Things to do at the snow


A trip to the Snowy Mountains offers more than just skiing and snowboarding. Whether you’re in the mood for relaxing, shopping or soaking up the beautiful surrounds, the Snowy Mountains won’t disappoint.


Must Do

Snow activities

You don't have to ski or snowboard to have fun at the snow there are so many other activities to try! Whoosh down the slopes on a toboggan or snow tube in Thredbo's winter snow play area, situated at the base of the mountain. Trek through the snow with a guide on a snowshoeing tour and soak in the spectacular scenery. 

Mount Selwyn offers non-skiers plenty of snow play opportunities. Grab your snow tube and charge down the mountain at Snowflake Tube Park, or enjoy the Snow Play & Toboggan Park.

Have fun snowtubing in Perisher's Tube Town with specially groomed lanes for thrill-seekers, or head to their designated tobogganing area. Ride the Perisher Quad Express to a height of approximately 2000m above sea level and admire the breathtaking views to the east across the Snowy Mountains.

If youre holidaying with children, delight them with a bit of snow play. Build a snowman, make some snow angels and have a good old-fashioned snowball fight!

Feeling ambitious? You can even climb Mount Kosciuszko.

  • Night skiing

    The ski slopes at night can be just as breathtaking as during the day. Most Snowy Mountains resorts offer night skiing activities for skiers of all ages, or those keen to soak up the night-time atmosphere. Night skiing usually runs from 6pm - 9 pm. 

  • Terrain parks

    Explore the great terrain parks on offer at the Snowy Mountains. Develop your skiing skills and tricks at the terrain parks available at Charlotte Pass, Perisher, Selwyn Snowfields, and Thredbo. Mini terrain parks are also on offer for beginner skiers.
