There is more to do than just ski! Tobogganing, tubing, snow-shoeing, hiking, groomer tours, scenic chairlift rides, Charlotte Pass day trip, photography tours, massages and more!
Our suggestions for the non-skiing partner:
Take the skitube to Blue Cow and meet your companion for lunch or a drink at the bar. The views from the balcony are awesome.
For the energetic, snow shoe to Porcupine Rocks (2.5hrs) for an amazing lookout.
Snow shoe/walk up to Alpine Eyre Cafe and meet your companion for the tastiest of burgers.
Take the scenic chairlift (cost involved) up to Mid Station for an extra special hot chocolate or lunch with your companion before riding right to the top for some amazing views.
Take the shuttle bus across to Smiggin Holes for a change of scenery.
Take a day trip to Charlotte Pass.
Relax in our TV room and watch a dvd or curl up on our sun drenched lounge with a good book.
There are a couple of great bars and restaurants to hang out in within the Perisher area, some with views of the slopes from which you can watch your companions or kids in ski school.
Perisher Ski Resort is the largest ski resort in the southern hemisphere with 7 mountain peaks, 1,245 hectares of skiable area and about 50 ski lifts and tows.

After a hearty breakfast, step outside Valhalla Lodge, clip in and enjoy the quick downhill run to the footbridge at the Perisher Centre. From here you have access to the Village 8 Express, Mitchell T-bar, Perisher Ski School and the Tom Thumb beginners area plus the other 3 interlinking resorts. There is plenty of varying terrain to explore!
Don't hesitate to ask our knowledgable staff for their recommendation of the best area in which to head to given the day's conditions.
After a fun day on the slopes, take the easy way home with a complimentary oversnow transfer.
Note: If you are unable to ski out from the lodge due to conditions or ability, then it is an easy short downhill walk (approximately 10minutes) or you can book an oversnow taxi at your own expense.

"A one minute ski down to the lifts in the morning and beautiful views over Perisher Valley". Sarah Q, tripadvisor 7/8/17
Valhalla Lodge is located within Kosciuszko National Park, the largest National Park in NSW. It covers over 670,000 hectares. Kosciuszko National Park abounds in natural beauty containing the famous Snowy River, the NSW ski fields, spectacular caves and gorges and the highest mountain on the Australian mainland.
There are nine wilderness areas and the alpine and sub-alpine areas have plant species that are found nowhere else in the world. Kosciuszko is home to the rare mountain pygmy possum and corroboree frog. Listed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Kosciuszko National Park is internationally recognised for its significant natural heritage.
Park entry fees are applicable to all park visitors but are included in your skitube tariff for winter visitors.
Starting practically right outside Valhalla, there are kilometres upon kilometres of cross country trails for you to enjoy, with no trail fees to pay. It is only 200m to the Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter. Many trails are groomed daily giving the classic skier, the skater and the tourer a choice of trails to ski on. Depending on snow conditions you can have up to 50 km of groomed trails to explore between Perisher, Charlotte Pass and Smiggin Holes.
Valhalla Lodge is perfectly located for your next alpine adventure. We are only moments to the slopes and cross country tracks are right by the lodge, but there is so much more to discover...... tobogganing, tubing, snow-shoeing, hiking, groomer tours, scenic chairlift rides, Charlotte Pass day trip, photography tours, massages and more!
Staying on snow at Valhalla means you can top off a great day with more on snow fun. For most of ski season we are usually completely snowbound so there is still plenty of snow action available after the lifts close! Try tobogganing, snow-shoeing, building snowmen / snow sculptures, snow cricket, snow angels or just have a snow ball fight.
Out of ski season hike the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, discover Blue Lake, Rainbow Lake, Porcupine Rocks and many other walking tracks, go mountain biking, cross country biking, road biking, abseiling, climbing, road running and more! Why not book your adventure with a local experienced guide: K7Adventures and/or Wilderness Sports
