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!

We had 3 couple stay last July and no complaints whatsoever from all 6 of us. Yes basic rooms, no tv but who cares. That’s what we expected and we were there for the skiing not hanging in a room. Fantastic bars and good meals. Staff were exceptional and friendly. Coming again in August this year.

“THE BEST TRIP EVER” stayed at the SKI RIDER on the 9 sep 2013. Had the most helpful and happy team of workers that looked after us for 4 days.The meals were great to cook, your choice of meat and help your self with salad or veg & buffet breakfast or dinner was fantastic for those who chose not to cook! Ski hire came with the stay and was fitted at the Ski Rider no need to go else where for hire. Free bus to and from snow was fantastic no need to drive up the hill.
This was by far, the best value trip

Would just like to say, we checked out today after 5 nights and we could not fault your establishment in any way.
All of the staff from the dining room, bar, ski hire and reception were exceptional in their roles. They were friendly, efficient and made our stay hassle free. It was evident that they enjoy their jobs.
The chefs did a fabulous job with the variety of food available and the catering to accommodate adults and children was great.
It was our first trip to the snow ever and our family thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, it definitely won’t be our last.
Many thanks to your team!

A big THANK YOU to all the great friendly staff at ski rider. You all do a great customer service!
We came on a bus trip with Port Stephens Coaches last weekend with our family, and received so much help and smiles.
Reception staff and all the food servery staff were so polite. We couldn’t believe there were so many staff, things got cleared ASAP. The place was so tidy too.
Mick in the ski shop helped us with a few things. Please pass on our thanks. Nothing seemed a trouble for anyone.
We really loved how the rooms were all separate entries too, and the shuttle bus is soo great.
You must have a really good Manager to have happy, helpful staff and efficient run hotel.
It was our first stay there, and we are really satisfied.
Thanks Ski Rider
Keep up the Great work,
And let the staff know they are doing a great job!

End of season 5 day visit. Great staff, food, location. Definately coming back. Cheers

I was looking for a late season deal and Ski Rider offered a fantastic rate with meals and hire.  As a single traveler, good deals are often hard to find. The staff were all friendly, welcoming and efficient, and the shuttle bus made getting to and from Perisher a swift and simple process. Meals were generous and the room, although basic, was warm and comfy. Having a decent hire outlet on site was a bonus and the equipment offered was matched to my ability and well maintained. I would recommend Ski Rider to anyone looking for an affordable snow holiday. The bus drops you right at the Perisher terminal, which is closer than most of the ‘on snow” options.

We just finished our first visit to Ski Rider for a week. The staff, accommodation and meals were fantastic 10 out of 10. I will definitely be back, thank you.

Rod - Marcus beach

Just had a great weekend at Ski rider.
Rooms are comfortable, central heated, with ample room to move around and hang the wet gear to dry. Beds are comfortable. There was ample hot water for showers.
The dining rooms provided excellent meals and entertainment.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly and smiling.
Thank goodness for the ski rider shuttle. Mick kept passengers informed during the bad road conditions and possible delays. We were pleased we were not driving back that night.
So convenient having the gear hired there and lift passes.
Having the change room is a luxury on the last day.
We will be back

We just had a great week at Ski Rider. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing service that we experienced by all members of the staff. Reception staff were quick to sort an issue with our room, and had us upgraded within 10mins. A problem with our broken snowboard was expertly handled by the ski hire/repair guys, (and they never charged us a cent, despite the board not being one of their rentals!) The dinners and breakfasts were top quality, and we loved the different entertainment each night. Our room was comfortable and warm and the drying racks were a lifesaver after a week in the rain. We will definitely be back as soon as possible, bringing friends and family!

Ashlee and Jason - Brisbane QLD

Can’t find better value for money anywhere else. Rooms were a let down but they made up for it with the dinners in the grill and the price. The perfect place for those who are first on the mountain and last off it and just want a warm bed each night. Will be coming here again soon!

We all had a fantastic time.  Ski Rider was a terrific place to stay – basic, but clean and tidy, and the staff were exceptionally helpful & friendly. We would definitely go back and stay there again!
