A little bit of history

The Thredbo Alpine Resort is nestled within the stunning Kosciuszko National Park at the foot of the Crackenback Range, situated next to the snow fed Thredbo River which runs through the resort. The village sits at an altitude of 1,380 meters.

The Thredbo area was originally used as grazing land by local cattlemen. Graziers from surrounding districts brought their cattle up in summer to graze on the snowgrass plains, and took them back to the low country in winter. The cattlemen were responsible for the construction of most of the alpine huts and for naming many of the geographical features of the area. Cattle grazing was banned in the Kosciuszko National Park in 1957.

The construction of the Snowy Mountains Scheme opened up the alpine areas, and brought many European migrants with skiing experience to the area. One of these migrants was Tony Sponar, who identified the location of Thredbo, and, with Charles Anton, was one of its founders.  In May 1955, the Kosciusko Chairlift and Thredbo Hotel Syndicate was formed. In 1956 first chairlifts and ski runs were constructed.

The charming alpine village is now known as Australia’s Best Year Round Alpine Resort. When the mountain is fully covered by snow, Thredbo has the longest ski runs in Australia. In summer, Thredbo is a hiking and summer sport destination.

Twilight Skiing

If you’ve been cruising the slopes all day long and you’re just itching for more, then a cruise under the stars is the ultimate option. In July and August you can link turns down Friday Flat every Thursday and Saturday evening until 7:30pm. Taking to the mountain at night is a spectacular experience, quite different to day riding. And best of all is it's free from 4:30pm.

Snow Play Area

New for winter 2014, situated at the base of the mountain near the valley terminal tennis courts.

Guests can now ride a toboggan, slide on a snow tube, have a snowball fight or make snow angels.

With new snow guns in the area, there's always a chance of fresh snow.

Flare Run

Look to the skies and the Supertrail for one of Thredbo’s finest traditions, the flare run and fireworks display. It lights up the village on Saturday nights and it’s a sure fire way to kick start a night on the town. For over 25 years visitors to Thredbo have enjoyed the weekly fireworks and flare run display and in 2007, 1,269 skiers and snowboarders took part in a flare run to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Thredbo landslide, smashing the Australian record for the biggest flare run.

Thredbo Leisure Centre

You can pump up at altitude and fine tune your muscles, take part in a fitness class, swim a few laps in the Olympic sized heated pool, play all your favourite games in the huge sports hall, have a hit of squash, climb the bouldering wall and have a round of mini golf. For the kids (and young at heart) there’s Mission Inflatable, the blow up obstacle course and the wicked waterslide, both sure to keep the good times rolling on.

Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing is a perfect way to discover Australia's unique wilderness and wildlife, at your own pace, for as short or as long as you like. You can also participate in a guided tour or experience the wonder of the snowfields at night under a full moon and learn about mountain fauna and flora

Walking

There are a variety of trails around the village and its surrounds. Free maps are available from the Ticket Office at Valley Terminal.
