Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took a family holiday to Perisher this winter, it was our first time at the snow we all got Ski lessons at Smiggins 2 adults and 2 children. All lessons were fantastic special mention to Christopher Hayes, Henna and Max for making us feel comfortable!

I recommend Smiggins for beginners as the environment is much more relaxed then parishes and we were able to sit up on the deck and enjoy a coffee while watching our kids play in the snow.

Well tried to have fun.Apparently standing in line and dancing is in breach of covid laws. If I could do it again I would pick another location. I know the times and laws are difficult at the moment but if you are going to supply someone alcohol and expect them not to get a little bit left of center well don’t open. Keep your establishment closed until ever place in the world is covid free and open then. Very disappointing

I had expected to see a line up on mountain bikers, but instead found it quiet at Smiggins Holes in Summer

This is a great area for beginner skiers. All of the slopes are either green or blue runs. The staff are also very understanding of beginner skiers and will graciously help people on the ski lifts. I thoroughly enjoyed my time skiing here. It is a great beginners spot and there is not a lot of people around.

The lovely Lisa looked after our ever need. Friendly staff & fabulous food.
Modern bathrooms, small but warm & clean bedrooms.
Good location, a short walk or lodge shuttle car to the lifts.
No WiFi or tv in rooms but communal area has this covered.
All up an excellent few days.

We had a week with our 3 year old grandson
We could only book him in at Smiggin as to young for Perisher.
So we were forced to hang around Smiggin
The runs are poorly groomed there is very little snow making. Unless Vale do something about Smiggin it is best to avoid Smiggin Holes.
Perisher on the other hand is much better.
Smiggin is treated as not important as the majority of people go to the next part which is Perisher
Smiggin holes could be nice for families if the grooming and snow making was up to a good standard which it isn’t

One of the attractions, yet criticism is the casual approach here.
Ski school is quite disorganized.
Groups are asked to be there from 8.45 for a 9am start, but they don’t even leave till at least 9.15.
Classes advertised as finishing at 12, but they are back by 11.45 & tell you to pick up by 11.50.
Only a few words of feedback (if you ask), no cards/reports etc showing what skills were achieved etc
When doing multiple consecutive days of ski lessons, you should expect some level of intelligence about which group your kids should go in, but it’s a total pot luck each day. So it’s common for groups with unbalanced abilities & ages, therefore the first 45mins of the lesson reshuffling between instructors.
But it’s a friendly little resort & not pretentious like some of the others nearby.
Some needed additions;
- lockers in the Smiggins Centre building
- ski racks (lockable ones too) to avoid the novice skier mess of leaving skis & poles laying on the ground every which way.
- clocks at the lifts (& clearly signed opening & closing times)
- more maps at the tops of the runs.
