If this is your first time to the snow you will need to consider the following.
Troldhaugen Lodge is situated in Jindabyne about 40 minutes from the snow. There are a few ways to access the snow fields.
By car - If you decide to travel from Jindabyne to the Snowy Mountains you must carry chains if you have a 2 wheel drive vehicle. If your vehicle is four wheel drive or AWD, you are not required to carry chains. All fees and information can be found at
Car rental - if you are hiring a car check with your hire car company that the vehicle can be driven in the Snowy Mountains. You may need to pay extra insurance. If so Alpen Auto Rentals in Berridale (15 minute drive from Jindabyne) provides a wide range of rental vehicles that are fully covered to drive in the Snowy Mountains.
