Selwyn Snow Resort is temporarily closed due to extensive fire damage. Please visit the Selwyn Snow Resort website for more information, including plans to rebuild an even better Selwyn.

Conveniently located between Cooma and Tumut, in central Kosciuszko National Park, Selwyn Snow Resort was a favourite place for families and beginners looking for an affordable snow holiday.

The nearby historic town of Kiandra, also affected by fire, is where Norwegian goldminers introduced recreational skiing to Australia in 1861 by fashioning skis from fence palings.
