Thredbo Ski Resort Review

Thredbo Ski Resort Logo

Thredbo's mountain is impressive. There are 40 trails and 14 lifts, which include three high-speed quads. On the lower slopes, runs like High Noon Supertrail, Dream Run and the Crackenback Supertrail cut through the snow gum forest.

There is a considerable amount of skiing and boarding in the desolate area dotted with rocks above the tree line. Here T-bars, less likely to be closed by strong winds, rule the slopes.

With slopes as high as 2,000m (6,562ft), the resort claims the longest run in the country almost 7km (4 miles) from Karels t-bar to Friday Flat.
