This is a relatively easy half day snowshoe tour through the snow gums in the more protected sub alpine area. You will immediately understand just how easy & enjoyable snowshoeing is with a free mind to appreciate the beautiful surrounds. Unsure if you are up for a full day tour? Start with a half day & see how you go. 

Note: that unlike tours out of Thredbo, journeys from Guthega or Perisher do not incur the extra expense of a chairlift ride
