Welcome to the Sponars Chalet website. Situated at 1500 metres altitude in the Kosciusko National Park, 7 kilometres from Perisher Blue, Sponars is an owner operated Chalet. It is an historic, well known landmark, a traditional ski lodge offering a unique snow holiday. Sponars sits on the site of the original Kosciusko Hotel whose Grand Slam Ski run was the first commercial ski slope in the Snowy Mountains area.
Sponars offers the best value hotel accommodation in the snow. We accommodate 100 guests in comfort with the rooms having en-suite facilities. Unlike most lodges in the snow Sponars has a FREE CARPARK for guests right at the front door. Each morning either drive to the resort or catch our courtesy bus to Perisher Blue
We have lots of activity in the lodge in the evenings. There are regular musicians who entertain around the bar.
Other than live music there are karaoke nights and impromptu sessions around the pianola. On quieter nights there may be one of Sponars famous darts comps, or pool comp or a Poker tournament, trivial pursuit, crazy hat night or a tipping competition for the score in a Bledisloe cup game.
If joining in is not your thing, there is plenty of space around the open fire to sit peacefully. Or maybe have a quiet ale at the bar.
Dont underestimate the benefit of having the children well entertained and fed from 6 - 9pm Sunday through Thursday evenings in a designated Kids Club room. All included in the very reasonable children s tariffs.
Talking of tired muscles - there is simply no better antidote than a swim in the heated pool (29 degrees - bliss) and 10 minutes in the steam room.
Sponars Chalet is a really convenient lodge to stay at. There is ample parking, unlike Smiggins where there is limited parking and Perisher where there is NO free parking.
Not only is there plenty of space for cars, Sponars also operates a courtesy bus for those who don t want to drive the 7klms to Perisher Blue. There is a daily schedule which can change slightly depending on demand and weather, eg if the weather is good we will return at 4pm: 5pm: 5.30pm. If it is inclement return times will be 4 pm: 4.30pm: 5.30pm.
Morning schedule is 8am: 8.30am: 9.15am. There is also a 1pm on request. Outside those times driving is easy, 7klms and the road is cleared regularly.
On-site car parking.
