That’s A Wrap! Thredbo Resort Celebrates The End Of An Incredible Winter Snow Season
Thredbo Resort is officially closing to skiers and snowboarders today, celebrating the end of an incredibly successful winter season.
With the mountain closing to skiers and snowboarders today, Thredbo Resort is reflecting upon what has been one of the biggest and best winter snow seasons to date.
Thredbo General Manager, Stuart Diver said that it’s been incredible to see the resort have such a strong winter season.
“I am so proud of the community and what we have achieved this winter. From the many guests who came to visit our beautiful mountain to all of our amazing staff, we thank everyone involved in helping to make this season one of our best,” said Mr Diver.
Officially opened to skiers and snowboarders on June 11, this winter saw Thredbo experience one of its best ever starts to the snow season following a massive 125cm snowfall in the lead-up.
The snow conditions were consistent from the start, with regular snowfall top-ups and enhanced snowmaking capabilities keeping the snowpack in great shape throughout June and July. Mother Nature took it up a notch in August with world-class powder days and snowfall down to the village, ensuring there was a strong base when September arrived.
Snowy Hydro’s snow depth reports were a testament to the strong snow conditions with Spencers Creek recording 232cm on September 20, it’s highest September snow depth since 2017.
In addition to Australia’s best skiing and snowboarding, Thredbo is proud of the exceptional customer experience it delivered, hosting its biggest ever calendar of events and a series of unique on-mountain experiences.
From the hugely popular First Base events presented by Canadian Club to Heineken Saturdays and countless events in between, the live music and entertainment line-up was non-stop. After a big day on the slopes, record numbers of guests enjoyed dancing underneath the fireworks to some of the country’s hottest acts including The Jungle Giants, Stace Cadet, Set Mo, Daft Punk Tribute and Poof Doof.
On-snow events were also back in a big way this winter with competitions for every discipline, age and ability. Torah Bright’s Mini Shred proved to be a big hit among the kids, high-energy snowboarding was on display at the first-ever Bush Doof presented by Monster Energy and incredible skill and speed were showcased at the Snow Series events.
The resort’s premier on-mountain experiences were in high demand again this year, offering a series of unique adventures that elevated a Thredbo visit to new heights. From iconic Sunrise Sessions presented by Land Rover to unique on-mountain dining experiences, Thredbo continued to take the word exclusive to the next level.
Finishing the season on a high note, Thredbo hosted its famous closing celebrations on Sunday, with skiers and snowboarders dressing up and taking to the water at the Thredbo Pondskim before enjoying a Hawaiian-themed Spring Fling event.
As Australia’s premier year-round adventure destination, Thredbo is now focused on its upcoming summer season of mountain biking and hiking. Kicking off on November 19, Thredbo is excited to welcome guests to enjoy the ultimate summer escape.
