5-nights Panorama Jindabyne stay
Nestled inland between Sydney and Melbourne, the aptly-named Snowy Mountains are where Australians come to play during the winter months.
July and August.
The coldest months of the year in Australia, July and August, offer the best snow conditions in the area’s ski resorts. Temperatures at the top of resorts like Thredbo, Mount Buller and Charlotte Pass hover at around freezing during these months.
The Snowy Mountains is Australia’s premier ski destination. It's where you’ll find Thredbo, Perisher, Selwyn Snowfields, Charlotte Pass, Mount Hotham, Falls Creek, Mount Buller and Mount Baw Baw. These resorts can be reached from Canberra in about two and a half hours, from Melbourne in about three hours and from Sydney in about six hours.
July and August is mid-winter in Australia and the prime time to go skiing, as this is when temperatures are low enough to make snow. While ski resorts may still operate during the shoulder months of June and September, going during the peak season will offer more of a selection in runs. Also, lift passes and rental prices aren’t generally cheaper when fewer trails are open.
If you're travelling with children, the July school holidays and weekends will likely also offer more activities for them.
The best time to visit the Snowy Mountains for the weather: July and August are the coldest months, during which snow is most likely to fall.
The cheapest time to visit the Snowy Mountains: For skiing, the shoulder months of June and October offer cheaper hotel prices and have the most deals available. While ticket and rental prices won’t change much during the season, most resorts to offer discounts for booking in advance.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.

Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved.
