Snowy Mountains Winter Activities

One way snow chain hire - drop off at Jindabyne
Chain Hire Fees

Khancoban is nested bellow the western slopes of the Kosciuszko National Park. It doesn’t snow here, but we do get to see the majestic snowy mountains up above !!

Alpine Way is open all year round, however during snow season you must carry snow chains to excess the mountain.

Khancoban Lakeside Caravan Park makes for a great central location to access the snow fields. Furthermore, our accommodation rates are just a fraction of those you would pay up at the ski resorts. This is great news for families on a budget where fun shouldn’t come at a high cost. Take your family out on a day trip to experience the magic of Snowy Mountains and relax in our roomy self contained cabins after a big day out!

The snow covered slopes and blue skies at Thredbo, Perisher, Mt Selwyn Snowfields and Charlotte Pass offer some of the finest skiing and boarding in Australia, at levels to suit everyone from beginner to advanced.

Down below in the valleys, there are still many fun things to do when you’re visiting Khancoban.

  • Fishing (Khancoban Dam is open all year)
  • Hiking and Horse riding
  • Bush walking and bird watching
  • Visit local museums and Snowy Hydro information centre
  • Relax by a warm fire
