Essential info

Key facts about Snowy Mountains holiday rentals

Most travellers head to The Snowies to enjoy the numerous ski resorts and participate in winter sports. Even if you’re not planning to hit the slopes, however, there are a few key facts you need to know in preparation. Make sure you pack warm. Have plenty of thermals and vests along with a woolly hat. It may be cold, but the Snowy Mountains can get a lot of sun as well. While it’s not warm enough to melt the snow, the UV rays can still burn, so bring some sunscreen. If you do plan on skiing, it’s generally a good idea to rent the equipment first rather than buy it outright when you have no experience. There are many ski shops among the mountains, so you’ll have no problem finding the equipment you need near holiday rentals.
