Visited Selwyn for the first time and thought for the benefit of others that I'd share some of my observations and experience. Firstly, as a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, we really enjoyed the day and will return next week. (We stay at Jindabyne each year and usually just visit Thredbo.) Whilst the general experience was good, it could be even better with only a few minor improvements by the resort. Buying the lift tickets took longer than you would expect - allow anything between 15 and 30 minutes. We didn't need to hire equipment but this looked fairly time consuming and a bit haphazard-suggest also look at hiring in the local towns if you have that option to avoid waisting snow time. No piste maps anywhere- it's not a big hill and after a few hours in good visibility you probably don't need them but for first timers, would have helped. Eg we ended up at the bottom of the green run Long Arm but then realised after it was too late that the only way to return to the village was via the rather daunting Race Course T bar. My 9 year old in tears wanting to walk up rather than tackle the T bar but thankfully managed to convince him to have a go. Wouldn't have taken Long Arm run with him if I'd known but the run was excellent and if you can deal with T bars, highly recommend it. Walking back to the car park at the end of the day, the same 9 year old wanted to have a couple of runs on the toboggan course. Turns out you need to pay an additional $10 on top of the lift ticket. I get the idea of charging separately for non skiers but why not include as part of the full lift ticket? I wasn't paying an additional $10 per child for only a few runs. The tubing next to the toboggan area looked great fun. Contrary to some other posts, we didn't find the chemical smell of the composting toilets that overpowering inside, but you could just about smell them outside the building. Not that bad, but not the clean mountain air that you might expect. Happily, the toilets were fairly clean. We didn't book lessons but 2 others near us both complained that their instructor hadn't turned up. Don't know how that ended up and whether that was a one off or a misunderstanding by the learner group. Saw other instructors around the hill and looked very professional. They have signs up in the cafe saying not to reserve tables but completely ignored- lots of eskys and stuff left on tables with no one there, both inside and outside. Whilst the option of bringing your own food helps to keep costs down, it was very disappointing that even if you are buying food you can't easily find a table. Next time, I might reluctantly just move gear that has been 'abandoned' so that I can sit to eat my lunch. The food on offer was fairly consistent with cafe food at the other ski hills here in NSW and VIC. $5 for a bucket of chips and the usual range of burgers etc. The car park is properly tarred and close to the buildings so easy to pop back and get stuff. Was only half full when we visited but guess it would be different at weekends and school holidays. A sign says to approach the car park attendant if you are disabled but didn't see any attendant. Maybe just a marked disabled badge space(s) near the entrance would work better? We did see the National Park ranger checking park passes. The lifties were all friendly but only one at top and bottom compared with 2 or more at the other hills. Given the beginner nature of skiers, another liftie at each chair might have been safer and helped give the younger kids more help. All the runs are forgiving and the snow was excellent when we visited. Definitely a great place for a day or two, whether your family is just starting to ski or just wanting to play in the snow. Kids will easily gain confidence on the wide open slopes. Happy to recommended but don't feel that the resort is at its fullest potential.
