Cross Country activities in Kosciuszko National Park
Skiing or snowboarding in Australia is oft derided for its short season and unpredictable snowfalls. But don't be put off. Perisher has upgraded its facilities to enable more reliable connections between major chairlifts. When there is snow on the ground there's plenty of fun to be had, with long meandering runs to keep beginner and intermediate skiers happy and enough short sharp black runs for the more experienced.
The scenery is also worth getting excited about, making Nordic (cross-country or langlauf) skiing popular too. Some of the best trails run along old cattle-herders' huts.

Skiing or snowboarding in Australia is oft derided for its short season and unpredictable snowfalls. But don't be put off. Thredbo has recently forked out a fortune to automate its snowmaking machines (ensuring 25% of rideable terrain is covered). If the outcome is not exactly 100% guaranteed snow, it's a pretty good start.
