Located on-snow, Turnak provides immediate access to chairlifts and t-bars that connect to ski and snowboard runs in Perisher Valley, Mount Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes. You and your guests have exclusive access to morning ‘freshies’ as well as the choice to be able to ski home for lunch, then click back into your skis to continue your afternoon of fun.
The newly opened Freedom Quad Chairlift has made access to the popular downhill slopes of Perisher Valley faster and easier.
Guthega is also a popular starting point for alpine and cross-country skiers. Turnak Lodge looks down onto Guthega Dam, from where it is possible to ski to the magnificent Tate East Ridge and even to the Tate summit.
Guthega also offers excellent ski trekking to Mount Twynam, Mount Guthega and Mount Paralyser – some of the steepest and most exciting ski runs in Australia.
More intrepid cross-country skiers can make a day trip to the runs at Carruthers Peak and the sensational Mount Sentinel, while snow trekkers can find their way to Watson’s Crags.
