Home to Valhalla: This is easy and stress free with complimentary after ski oversnow transfer between 3:30pm - 5:30pm daily (excluding arrival and departure days when we offer a transfer with luggage). The timing is perfect for ski school pick up with allowance for a couple of extra runs so the kids can show you some of what they have been working on.
All kids programs are popular and at risk of booking out, particularly in school holidays / peak periods so it is advisable to book ahead.
Beginner to Advanced: Perisher has snowsports programs in place for kids of all abilities.
Private lessons: are available for all age groups through Perisher.
3 - 14 Years Group Lessons: Options include the full day Discovery Kids and Perisher Kids programs and also 3 hour half day options.
6 Months - 3 Years: Child care is available in the Perisher Centre for kids 6 months - 3 years and those 2+ can opt to add in a ski lesson.
Babysitting: Daytime and evening babysitting is available year round with Snowy Mountains Babysitting who will come to Valhalla to sit up to 4 kids per carer.
Stay On Snow at Perisher: It pays to stay on snow when competing in Perisher Interschools Snowsports competitions. Sometimes events can run as early as 8am or as late as 6pm so staying on mountain means you won't have the added stress of getting up to Perisher early in the morning or travelling back down the mountain after dark.
Perisher Snowsports Training: Specific training sessions, camps and programs for Interschools Snowsports are available through Perisher.
Getting to Perisher Snowsports Events: If snow conditions allow, we are a 2minute downhill ski to the Perisher Centre Footbridge which offers access to Perisher's Front Valley and the Village 8. If snow conditions are unfavourable then we are a 10 minute downhill walk to the footbridge or you can opt to book a Hans Oversnow taxi at own expense. To get back home with ease we include an after ski transfer coupon per person daily for use with Hans Oversnow between 3:30pm - 5:30pm. If you wish to come back outside of these times you can walk (about 10-15minutes) or use your skier coupon towards a Hans Oversnow taxi.
For Cross Country Skiers we are very conveniently located diagonally across from the Perisher Nordic Shelter and starting area. It's approximately 200m.
