Mount Mawson is located within the Mount Field National Park approx. 1½ hours drive from Hobart in southern Tasmania. The ski area is at an altitude of approximately 1250m and usually gets fairly consistent snow falls during winter resulting in sufficient cover for downhill skiing from mid July to mid September. The area is also highly regarded by those enjoying cross country / alpine touring activities and it’s a popular starting point for tours.

This is a picturesque alpine environment featuring;  gnarly snow gums, unique pandani plants and the calls of the ubiquitous currawong birds trumpeting across the valleys.

Mount Mawson is a small club field operated by the Southern Tasmanian Ski Association (STSA) and is operated by volunteers from the various clubs on a roster basis. The area is open to the general public for downhill skiing / snowboarding and tows operate generally on weekends/during school holidays.
