This 40 bed ski lodge could be yours

The owners are selling up and moving to the South Coast. Their move could be your gain with Chalet Sonnenhoff now for sale in Perisher.

Imagine a 17 guest room lodge to call your own. The lodge has approval for 40 beds and comes with a licensed restaurant and bar plus a lounge, open fire and pool tale. Add a spa and sauna and I’m seeing some serious throw back apres retro parties.

You can ski from the door and access Perisher’s 1245 hectares of skiable terrain with a prime elevated position with impressive Perisher Valley views. But best of all the sale comes with the coolest 1978 Bomardier Bombi snow plough and Arctic Cat snowmobile.

Of course you’re really buying a leasehold as National Parks and Wildlife own the land. But the chalet has the leasehold until 2028 and then a 30 year option after that.

So run is as a member’s lodge, a hotel or invite 39 of your closest friends to live with you for the season. There’s even a three bedroom unit for management and four rooms for staff.

How much will it cost you to access such snow joy? AU$2.3million. I know, I know, you could buy your own ski hill in Vermont for less than that. Just.
