Conveniently placed between a handful of New South Wales' ski fields, Jindabyne is an ideal stepping stone to snow-filled adventures. Being a short drive away, it does offer more accommodation options – and more affordable ones – than staying right on the slopes and has easier access to amenities like large grocery stores.
Plus, there's a lot more to do in the Jindabyne area than just skiing and snowboarding at nearby Thredbo, Charlotte Pass and Perisher.
Jindabyne is at least a two-hour trip from nearby cities, but there are a few options for getting there whether you want to drive yourself, take a coach or fly in.
Flying: Direct flights to Snowy Mountains Airport, which is about 30 minutes from Jindabyne, are available with Rex. The flight from Sydney takes about an hour.
Jindabyne town is relatively small, so if you're staying in the town centre you should be able to get to shops and restaurants by foot.
If you need to get from Jindabyne to the slopes at Thredbo or Perisher, you can either drive yourself or book yourself a seat on a shuttle – which could be the best option if you're not comfortable driving in snowy conditions.
To get from Jindabyne to Perisher, you can either drive right to the ski area, or just to the Skitube – which is a train that will take you to the resort.
If you choose to drive, you'll need to pay the National Park fee for your vehicle and you may need to put chains on your tyres. If you opt for the Skitube, you won't have to pay the fee and don't require chains.
Most winter tourism in Jindabyne is centred on the area's ski resorts – Perisher, Thredbo and Charlotte Pass.
Other than skiing and snowboarding, you can also go tobogganing, or just enjoy the apres-ski culture at the pubs, bars and restaurants in town after a day on the slopes.
In summertime, the Jindabyne area and nearby Kosciuszko National Park is an ideal spot to go mountain biking, bushwalking and horseback riding through the alpine landscape.
With plenty of walking and biking trails along the shore, like the Lake Jindabyne Foreshore Trail, Lake Jindabyne also has various boat ramps if you're keen to explore the area.
