Those not wanting to decide between Thredbo and Perisher (both incredible Australian ski resorts), can choose to stay in the town of Jindabyne. Rydges Horizons Snowy Mountains is conveniently located equidistant from the two prime ski locations, which can both be reached in less than a 30-minute drive.
Be rewarded at Rydges with uninterrupted views over Lake Jindabyne from the comfort of your self-contained apartment. Take advantage of a fully-equipped kitchen, as well as a washing machine and dryer, to clean up after a day on the slopes.
Embers Fireside Grill is there for when you’d rather not cook, allowing you to taste local rainbow trout and sample beers including Kosciuszko Pale Ale and Mountain Goat Organic Steam Ale. Visit the award-winning Wildbrumby Distillery on the way to Thredbo’s ski slopes to taste incredible schnapps produced from pears, apples, and raspberries sourced from the Snowy Mountain region. Find relief from any sore muscles you may get skiing on the mountain by paying a visit to the hotel’s Wellness Massage Centre.
The legend of the Man from Snowy River comes alive out here, where you can enjoy your own guided horseback riding adventure in the heart of the Snowy Mountains, possibly passing wild brumbies in the countryside. Hope that your horse’s horseshoes bring you luck when it comes to taking on the runs at Perisher Ski Resort, the largest ski resort in the Southern Hemisphere. Enjoy over four dozen lifts with runs catered to all skill levels. You’ll also find an exciting snow-tubing park.
