Thrills and spills
With a ski and snowboard school packed with experienced instructors from across the globe, there's no better place to get your first tutorial or learn some new tricks. So sign up for private lessons or hit one of the two terrain parks to work on your skills. Intermediate to advanced skiers will love the Big Air Bag – a 9 x 15 metre cushion situated behind a two metre jump, ready to break your fall when you push that little bit harder on your grabs, airs and spins. To avoid the queues and save a few pennies, book online before you go.
Settle into the relaxed village pace and soak up the winter holiday vibe. Modern facilities cater for day trippers and long term visitors alike. You'll find ski hire, food outlets, shops, medical and information centres all within an easy stroll of the car parks. Mt Baw Baw offers a wide variety of accommodation too, from great backpacker options and family packages to luxury apartments and spa suites.
