Thredbo is unique in that it is open 365 days a year with regular links from Sydney & Canberra via coach, car and air. The resort is one of the largest with around 480 hectares of riding terrain available to skiers with the longest run stretching to 5.9 kilometres. The resort has a reputation for long runs, a variety of terrain parks, being the winter playground for celebrities and heaps of off-piste events and activities.
The resort is leading the Australia market with the move to lift tickets using RFID to make moving through the gates quicker and easier. Typically a day ticket will cost around $107 but a number of early season and discounted multi-day passes will make it even cheaper.
