Driving in the Snowy Mountains

Welcome to The Snowy Mountains road sign

When you're driving in the Snowy Mountains, stay 'cool' on the road.

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 use these roads all year round. With Transport for NSW funding $6 million of projects in the Snowy Mountains, and increased heavy vehicle activity from Snowy 2.0, sharing the road in the Snowys has never been more important. Wait for trucks to pull into the slow turnout lanes, or for a safe opportunity to overtake.

The Snowy Mountains are not a place you want to rush through. Take your time, stop regularly and explore the local towns.

When you're travelling around the Snowy Mountains, be patient and share the road. Every person on our roads has a story.

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