It’s that time of year again, Ticket Mania, as the good folk at Selwyn Snow Resort throw their now annual 48 hour sale.

Could these be the cheapest lift passes in the country? $49 for a mountain lift pass, but only for 48 hours so get in when they launch from midnight on May 23.

Australia’s favourite entry level ski resort has taught many a skier and snowboard in New South Wales, giving them a lifelong addiction to the best outdoor sport around. With 110 acres of skiable terrain and a new base lodge and chairs since during down in the 2020 bushfires, Selwyn is hoping for a full snow season after closing early last year.

It’s been a terrible run of serious bad luck for the family snow resort near Adaminaby, owned by the Blyton Group who also count the character filled pedestrian only Charlotte Pass ski resort in their stable. Charlotte Pass experienced a damaging fire to their sewage plant at the end of last week, the damage is currently being assessed with news expected this week as to whether the resort can open this season.

Australians have long fallen in love with both Selwyn and Charlotte who both know how to cater for families. Charlotte Pass boasts 50 hectares of skiable terrain and has direct access to some excellent backcountry skiing.

The resort is accessed by oversnow vehicle from Perisher and is known for 2 Buck Tuesday, when one person pays a full priced Daytripper Pass for a fun day skiing at the Pass and $2 for their friend. On Thursdays day trippers from Perisher pay just $75 for full mountain lift pass, return oversnow transport and lunch plus a house beverage.

We’re all hoping for the very best season ever for Selwyn Snow Resort and that Charlotte Pass gets a 2024 season too and not just because they’ve got the cheapest day passes in Australia.
