Take some time out, destress, unwind and enjoy fun quality family time! No cooking, no cleaning, no self-catering stress, no bunk beds and no whinging kids - ooh except when it's time to go home....
At Valhalla there is no restricted bar area nor pumping noisy bar, no public patrons nor walk through traffic. We're a private guest only lodge and kids are welcome in all of our common areas. We can take infants by request but with our room configurations and split level lodge, we're better suited for families with older kids. (4y+).
There are no Tvs in our bedrooms so you'll find the kids eager to get downstairs to the common areas and interact with yourselves, other kids and guests. They'll be talking, laughing and playing ping pong, board games or exploring outdoors. We give you the perfect excuse to give the kids a break, get them off devices and introduce them to the old fashioned art of pre-technology communication!

Oh what fun you will have on your family snow holiday! Our on snow location is perfect for your family to enjoy a fun snow experience.
Step outside the lodge to build snowmen, make snow sculptures and have snowball fights. Take the kids on a family fun, guided or non-guided snowshoe adventure (no experience needed). Go tobogganing or try cross country skiing, snowboarding or snow skiing. Step back inside the lodge for a table tennis rally or to play board games while we prepare delicious meals for your family.
First Time Skiers / Boarders / Cross Country Skiers: 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). If you wish to come back outside of these times, you can use your voucher and pay any difference directly to Hans Oversnow.
Getting to the Cross Country Trails: The Perisher Nordic Shelter is located about 200m from our lodge, it is easy to walk there for cross country lessons. Cross country tracks are also located at the back of our lodge.

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 and Group Lessons: are available through Perisher. Our closest ski school location is Perisher, though Smiggins can be accessed by a complimentary shuttle bus and Blue Cow by the skitube.
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.
