Have you wanted to take Cubs away for a fabulous weekend during winter but had no idea where to go? The Snow Activities Team can solve this problem for you!
Each year, a bus load of Cubs hit the slopes of Perisher for a fantastic weekend of tobogganing and touring around the snowy regions of Mt Kosciusko. The trip commences on a Friday night leaving Sydney at approximately 6pm and arriving at Jindabyne by about 1am.
We spend the day at Perisher where we toboggan, then drive up to Charlottes Pass if conditions permit to view the main range and Mt Kosciusko. We normally have lunch at Perisher. As the snowfields are a long way from home we try to spend as much time on the snow as possible, bearing in mind the weather conditions and the Cubs.
We go to Thredbo and take the chairlift to Crackenback where the Cubs can play and build snowmen. Tobogganing is not permitted at Thredbo. Lunch is usually in the park.
Who Can Do It?
Cubs and Leaders from all over the Region
