Australia Airbnb Ski Getaways: Cosy Up This Ski Season

Hit the slopes.
alpine getaways - cuan den

Ski season just got better with these alpine Airbnb getaways in Australia for your next stay.

If there’s one lifetime bucket list item that should be making the cut for every traveller, it’s spending a season on the slopes.

This year has seen the best start to a ski season in over 20 years, and both Aussie and International travellers are pretty eager to book that long-awaited winter getaway after interruptions over the past two years.

Now, when you think of Australia, I doubt snow is the first thing that comes to mind, so it may surprise you to note that the Australian alps get more annual snowfall than their Swiss counterparts. That’s reason enough for us to enjoy the winter season right here in the land most well known for sun, sand and surf. 

Airbnb has rounded up their most loved wishlist accommodation from the Ski In/ Ski Out categories so you can make your next stay as cosy and grand as possible with a cabin on a snow covered mountain top, an outdoor wooden hot tub, a cosy fireplace to keep warm, or enough room for the family and all of the skiing and snowboarding paraphernalia – there’s something for all tastes and styles.

Aussie ski slope top tips from a champ

Need to brush up on your ski slope knowledge before a trip?

Three time Olympian Matt Graham shared his hot tips on travel and the Perisher region:

Favourite run in Perisher?

The Rock Garden at Blue Cow. It’s an off-piste run with a lot of rocks and jumps and drops. It feeds into the mogul course at Perisher and it’s got it all!

Best kept secret in Perisher? 

A run called Double Trouble. It’s an off-piste that goes between Blue Cow and Guthega and it’s a bit hidden, a bit off of the beaten track.

Best coffee in Perisher?

Alpine Eyre would be my favourite spot for a coffee. It is a small kiosk at the bottom of Eyre T-bar at Mt Perisher. It’s a good place to hang out and have a break from skiing.

Favourite places for drinks in Perisher?

At a hotel called The Man from Snowy River, in the front valley area. It’s a bit of a hidden secret.

Favourite place to eat in Perisher?

Also the Man from Snowy River. It has great pub food, great prices, good vibes and occasional live music and it’s perfect on a sunny afternoon.

What do you love about the snowy mountains?

The snow obviously. It’s where I grew up and learned to ski. There is also just so much variety in what it offers; summer trips, mountain biking, hiking. It’s got it all really and the air is just fresher down there!

What do you never leave home without?

It is my phone these days, especially for travel as it has itineraries, diaries, all the apps and all the life essentials. 

What is it like travelling the world for work?

I wouldn’t call it work. I am a part of a really unique and close team and I really enjoy that and being able to compete and train is really special. 

Must have feature in an Airbnb?

An Airbnb that is in a private area, where you can be secluded and not disturbed by anyone. 

Favourite holiday spot?

I recently went to the Blue Mountains and stayed in an Airbnb in Leura and had a great time!
