      By my accounts they were pretty much 100% open from last week of June to first week of September, pretty awesome by Selwyn standards.

      They're closed for the season now according to their snow report. Looks like they had a good one though ---- they deserved it after a few marginal ones.

      Quoting Majikthise: Does the jindy tip still have a good selection of S/H boots and skis for kids?
      There will also be the Jindy ski swap next long weekend.

      ahh. Got her an Aldi outfit(clothing and gloves). Been hiring some 67cm skis and boots from the place at Talbingo. Also hired from Rhythm. Now i know she likes it i will get her some skis and boots for next year. Hiring is painful as it adds 30min to what is already a long trip down and eats into that awake and energetic time of the 3 yr old.

      Quoting Majikthise: Great news.. It is a great spot for kids.Where did you camp and what are you doing for fear for the blowette
      Majik - this time we actually had some accommodation at Jindy with my brother this time. A couple of weeks back we spent 3 nights at Island Bend and camping went really well. This trip we left home (Dubbo) early Wednesday morning and were on snow at Selwyn around 10.30am. I towed her up the hill for about 3 hours on and off until she was stuffed. We did lots of straight snow ploughs but no turning. Then we headed to Jindy. On Thursday went up to Thredbo to ski with my brother and his family. My memory o Merrits was that it was suitable for little miss given previous days efforts with snow plough. But i was wrong and just getting from Gunbarrel Traverse to the cafe was a nightmare. Think kid out of control flying past other punters and lucky not to hit someone or something, with dad in a huge panic trying to catch up and also miss earlier referenced punters. Ended up back down at Friday Flat and had limited success. She had stayed awake playing with cousins the night before so was lacking strength to snow plough. Did a bit in the afternoon session after 2.5hr sleep in the car at midday. Cousins did the flare run and they all got into the dancers that were on before hand. On friday we didn't intend to ski but found ourselves in the vicinity of Selwyn with a couple of hours of daylight spare. This was an awesome time to get there. Slopes were empty and snow had softened nicely. Again some manual towing up the slopes. After a couple of straight runs i realised she was turning a bit here and there so i decided to run out in front of her and tell her to ski toward me. Then would run the other way so she had to turn and follow me. Worked a treat so we hit the steep Wombat run and did that nice and slowly before heading home. She asked if we could go skiing again yesterday so plan is coming together already. Not sure what "fear" you are referring to? Fear of camping or skiing? She seems to want to do both. Has asked to go camping a few time since our last trip also. Was a bit painful for mum and dad being confined in a small tent with very active child though. Tent was very comfortable with the fire going inside.

      Was back for a couple of days last week. Again a really excellent place for beginners. I was able to tow my kid up the hill on foot for a couple of hours without any of the staff getting upset. Then found everybody really friendly around the kiosk area. Even better was that little miss has ploughing and turning all sussed out now. Yesterday afternoon she managed to ski Wombat top to bottom doing S's the whole way with only one intervention from me.

      Skiied Selwyn on Sunday and was very pleased with the snow quality. It makes me smile how they rate the runs but, racecourse would be a hard green or easy blue at most other resorts. But fun was had and although tracked out, ungroomed meadows was a pleasure to ride. Did bout 5 hours with my son and that should last me another 30 years. Its good to see the resort looking full and all the happy kids about.

      We drove from Cooma to Selwyn on Saturday, perfect and rare winters day, fresh snow, blue skies, no wind and temperatures below zero. Slow trip along the highway due to snow on the road all the way through Kiandra and Adaminably and a VERY long wait to get parks pass (30 mins +) Snow cover was unbelievably good, stayed cold and hardpacked all day. The snow play areas were packed - but there was never more than 1 or 2 minute wait for the Racecource T-bar. It was a perfect warm up for legs that have not skiied for several years. Skiied Thredbo on Sunday but the snow quality was way better at Selwyn!

      Quoting dayzoff: I taught my daughter to ski when she was 3 at Selwyn. It was 15 yrs ago but we just bought 1 lift ticket to share between wife and I. The beginner area is so good and gentle that I just walked back up the hill with the little one and then skied again with her in front of me until she got better. One weekend of this and then the next time she was ready to ride the lift. I remember that they used to almost stop the lift to load little ones. Try the side country trees in a west direction further up the ridge from the top that drops down a drainage gully back to near the bottom of the racecourse t-bar. Faces a bit north but if you get it with good cover and cold temps it is a lot of fun and you get a bit of distance to.
      I camped there for a few nights in the freezing rain and sleet as a teenager on a school x-c trip in 1988. We didn't have lift tickets but hung out halfway up and got one of the tall kids to grab the t-bar for us as it went past....nobody really gave us any grief.

      Family booked in for 2nd & 3rd August. Hopefully I can get a bit of skiing in between building Olafs for my 3 year old and generally pretending we are on the set of Frozen..

      Quoting Nowada: We are going for a day with my sons scout troop on 3rd August, I am looking forward to seeing Selwyn again after 30 years. Has anything changed apart from tube rides and snow making ?
      They've replaced the Township T-bars with a triple chair.

      Quoting Hacski: Its great with kids as they can't get lost. Not just because the fewer numbers make it easier to spot people but because everyone just goes round and round and sooner or later you meet up.
      I agree totally with this. We went with friends in the school holidays and had 4 boys between 10 and 13. Basically we just told the boys to look after each other, be nice to the lifties and come and find the parents when you get hungry...... They had an absolute ball and it gave us a chance to focus on the younger kids. Well done to the team at Selwyn. You have identified a niche market and cater to it perfectly. Oh, and the abundance of snow this year helped as well.

      Had a great day at Selwyn today. Not too crowded despite being the ACT holidays and a weekend. The poma next to Township stopped quite a few times (this seems to happen every year) - I wish they would just fix it (and the toilets!). Excellent groomed snow and lots of it, the kids enjoyed their ski lessons and we skied until closing time. The carpark was quite full but I think many visitors were on the toboggan/tube run rather than the slopes.
