Thredbo is Australia’s Best Snow Resort, taking out the prestigious award from the World Ski Awards for three years running. The mountain boasts almost double the vertical of any other Australian mountain and has the longest run at a thigh burning 5.9km. While the mountain is a playground for snow lovers, the vibrant village located right at the bottom looks after the social, family and party scene.
At Thredbo you'll find plenty of activities to keep the non-skiers in your group entertained. Bar and restaurant hop around the village, take in the fireworks and flare run every Saturday night or step into some snowshoes and explore.
Thredbo has a diverse range of accommodation options – cosy lodges, hotels, self-contained apartments and luxurious chalets. All Thredbo accomodation is within walking ditance of either the mountain base or free shuttle bus. If you're looking to keep to a strict budget another alternative is to stay in the nearby town Jindabyne, located a 35 minute drive from Thredbo.
This winter season, Thredbo is introducing Australia's first alpine gondola! The new 8 person, high speed Merritts Gondola will quadruple previous chairlifts capacity to 2,000 people per hour. This means less wait times, and warmer uploads.

The roads are clear for most of the year, but when the big snowfalls hit, chains may be required for 2 wheel drives. Chains can be hired in Jindabyne and Khancoban. When hiring they will need to know your tyre size and be sure to ask them about any fitting tips.
