Southern Hemisphere’s first Alpine Coaster Coming to Thredbo in Winter 2024!  


EVT’s Thredbo Resort has announced that construction is underway for the Southern Hemisphere's first-ever year-round Alpine Coaster, set to open in winter this year. The new Thredbo Alpine Coaster will diversify the resort's year-round recreational offering as an all-weather, action-packed way to experience the mountain.

At 1.5km in length, from thrill-seekers to leisure cruisers, passengers will be able to control their speed of up to 40km/h as they travel along a mix of uphill and downhill tracks featuring a tunnel, bridges and circles that traverse the alpine environment. 

Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver said this development is in alignment with the resort's focus on providing a premium guest experience and EVT’s overarching strategic focus to create experiences that escape the ordinary.

“The Alpine Coaster is set to add a new dimension to every guest's visit. It will be a hugely exciting on-snow experience in winter, and it will build upon our wide range of outdoor adventures in summer as a drawcard for new tourists to the village in the shoulder seasons. This new development is a testament to Thredbo’s commitment to provide a premium experience for our guests 365 days a year," said Mr Diver.

Construction commenced in October last year, and there has been considerable progress with the bulk civil excavation works and concreting now complete, and the track installation currently in progress. As part of the construction, the Alpine Coaster will undergo safety testing by independent third-party engineers in the later part of Autumn, ready for the first customers in winter this year.
