Our third year here. Great value, excellent instructors and staff. A small resort, great if some aren't skiing as you can see most areas with kids. Costs me nothing to watch. Great easy and beginner rubs with enough intermediate to satisfy the adults. Don't expect...More

A bit disappointed that you get charged for watching your kids. I can understand if you are participating, but spectators should be free.

10km return walk from Selwyn car park, you can visit the old heritage hut: Four Mile Hut, built 1937. You can marvel at the resourcefulness of the early explorers.

For a first time visit to the snow for young children, it was great. But we brought tickets for the tobaggining and felt it was a bit too dangerous, so only had one ride. There was no safety cushioning and we couldnt see any employees...More

There's not much around. There's a pub in Adaminaby (30 min drive from snowfields) and a lovely bakery with pies etc. At the snowfields themselves there is a cafe with hamburgers, sandwiches etc

Adaminaby has lots of accomodation. Old Adaminaby and Anglers Reach are also in the same area. The drive to the skifields is about half an hour but it is an easy drive and very scenic.
