  • Thredbo has something to offer skiers of all ages and ability, from the yellow and green runs reserved for beginners just finding their feet, to the web of blue and black runs ready to entertain intermediate and advanced skiers. Two-thirds of the mountain, including the Cruiser, Basin and Central Spur areas cater to intermediates, whilst experienced skiers can sink their teeth into the ‘Big Five’, Australia’s five longest runs as well as miles of backcountry terrain peppered with natural features and off-piste challenges.

  • Snowboarders can also rip into the huge variety of terrain parks, starting with the Easy Does It Park introducing the kids to rollers, berms, boxes and small jumps, the Cruiser Park for beginners to start jumping and jibbing, the Antons Park, Antons Jib Line, the early-season Kozzie Park and the two Rider cross courses loaded with banks, beams, jumps and rollers for intermediate and advanced boarders to show off their skills.

  • Ski and Boarding Events: for any skiers and boarders keen to scratch their competitive itch, the Annual Alpine Ascent Triathlon (March 23), the fourth annual Jye’s Jam (July 24) and Thredbo Masters 2019 (July 26-27) are amongst many of the epic Thredbo events dragging the world’s best to our fair mountain! 

 

Après Parties and Snow-cials for days!

  • The slopes are only half of Thredbo’s appeal, with a packed events calendar luring ‘snow-cialisers’ to the Snowy Mountains each year! And 2019 promises to be a big one, kicking off ski season with an opening weekend party on Saturday June 8 and keeping the good vibes pumping until an Octoberfest extravaganza on the last weekend of the season, October 5 and 6.

  • Thredbo Social Events: the slopes are open and sips are aplenty, with the Poolside Après Party (July 20), Thredbo Uni Week ( July 22-26), Lawski (August 1-3), and Schuss Bar lighting itself up most nights (especially weekends)!

  • Kids Ski FREE is great-value for families, throwing in a free 3 or 5-day Kids Lift Pass for every Adult Pass purchased (click HERE for more details). The village also offers runs to suit children of all abilities as well as lessons to introduce the little ones to skiing and snowboarding – certain programs cater for kids as young as 3yrs, such as the popular Thredboland Ski Program for 4-6yr olds, tailored to different levels of ability and ski disciplines, not to mention private lessons and childcare for children aged 6 months - 6yrs.

  • Not quite ready? The Thredbo Snow Play Park at the base station area of the village is open every day for tubing, tobogganing and just general snow play. It’s completely free to enter and you can bring along your own tubes and toboggans, otherwise, they’re available to rent, along with boots, jackets and pants.

  • Family Friendly Events: introducing a bumper line-up of family fun, starting with the Easter School Holiday Adventure Festival (April 13-27), July Kids Snow Festival (July 1-19), Torah Bright Mini Shred (July 14), Christmas in July (July 25) and the September Kids Snow Festival (September 22 – October 6).

  • Flare Run has been igniting Saturday nights in Thredbo for over 30 years, illuminating the Supertrail with flaming flares from top to bottom. The perfect way to kick off a magical Saturday night in Thredbo! Confident skiers and boarders over 18yrs can apply to take part, after a test at the Kosciuszko Snow Sports area at 4pm every Saturday – if you pass, you just need to register and make a $15 donation. Even kids are able to get amongst the fun every Thursday night on the Easy Does It slopes, lighting up the night with twinkly LED flares. You can also go twilight riding until 7pm on Friday Flat every Thursday and Saturday night in July and August.

  • At a slower pace, you can take a guided 2hr Toyota Mountain Tour throughout July and August – helping you better get to know the mountain, by following a guide on an off-piste adventure through the backcountry. Or perhaps, strap on your snow boots and trek to the top of Mt Kosciuszko, get the adrenaline pumping with some snow biking or try disc golf around the Thredbo Golf Course?

  • Lastly, don’t leave the Snowy Mountains without taking a scenic chairlift ride or you’ll miss out on the truly breathtaking views of the Kosciuszko National Park!

  • Conversely, away from the slopes, get some exercise at the Thredbo Leisure Centre complete with a heated pool, waterslide and blow-up obstacle course, or check out the Acrobatic Centre of Excellence and the NSW Institute of Sports Training Centre.

For further details, refer to our 'What's On In Thredbo 2019' Calendar to ensure you don't miss out on any of the pre or post-snow fallin fun!
