Got Questions about Ski Hire or the Snow?
The Shed Ski Hire has over 30 years experience in equipping people to enjoy great days of skiing, snowboarding and snow play. We answer queries every winter season from people just like you.
Here's some common questions that we encounter.
Do I need to hire snow chains?
Snow chains are used in snowy conditions to gain extra traction on the road. All 2-wheel drive (2WD) vehicles entering Kosciuszko National Park between the June and October long weekends must carry snow chains.
Although 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles don’t require chains, we still recommend carrying them. They may be required in the event of extreme weather conditions.
Whether you'll need to use snow chains depends on the weather and road conditions. You must fit snow chains to your vehicle if prompted by park signs, park rangers, police or RMS staff.
More info on fitting snow chains and safe snow driving is on our Snow Driving page.
