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

Helpful staff + family friendly + good snow + nice weather = all good. Hiring everything with lift pass and lesson around $100 each per day.

Relatively quiet snow fields, with reasonably easy access. A good hour or so from the major towns where you would generally stay, but the roads are easy to drive and the views are spectacular on the way. I would recommend this place as somewhere for...More

Great fun and great value for money. However the menu could be more flexible to people with special dietary requirements. The "vego" options were very limited, as all the soups appeared to contain cream all the vegetarian sandwiches and wraps seemed to contain mayonnaise, there...More

Where to eat when staying near selwyn snow fields

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
Where would be the closest accomodation to the snow feilds for a small family? And how far away are they

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.
