With snow still falling and more in the forecast, Thredbo Resort has received over 125cm of fresh snow in the past seven days, setting the scene for the best start to the season in over 20 years.
Thredbo Resort is looking picture perfect with 125cm of fresh snow blanketing the resort over the past seven days. With the official opening of the snow season this Saturday 11 June, the resort is primed for the best start to the snow season in over 20 years.
Stuart Diver, Thredbo Resort General Manager said “In my many years living and working in Thredbo, I have never seen the Village so covered in snow ahead of the June long weekend.”
“The entire Thredbo community is really excited to see such a strong start to Winter 2022. It’s great to see such positive energy amongst our staff and community ready to welcome guests back to the mountains this weekend.”
The snowfall has allowed all major resort areas to open for this weekend. From this Saturday 11 June, Australia’s longest run Supertrail will be open for skiing and snowboarding, as well as High Noon, the Cruiser area and Friday Flat. Both sides of the mountain will be linked via the Traverse and Sundowner meaning skiers and snowboarders of all abilities will have plenty of terrain to choose from.
Delivering the biggest alpine events calendar in the country this winter, Thredbo has a range of celebrations and events planned to herald in the season ahead. Key highlights for opening weekend include a Welcome Home To Thredbo’s Winter Olympians, Illuminations & Fireworks Spectacular, Ice Carvings, Heineken Saturday ft. Set Mo at the Alpine Bar and more.
