Get your skis strapped in and scoot out the front door at these ski-in, ski-out Snowy Mountains stays. The famous New South Wales snowfields are dotted with lodgings that are right on the snow, near the chairlifts and ready to welcome you into a cozy room after an action-packed day.

On-the-slope chalets at Thredbo

A stay on the Thredbo slopes means instant access to the longest ski runs in the country, a lively après-ski scene and a bulging calendar of winter events. Score the first chairlift of the day by bedding down at River Inn, right next to Friday Flat (where ski and snowboard lessons start) and close to the base of the Gunbarrel Express chairlift. Warm up post-ski by the crackling fireplace or with a drink at the rustic bar. Then crash with your team at the end of the day in self-contained rooms with bunk beds, fold-out couches and kitchenettes, or cosy up with your loved one in a king room.

Wake up in luxury as snow falls outside your window at Thredbo’s Ski In Ski Out Chalets, then suit up for a run on Crackenback Supertrail, which sits right at the base of the village (you can even see other skiers whisk past from your window). Here, you’ll find 25 fully equipped chalets with one to five bedrooms, fireplace-centred living rooms and balconies featuring your own barbecue. For extra indulgence, choose a chalet with a private spa or sauna for post-ski decompression.

Take your pick of memorable stays at Perisher

Experience Perisher at its epic best, with an on-snow stay at a ski resort that opens onto 1,245 hectares of skiable terrain, including 47 lifts to ride across four main areas: Perisher Valley, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega. During the day, the slopes may be bustling with other adventurers, but by sunset the day-tripping crowd will head down to Bullocks Flat, leaving you to take in the enchanting Snowy Mountains scenery in serenity.

Barely a two-minute walk from Perisher Valley’s Perisher Quad Express Chair is the stylish Corroboree Ski Lodge, which offers spacious rooms and a large lounge. Solo and spirited travellers can join the lively atmosphere at the bar, and families can give the kids an early meal before sending them to the games room for a movie while they enjoy a three-course meal without interruption.

You can’t get much closer to the ski lifts than the Perisher Valley Hotel. The modest hotel, just 100m from the base of the Village 8 Express chairlift, has rooms sleeping two to five, most with stunning views of the slopes. When you’ve retired for the day, join the après-ski crowd at the bar or recline while you pick your next run from your bedroom window.

Other memorable, atmospheric options include the family-owned Perisher Manor, which entices keen skiers and families with its proximity to the Village 8 Express chairlift, not to mention the scenic in-house Base 1720 Bar & Restaurant. At Barrakee Ski Lodge you can treat yourself to a three-course modern Australian meal after a relaxing stint in the sauna, all just 50m from the North Perisher T-Bar.

Outside of Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes village provides a more intimate scene; book into Smiggins Hotel and Chalet Apartments for easy ski lift access, a kids’ club and daycare. Or, immerse yourself more deeply in the mountain scenery at the cosy Guthega Inn in Guthega, where you can gaze upon Mount Kosciuszko as you eat breakfast.

Escape to snowbound Charlotte Pass

The highest snow resort in Australia, Charlotte Pass is a ski-in, ski-out dream, with every door of every hotel opening onto the slopes. As it’s also encircled in snow over the winter (the only way to access it is over snow transport) and encompasses just four ski lifts, it has an intimate, slower-pace feel set up for families, romantic getaways and beginner skiers.

The stone walls and old-world charm of the Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel, launched in 1930 and rebuilt after a grand fire, lets you imagine what it would have been like skiing a century ago. Drop off little skiers at the complimentary kids’ club while you can tackle more advanced slopes, maybe followed by a hot toddy at the Adams Cocktail Lounge and a hearty meal at onsite fine dining restaurant Arches.

Knockshannoch Ski Lodge claims to be the smallest and friendliest lodge at Charlotte Pass. The people-focused ski-in ski-out lodging, built in 1940, has only six bedrooms but makes sure all skiers feel welcome with three hearty meals a day (kids are specially catered for depending on their age). Or book into Lucy Lodge, a no-frills but scenic stay that sits next to the Kosciuszko Triple Chair. Inside the building is China King, the local stop for deep-fried ice cream, chicken and corn soup, and a simple pie and chips. Other options include the Stillwell Hotel, a popular stay for summer hikers sporting modest rooms and a deck that welcomes non-guests for post-ski margaritas with views of the snow-draped mountains.
