2011 BEST AUSTRALIAN SKI RESORT: Thredbo, NSW - Luxury Travel Magazine

Thredbo Resort

Address: Friday Drive, Thredbo, NSW

Thredbo is a buzzing alpine resort, perched in an unspoilt valley in the heart of Kosciuszko National Park. Blessed by nature, it is nestled between the mountain and the buzzing alpine village, with the crisp waters of the Thredbo River meandering through its centre.

Whether you are hitting the slopes or taking in the sights, Thredbo is an all encompassed snow destination. It’s for everyone - skiers, snowboarders, sightseers, snowballers or snowman builders.

Home to Australia’s highest lifted point and longest run, Thredbo offers a playground of over 480 hectares of snow riding to explore, with trails to suit every level. From beginners taking their first slides on Friday Flat to those schussing down the Supertrail or blasting through the powder on Central Spur, there is something to excite everyone.

Just a stone’s throw away is the well-known Thredbo Village. There is something special about the village - it has that crisp wintery charm with a cosy alpine feel. Easy to get around, it’s full of your everyday conveniences, holiday luxuries and bustling with friendly locals.

Once the sun sets, Thredbo’s lively après scene comes to life. There are bars peppered throughout the village so you are sure to find a favourite. While you may think après is all about dancing in your ski boots and drinking gluhwein, it is whatever you want it to be – snuggle up at a quiet bar, relax with buddies around a fire or kick on till late in the Keller night club.

Thredbo’s accommodation options are as many and as varied as the runs on the mountain, offering a selection of cosy lodges, self-contained apartments, luxurious chalets and the renowned Thredbo Alpine Hotel.

As night falls, Thredbo’s nocturnal mountain team jump into action. Boasting world-class snowmaking technology, our snow guns fire up through the night, blanketing snow across the mountain trails. Our snow groomers then get to work to smooth the surface to perfection, giving it that pristine, easy to ride corduroy effect, awaiting your first turn of the new day.

In addition to the snow sports selection, Thredbo also has a big variety of other things to keep you entertained - it’s hard to believe it is not all about the snow.
