Snowshoeing and Winter Hiking | Mt Baw Baw

Snowshoeing and Winter Hiking

If downhill ski or snowboard is not for you why not give Snowshoeing a try? Mt Baw Baw's setting amongst the Snow Gum setting make it the perfect place for a winter hike!

Winter Snowshoeing
The sheltered slopes and bowls of the Baw Baw Plateau provide the perfect location for beginner to intermediate snowshoeing or hiking in winter. Please note: you are responsible for your own safety when planning and participating in winter activities. We recommend visiting our Guest Services building to sign a trip intentions form. Snowshoes are required when walking on the Village's trails and recommended in the National Park.

Snow shoes are available for hire on mountain at Baw Baw Ski Hire and through the Howling Huskys. They can also be found at other business off mountain.

Powder Pup Snow Shoe Tour
Gear up with a pair of snowshoes and walking harness and let our senior sled dogs show you the beauty of their favourite trails. As you journey into the trees with only the sound of crunching snow beneath your feet, your experienced guide will show you the fun we have keeping our retired dogs fit, happy and healthy. This tour is great for all ages and is based on keeping our dogs minds sharp and engaged.  So make snow angles together, play catch with a snowball or just embrace the gentle nature of these dogs while enjoying the view.

Please note: children under the age of 13 cannot walk a dog on their own. The minimum charge for a Powder Pup Snowshoe Tour is 2 adults – maximum group size is 10. Tour availability is limited per day.
