With the announcement that the Epic Aus Pass is going ahead, I now have to look at my plans and consider the options. I am currently booked in at Perisher, taking my 4yo for a week from August 9 to 14 - but the primary reason for going to Perisher has gone as I am now 99% sure that even if the kids classes resume by then, snowboarding is off the cards. So instead I am looking at going to Hotham, where ski school will cost a bit more, but the accommodation and travel should be far less. So I am looking for suggestions on where to stay. It will either be just the two of us, or possibly his aunt also. I'm happy to share a bed with him (he usually climbs in with us anyway). I'm currently paying around $1,900 for a fully catered stay in Perisher, so I'd rather not grab an apartment that's going to cost more than that just to stay slightly closer to Melbourne. I am beyond sad the Gravbrot isn't operating, as that was where I was planning on going, but maybe another year. Since I am hoping to have the little one in ski school, I'm guessing that I should look for somewhere near to the Big D?
