Charlotte Pass is Australia's highest resort (1765m), boasting some of the country's best snow sports and cosy winter accommodation on the slopes. With friendly and personalised guest service, no lift lines, uncrowded slopes, and unobstructed views of the mountain peaks including Mount Kosziuszko, you’ll not be disappointed.

After an action-packed day on the beginner, intermediate and cross-country trails, or carving up Sidewinder and Guthrie's Chute, rest your head in style at Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel, the resort’s premier ski-in ski-out facilities. All rooms offer spectacular valley or mountain views, and when it comes time to unwind, there are two bars, a bistro café, and a fine dining restaurant.

In summer, Charlotte Pass is the starting point for the Mt Kosciusko Summit walk and Main Range walk to Australia's highest mountain.
