Jonkl: We stayed down at Jindy this year and the price was really good at Discovery Park, albeit off season-ish first week of Sept, but we got upgraded to a nice deluxe room for the price of a shared bathroom room price :) Will have a look at skirider for next year, will definitely avoid the Friday arvo if we can, we are well past the party age.
Even though the ski lifts at Mt. Buffalo are defunct , I still see snow boarders doing their thing at Cresta valley at Mt. Buffalo when conditions are right. Admission is free and kids love sliding on the snow there too. Accommodation can be found at a number of places in the Ovens valley.

neilmny: Have a look at Ski Rider at Wilson Valley. We stayed there (whole tribe) a few times and the cost was fairly reasonable for a high season snow trip. It's not right on the snow but has a free shuttle bus that will take you to and from Perisher a few times a day. Link TIP - They used to offer an extra night for free for mid week stayers (Monday to Friday). Don't take it! All the weekenders come in on Friday arvo pumped up to party when all the midweekers are stuffed from a week of skiing and want sleep and they are out of control or they were the time we took the bonus night! Perisher has the works as far as runs go and covers a huge area.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: I would say staying on the Mountain for downhill skiing in VIC. will cost more than in nearby towns . The price of accommodation in nearby towns increases during the white season .The price of a daily ski lift ticket is something I have no knowledge of. I am a Nordic skier. I ski/Herringbone / skin up hills !!! Daily admission using your own car( car parking day visit permit) to Falls Creek , Mt.Hot ham , Mt.Baw Baw and Mt.Buller ranges from AUD$55 to $60 per day. The KNP in NSW costs AUD$29.00 per day. Some people stay in Dinner Plain and take the bus to Mt.Hot ham. The resort at Hot Ham runs the shuttle bus quite frequently during peak downhill ski season . Other skiers stay in nearby Omeo , drive up to Dinner Plain and then take the bus. If you are new to Lifted skiing then Dinner Plain has a green run with a poma lift( downhill ski slope) as well as a net work of XC ski trails. The road from Harrietville to Mt.Hot ham is quite steep in places and is sometimes closed due to extreme conditions. That is why staying in Omeo is better. The road is not as steep/more forgiving and is rarely shut although 2WD vehicles must fit chains where indicated. Mt.Baw Baw as a resort is small but has downhill skiing and lifted groomed runs for most levels of ability (less black diamond/ extreme terrain) , accommodation options and is set in a beautiful place in the Baw Baw N.P.. It comes with plenty of XC ski options incl. the BC XC ski route out of the resort into the Nat. Park.Being situated at a lower elevation(1500 M.) the possibility that the snow may not be sufficient for snow sports is worth considering. Mt.Baw Baw offers lift tickets all day for $35 on Wednesdays only. I love Falls Creek .It has so much terrain for skiers, snowboarding and my activity which is Nordic skiing. Others on the forum will be able to tell you what staying at Falls Creek costs, price of lift tickets etc. . Some people stay in nearby Mt. Beauty or Tawonga and take the daily bus service to Falls Ck. which is much cheaper than paying for multiple overnight parking. If you fly in from QLD then there are buses that shuttle people from Melb. to Mt. Hotham, Falls Creek , Mt. Buller etc. so driving your own car from QLD would be tiresome, time consuming and costly. Mt.Buller is also worthwhile for downhill skiing but I know very little about it as a skier because I go to Mt. Stirling for Nordic skiing . It is next door to Mt. Buller but it is managed by the same administration. If you ever become interested in Nordic skiing then the options increase and the costs generally decrease.
Thanks, i am not so much of a skier, let alone Nordic..haha...me and my wife are snowboarders, so downhill runs are our only options this stage, occasionally hitting the park for a few low level jumps and box runs just for fun. The only skier in our family is our eldest daughter soon turning 5 :) Thank you for the info across the VIC boarder, we will keep that in mind in the future, for now, Considering the travel and accommodation cost, I think we will stay within KNP, possibly a visit to CHarlotte Pass or Selwyn.

Perisher is Ozstriya's largest ski lifted resort with all manner of terrain. The road up there is nothing like the Baw Baw or Hot Ham road.In season the XC skiing is good too.

Jonkl: Where can you stay besides the Chalet Hotel and do they have special passes for the Oversnow mobile, it seems a bit steep if I stay around Jindy and get hit $100+ pp each day? Are their "Blue" runs really blue or more like "advance green"?

Mister Tee on XC Skis: If you are based in the ACT or NSW then the locations you have mentioned are worthwhile. However for a major one week snow sports trip some of our locations here in VIC. are good too. However the KNP is overall cheaper to access on a daily basis using your own car.

Jonkl: Hi everyone, we are a new snow loving family and just started our journey of snowboarding and skiing. Been to Perisher couple of times this season and it was quite good, pricing seems reasonable as we went during Sept. Next year, will be taking our two little Miss along, 4 and 5, and just looking at options. Seems like Selwyn and Charlotte Pass are decent mountain for little kids to learn their trade, comparing to Perisher and Thredbo?? Hoping to get some pointers if its worth it to visit Selwyn or Charlotte Pass next year, lift prices, and area to stay? Also driving condition, ease of access and generally how much snow do they get over he course of the season? Many thanks in advance

Jonkl: What are club lodges? Sorry I'm really new to all these stuffs.
so theres the resort owned accom and theres private lodges as well, both catered and non catered. non resort are SASC, targangil, arlberg, snowbird, pygmy, knockshanock (i cant spell), jerrabomberra, spencers and KAC, im sure they will all be helpful with pricing n info.
7/10/19 - 11:52pm
Jonkl: Do these deals normally come out early in the year and can you set an alert with Groupon to notify you such deals when they come out?
I tend to keep an eye out for these deals on Groupon/Scoopon/etc each year around Feb/March

citizenkane: the blue runs are pretty short and fairly easy but theres plenty if you look around for the advanced and its the best place to be when the snow its on. my boy has been ripping around there every year for the last 5 and loves it! but i would look into the various club lodges if i were you, they cater for all budgets and needs, have a look into it.

chicski: My kids learned to ski at CP, was awesome. We stayed there for a week each year. Bit more of a hassle for day trips. Selwyn also a great spot for learners and easier to access. Season is generally shorter.

CP is great for kids! Accomodation can be more expensive as itís isolated but back in the day we booked early and got reasonable deals. Itís a very special place to stay.
