Winter in Australia is full of fun in the alps of NSW, Vic and also Tasmania. There are also indoor venues dotted around the country that you can practice snowboarding and skiing and you don't need snow. Here we try and help with some shops that have genuine snow sales. We also include some notes on our experiences. Have a great snow season!

In terms of Snow Sales, Pullins have a big sale on the Queens Birthday weekend. They tend to bring in a lot of stock of new snow gear and then they also have the run out of some of the previous years hire gear!
