    Long story short, I’ve been messed about and let down for accomodation for a short trip this week, so now need something for two nights Wednesday and Thursday in Jindabyne . Booking sites are above my price range. Anyone know of anywhere that may be available or any tips?

    Thank you!

    Backpacker bed at the caravan park near the Thredbo turnoff. Was $44/night 3 or 4 years ago IIRC.

    Pretty much always sleep in my car at the Ski tube. It’s all good. I bought a cot mattress at K-mart for the back with the seats down. I’m short so I can even fully stretch out :)

    Are you planning to ski at Thredbo or Perisher?
    I know that some of the Lodges are starting to slow down in terms of bookings so a bed in a lodge might suit you.
    I just had a look and Schuss Lodge at Thredbo has beds available on Wednesday and Thursday night. Lodges in Jindy or Perisher might be worth a look.

    There is also some reasonable stuff available on booking sites.
    eg:
    Sonnblick lodge 2 nights inc breakfast $347

    If you dont mind sharing Dorm room at Snowy Mountains Jindy $98 for 2 nights.
