Let’s face it: while New South Wales has some spectacular ski resorts and snow fields, taking a trip to the snow isn’t the cheapest of holidays. Mostly, that’s because we have a much shorter snow season than our European cousins. However, that doesn’t mean you need to be rolling in dough to hit the slopes; many alpine destinations offer sweet deals during the winter months.
First, one thing to note: if there’s one thing you shouldn’t skimp on, it’s proper equipment. You can hire all your gear at any of these spots (think skis, snow jackets, helmets – anything) but it’s also a good idea to bring proper thermals, waterproof gear, thick socks and sunscreen.
