There’s no better way to party with your friends than on the slopes in one of Australia’s top ski resorts. Getting the perfect balance between great terrains and thriving nightlife can be a bit of a challenge, so it’s important to keep this in mind when you’re making your bookings. Here are a few of the best ski resorts in Australia for the ultimate snow adventure party.
This great ski resort is centred around a traditional alpine style village. With pedestrian only access, most of the accommodation here is ski in, ski out. Not only is this convenient for hitting the slopes during the day, but it makes for a fun way to travel through the village after the sun sets. With 32 dining options on the mountain and in the village, Falls Creek has more on offer than any other Australian ski resort. From a quiet night in at one of the cosy restaurants to a slighter wilder time at one of the clubs or music venues, there’s something in Falls Creek for every taste. When you need some time to recover, there’s always the option of a sauna and a few drinks in front of the open fire at one of the ski lodges.
With the highest lifted point in Australia, the nation’s longest ski runs and amazing beginner’s slopes, Thredbo is one of the most popular ski resorts in the magnificent Snowy Mountains. Boasting 6 bars and 20 restaurants, as well as a club for the really keen partiers, there’s plenty of opportunity to have some fun after dark. Thredbo has a reputation for a seriously thriving nightlife, with many revellers partying on until well after the sun comes up. It’s not just snow season that sees Thredbo full of travellers, the party goes on all year round with a fantastic range of activities to do once the snow has melted and the ski season is over.
Perisher is the largest ski resort in Australasia, and it has a fantastic party scene to match. With 1245 hectares of varied terrain, skiers of every ability will be able to find their perfect slope before heading back and enjoying some post-ski entertainment. With an amalgamation of four different villages, Perisher offers a great range of bars and restaurants. There’s everything from spirited pub races and karaoke competitions, to a few quieter spots where you can enjoy a drink and chat with friends. No matter what your party style is, you’ll find something that is perfect for you at Perisher.

These are some of the best in the business though, and you’ll have an amazing time both on and off the slopes. With world-class facilities, terrain for all abilities and a vibrant social scene once the sun goes down, make your next party a guaranteed success with a trip to one of these great ski resorts.
