Please also be aware that there will be tobogganing in the Kosciuszko National Park this Winter.
Tobogganing, sledding and snow-tubing will not be permitted within Kosciuszko National Park in 2020. The COVID-safe plan prepared by Perisher Resort does not allow for tobogganing, sledding and snow-tubing, and Selwyn Snow Resort which has the only other dedicated tobogganing location is closed due to bushfire damage. There are no accessible areas in Kosciuszko National Park that will allow these activities to be safely undertaken or in accordance with the current COVID-19 physical distancing requirements.
With regards to snow play, the following applies:
NPWS is supporting the resort areas to manage visitor numbers for the winter 2020 season due to COVID-19 restrictions. NPWS and the resorts are asking visitors not to visit the ski resorts in 2020 specifically for snow play activities. This is because there are no areas allocated for snow play or tobogganing in 2020 due to the COVID Safe Operating Plan prepared by the resorts and supported by NPWS and the emergency services. Visitors can undertake snow play activities (excluding tobogganing), if they undertake these activities in a safe and suitable location. Examples of snow play activities include sightseeing, building a snowman, throwing snowballs, going for a short walk or other similar activities. NPWS is concerned about safety management of snow play user groups, as unsafe areas along road corridors may become crowded. Visitors should ensure their activities are undertaken in a safe location.
