Thredbo is not only one of Australia's best-known ski resorts, it is also the highest. The highest lift in the "Snowies" leads to an altitude of 2,037 metres. Another superlative awaiting skiers and snowboarders are the so-called "Big 5", Australia's five longest pistes. Each of these pistes is over 3 km long. In addition, they correspond to different levels of difficulty, so that beginners, advanced skiers as well as real professionals will find the right Big 5 slope for themselves. 

Beginners mainly use the Friday Flat downhill run. It has a gradient of only 12 degrees and is therefore perfect for mastering the first turns. For advanced skiers, Thredbo has by far the widest range of suitable slopes. The wide, green marked downhill runs of the Cruiser Area are also covered with artificial snow, so that nothing stands in the way of your skiing pleasure even when there is little snowfall.

The longest and steepest area in Thredbo is available for real sporty skiers. Especially freeriders get their money's worth here, as Thredbo has the best off-piste area in the southern hemisphere.

Snowboarders and freestylers can let off steam in four different snow parks in Thredbo: For small freestylers the Wombat World - Kids Park is the right area. Situated on the Friday Flat beginners slope, it offers smaller obstacles that are suitable for learning freestyle moves. Beginners are in good hands at Cruiser Park in the Cruiser Area. Absolute beginners as well as slightly advanced players will find less demanding boxes and jumps here. Advanced park riders can also use the Thredbo Super Park, located on the lower half of The Supertrail, Australia's longest downhill run.

When the snow is good, Thredbo is the best place to board in NSW without a doubt. Long runs, good powder stashes and some really good off piste if your keen to get off the runs. If your in OZ in ...
