Thredbo is easily one of Australia’s top alpine ski resorts, with eager skiers, snowboarders and tobogganers flying down its surrounding runs (including Australia’s longest in the ski season!).

Thredbo Snow

Not only is Thredbo an awesome place to get on the slopes, but it’s also an exciting village with plenty of stylish accommodation, fun nightlife and quality shopping.

The best months to head to Thredbo are July and August, when the slopes experience a higher amount of snowfall. Snow days reach highs in these months, but there is also some snow on the shoulder months of June and September.

Naturally, the runs may be a little busier in July and August, so it’s up to you if you want more snow or fewer crowds.

So, now that we’ve got snow months out of the way, let’s take a closer look at some of the things (and not just ski sports) that makes Thredbo such a legendary winter wonderland!

We’ll start with the slopes

Yes, this is easily the main winter drawcard to the mountains, with skiers and snowboarders from across the world flocking to the mountain to enjoy its world rivalling powder. There are around three snow days each week on Thredbo in peak months, making it a fantastic place to wake up and head up those slopes.

Activities in abundance at Thredbo Leisure Centre

Thredbo Leisure Centre is a place that epitomises stylish ski resorts, with plenty of health, fun and wellness activities to keep you going before and after ski. Including everything from a lap pool to yoga classes, inflatable obstacle course and bouldering wall, the Thredbo Leisure Centre is perfect for exercising and resting in between ski sessions!

Scenic chairlift rides

Skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing aren’t for everyone, but a lot of people still enjoy the gorgeous blanket of the Australian snow. And what better way to take in all that magnificent expanse than via a scenic chairlift ride? Naturally, Thredbo has one of the best in all of Australia’s ski fields, providing an amazing way to view Thredbo’s towering peaks.

Trampolining at the leisure centre

Many of Australia’s top skiers and snowboarders train at the Thredbo Leisure Centre, so it’s only natural that there are trampolining facilities to help these Olympians train and stay slope fit! Luckily, the public has access to these facilities, too, just be sure to book in advance and try out this awesome, adrenaline-pumping activity.
