We've been going to the Australian snow fields for over 20 years. In Australia the Snow fields are restricted to the East Coast of the mainland Australia and also a couple of resorts down in Tasmania. Australia's highest mountain is just over 2200 metres and some Snow resorts are a lot lower than that. Hence, the Snow in Australia is very seasonal and is pretty much restricted to the Winter months and some Spring snow fun. So for those that get a kick along in feeling alive in the Snow, the calendar months of June, July, August, September and maybe October are the Snow Season in Australia!
No matter if you are a Snow day tripper, skier, snowboarder or back country cross country skier, one thing we've always found is, people enjoy getting help with is some of the costs. Compared to some other snow resorts and fields around the world, Australia's snow trips can be expensive. Over the years, and with an expanding family of kids, we've found that some snow gear, lift tickets, accommodation and restaurants can be pricey. Kids grow out of clothes quickly and equipment becomes too small.
