Located in the picturesque Snowy Mountains, about a 2.5-hour drive from Canberra, Selwyn Resort’s gentle terrain and caring mountain staff are the main reasons why it’s a great place to learn to ski or snowboard on your snow holiday. If you’re strapping on your skis or snowboard for the first time, Selwyn Ski Resort is a great place to find your feet.
It’s not all skiing and snowboarding either — you can go tobogganing, snow shoeing or max out in the snowtube park. Selwyn Resort is also well known for being great value – arguably the best in the country. Facility wise, you’ll only find a few dining options and a few shops at Selwyn - it may be basic but you’ll still be able to find everything you need. Student Flights can help get you to Selwyn as well as set you up with one of our oh-so-cool ski holiday packages.
Selwyn’s ski season runs from June to October and the resort has some 30 snowguns that cover most of the park when the natural powder is light. While Selwyn is great for beginners; it’s still plenty of fun for more advanced riders too, with its 2 terrain parks with 15 runs and an 800 metre-long arm run. They’ve also got learn-to-ski/board classes. See the conditions for yourself on the Selwyn snow cam.
Such value for money applies to Selwyn accommodation as well. While you can’t stay on the mountain at Selwyn Resort, there are plenty of options close by in Adaminaby including motels, lodges, self-contained apartments, cottages and cabins.
