What’s On For Families This Winter?
Skiing and Snowboarding
Thredbo is the ultimate skiing and snowboarding destination for all ages and abilities. Beginners will love Friday Flat, a fun and safe environment designed for skill progression. Intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders will have fun exploring the wide variety of terrain including Australia’s longest ski runs. Availability is limited during school holiday periods so guests are encouraged to plan their visit in advance.
Ski And Snowboard Programs
With Thredboland for the little ones (3 – 6-year-olds), Adventure Camps for mini-shredders aged 5 – 12 and Freeriders for kids under 14, Thredbo offers a skiing and snowboarding program to suit every child. Led by an outstanding team of instructors, these programs are the best possible opportunity for children to build their skills and confidence while having fun. When they’re not ripping up the trails, kids can enjoy a special menu of children’s meals plus a schedule of fun activities with their ski buddies.
Saturday Night Flare Run & Fireworks Spectacular
Gather your friends and family to watch Thredbo’s iconic Flare Run and Fireworks Spectacular. An iconic Thredbo experience for over 30 years, watch our expert skiers and snowboarders wind their way down Supertrail with flares before the sky comes to life with fireworks that dance across the mountain. Held every Saturday night during winter (weather dependent), the Flare Run and Fireworks Spectacular is a magical way to finish a great day in Thredbo.
Thredbo Kids Snow Festivals
Kids run the mountain during the July and September school holidays with Thredbo’s Kids Snow Festivals. Featuring a specially curated line-up of family-friendly activities plus lots of après for mum and dad, families can enjoy movie and pizza nights, special kid’s flare runs, fireworks and loads more activities on and off the mountain.
The action is non-stop on the mountain for little shredders, with a number of events that kids can get involved with including a brand new skiing, snowboarding and workshopping event, Project Shred powered by the Chumpy Pullin Foundation and a number of new race competitions including Thredbo Triple Crown and Battle of The Bluff as well as the return of some classic events.
