If you are visiting Sydney or are a Sydney resident and are looking for a Ski Tour then the Snowy Mountains are the perfect destination for your winter break.
Located just 500km from Sydney, the Snowy Mountains provide the perfect backdrop to any winter activities you wish to participate in. Various snowy activities such as skiing, snow-tubing, snow-shoeing, cross country skiing, and tobogganing, are all available in the Snowy Mountains as well as the more gentle alpine pursuits.
The Snowy Mountains snow season does vary somewhat depending on the climate, but normally starts in early June to the end of September or the beginning of October. Before you travel it is worth checking on the weather at the resort you are heading to.
The Snowy Mountains includes four winter resorts that can offer the perfect choice for the first time skier or a more competent winter sports participant.
The largest resort is Perisher with the most lifts, whilst the most picturesque resort is Thredbo which also has the longest run. More inaccessible is Charlotte Pass which has the fame of being Australia’s highest resort. Lastly is Selwyn Snow Resort, which is ideal for families and a great place for beginners.
If you are just beginning as a skier and have never been skiing or snowboarding before it is recommended before you start hurtling down the slopes that you take lessons.
Your overall alpine experience will be even more enjoyable on the slopes if you learn the basics from an experienced instructor. Even if you are not a first timer it is advisable that you too should brush up on your technique before taking to the slopes, especially if you have not been skiing for some time.
Many a ski tour has been ruined by personal injury gained from inexperience on the slopes.
There are various kinds of accommodation available for the visitor all over the resorts and the nearby towns. From “backpacker” hostel type of accommodation right up to luxurious self contained apartments.
Obviously the choice rather depends which resort you have chosen and your budget. But do not worry, there is a broad choice especially if you are prepared to stay in the little mountain villages dotted around.
