Selecting a Snowy Mountains resort
Whether you're a beginner, an intermediate, or an expert skier or snowboarder, you'll find slopes to suit your experience level.
Perisher and its surrounding villages make up the southern hemisphere's biggest alpine resort. With 47 chairlifts servicing a 12 square kilometre area, Perisher's varied terrain suits all ages and ability levels. The resort features five terrain parks, two half-pipes, and more than 100km of marked cross-country trails. There is a wide variety of accommodation, dining and apres-ski options.
Thredbo offers plenty of attractions for all ages, from dedicated beginner slopes, to long expert runs and back-country adventures. The new-look terrain park gives thrill-seekers an adrenaline rush, while children will love the Snow Play area with tobogganing and snow tubing runs. Thredbo Leisure Centre also has a 50m indoor pool, gym, and childcare centre.
Charlotte Pass is good for beginners and families. With a limited number of guests in the village at any time, skiers are guaranteed short lift lines. Taking a day off from the slopes? Try a snowshoe tour or groomer ride and get involved in the lively apres-ski scene. Choose from a wide range of on-snow accommodation catering to a wide range of budgets.
Selwyn Snowfields is perfect for beginners. To the north of Kosciuszko National Park, the family-friendly slopes progress across the mountain from beginner to advanced trails. Relax in a cosy cafe and enjoy a treat in the donut bar, while the kids have fun in the Snow Sports School Centre. You can also try snow tubing and tobogganing.
