Things to do in the Mountains if you don’t ski


Not a skier? Don’t know what to do with yourself on a family trip to the Mountains? Are you not keen to slap on a set of skis or snowboard and hit the mountain? Here’s a few ideas for you!

Yarrangobilly Caves-

Yarrangobilly is in the northern part of Mt Kosciuszko National Park and is well worth exploring. There are self-guided walks through the caves offering a variety of ice-age looking and colourful passages. Nearby is the thermal pools with a consistent 27 degrees making them the perfect place for a swim during both the summer AND winter months!

Horse Riding-Thredbo Leisure Centre great after skiing

Live the “Man from Snowy River” dream and ride a horse through some of the most beautiful country in Australia! With guided trails from 1 hr to a full day ride it’s suitable for most ages with pony rides available for the littlies! And if you are lucky you can even ride in the snow!!


Sick of the cold and want to escape for a while? Head down to the Leisure Centre in Thredbo for a warm and refreshing swim. With a large Olympic sized pool, a blow up obstacle course and even a water slide, it is set up for the whole family to enjoy!

Snow Shoeing-

Rigged with tennis-racket-like contraptions on your feet, treading among dense snow gums, alpine flora, and beautiful landscapes. If you can walk, you can snowshoe!

Dog Sledding Tours-

Dog Sled Tours

Available in Mt Hotham, the stunning team of Siberian Huskies take you back in time while touring throughout the backcountry trails. With different packages to choose from, meeting the dogs and taking the trip of a lifetime is well worth it!

Day spa-

Taking a break away from the kids, why not pamper yourself with an amazing spa treatment?! Spend the day having aromatherapy facials, massages, sauna’s and spa baths! (Then treat yourself to a nice glass of wine!)


There are so many options for fun in the mountains if you are not a keen skier, and with all the above mentioned I haven’t even started on the food! I might leave that for next time…
