Description

Located out the back of the beautiful Perisher Blue Ski Resort, Guthega is a bit of the old 'out of sight out of mind'. Just like the rest of the Snowy Mountains, Guthega is full of granite just waiting to be bouldered and climbed on.

The lodges at Guthega are for members only but there is one place you can rent a room at and that's Guthega Hotel.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Drive out of Jindabyne and head south towards Perisher. Don't forget that when entering Kosciusko National Park you'll have to pay an entry fee but if you're coming down for the snow you'd already know that. Drive up the mountain and pass The Ski Rider Lodge. Continue for approx 10 minutes past the Ski Rider and you'll see the right hand turn for Guthega. Ensure that if you DON'T own a 4x4 that you have snow chains ready to put on as this road can become quite risky when the snows pounding away. The road will turn to dirt (mud) then to tar again once you start to approach the Guthega Ski Terminal.

History

View historical timeline

Initially a large camp of tents for the hard workers establishing the Snowy Mountain River Hydro Scheme, Guthega eventually became an amazing location for the avid snow lover. Lodges were built for the workers and then over the years they were upgraded until they became what we see today.

An amazing location isolated from the mainstream throngs filling the snow fields.
