Selwyn Snow Resort, Cooma

#3 of 10 in Winter Sports in New South Wales
Ski Area · Nature / Park
Learn to ski or snowboard at Selwyn Snow Resort, a small Snowy Mountains ski resort located near Cabramurra, the highest city in Australia. The resort traces its origins to the nearby town of Kiandra, which is considered the birthplace of Australian skiing. The skiing facilities of Kiandra were transferred to this location in 1978, where modern triple chairlifts replaced what had once been Australia’s very first T-bar lifts. The resort also includes over 45 km (28 mi) of cross-country trails, with gentle slopes suited to beginners and families with small children. The steeper gradient of the resort’s Racecourse Run provides more challenging terrain for advanced skiers and snowboarders looking for a bit of adventure.

  • For a family with young children, this place is great. We didn't ski but the toboggan park and the tube slides were great fun. The toilets (which I read in previous reviews were horrible) were not...  more »
  • I went to Selwyn straight after a blizzard. The snow was great in Selwyn which apparently they very rarely see. No complaints here! But my accommodation in Butters Cottage was unreachable and THE...  more »
  • Instructor Chris was very friendly and informative. Staff were also helpful and really accomodating. Would recommend this place for everybody learning to ski and even for people with experience skiing as some slopes are quite steep. Their food is delicious too and inexpensive.
  • A great place to learn to ski. Just spent 3 days with my 11 and 13 year old with no ski experience. Thanks to our (private) lesson with fantastic Nicole, the kids were skiing by 2pm on the first day. We had one of our ski poles stolen (probably picked up by accident), and the ski hire onsite went above and beyond to resolve our problem, even though we did not hire from them. All the staff we friendly and it was obvious that this is a family run snow field. We did have a small issue, however the ski team handled this very well. We did have an issue with another skier and again the staff (ski patrol) were there to sort it out so everyone could get on with a great experience. If you are keen to learn to ski, this is the place to go. Most people have low ski skills so perfect. Wide runs and no queues! And I mean no (or extremely short) queues - even during the school holidays whilst we were there. Don’t travel all the way there for the food, however you park your car so close that you can drop by the car to collect your own food. On the other hand, make sure you also support them. Overall is 1/3 the price of the big resorts. Stop delaying, like I did for years. Go. Your kids will love it.
