For a country more widely known for its barren, parched deserts, miles of sandy beaches and bronzed bodies, the concept to ski Australia may seem a little alien. However, for those wanting to ski Australia and try something a bit different Down Under, there are a few great resorts and slopes for snowboarding and skiing.

From around June to October each year, our own backyard has some pretty sweet places to call your next ski holiday. And considering you don’t have to pay for any international flights, you’ll save a bundle on airfares. The only drawback with skiing in Australia is relatively expensive lift passes. To help spread your pennies as far as possible on holiday, we’ve put together some of the sweetest ski packages for the best ski resorts in the country — you’ll know your corduroy from your pow pow and freshies in no time.

Ski Destinations

Skiing in Australia offers a unique and different view of an amazing country without a koala or wallaby in sight. When choosing your ski holiday destination in Australia, we’ve got a cool tip — steer clear of the sunny, northern states and head south to the mountains in New South Wales and Victoria for your snow-capped adventure. In New South Wales, resorts like Thredbo and Perisher have great equipment, slopes for all levels and a kicking nightlife. Over in Victoria, Hotham has some incredible black runs for the experienced skier and nearby Falls Creek has reliable snow and runs for all levels.

Ski Resorts

Australia has a handful of awesome ski resorts that offer many levels of skiing and snowboarding. Thredbo is Australia’s most famous resort with our greatest vertical at1300 metres. Nearby Perisher boasts the most number of lifts in Australia and offers night runs (and nightlife). Selwyn Snowfields features gentle terrain and a great bargain, while Charlotte Pass Ski Resort is Australia’s highest ski resort with breathtaking views of the Snowy Mountains. In Victoria, head to Falls Creek for the most reliable snow, Mount Hotham for the more experienced runs and Mount Buller for a getaway closer to Melbourne complete with luxury extras.
