Thredbo, located within the Kosciuszko National Park, boasts some of Australia’s highest mountains between 1365m to 1930m above sea level. Thredbo was originally used by graziers when, in 1955, Tony Sponar had a great vision to transform the mountains into a ski hill. Sponar had been a ski instructor at the renowned St. Anton resort in Austria from 1941 to 1948 and saw Thredbo as the Australian equivalent, with good vertical terrain and buzzing ski village atmosphere.
