Motorists are legally required to carry properly fitting chains in any vehicle other than 4WD's in a
'snow-ice' risk section within the National Park. It's an easy half hour drive from Jindabyne in good weather.
Entry to the National Park is $29* per car per day. Annual passes are $190* *please check the NPWS website as these prices may have changed.

Driving from Canberra, take the Monaro Highway to Cooma, then the Snowy Mountains Highway to Jindabyne. Continue through the town on the Kosciuszko Road to Perisher. Our hotel is located on Kosciuszko Road, next to the fire station.
Ski Tube - Alpine Railway
Skitube is a convenient and innovative train ride from Bullocks Flat through the Ramshead range onto Perisher Valley in 10 minutes.
Because the Bullocks Flat Terminal is well below the normal snow line and only 20km from Jindabyne, it's an easy drive. Frequent train services run to Perisher Valley and on to Blue Cow. A Skitube pass includes the Kosciuszko National Park entry fee.
You can leave the car in the overnight security patrolled carpark at the Bullocks Flat Skitube Terminal free of charge and travel to Perisher via Skitube.
We are pleased to offer a porter service for luggage from the ski tube to our reception.
