Australia Ski Resorts Ratings

Everyone has different variables that are important when deciding on the best Australia ski resorts so we've provided ratings (out of 5, where 5 is outstanding) for various factors relating to the major Victorian ski resorts and NSW ski fields. Our ratings for the Australian ski resorts are based on our experiences of visiting the various ski areas around Victoria and NSW. For more detailed ratings and definitions on each of the categories see our full Powderhounds ski resort ratings on the best skiing page, which also compare the Australia ski resorts to those in New Zealand, Canada, Japan, USA, Europe and South America.
