Stay where the fun doesn't stop or start with lifts. While others are navigating extreme traffic conditions, you'll be kicking back, enjoying the magic of life on snow. Skip the morning rush, enjoy a leisurely hot breakfast, ski out, build a snowman, throw snowballs, enjoy après by the fire and watch the sun go down.
Step outside, clip on your skis or strap on your board and ride off on your adventure!
Valhalla Lodge is perched hillside, commanding spectacular panoramic views across the face of Perisher Resort.

Perisher Snow Resort boasts 4 interlinking resort areas, 7 mountain peaks and about 50 lifts/tows.
The resort caters to all age and ability levels from beginner to expert.
It's only a 2 minute downhill ski from Valhalla to the Perisher Centre footbridge. From here you have direct access to Perisher Resort. Depending upon snow coverage you can reach all 4 resort areas by skiing across the resorts or alternatively Smiggin Holes can be reached by free shuttle bus and Blue Cow by free skitube.
If ability or conditions do not allow you to ski out, it's a short downhill walk (about 10minutes) to Front Valley, or you can organise an oversnow transfer at own expense.
Group and private lessons are available for all levels. We highly recommend pre-booking lessons to avoid disappointment.
Tickets, lessons, ski tube and on mountain hire can all be purchased online through the Perisher website. Unfortunately we do not have access to sell Perisher products.
Stay on mountain and ski under the lights. Night skiing is subject to conditions and operation by Perisher Snow Resort on set nights. For more details see here. Fireworks are subject to operation by Perisher Resort
To get you back to the lodge each afternoon with minimum fuss we include a complimentary oversnow transfer on non-arrival/departure days between 3:30pm - 5:00pm daily. If you wish to return at other times you can either walk (10mins) or take an oversnow "taxi" with 4Site at own expense. Oversnow transfers with baggage are included on arrival/departure days.
There are plenty of resort and non-resort cafes, pubs and restaurants dotted across the resort to stop for lunch, a cold beverage or hot chocolate. Speak with our staff in house.
We're not called Valhalla (Nordic Heaven) for nothing! Marked, groomed trails are located closely behind and across from our lodge.
There are kilometres upon kilometres of trails for you to enjoy with no trail fees to pay and no queues! Many trails are groomed daily.
The Perisher Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter is approximately 200m from our doorstep. This shelter offers day-use facilities for the cross country community and is often where lessons begin.
For the kids and the big kids at heart! Tobogganing is a fun and free activity, although you will need to supply or hire a toboggan. A specially designated tobogganing area is located near Perisher Ski Resort. Note that tobogganing is not permitted on Perisher Resort's ski slopes. Hire your toboggan before you get to Perisher, there is no longer toboggan hire available up here. Tobogganing is a high risk activity and all care should be taken.
No experience required and suitable for most ages and fitness levels.
To make the most of your adventure we recommend taking a half or full day trip with a local experienced guide. They know the best places to take you given the weather conditions of the day.
Snowshoes can be hired at Wilderness Sports in Perisher Valley.
Our location is perfect for making the most out of your snow holiday and enjoying more after ski on snow fun well after the lifts have shut! Build a snowman, have a snowball fight, play snow cricket, build an igloo, make jumps, slides, snow angels, sculptures and more!
The Charlotte Pass DayTripper package includes transfer by scenic oversow, lunch and your choice of a full mountain lift pass or a 2.5hour guided snowshoe tour.
The Perisher Skitube Terminal houses shops including a chemist, post office and food outlets. There are many public venues available outside of the resort.
Snowy Mountains Babysitting will come to Valhalla to mind your children. They offer a variety of services including evening, part and full-time care.
You're making the right choice, there is nothing like the magic of staying on snow! Ski lessons are available and are highly recommended for downhill and cross country skiing. Until you have mastered the art of balance, turning and stopping, you will not be able to ski out of Valhalla in the mornings. For convenience we would recommend hiring a "taxi" with 4Site to take you down to Perisher Snow Resort in the morning (this is at own expense). Alternatively it is a 10 minute walk. If you opt to walk you will require waterproof shoes / après boots / ski or snowboard boots. You might like to consider hiring a locker at Perisher Ski Resort as walking in ski boots and carrying ski gear can be overwhelming for the first timer (particularly if you are with kids).
To get you back with minimum fuss each afternoon we provide a complimentary transfer with 4Site between 3:30pm - 5:00pm on non-arrival/departure days.
If you have chosen to stay with us at Valhalla and have any questions about your holiday, please contact us, we are here to help!
