Mount Selwyn Snowfields Skiing

Date: 11 August 2001

Our first flashback story is our first time skiing experience in Australia. Wait, there is snow in Australia?

Many people didn’t know that there is actually snow in certain parts of Australia during winter. Snowing in Tasmania is very common while there are snowy mountains in parts of New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria.

This first time skiing experience brings back to August 2011 when we went to university in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. One of our first outings with our new friends is to Mount Selwyn Snowfields.

In winter (May to August), there are snow in mountains of NSW and Mount Selwyn is one of them. It is located in the northern section of Kosciuszko National Park bordering state Victoria. It is a just a few hour drive from Wagga Wagga.

The weather was cold but not that extreme. Most of us first time visiting the snowfield were over excited and started throwing snow like kids.

Rachel and I tried skiing. First time skiing was tough and I was wearing the wrong attire. I was wearing jeans and it was really cold. I should have rented proper pants. I really struggled with the ski while Rachel enjoyed it as she had roller skating back ground.

We spent a few hours at the Selwyn Snowfields and it was great experience. There wasn’t any snow falls that day but everyone was clearly exhausted.

I hope to visit the place again one day.
