About Charlotte Pass

At 1765 metres above sea level, Charlotte Pass is Australia’s oldest and highest resort. Named after Charlotte Adams who, in 1881, was the first woman to climb Mt Kosciuszko, this area is brilliant with snow throughout winter, becoming a skier and snowboarder’s dream.

Enjoy the ski-in and ski-out accommodation and facilities of this relaxed village, with a freestyle terrain park, night skiing options and dedicated race course. There are ski runs for all ages, with gentle slopes for beginners, plenty of intermediate terrain, challenging advanced runs and cross-country trails.

Find your feet on the Easy Starter, carve up the intermediate Kosi Coaster, or take the adrenalin rush on the Sidewinder or at Guthrie’s Chutes. Enjoy the old world charm of the village following a day on the slopes. Stay at the historic Kosciuszko Chalet, built in 1930, or relax with a drink at the bar or dinner at the restaurant or bistro. The Chalet is the perfect place for a romantic getway. 

There are plenty of ski and snowboard friendly accommodation options in the village. Oversnow transport from Perisher is available with child-minding services for children over the age of three. The closest village to Mt Kosciuszko, Charlotte Pass is in the middle of Kosciuszko National Park and some of the area's most idyllic alpine scenery.
