Getting there & away
Cooma is the eastern gateway to the Snowy Mountains. The most spectacular mountain views can be enjoyed from the Kosciuszko Alpine Way (sometimes closed in winter), running between Khancoban, on the western side of the national park, and Jindabyne. You’ll need a car to use this road. There are restrictions on car use in the national park during the ski season; check with the NPWS or visitor centres at Cooma or Jindabyne before entering.
If you are just going to one place to ski, then public transport is an option. Otherwise, you’ll need a car, which does let you fully appreciate the region.
