Dulmison Ski Club

History

Dulmison Ski Club was founded in 1961 when the Kosciusko State Park Trust decided it was time to stimulate the growth of the well equipped ski village in Perisher Valley. The company Dulmison (Aust) Pty Ltd solved the poor power supply by installing and underground cable from Guthega.

A group of ski-enthusiast employees saw the opportunity to establish a Ski Club. Many of these founding members (and their families) remain active in the Club today.

The Perisher lodge was completed in 1962, and has been extended and refurbished over the years.

In 1977 the Club built an additional lodge in Jindabyne.

In 1992 the Club entered negotiations with a developer for the construction of a new lodge in Thredbo. This transaction included the sale of the Jindabyne lodge to the developer.

Today, the Club’s 300+ members enjoy high quality, well-managed, family-oriented and well-located lodges at the centre of Australia’s premier ski fields.

As a Club, it is run and maintained through and by its members. While non-profit, it enjoys a strong financial position through good governance with prudent and skilful management by its Board and its Lodge Committee.

The lodge committee oversees management and maintenance of the two lodges including periodic working bees.
