Thredbo is Australia’s alpine resort. Thredbo 12 months a year offering for pursuits from walkers in the summer months to skiers in the winter. The ski season in Thredbo opens on the Queens birthday weekend in June and closes early October.
The Thredbo currently has 13 ski lifts rising from 1380 metres in the valley to over 2000 metres at the top of Karels Tbar in the area known as the Basin
Over the summer months beginning in November, Thredbo is transformed from white to green, from skiers to walkers with the aim to walk to Mt Kosciuszko.
Thredbo is located in south east New South Wales and snuggles alongside the Thredbo River into the foothills of Australia’s highest mountains and through its beginnings has a very European ambience. Up until the early 70′s the Thredbo river was known as the Crackenback River.
In Thredbo there are places to stay, places to play and places to pray, all tucked up in the 1000 hectares that make up the cosy alpine resort. Slope-side is activity central all year round, and the other side of the mountain is full of facilities, modern services and has a great village atmosphere.
A highlight of Thredbo is that it is a village for all seasons, each with its own amazing distinct features. The chilly winter winds bring snowfalls that blanket the mountain and soon the slopes are buzzing with snow lovers.
When spring arrives, the snow thaws to reveal lush green trails ready for hikers and bikers and the sleepy flora are transforms into a carpet of colour – bluebells, delicate camomil, yellow kunzea, e and many varieties of daisy.
By the height of summer, backpacks and walking boots are the norm with Thredbo and the Main Range bustling with explorers and bursting with colour. Summer in the snowy mountains is all about relaxation and enjoying the beautiful alpine world highlighted by summer events such as the Thredbo Blues Festival in January and the Jazz Festival in May. For the active and sports enthusiasts the village has a very challenging 9 hole golf course right in the village as well as tennis courts, the institute of sport with its Olympic sized pool, mountain biking, fishing and don’t forget the unforgetable walks to Mt Kosciuszko from the top of eagles nest.
