He'll get it at that age. I found it easy to drag blowette up and down the hill at selwyn. Tied a stock to her "powder skirt" and pulled her up. She was only ever good for about 3 runs early on. Pretty cheap to hire kiddies gear.

Snow Blowey: How did the boy go? Skis or board?
Nah just snow play. He's only 3.5. Good to check out Selwyn but if he shows an interest next year I reckon the Thredbo magic carpet is the go. If he's not to fussed and we wait another two or three years then I think the 2 Selwyn chairs will be perfect. There is some really good snow play zones on the run in around Kiandra!!

Belly: Magic day at Selwyn today!! Great to check it out as a first time visitor. Carpark was at capacity but we got a good spot arriving at 1130 near the poma and at the end of the row against the snowbank which was perfect for the little one.

Heading there to tomorrow for the first time with a friend and his first timer 3 yr old twins. Should be a fun cruisey day, hopefully the rain holds off until evening.

One of the good things about selwyn . Wind generally not a problem

Strong winds predicted for this weekend, when my family and I are due to go there. Is Selwyn exposed and unpleasant in the wind? Do the lifts often shut down?

Any folks been out touring from the kiandra end since the snow on the weekend? 3 mile dam still saying 0cm snow depth, but deep creek looks ok. Wife wants to solo thredbo to kiandra next week (i.e. 18/8 onwards), and asking me to check up if snow in the northern end is filled in and likely good to ski for another week or more, or if it is still unconsolidated, or likely to fade pretty fast... Thanks.

teleroo: And today, opposite view angle though. Nice cornices. Cornices present along the road at spots all the way from Old Adaminaby, Kiandra etc.
Looks amazing. I unfortunately didn't end up that way this weekend. We opted for Dead Horse Gap instead.

Sean Sunley: Has anyone been Tumut to Selwyn this weekend? I'm thinking of coming up tomorrow but only have a 2wd. I won't bother if it is chains for a long period.

Always a good day at Selwyn when they've got to dig out the chairlifts. Will post a few more pics later one telejoeys are fed and put to bed.

Lady Penelope: A few questions for the Selwyn regulars. Is the resort within the National Park? How far is it from the car park to the lifts in terms of walking distance? Thank you :)
As said, yes it is in KNP. If you have a season ticket on the windscreen, it's valid. If not, there's a park entry station a km or so up The Link Road from the Snowy Mountains Highway. Selwyn differs from Perisher in that you ski down from the car park to the lifts. Where most people aim to park is near the Selwyn Centre, which gives you a short walk to the top of the New Chum chair and ski down to the Township or Powerline lifts. However the Cooma local with whom I spent 3 days last week lapping Township, tells me that if you park right up the back of the car park (the far end as you arrive), you have a very short walk to the top of Powerline poma to ski down, and conversely a very short walk from the top of Powerline back to the car in the afternoon. I was unable to verify this myself however, as Powerline was closed when I was there.

Noah: Did anyone see if they opened up all of Selwyn yesterday? Just curious how long it takes them to open Kangaroo ridge back area for future reference.
