Thredbo was first explored as an Australian winter resort during the construction of the Snowy Hydro Scheme. A few ski enthusiasts built ski lodges and accommodation in the late 1950’s and in 1967 the occupation of the village was formalised in a 45 year lease drawn up between Kosciusko Thredbo and the NSW Government.
Thredbo offers great skiing and snowboarding with 480 hectares of snow covered ski fields. Thredbo has Australia's longest ski runs including the Crackenback Super Trail which goes for over 5 kilometres serviced by the Kosciuszko Express that can whisk you from bottom to top in just 7 minutes. Furthermore all Thredbo’s ski runs are reached by a network of chair lifts and T-bars and snow making all over the mountain. The Cruiser area is dedicated to those looking for wide open tree lined trails and access to the High Noon Supertrail with pristine corduroy to conquer. The automation of the snowmaking has been an outstanding success. The snow product just keeps getting better, which is great for customers and great for the future of the snow industry. The standout of this automated system is that it is energy efficient, producing triple the amount of snow with close to the same energy output.
So what does that mean for you? Well, simply… more snow. When conditions allow, Thredbo’s mammoth snowmaking system fires up and has the capability to cover trails for all levels of snow rider.
The Thredbo après-ski scene lets you party hard from dusk till dawn, experience memorable dining in one of twenty different cafes and restaurants and enjoy great live music. Every Saturday night the mountain comes alive with the spectacular Flare Run and fireworks display on the Kosciusko Super trail. If further exercise is your desire, or you want to loosen up those tired muscles then head to the Thredbo Leisure Centre for an array of equipment to satisfy any fitness freak, or you can tackle the boulder wall, shoot some hoops, play squash or indoor soccer. Or just have a swim in the Olympic size heated pool with spa.
Once you get to Thredbo you shouldn’t need your car; with the complimentary shuttle service operating during winter, and 2,500 car park spaces in the village, plus on-site parking at most of the village lodges and at all properties managed by ThredboskiAccommodation, getting round the village is easy.
ThredboskiAccommodation offers a variety of self-contained accommodation in apartments in the central village, on the Crackenback Ridge, and in Woodridge. Whether you come with a group of friends, on a honeymoon, or as a family, Thredbo Village gives you a memorable winter experience.
