Make your kids smile

Your Family holiday

"Valhalla Lodge was the perfect place to stay with the kids. After a long day on the slopes the Valhalla created a warm, friendly atmopshere to enjoy a quiet beverage while a three course meal was prepared for us. Great food and company, would recommend to all"... tripadvisor, Hudson D, August 2018

First Time Family

Oh what fun you will have! If your kids are keen to try snowsports we recommend booking them in for lessons so they learn the newest techniques the right way. It is often said by many a parent, "My kids ski better than me"

In the mornings, if you can't ski out to get to the slopes you have two options: 

1. take a 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. 

We've made getting back to Valhalla easy with complimentary after ski oversnow transfer between 3:30pm - 5:30pm daily, 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.
