One of the benefits of staying with us during ski season, is our magical on snow ski out location. Our lodge is typically snowbound for the duration of the ski season. Even if there is limited or no snow coverage, roads are closed by NPWS to non-lodge vehicles between June and October Long Weekends.
Part of the fun of staying on snow is getting here. Most people park at the Bullocks Flat Skitube Terminal and come up to Perisher Valley by skitube (see below).
Once you're at Perisher Valley, you'll ride up to us in an oversnow. This is a special purpose built vehicle for our unique environment.
As roads to our lodge are closed, you cannot drive up to our lodge to drop your bags off during ski season. Please see your options below on how to get to Perisher Valley.
Unless otherwise advised by our Manager, once you have arrived at Perisher Valley, proceed to the 4Site desk located inside the Perisher Skitube Terminal for your transfer to Valhalla (included in your tariff). You cannot book your oversnow transfer prior to arrival.
Free overnight parking is at Bullocks Flat Skitube Terminal. From Bullocks Flat it's about a 10minute skitube ride to Perisher Valley. Pre-purchase your ticket online. Select an overnight return pass. Tickets are date based, not time based. You cannot pre-book a tube departure time. Please note that time restrictions apply for guests traveling with luggage in peak hours, please see timetable for details.
Catching the skitube is VERY easy. Directions: Bullock Flat Skitube Terminal is about 15 minutes from Jindabyne. Heading out of Jindabyne on Kosciuszko Road, take the "Thredbo" turn off onto Alpine Way. Drive about 10minutes and the skitube turn off will be on your right, immediately after Lake Crackenback. Alpine Way is technically located below the snowline. Of course snow can fall below the snowline. Very rarely chains are required for this road so keep an eye on road/weather conditions for your arrival and departure days to be prepared.
Once you arrive at Bullocks Flat Skitube Terminal, unload your car in the designated unload area alongside the terminal and then park your car in the overnight car park. There are luggage trolleys for hire if you require that can be wheeled onto the tube. When you arrive in Perisher, your luggage can be taken up in the baggage lift which opens right next to the 4Site desk which is where you need to go next for your transfer up to our lodge. It really is very easy, no stress. Find out more about skitube.
Valet Parking/Shuttle and Private Car Transfers
As an alternative to skitube, there are a few local operators offering private 4WD, shuttle transfers and off mountain valley parking. Drive to Jindabyne, leave your car and be driven up to Perisher Valley.
Q. Can we park at Valhalla Lodge in ski season?
A. No. There is no overnight parking in ski season at our lodge nor on the mountain in Perisher. Free overnight Parking is off-mountain at Bullocks Flat SkiTube Terminal.
Q. Can we park in the Perisher Day Car Park?
A. No. The Perisher car park during ski season is for day parking only. Parking here overnight risks being fined plus damage to your car due to snow clearing operations.
Q. Can we drive up to Valhalla Lodge and drop our bags off?
A. No. You cannot drive all the way to Valhalla Lodge during ski season as there are road closures in place. We DO NOT recommend driving up to the Perisher day car park to drop your bags. This will add unnecessary time to your journey, you will require a NPWS pass, chains or a 4WD and you will probably encounter lengthy traffic and hazardous road conditions.
