Charlotte Pass, Snowy Mountains, NSW

Charlotte Pass Village is located in the heart of the Snowy Mountains, eight kilometres past Perisher Valley towards Mount Kosciuszko. It is the highest village in Australia. As the resort is entirely snowbound in winter access is only by oversnow transport from the Perisher Valley skitube terminal.

Charlotte Pass Village and the historic Kosciuszko Chalet have a long tradition in Australian skiing. In fact the Chalet was established in the first true alpine skiing area in Australia in 1930. It is the most intimate ski resort in Australia with only 12 club lodges plus the Kosciuszko Chalet for accommodation.

Charlotte Pass in summer is the starting point for two main trails to Mt.Kosciuszko. One being the Summit Walk which is 9 kms one way and the Main Range trail which is 12.5 km one way.
At the beginning of the Trail Heads there is a scenic board walk to view the magnificent Main Range of the New South Wales Alps and Mt. Kosciuszko.
