Skiing and snowboarding


Snowboarding and skiing are just as much as part of the action as snowballs and icicles when it comes to snow in New South Wales. Try night skiing and explore the various terrain parks in the Snowy Mountains.

Must Do

Skiing and snowboarding in NSW

Whether it's downhill, at night or cross-country skiing and snowboarding that's on your agenda, the New South Wales Snowy Mountains rack up a feast of winter action for every snow enthusiast.

Standing 1,680 metres high, Smiggin Holes is regarded as one of the top beginner's resorts on the Australian ski fields. The family-friendly retreat is located within a protected snow bowl and features an encouraging ski school that will have you snowboarding like a professional.

Expert shred heads can work their magic on Thredbo long black runs or on Perisher's Superpipe; a 95 metre long, 16 metre wide, one of its kind half pipe with walls greater than five metre high.

Kosciusko National Park has world-class terrain with the option of snow camping in an untracked wilderness. If you don't want to stay at the main ski field resorts, opt for Jindabyne, located 60 kilometres from Cooma.
