Important Information for Visitors
All rooms come with en-suites; TV; clock radio/alarm; bar fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. All linen is provided along with soap and tea/coffee starter packs. You should bring your own shampoo and other personal items. There is a supermarket in Thredbo along with Chemist, Doctor, Newsagent and Clothing stores, which provide most things you might need to buy during your holiday.
We have a central video system and can play children videos and videos for teenagers at set times in the evening.
Internet access is available by using your laptop to dial a local or 1800 number (via your mobile phone) which your ISP can supply you with before you leave home. Alpenhorn is also 802.11 enabled for those with wireless computing devices, so does not provide dial up access.
Ski gear is obvious for winter but please don’t forget goggles; beanies; neck warmers and of course, wrist guards for snow boarders. A spare pair of waterproof shoes is recommended for all children.
Warm clothing is essential all through the year as even summer nights can be chilly. Other summer essentials are hats, insect repellent and walking boots. If you plan any activities we recommend you bring your swimmers, tennis gear and so on. There is heaps to do in summer so come and surprise yourself !
The bottle shop selections can be limited in summer so you may wish to bring some of your own.
From Sydney drive to Canberra then Cooma and on to Jindabyne and Thredbo.
The drive is about 5 hours (plus stops) from the centre of Sydney.
The police are very active with radar – especially from Goulburn to Jindabyne so watch your speed.
As vehicles are not permitted in the Village Mall, you reach Alpenhorn by driving along the main road, which loops inside the village. You will pass the car parks on your left; chairlifts on your right; go under the overhead footbridge; then pass the Church and Knickerbocker restaurant on your right. The road then loops back on itself and traverses the village.
Take the first road on your right after Knickerbocker – Alpenhorn is at the end of this road, called Buckwong Place.
Our reception is on the ground floor, adjacent to the car loading/unloading area. There is ample room for you to check in and unload your car before taking it to the designated overnight parking areas for the duration of your stay, where it will be safe during snowfalls. The free winter village shuttle buses will bring you back to Buckwong Place.
If you are arriving after 5 pm just call ahead and let us know. If we are not going to be there then we will leave your key for you at reception.
Once you are settled you can open a glass of wine or relax with a cup of tea and start enjoying your holiday !
