    Hey brains trust,

    My partner is hoping to introduce some of his work mates to skiing on the weekend of 13/14 Sep, and they are looking for accommodation with say 10-12 beds. They haven’t decided on Thredbo or Perisher yet, and are also considering staying in Jindabyne.

    Any recommendations would be welcome, thanks in advance :)

    I wouldn't introduce anyone to skiing at Thredbo on the 13/14 sept.
    Low tide slushy crap.

    Perisher via Jindy all the way.

    Is that multiple rooms or dormitory style?

    Rooms for 4-6 people will be cheap at The Station or Ski Rider by then. Both have dining rooms and bars onsite. Not haute cuisine by any means, more pub/club bistro style. Ski Rider also has gear hire onsite.

    The scout Alpine Activity Centre in Jindy would also be a cheap option, but tends to be fully booked for scout and school groups. If available, they have 2 dorms and 5 or 6 "family" rooms with about 6 beds.

    The Station is your best option. Get 3 rooms (most rooms are 6 berth) to give a bit of extra space. Six per room with skis etc is a squeeze.
