There is no mistake of jumping on a lift at the start of the day and ending up in a place you can’t handle as everyone's first run will be the New Chum Bowl situated below the Selwyn Centre. The New Chum Bowl is a very wide beginners bowl, the perfect place to find your feet on skis or a snowboard. The New Chum double chairlift takes you back to the top. 

As you're skiing down New Chum you can see the Wombat T-bar and behind it, the Township Triple Chairlift both heading up the mountain to the left. These lead to the intermediate Township Trails where the more confident can practise their turns with a little more speed and a longer run. The Township triple chair will take you to the very top of the Mountain where the view is astounding.

Advanced skiers and boarders can make their way to the Race Course Area from the top of Township. Race Course T-bar runs up the middle of two black diamonds, Pig Gully on the left and Race Course on the right. They are the steepest slopes at Selwyn. To the right of Race Course is an intermediate option going down called Plum Pine. 

The second way to get Race Course is by taking the Powerline Poma which loads below bottom station Township and heads up the opposite side of the valley. Once you have reached the top there is a beginner and an intermediate slope which both arrive at the bottom of Race Course T-bar. We call these the Back Runs. 

Whether you are at the top of Township or Race Course you can make your way back to base via Home Run which is a beginner slope. It leads straight to The New Chum Bowl and the Selwyn Centre. 

That has all the main areas covered, as you can see on the map there are other trails around the resort. There is a total of 45 hectares of skiable terrain in a compact area so it is very hard to get lost, we even have parents letting the kids go off by themselves once they know the resort. The first lift to open and last to close is the New Chum chairlift so everyone must end up back at the Selwyn Centre at the end of the day.
