At Troldhaugen Lodge we like to make your stay a memorable one. If you are interested in fitting yourself out with equipment, we can advise you on a preferred ski shop that we recommend in Jindabyne. During the season the shops open late as they realise many people travel to the snow for the weekend to have a ski or board. If you have not organised your equipment before you leave you will always find a place to set you up when you arrive. We can direct you to our preferred ski shop. All you need to do is on arrival ask.
FIRST TIME TO THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS
If this is your first time to the snow you will need to consider the following.
Troldhaugen Lodge is situated in Jindabyne about 40 minutes from the snow. There a few ways to access the snow fields.
- By Car If you decided to travel from Jindabyne to the snow you will need to CARRY CHAINS in your car if you enter the National Park in a TWO WHEEL DRIVE car. If you drive a AWD or 4WD you DO NOT need to carry chains. If you decide to drive up to the snow all you would need to know is found here. Alternatively you may opt to catch the shuttle or ski tube.

Hiring equipment – If your hire the equipment in Jindabyne we can offer you a discount just inform us on arrival and we can organise it for you or in the surrounding areas you have the option to change or replace equipment if it is not right. If you rent it away from the area you remove this option. Rates in the Snowy mountains are very competitive.
Lift Tickets -When purchasing lift tickets it is always cheaper to buy the package. If you purchase multiple days it will be cheaper. They have an offer buy 3 days you usually get a half day free. Think about what you might want to do and purchase it all together, such as Lessons, Equipment, and Skitube. If you purchase these items separately it is more expensive.
Clothing – It is important to have the correct clothing, in winter it is very cold in the mountains. The weather is very unpredictable so you will need to be prepared for all weather conditions.
Have Fun – If you consider the above items you will have a great time up in the mountains over Winter.
