Stayed at Ski Rider for a week in August 2016, it is very convenient and has the basics (Shower/Bed/Heating and 15 minute drive to the snow). Only disappointing things was no tv in room and the bed was hard. But would stay again as the positives out way the neg's

We arrived to a very friendly and helpful receptionist, we both have a gluten intolerance and this was catered for in a basic way, apart from that, the food was fantastic and plenty of it, even with allergies you would be hard pressed not to find something great to eat. I put on weight after five days even though I... More

Could only stay for one night, but it was so worth it. The third time I've stayed at ski rider now and really enjoyed it. Make sure you get the grill menu when you book, so you can pick your own bit of steak, fish or chicken to cook on the BBQ there, yeah it's more expensive but who cares... More

Stayed a week with the family during our first ski holiday. The room was very basic but we knew that when booking and it met our needs. Food was great, especially enjoyed the BBQ option. Staff were excellent, planning our next stay already. Excellent value.

Good location, close to Smiggins / Perisher however don't expect to much. Good for a few days on a ski trip where you only need a bed and somewhere to eat. Food was average however at least there's no shortage. I have specific dietary requirements which were poorly catered for. Its accommodation targeted for the younger skiing fraternity as distinct...

In particular, guests with dietary requirements are amongst those who speak most highly. I would welcome your... More

Great location however it's a glorified backpacker hostel... Food is the only good thing but you definately pay for it... $600 a head for the week and it's 4 bunk beads, no fridge, no sink, no tv! , no tables, no anything. And they don't even clean the sheets for the whole week... Close to mountain but that's about it.

I had not stayed at the Ski Rider for a number of years and decided to stay again this year. It is a great place for families and caters well for that, but for those who do not have children with them there is no place to have "grown up time". There are two bars and both are open to... More

Close enough to Perisher and Jindabyne that you can easily visit both, the Ski Rider in Wilson's Valley is a great and relatively inexpensive place to stay in the mountains. Decent food, great atmosphere in the bar and a handy shuttle to and from Perisher. Plenty to like about this place!

I have been organising a group (average 25 people which has included singles, couples, families with children as young as 2yrs to teens) for a snow holiday for over 10 years now and have always stayed at SkiRider.

Hi Stan, It is wonderful to be able to accommodate the 'Janski Group' each year and that you continue to choose Ski Rider for your snow holiday. Thank you for your positive feedback towards all departments. Like your group, many of our staff and department heads return to Ski Rider year after year. These return staff contribute to the 'family'... More
