|For first-timers or experienced snow-goers alike, the very-first thing anyone must do when they arrive on the mountain is to grab a handful of cold, icy snow, shape it into a smooth ball and throw it square between the shoulder blades of your nearest companion. This small, hilarious action is going to set the tone for your whole snow trip, because, from skiing to boarding and après ski, visiting the Australian snow is all about having an incredible amount of fun.|
While there’s only so many laughs that can be provided by a snowball, getting into some downhill action on the snow is too much fun to pass up. Skiing and snowboarding are the most popular activities on the mountains, but for those less inclined to take a tumble, there’s still plenty of fun to be had with snow play and cross-country skiing. Once the sun sets, stay strapped into your boots, because night skiing under brilliantly luminous lights is about to begin. It’s not to be missed for those who find there just aren’t enough daylight hours.
If you’d prefer to swap mountainside for fireside at the day’s close, you’ll find a thriving après ski scene across the resorts to keep you entertained into the small hours, from amazing restaurants, to cosy bars, and raucous pubs. So take a look around, the Australian snowfields are waiting for you to shape your first, perfect snowball.
