Australia’s smallest ski resort, Mt Mawson in Tasmania is a little different. We show you why.
1 – Wear a dangly bit
To ride the hill, clip your hanging dangle to a rope taking care not not tangle your dangle and be dragged through wooden fences into a revolving pulley.
2 – Cheapest ski pass in Australia
The smallest ticket office in the green shed and costs just $30. Be served by friendly volunteers. And no queue!
3. Walk up a mountain
A 30 minute walk from the car park. No bus, no chairlift, just great views and wildlife. But you can ski down!
4. Pee in a container
That’s the resort base station! At least there is a toilet in the container.
5 – Lie in the snow
Plenty of sun, no deckchairs, no problem the snow is soft.
6 – Help Out
Mt Mawson is run by volunteers so lend a hand digging out the tows in the morning.
7 – Take in views
Next stop is Antartica and Argentina looking over the remote South West Wilderness area. The fences built by the volunteers stop the Antarctic gales.
8 – Ski Unprepared Pistes
Enjoy the short natural pistes with something for everyone. No piste bashers.
9 – Drive up a mountain
Reach the Lake Dobson car park climbing 16km through forest and moorland. On some days have fun fitting chains.
