Driving in the Snowy Mountains

Welcome to The Snowy Mountains road sign

Driving in the Snowy Mountains is a unique experience, and you’ll be sharing the road with a diverse range of road users.

In winter, the roads can become very busy with tourist traffic heading to the ski fields, and the weather can make driving conditions hazardous. Heavy vehicles also use these roads all year round and their numbers have now increased with work on Snowy 2.0 ramping up.

When you're travelling around the Snowy Mountains, be patient and share the road.

Here is some information about sharing the road, how to drive in alpine conditions, and the infrastructure projects taking place in the Snowy Mountains.
