Some say that Perisher is the place for serious skiers and Thredbo’s the place to party. But your Thredbo skiing holiday doesn’t have to be all heated-poolside cider-sipping — you can rip it up on the slopes too. In fact, when the mountain is fully covered in snow, Thredbo Ski Resort has the longest ski run in the country with the highest lift point at 2,037 metres. Smack bang in the middle of Sydney and Melbourne and closer still to Canberra, it’s no wonder Thredbo has over 700,000 visitors each year.
Off the slopes though, it’s Thredbo’s famous nightlife that continues to impress. Thredbo Resort has a sweet village feel and is totally pedestrian friendly. For a night out, hit the Rekordolig Bar where you can take a dip in the heated pool or, if you’d prefer a Euro-style venue with schnapps and accordion players, head to The Knickerbocker Bar and Restaurant. Student Flights can help get you to Thredbo with one of our ski holiday packages.
Open from June to September, Thredbo has over 50 runs for all levels as well as snowmaking and night skiing. The longest run is from Karel’s T-bar to Friday Flat, which spans a total of 5.9 kilometres but is made up of a few trails. The longest single run is the Crackenback Supertrail. If you’re a pro, you should check out the Funnel Web, an un-groomed ski trail known for its moguls and near vertical middle section. Holy black run Batman! Overall, Thredbo Ski Resort has the steepest terrain of any ski resort in Australia as well as some fully sick terrain parks too, complete with jumps, rails and wall rides.

When it comes to resting your head for the night, you can stay in the village or close by at Jindabyne as both options offer a range of accommodation for all kinds of budgets. The other awesome thing about Thredbo is its sweet range of accommodation in the village. Whether you fancy backpackers, apartments, B&Bs, lodges, chalets or hotels, there’s a Thredbo accommodation option for you. Interested in bagging a bargain?
