Skiing in Australia and New Zealand

Here at WinterKids, we’re getting into the thick of our summer adventures. Hiking, camping and, swimming are just a few activities we’ve been busy with but, we’re always antsy to see where the snow is falling. While we’re prepping our bikes and boats, Australia and New Zealand are prepping their skis and snowboards, if they haven’t done so already.

Don’t miss out on these great family resorts whether you’re going for a back to back winter from up north or have been patiently awaiting the snow down south.

Mt. Buller, Australia

Mt. Buller is an easy, quick trip from Melbourne if you don’t want a full weekend in the mountains. They offer ski school and even a resort spa for a day away from the kids. For family members that might not be too excited for skiing or snowboarding, there are cross country trails and two toboggan parks.

Bailey was born and raised in a small Colorado mountain town called Crested Butte. This is where her love for the outdoors started. She has now found herself in Denver, CO where the mountains aren't too far away. When she's not hiking, camping or skiing in the mountains she enjoys volunteering, going to sporting events (Go Broncos and Avs!) and making friends with any animal she comes across.
