You Won’t Want To Go Home

The first lift at Smiggins was a rope tow, built in 1954, by a war veteran and local ski instructor Johnny Abbotsmith. The lift went past the old Smiggins Café on the left hand side (if looking south) across the Kosciuszko Road and down to Pipers Creek. Donald Johnston, an undergraduate Architectural employee of Brewster, Murray and Partners Architects, between 1958  and 1963  was involved in the design, documentation and some Contract Administration of many of the Lodges in the Perisher area including Lodge 21. From its humble beginnings Lodge 21 has attracted horsemen, engineers from around the snowies , champion and world champion skiers and snowboarders, and still attracts descendants of The Man From Snowy River.

Whichever Way You Turn… There’s Fun On Every Side

Welcome to Lodge 21 Smiggin Holes (often called Smiggins Holes) and part of the giant Perisher Ski, Snowboard and Snow Tubing resort. Our team are experts in creating fun filled on snow holiday memories. Why stay at Perisher, Charlotte Pass, Thredbo, Crackenback, Selwyn or Jindabyne, when you can stay at Lodge 21 Smiggins, on snow, with on site parking? …possibly the best ski lodge in the world. 🙂

The location is sensational, directly across the road from the Smiggins Hotel, that’s close enough to join the party, and far enough away to escape to freedom. Other famous hotels and entertainment venues in the resort include the Man From Snowy River Hotel, The Perisher Manor, Guthega Hotel, Perisher Valley Hotel and The Sundeck. You’ll be close enough to the ski lifts and chairlift to throw snowballs at the kids, and a million miles from care.

We can’t wait to meet you.

What others say about us

The Man

Every year I go back. I love this place. So yep, over time I have definitely become friends with the manager and staff.

And yes it’s old, it’s an old historical Snowy Hydro building, with plenty of character. So If you’re after newer more modern room… quad-rippleish your budget and look at the Perisher Valley Hotel.

Lodge 21 is located in the most brilliant position, opposite the ski lifts and the hotel. I love being able to see the snowplough’s and the groomers and the snow guns and all the other cool snow machines that go by. The staff were great and the place was warm and friendly.

Room Tip: Let them know when you book if you’re a young family, or a group, so as they can allocate the best position for you.

I just love Lodge 21. I’m not so into the skiing, I love lounging around the lodge. I love those lounges by the fire… mmm.
