Frequently Asked Questions
We have put together the following Tips and Tricks for you. We hope that this helps.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Official Check-in is 3.00pm and Check-out is 9.30am.
However you are more than welcome to arrive early and we will store you bags and have somewhere for you to change clothes to get out onto the snow.
Your bags will be in your room when you return for the snow
On Departure, we ask that you vacate the room by 9.30am. However we can store your bags while you squeeze in more time on the snow and return to Corroboree before you leave Perisher.
On arrival our Oversnow transport will pick you up at the Ski Tube Terminal in Perisher and bring you and your luggage over the snow to Corroboree. These transfers are available from 7.00am to 8.00pm. We are happy transfer outside these times, however additional fees may be applied.
We cater for all special Dietary needs. But we do ask that you let us know as early as possible. Our Chef cooks our meals specifically for the number of guests staying with us and he needs to cater for all dietary needs at least 24 hours in advance.
There are a few options for you to arrange Ski hire. There is no “best” option as it depends on your travel plans, your time of travelling and the number in your family or group. We would like to give you the following options so you can choose which best suits your plans.
Rhythm Snow Sports are in Cooma where it’s easy to stop and park on the way through and get all you need from them. Mention that you are staying at Corroboree and you will receive a 10% discount. They are open 24/7 during the winter months and you can go online and prearrange what you need. Go to http://www.rhythmsnowsports.com.au/ to check their details.
- Smiggin Holes
Snowline Ski Centre is in Smiggins which is a few minutes on a free shuttle bus down the road from Perisher. You can drop you gear off to Corroboree and then catch the free Shuttle to Smiggins to collect you hire equipment. Again, mention that you are staying at Corroboree and you will receive a 20% discount. This saves you having to carry ski gear with your luggage on arrival. However, it does mean that you have to come to Corroboree and then go out to get your hire equipment. The benefit of hiring on the mountain is that they are conveniently close if there is a problem with any equipment. Please note that Oversnow transfers to get the ski equipment are not included in our Tariff. Snowline’s website has more details. Go to https://rhythmsmiggins.com.au/
- Lake Crackenback Resort
Harro’s Snowsports is located in the Lake Crackenback Resort which is only 1 minute from the base of the Skitube terminal. If you are planning to use the Skitube then it’s a convenient stop to grab all your gear before you jump on a train. They are renowned for the quality of their equipment and their service. You can get more information from their website at http://www.harrosnowsports.com.au/
- Perisher Valley
The Perisher Valley Ski Centre have a comprehensive equipment hire shop in the main centre in Perisher. Being a much larger operation, the equipment available may not always be as good as the other options listed. However, their customer service has always been very good. And it’s close, it’s easy and this is where you go if you purchase a Ski Ticket “Bundle” that may include lessons and ski hire. Go to the Perisher website for more details http://www.perisher.com.au/lessons-hire/snowsports-hire.html
All Perisher’s ticketing system uses RFID technology. This means that the “Ski Ticket” is now a plastic card similar to a credit card and that, after you have your “Card”, all ticket transactions are to be done on-line. You can pre-purchase your “Card” on the Perisher Website and pick them up when you are in Perisher. You can then go online to “top up” the card as required so you no longer have to visit the ticket office.
Don’t over pack. We are a very casual lodge. You wear your ski gear all day so all you need is some comfortable clothes to wear for dinner and apres dinner.
Some people wear track suit pants and Ugg boots or slippers for breakfast and comfy jeans and shirt for dinner.
Corroboree is comfortably and warm, so you don’t need any jumpers inside.
It’s a good idea to bring your own afternoon snack for the kids. Kids are often hungry when come in from a day on the snow. We serve dinner for the kids at about 6pm so it might be a good idea to have your own snack for them at 4.30 – 5pm (2 minute noodles, biscuit, something that you would usual give them at home)
We try to encourage the guests leave the kids electronics at home. We have a lounge full of games and over 500 DVDs. They can build cubby houses and play with the other kids.
Please note that we do not allow any electronics in the dining area. We enforce this for the children and we politely request that all adults also comply.
Children play in the snow. It’s fun to build a snowman but gloves get very wet. It’s a good idea to bring 2 pairs of gloves for the children. They can wear one while the other pair are drying.
Ski school is often booked out. It’s a good idea to book online early to ensure that you can secure the package that best suits you.
Car valet is a great idea. Especially when you have children. It’s convenient and cost effective.
