Our history is the history of skiing!
Selwyn originated from Kiandra, located a stone’s throw away. Kiandra was the birthplace of the first ski club in the world established in the 1860s!
Skiing began at Selwyn in 1966 when a portable rope tow built by founder Colin Myers, was installed on the run we now know as Township. The rope tow was so successful that it continued for several years.
Back then life was simple. Tickets were sold out of a duffle bag at the bottom of the lift. Tins of pineapple juice were the only commodity on sale and were sold out of a makeshift shop front in Colin’s car.
In July 2016 Selwyn was sold to Selwyn Snow Resort Pty Ltd and is now a part of the Blyton Group of companies.
In 2019/2020, the Black Summer bushfires swept through the mountains, destroying Selwyn’s infrastructure, environment and impacting the local community. The Blyton Group focused on rebuilding and transforming Selwyn with sights-set on a re-opening for winter 2023. Selwyn reopened to the public in Winter 2023.
Today, Selwyn is bustling with adventure and fun!
