VICTORIAN downhill ski resort, Mt Baw Baw, has announced a series of new activities set to open in time for the 2019 ski season.

The Frosti Frog Hollow Toboggan Park, located in the middle of the village, has refreshed its offering, with a dedicated snow machine pumping a daily dumps onto the slope to ensure the trail is well-covered for thrill-seekers. The park has also launched a “Magic Carpet” lift, taking guests on a swift journey back up the hill after their ride down the mountain.

The resort is also the first alpine resort in Australia to offer organized snowball fights, with the launch of the National Snowball Fighting Championship this season. Using the original rules from the Japanese sport, snowfighters are encouraged to enter with a group of friends or family and compete for the winning title.

Kids under six can also experience a free 15 minute trial snowboarding lesson, allowing them to get a feel for the board before committing to a full session.
