What To Pack:

 

The average temperature in Australia over winter is -4°C, therefore it is imperative that you pack a number of layers to stay warm during your stay.


Layers. Start with a tight-fitting, breathable, non-cotton under-layer, then build outward with sweatpants, a light sweater or sweatshirt, and top it all off with a fleece that can be worn under an outer waterproof shell.
Lots of socks. Mix in some wool hikers along with your ski socks for the times you just want to walk around the resort. (Hot tip: Never wear two pairs of socks in your Ski boots / Snowboard boots. Your feet sweat, the moisture freezes and resulting in cold feet. If you’re suffering from icy toes, try a little talcum powder inside your socks instead)
Snow boots and sneakers.
Waterproof or water-resistant snow pants and jackets.
Eye protection. Don't overlook protecting your eyes from the sun, snow-glare and the elements. Goggles and sunglasses are a must for the entire family.
Sunscreen and lip balm. The Sun reflects off the snow this effect combined with the altitude means you'll definitely need to slather everyone in SPF 30 or higher before enjoying time outdoors
Waterproof mittens or gloves, glove liners, hats and neck gators or scarves. On snow days you'll definitely want a way to cover your entire face while skiing or riding down the mountain!
Hat Especially for the more fashion-conscious teenagers traveling with you, helmet-head can be easily disguised with a beanie during lunch and après ski.
A small backpack that can be left in a slope-side locker during the day, or that one member of the family can wear on the mountain to hold a bottle of water, sunscreen and other daily must-haves.
Bathing Suit: A must for the Après hot tub
A Youth I.D. Card 
for each of your children. In case your child zigs when you zag at a trail merge, we encourage you to fill out an I.D. card, stuff it in their jacket pocket, and instruct your child to present the card to any Resort employee if they become separated from you at any point during your stay.

Helmets We strongly recommend that you wear one. They’re comfy, warm and a great way to stay safe.
