    I have another question (sorry OP)- what's it like driving in there? I get nervous just thinking about it.
    I looked into the ski tube thingy but it really adds to the price of everything.

    We had a 3 week campervanning holiday in NZ for the same price as a week in the Australian snowfields. Did 2 snow days while we were there. You could definitely do nz cheaper!!

    Default Help with snow holiday

    I've been to NZ and Japan skiing ore kids but went to Perisher last year with 5yo and 2yo. Easy 5hour drive from Sydney.

    We stayed in a b&b in crackenback mountain with 4 families. Was fantastic. Log fires at night, kids in bed early then the adults could catch up.

    We'll go again this year.

    Delirium this site is worth a look too.

    I got some kids snow boots last year and they were $11 I think and were great, waterproof and really warm they wore them for 5 days on snow. I also grabbed some really cheap kids bib and brace sets.

    The aldi ski stuff can be good, but you need to get there super early when it goes on sale and be prepared to fight other parents hehehe.

    With the deal I linked you only pay $10 per person for jacket and pants and boots are included in the price too. But DS2 will need some.

    I'm already Aldi obsessed so I don't need a nudge to fight the crowds LOL

    Good deal! Aldi might be good then for stuff like thermals, gloves, socks etc.

    We ski at thredbo every year.

    Stating in Jindabyne is def cheaper, even cabins at the caravan park are nice & heated
    Thredbo you drive to not ski tube.
    We've never had to use chains on the car.
    Aldi do great ski clothes but also try gumtree or put a wanted ad on your local buy n sell.

    Ski holidays are def expensive.
