Snowy Mountains Backcountry tours are your passport to the glistening winter wonderland beyond Kosciuszko’s popular ski resorts. 

For a safe introduction to the backcountry, try their guided day tour for skiers and snowboarders. You’ll learn new skills and techniques to travel safely and efficiently through the mountains. The tours take place on easier, low-angled slopes, setting you up to progress to their more advanced courses.

If your winter sport is snowshoeing, Snowy Mountains Backcountry has a range of tours for you as well. Travel with your guide across the snowy landscape into the tranquil heart of mountains, with plenty of time to enjoy stunning views of lakes, peaks and valleys.
