Ever since being to Canada, we love the snow, and would like to spend a few days somewhere not too far away from Brisbane, and where we can stay and it will be in the snow, but also where my 16 son can do some skiing / snowboarding lessons (he's never tried either). The Aussie fields seem a long way from where we would fly to (ie Canberra / Melb / Sydney), and from what ive seen you can't stay at the snow in Queenstown. I have thought of Tassie in 2nd week of July, but now sure how far from landing point (would fly in), to snow, and if there is accommodation at snow, or how to get from Hobart etc to snow.
Any ideas would be GREAT. Ta
