Selwyn Snowfields, Cooma

3.2
#3 of 7 in Winter Sports in New South Wales
Learn to ski or snowboard at Selwyn Snowfields, 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.
