Perfect beginner mountain
STARTING your first snow experience is made easier at Mount Baw Baw which is the perfect mountain to learn how to ski, combining numerous beginner friendly runs and ground tows to practice on before progressing to the more challenging slopes.
The ease of access from the village also makes it very appealing for families and beginners, with the slopes and accommodation all within an easy walk.
To assist you on your new-found snow adventures, the snow sports school is located in the heart of the village, with lessons available for all levels.
It is highly recommended to have first timer lessons if you are there for the weekend, which will see you up and sliding across the mountain and enjoying all the terrain. Professional instructors are eager to help you schuss the slopes and will offer a wealth of tips and knowledge to get you started.
Kids can learn how to ski or snowboard board with a three hour lesson and lunch, and if parents want to enjoy a day by themselves on the slopes, book the kids in for an all-day lesson.
There are several deals this year to encourage people to experience the enjoyment of visiting the snow. If you are looking for an affordable option for the family, Mt Baw Baw have mid week packages available via their website which provide great value for money.
This year Mount Baw Baw will be running a kids activity centre each weekend from June until August. Here you can join in and enjoy music, dancing, magic and craft fun.
