Eeski lies on the Burrungubudgee (hunting and gathering grounds) of the Ngarigo people, the Traditional Owners of the Monaro and we pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging. Nestled within Crackenback Valley along the Alpine Way, our lodge lies halfway between Thredbo Village and Jindabyne. As the first ski lodge built on Wollondibby Rd, Eeski has long been an escape for many Estonians and their friends into the rural and rugged Snowy Mountains.

While Estonians have been frequenting these mountains for several decades, for generations First Nations people from Southeast NSW and northern Victoria came to the highest parts of Tidbillaga (the Snowy Mountains) for special ceremonies amongst the Irranba (Spiritual Herb Country) in the tall alpine herbfields. These higher areas are spiritual places – like a church. People from all directions visited these mountains to participate in ceremonies and learn their ancestor’s stories. However for spiritual reasons they rarely went to the highest tops, closest to the stars, where the spirits dance.

As guests we ask you respect and care for this fragile landscape to keep it pristine for generations to come.


Eeski is situated within the subalpine zone at 1,120m above sea level with surrounding montane sclerophyll forests and sub-alpine woodlands. Our property provides sanctuary for many native species including Eastern Grey kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, possums, skinks, emus, Bennett’s wallabies and plenty of birdlife. You may also be greeted by our microbats from time to time.

Neighbouring local attractions such as Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery, Crackenback Farm and Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, as well as the spectacular Kosciuszko National Park offer activities and attractions year-round. The Skitube operates from nearby Bullocks Flat Terminal allowing quick, convenient access to Perisher Valley and Blue Cow throughout the ski season.


With an altitude above 1100m, the subalpine ecosystem around Eeski Lodge has a unique climate and geography, dominated by powerful snow gums, inland scribbly gums, alpine ash and black sallee to name a few. The Australian Alps, despite its inhospitability, remains a temperamental and fragile landscape.
