You need chains!

It is advised to carry chains when driving to Selwyn. You can hire chains from any major petrol station or ski hire in Cooma, Adaminaby or Tumut. Make sure you get a technician to demonstrate how to put them on and take them off, and be sure you can do it yourself before you leave.

How much fuel do you need?

A full tank of fuel.

It sounds pretty obvious, but many guests every year find themselves in a position where they need to call the NRMA because they forgot to fill up. There is no petrol or diesel available at Selwyn Snowfields.
