Driving to Perisher

Whatever your preference in getting to the Snowy Mountains, On Snow Reservations are happy to help you find the best possible way for you and your group to help take the hassle out of organising a holiday! The NSW Snowfields are easy to get to with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to Canberra. From there, you can either hire a car or catch a coach transfer to the snow.

Snow Chains: It is a requirement that all vehicles except 4WDs carry properly fitting chains at all times on the road to Perisher Valley. These can be hired at most service stations on your way to Jindabyne or we can organize them for you from our Jindabyne Hire Partner.

Kosciuszko National Park entry:怎样玩大乐透 You will be required to pay an entry fee for the National Park (Perisher Valley lies inside the National Park) which is $29 per vehicle per day if you are proceeding into the village, whether you are parking overnight or for the day only. Alternatively you can purchase an annual pass for $190. These passes can be purchased from Jindabyne in the Snowy Region Visitors Centre, or at the National Parks gates as you pass through.

Day Parking: There is ample free DAY PARKING ONLY available in the Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes car parks. See below for overnight parking information.

Overnight Parking and Skitube (Alpine Railway)

What is the Skitube?

Perisher’s Skitube is a rack-rail train that takes passengers from Bullocks Flat (on the Alpine Way – 18km from Jindabyne) through a tunnel in the Ramshead Range to Perisher Resort. The first stop is the underground station at Perisher Valley, and then the train continues on to Blue Cow through the Perisher Range.

the tunnel is 6.3km long and at its deepest level is 550m below the surface. generally the trip time is 10 minutes uphill and 20 minutes downhill.

Where do I park when catching the Skitube?

When you arrive at Bullocks Flat you’ll find free day and overnight parking. As the station is located below the snow line, no National Park fees apply, and generally you won’t require chains. The carpark is patrolled by security.

How do I transport my luggage and ski gear on the train?

If you are staying in Perisher overnight and catching the train to reach your accommodation in Perisher Valley, it is best to park in the drop off zone at the front of the building to drop off your luggage, then park your vehicle in the overnight car park. Luggage trolleys (similar to those you would find at an airport) are available for use, and concourse staff are on hand for every train trip to assist you on and off the train. They will place your family and luggage in a specific car on the train for ease of getting on and off the train.

What do I do when I arrive in Perisher?

When your train arrives, you will be greeted by Perisher concourse staff who will assist you off the train with your luggage, and will help you onto the lift to get your luggage to the top level of the building. From there, you will be able to contact your accommodation provider to arrange oversnow transport if required.

How much does the Skitube cost?

for up to date pricing on skitube tickets (both daily tickets and single return tickets for those staying on-mountain) please contact your friendly on snow reservations consultant.
