We spent three days in the snow back in August and enjoyed every minute. Lots of natural snow, great slides for kids and great atmosphere! Highly recommended.

Family of four (2+2) took advantage of extended season to visit end of September 2017. Having been to Perisher Valley and Thredbo in the past, I'd say that Selwyn is more suitable for kids around age of mine 6 & 8 yrs. We were a...More

The resort is great for families with lots of easy green and blue runs, but well overpriced for lift tickets and lessons on a comparison basis to other resorts. The food was the worst alpine food I've had. Chicken burgers for $16 with processed chicken...More

Beautiful destination for a short snow experience with kids. We went for 3 days. But probably only needed one or two days. It's a very small resort. Perfect for beginners snowboarding/skiing. But by the end of the second day we had experienced all the resort...More

Yes there are. Special lessons for 6 and under. We've just come back from a trip that included 2x 5 year olds who learned to ski for the first time.
