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.
