Following the NSW Government’s announcement that an agreement has been reached on a new 40 Year Lease for Selwyn Snow Resort, the Blyton Group are pleased to release the details of a significant Capital Investment program that will be undertaken in connection with the rebuild of Selwyn Snow Resort.
An Agreement for Lease has been signed with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, which has enabled Selwyn to now commence construction on what will be a significantly enhanced and reinvigorated resort.
This unprecedented investment at Selwyn Snow Resort will see the rebuilt resort transformed with brand new guest facilities, expanded state-of-the-art snowmaking, upgraded lifts and a range of exciting new products for sightseers and snow players.
A new vision for the future of Selwyn Snow Resort will deliver on key objectives for tourism, product development and economic growth, by providing new quality recreational activities, facilities and experiences that our guests will love for generations to come.
This transformation will see the reconfiguration of Selwyn’s Visitor infrastructure, with the significant expansion of the ‘Selwyn Centre’ that will house all guest facilities and services in the one building. The new Selwyn Centre will house an expanded Ski & Snowboard Hire, enhanced food and drink offerings and improved toilet amenities.
The resort will feature unparalleled snow play experiences with dedicated facilities and services to support them, including the construction of Australia’s Premier Toboggan Park featuring a dedicated 150 metre snow carpet for guests to use. The creation of a brand-new ‘Winter Wonderland’, the first of its kind in Australia, will see the introduction of a range of exciting new snow play products in the coming years including a tubing carousel, skating rink with bumper cars, kids snowmobiles and a miniature enchanted village.
Selwyn’s snowmaking capability will more than double, with the installation of state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment provided by TechnoAlpin. Selwyn Snow Resort will be the first snow resort in the Southern Hemisphere to install the brand new TT10 snow machines, which thanks to their next generation technology will enable snowmaking at temperatures more than two degrees warmer than the previous system.
Selwyn is currently undertaking a full upgrade New Chum Chairlift. In addition, Township Triple Chair will also be extended in the coming years to replace Powerline Poma. The Snowsports Learning Area is also being relocated and expanded, with the installation of two brand new dedicated snow carpets for guests to perfect their turns on.
