G'day all,
Just got back from the NSW snowfields after a great skiing trip. Only went to Mt Selwyn this year for a family trip, but had great fun. Stayed in Adaminaby which is in between Cooma and Mt Selwyn at Country Club, hospitality great. Have to mention though, if any one is travelling through Adaminaby, either winter or summer, go to the Adaminaby Bowling Club for your meals. The bistro there "Kaytees Kitchen" was absolutely fantastic food, really big plate full, very delicious and at a really reasonable price for the family. What a beautiful area the Snowy Mountains and its tourist offerings give.

Cheers
Steve.

It only cost just over $5000 for two weeks at Mt Buller with all accommodation meals and ski lifts. That is an affordable holiday and skiing is not expensive. We normally go skiing twice in the season and do 2 x 2 weeks. This year we did Falls Creek and Mt. Buller

To each their own, but to me, $5000 for 2 weeks is hardly "affordable"

Just out of interest though . . . for how many people ???

That is for myself and husband and daughter
That is cheap compared to going overseas for 4 weeks each year in April
I would think most families would spend $5000 or more for 2 weeks holiday at the snow
I do not think of it as expensive and we could spend more on accommodation as others do. You do not spend much time in the room so why spend more money on a bigger room you do not use
I should think most families in Australia could easily afford $5000 for a holiday once or twice a year

There's 6 in our family, so I recon the price would be a tad different.

I would also question that "most" families could "easily" afford a $5000 holiday each year . . .

However, at the end of the day, your money you can choose to do what you like. We aren't snow people so I guess it seems a tad expensive for me . . . hey, could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time.

Hey Flappan
I'm with you. $5k for 2 weeks is bloody expensive. We manage a 4 week annual holiday for a family of 4 for much less than that. Mind you it's not a skiing holiday. But as you say - each to his/her own!
