Selwyn is family and budget friendly but there is still plenty on offer. We stayed at nearby Anglers Reach, with about a forty minute drive. There is plenty of parking but of course, the earlier you arrive the closer you get. We hired equipment at...More

This place is great for those not interested in skiing or snow boarding. Tobboganing and Tubing was a blast. Bring your own food as the selection is not great. Otherwise like another reviewer said great but not glamorous
