27 March 2012 As the cold weather creeps in, it is time to start thinking about the 2012 snow season in the Snowy Mountains. The Lantern Thredbo apartments have it covered with an all new, easy to use booking system and great early bird advance booking discounts that will slice up to 33% off nightly rates. ?With snowfall predicted in alpine areas as early as the coming weeks, now is the time to start planning your trip to the NSW Snowy Mountains?, said Ian Foster, General Manager of The Lantern Property Group which operates Lantern Apartments, Lhotsky Apartments and Snow Stream Apartments amongst others. ?And early birds will definitely reap the rewards of getting in quick. If you get in early, you can save up to 33% on the Lantern Apartments standard nightly rate,? Ian continued. Early Bird Advance Bookings are available now for bookings in most apartment types for most weeks of the season. Five nights accommodation for a family of four is available from just $1095. Savings can also be made on one bedroom apartment reservations with seven nights reduced to just $1470. ?Our new booking system has made it even easier for you to make reservations for your Thredbo accommodation for the 2012 snow season,? Ian said. The new booking system at www.lanternapartments.com.au includes some great new features such as payment plans for guests, a helpful booking manager and secure on-line payments.
