Why Use The Skitube

Skitube is a convenient and innovative train ride from Bullocks Flat through the Ramshead range onto Perisher Valley in 10 minutes, then another 7 minutes to Blue Cow. The distance is 8.5km, 6.3km is underground making it one of the longest underground train tunnels in Australia and travelling as deep as 550m below the surface so it's a great experience in itself. There's also FREE day and overnight parking at Bullocks Flat. Travel between Perisher and Blue Cow is FREE with any valid Lift Ticket.

Day Tripping

Because the Bullocks Flat Terminal is well below the normal snow line and only 20km from Jindabyne, it's an easy drive. Frequent train services run to Perisher Valley and on to Blue Cow. A Skitube pass includes the Kosciuszko National Park entry fee and savings can be made by buying a combined Train and Lift Ticket or combined Train and Snow Experience ticket.

On Snow Stays

There is limited overnight parking at Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes so on snow stayers can leave the car in the overnight security patrolled carpark at the Bullocks Flat Skitube Terminal free of charge and travel to Perisher via Skitube.

Skitube Terminal Facilities

Bullocks Flat Skitube terminal is a complete source of information and services. You'll find a Lift Ticket Office, Snowsports School Office, Information Desk, Kiosk, Souvenir Shop as well as Snowsports Hire and Ski & Board Service Centre all with friendly staff on hand to answer your questions.

One of the largest ski and board rentals around will quickly equip you, your family or group, while the Ski & Board Service Centre next door provides overnight workshop facilities - just drop off your gear on the way down and pick it up next morning ready to go.

Note: For passenger safety the terminal doors at Bullocks Flat will close one minute prior to advertised train departure time.
