Tobogganing is a fantastic way to introduce your young children to snow and maybe even spark the little skier or snowboarder within them!! From Melbourne, Lake Mountain (90 mins) and Mt Baw Baw (2.5 hrs) are the closest alpine areas for tobogganing and both cater to families with children, with clothing and toboggan hire available on site, as well as cafes and restaurants (and toilets) to make your day go smoothly.
If you’re keen to go to one of the bigger, downhill ski resorts (Mt Baw Baw offers downhill skiing and boarding, however only has surface lifts, T-bars, pomas and platters) such as Mt Buller or Mt Hotham, all of the bigger resorts have dedicated tobogganing areas and gear for hire too. Do not take toboggans on ski runs, only use designated tobogganing areas for your own safety
Ensure your kids have proper clothing (jacket and pants or an all-in-one), gloves, socks and boots so they stay dry and warm and enjoy their time at the snow!
