Read about why our guests love Ski Rider

We had a wonderful stay at Ski Rider and want to thank the excellent team. In particular, bar-person extraordinaire Chloe; bus driver Mick; and ski rental + front desk etc person Amy. Thank you so much. Great meals; the daily variety with BBQ fish (we don’t eat meat) was excellent. Only issue for us was internet access. Apart from that, we give Ski Rider a hugely positive recommendation. Cheers. Kate and Elspeth



Thanks for a lovely stay at the snow. We had a lovely, fun and relaxing time staying with Skirider and skiing/snowboarding at Perisher. We really appreciated the convenience of hiring our gear from you, the shuttle to and from the slope and the delicious hot breakfast and dinners. Our room was always warm and we enjoyed not having a TV in it (no news for a couple of days and reconnecting through conversation with the family is always good). All the staff were helpful and friendly, making Our stay more enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending Skirider to friends. Thanks again for making our short break so rejuvenating.

Thanks for a fantastic stay, we loved the stay and how easy it was to get things done 🙂 Best snow holiday for the boys and for us mums as we didn’t have to worry about cooking or entertainment as everything was provided. Look forward to coming back.



I just wanted to tell you my wife and myself and another family of four have just had the Best short holiday we have ever had at your hotel, the rooms were basic but very clean and had everything we needed and the food was tops and plenty of it , but the Highlight of the holiday was the staff ,not one thing was an effort they really , i mean really made you feel welcome ,and getting to the snow was Mick the bus driver he was more of a friend than an employee always making sure everyone was safe to and from the snow , this is a well managed team,we are re booking for our next snow holiday here .

Fantastic place to stay, convenient to Jindabyne and the snow, great facilities, yummy food, most professional, friendliest staff on the mountain!



We recently spent 3 days at the Ski Rider. It provided us with everything that we wanted i.e. short travel time to the ski fields, convenience of a shuttle bus to get us to and from the ski fields, hire for ski equipment and ski clothes, breakfast and dinner (food was great) every day and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. The staff at the Ski Rider were very friendly and helpful at all times. My family and I look forward to returning to the Ski Rider for future ski holidays.

Great value for money. Staff were excellent, food great. didnt miss tv in room at all but a small bar fridge would be good for medications that cant be frozen but need refrigeration – wasn’t game to leave outside my door.
We went with our 8 year old and he loved it, so did we. Would definately go back.



Just wanted to say how impressed we were with our stay at Ski Rider over the weekend! Great family time, really comfortable accommodation and the food was unbelievably good! The staff could not do enough to make our stay so good. Thanks for everything, we’ll definitely be back!



After spending a week at the Ski Rider we can highly recommend. All staff (including reception, shuttle, bar, restaurant and Ski Hire) were very friendly and accommodating. Thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment especially the Duo, Trivia night and Magic Show. The Dining menu is top quality – getting to chose your own cut of meat from a large selection is fantastic. Rooms were comfortable, clean and warm. Ski Hire on the premises made it easy – especially if you had to make a change. Our group of 25 were all impressed and I’m sure will be back 1 day. Kids had an absolute ball. Thank you

Thanks to all the staff at Ski Rider for the amazing holiday we had there last week.
The rooms are perfect for a skiing vacation, beautifully warm after a full day on the slopes. We love the warming racks for drying our clothes and for warming up towels.
I loved getting ready in the room and taking the bus up to the slopes. In the past I stayed down the mountain, and driving up everyday and having to dress in the carpark was not nearly as enjoyable as hopping on the bus for the short trip to the slopes, or coming home on the bus and going straight to a shower (Luxury:) ) It is very close to ski-in ski-out accommodation without the huge price-tag.
I enjoyed not having to worry about food everyday as well. The food was good every meal. My wife and children being Vegetarian, the special meals the kitchen made for them were very appreciated. Everyone enjoyed the Breakfast and Dinners very much.
Your staff are so great. A big congratulations to the Management for having such extraordinary staff. The Staff are all smiling and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, I am sure that there is no accidents in that.
I spoke to some staff members on the ski fields and they all told me how great they are treated at Ski Rider . . it comes through in the way they were with us all week. Good job.
Also I want to thank you for the entertainment during the week. The Magician was very funny and some of his tricks the kids are still talking about.
I recommend Ski Rider for anyone who wants to have a trouble free snow holiday or weekend and who just wants a good room, hot meals, and easy access to the slopes.
We will be back next year.

We’ve just had the most enjoyable week at Skirider. The staff are friendly, the service is top notch and the food is absolutely fantastic. The hire shop staff are very efficient and professional and happy to provide any advice needed. All this made the experience something to remember and we’ll definitely be staying there again next year. Thanks you so much.

Have stayed at the Ski Rider for the last four years with a group of over 20 people and we are coming back again in 2014.   The closeness of the drive to Perisher is fantastic. The whole staff at the Ski Rider over the past four years have been brilliant, I have brought new people each year I have come down to the Ski Rider and they bring new people with them the following year with our group.
Looking forward to this years trip with more new people.

Our family and the Rogers family have just spent last weekend with the Ski Rider experience.  We have not stayed here before and were recommended from a friend , the draw card was the two hot meals per day.  We were over the moon with the set up of Ski Rider, the toasty warm rooms and dining areas.

The running of the breakfast and dinner is a well oiled machine, staff friendly, efficient, never standing around always busy! It is wonderful to see young adults working well and hard! I very much look forward to my 16 year old son to be able to have this opportunity of working at a place such as Ski Rider!

Thank you for a great stay will be back …

We really couldn’t have asked for a better holiday. My boyfriend and I just got back from a week-long stay at Ski Rider and it was exceptional. The booking process was very easy and efficient; all our questions were answered immediately and the staff went that extra step by helping us arrange travel when we were unsure. They went out of their way to make our stay stress-free. The accommodation was basic but warm and comfortable. Entertainment was a lot of fun, as were the pool tables and TV room. The meals were delicious! Full buffet breakfast and dinner; we were very impressed with the quality of all the food and loved the idea of cooking our own meat each night. Ski hire was efficient. The shuttle bus to the snow was convenient and the driver was great fun! Had a great time up at the slopes and then when we came back to Ski Rider each evening we felt welcome and comfortable. Easy to make friends as well! The staff were absolutely wonderful – the whole trip went smoothly because the staff were so knowledgeable, kind and willing to help all the time. Lots of friendly smiles! Almost a metre of snow fell while we were there and Ski Rider looked so beautiful – great for kids and families, too. We were certainly looked after 100% and really loved our stay. Thank-you Ski Rider for an incredible week; we’ll be back!
