Austen is nestled in the Dargo subdivision near the edge of a huge ravine that overlooks the Southern Alps. It is a short walk over snow-covered tracks to the commercial establishments and to free village buses that take you to the central summit. Groomed Crosscountry Ski Trails begin near the Lodge and stretch for kilometres in either direction, whilst alpine skiers can ski down the Frosty Drop trail to meet the main ski runs and lifts.
