We purchased the beginner's package - 3 nights, dinners and breakfasts, a drink, ski clothing and equipment, 2 x 2.5hour lessons each over two days, and lift tickets.
We stayed in a refurbished deluxe unit and were very impressed. The bathroom was large, with washing machine and dryer. Bed was 2 king singles together and very comfortable. Didn't use the self-contained kitchen facilities as meals were provided, but they were more than adequate. The living area led to a balcony overlooking Lake Jindabyne.
The facilities were clean, fairly new, and surpassed our expectations. There was plenty of space for the two of us to spread out and relax. Despite not leaving our room till 11.30am both days, we came back each time to find it had been cleaned.
The ski shop on site was of great help to us first-time skiiers. Meals in the restaurant were more than adequate - something to suit every taste. Whilst it may not have been top quality restaurant food (more like café-style), we were there for the snow and not for expensive culinary delights. Breakfast was a typical hot and continental buffet.
We didn't have a problem driving 25mins to the snow - it's a nice drive and doesn't take that long. Parking was free and undercover, we had no trouble with our 4x4.
Highly recommend this place to those looking for an alternative to staying on snow and found the package great value. After paying our money, we didn't have to fork out for anything else the whole trip except for any drinks at the bar and the mountain pass ($27). It was nice to know that all our other needs were taken care of.
