Things to do at the snow

From June to October, snow season is in full swing in the Snowy Mountains. Snow falls can start as early as April and as late as December, but peak season is late July and August, when there’s no shortage of snow-friendly activities to explore. It’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast and resort schedules before booking.

Head to Thredbo, a year-round mountain resort and home to Australia’s highest lifted point. Hit the slopes on a toboggan or snow tube in the winter snow play area, situated at the base of the mountain. You can also trek through the snow with a guide on a snowshoeing or walking tour and soak up the spectacular scenery. During snow season, there’s also great live entertainment and night skiing on offer.

Sunrise in Blue Cow - Perisher

The snowfields of Mount Selwyn offer plenty of opportunities to play in the snow for non-skiers. Grab your snow tube and charge down the mountain at Snowflake Tube Park, or enjoy the Snow Play & Toboggan Park. This small, family-friendly ski resort is also particularly good for beginner skiers and snowboarders.

Don’t miss Perisher's Tube Town, which features specially groomed lanes for thrill-seekers, as well as a designated tobogganing area. During the peak ski season from July to August, temperatures can get down to -5 degrees celsius, creating ideal conditions for snow. Ride the Perisher Quad Express to a height of approximately 2,000 metres above sea level and admire the breathtaking views to the east across the Snowy Mountains.

Mount Selwyn - Tobogganing - Kosciuszko National Park

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. Build a snowman, have a good old-fashioned snowball fight, or go tobogganing. In the warmer months, there are also fantastic bushwalks, mountain biking trails and fishing spots.
