Once you are all rugged up, tobogganing is a cheap and fun way to enjoy the snow. Following a few rules will ensure you are safe and have fun at the same time.
Only toboggan in designated areas. Most resorts will have one. Sheets of plastic, tubes etc are illegal. Toboggans can be hired from many Ski shops in the area. When tobogganing walk on the sides of the toboggan runs. Walking up the middle is asking for a collision. It also creates an uneven surface which is dangerous.

Cross country ski trails are groomed. A Cafe is open and toboggan hire is available at Dingo Dell and if sufficient snow the snow tubing park at Dingo Dell runs as well.
