The first joint we stayed in at Perisher had "Schnappy hour" from about 6pm until whenever the manager's wife convinced him to stop handing them out half price, normally about 8 but anywhere up to 10pm. Was enjoyable. There's a Schnapps distillery just out of Jindabyne.Perisher.
Wasn’t there a disaster there a little while back?
Yep. Ran out of butterscotch schnapps by 10.30 one night and had to hit the Jaegermeister!!!
Laughed heartily just then.
Perisher (when you include the other couple of small resorts just down the road) is about triple the size of Falls, Digs.
Just more of everything. More accommodation options too, so most stuff is cheaper, and if you’re looking to save a lot, you can stay in Jindabyne (bout a 45min drive) and drive up every day.
If you’re flying anyway - and I’m assuming you’re not mental enough to drive from your country - it’s under 3 hours drive from Canberra, so closer than any of the Vic resorts from Melbourne.
9 hours from Melbourne and we still do the drive.
