We are Penny and Peter Abbott. We have recently sold our business of 29 years. Our Business was Sponars Chalet, a 116-bed ski lodge located 24 Klms from Jindabyne and 8 klms from Perisher Valley in the NSW Snowy Mountains. (www.sponars.com.au)

We employed 14 people ranging from Chefs to bus drivers to house keepers, dining staff, Ski Hire and Bar. At all times we were very hands on, able to roll up the sleeves and assist with most tasks in the lodge. We operated a swimming pool and a full on premise sewerage treatment plant, bus, kitchen, bar, laundry, ski hire shop, restaurant and front office.

Our best references are with reviews on Booking.com, Trip Advisor, Sponars Facebook and Google My Business

Being active people we would like to continue part time employment in a relief management position. We would be more than capable to tend Motels, Caravan Parks and small Hotels, be available to travel to most parts and would prefer up to a maximum 3 weeks tenure at any one time.
