We are have been having our annual ski holiday at Providence Lodge for the last 3 seasons. Our visit planned for August 2013 will make it 4 on the trot. I think you would be very hard pressed to find better value accomodation anwhere near snow in NSW. The accomodation is basic but very comfortable and functional. The bonus of the electric blankets makes for a very comforatble nights sleep after a long day of skiiing. We have always found Wayne and Chris to be very friendly and accomodating Hosts, with Kevin (the cook) dishing up very generous hearty home style meals on a regular basis, his tomato soup being a very popular dish for our children. They have always shown flexibility with any special requests we have had diet wise which has been a blessing. Part of going away on a skiiing holiday has been the ability to relax at the end of the day and that is where the Lodge comes into its own. The drying room for your ski gear and separate drying cupboard for your boots always ensures that you have dry and warm gear ready for the next morning. In the main room there is comfortable lounges and a fireplace burning away allowing you to relax and chat with other guests before and after eating. The communal refrigerator allows you take take and store your own beverages, saving you the expense of paying top dollar for the same as you would at other licensed premises that do not allow byo.
There is a separate heated room with a pool table, T.V and games to keep the kids occupied which is also a bonus.
We have also visited at Easter, a must do for anyone to see snowy country from a completely different perspective, although we stayed in one of the cabins on that occasion, whilst very comfortable and more modern did not have the same atmosphere and convenience of Kevin cooking for you that the lodge has.
