COVID-19 | Your Thredbo Questions Answered

Winter 2021 Season

The official snow season is planned from 12 June until 4 October 2021. As usual our season opening date is dependent on conditions.

We can’t wait to welcome our guests back to Thredbo for what is set to be an amazing winter season.

Day passes, rental and lessons are now available for purchase. This winter we offered a limited number of season passes available and they have now sold out.

To ensure we can deliver a world-class snow experience for all guests, on and off the mountain, and in line with NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions we will operate with capacity limits this season. We will continue to monitor this throughout the season.

For more information on our winter season, see our “Planning for this winter” and “Season Pass Holder information” sections below.

Planning for Winter 2021

We are committed to continuing to operate under our COVID-19 Operating Plan. We are currently finalising our winter operating plan under the guidance of the NSW Department of Health to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our people, guests and community.

  • Best practice COVID-19 hygiene and sanitisation measures.
  • Indoor venues will be operating in accordance with Government mandated social distancing restrictions.
  • Events. We have an exciting calendar of new and unique experiences available that are able to be safely delivered within the COVID-19 restrictions, plus some of our favourites back on the 2021 event calendar.

 

To ensure a safe experience for all guests, we will operate in accordance with the NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions, and will continue to monitor this throughout the season.

The team at Thredbo are very experienced in delivering a COVID-safe capacity limited season, having delivered a successful 2020 Winter and Summer season. We continue to remain committed to provide our guests the very best experience under this new way of operating.

The team at Thredbo are very experienced in delivering a COVID-safe capacity limited season, having delivered a successful 2020 Winter and Summer season. We continue to remain committed to providing our guests the very best experience under this new way of operating.

While we do have capacity restrictions in place, we are operating in a changing environment. As of today, we expect to operate the 2021 winter season at a level that is between last year’s capacity restrictions and a normal operating season, dependent on snow conditions.

There will be some multi-day discounted 3+ day lift passes during the season, and we will have multi-day discounted lift passes available for guests visiting during the June and September value seasons.

Multi-day discounted passes will be available from 6 April when day passes go on sale.

Guest can only purchase the date range that is available during the staggered release. For example, the Online Shop won’t allow a 7-day lift pass, rental and/or lessons purchase starting 24 June. Guests can either:

  1. purchase the first dates in the first release and the second dates in the second release; or
  2. wait for the two date ranges to be open to secure the full duration of their date range, depending on availability.

Guests can either:

  1. purchase the first dates in the first release and the second dates in the second release, noting they won’t be able to secure the multiday discount; or
  2. wait for all dates to be available and then purchase the whole date range, depending on availability. In this case, the multiday discount is able to be applied.

If there is only very limited terrain open (for example, Friday Flat only or no runs open), Thredbo will adjust the price accordingly and provide a MyMoney for any difference on pre-purchased passes, rental and/or lessons.

We will always try to assist guests who have pre-booked accommodation in the resort however we cannot guarantee day pass availability.

We are planning to offer a great range of ski and snowboard lessons and programs for all ages, including:

  • Adult Group & Private Lessons
  • Kids Group & Private Lessons
  • Adventure Camps
  • Freerider Lessons (7 – 14 year olds)
  • Thredboland Lessons (3 – 6 year olds): Limited availability to allow for social distancing in the indoor Thredboland venue
  • Burton Riglets – Snowboarding Lessons (5 to 6 Years)
  • Children’s Seasonal Programs

Thredbo Snow Sports is planning to offer children’s seasonal programs including Development Squad, Shred Crew and Little Rippers. Our Mountain Academy programs will be delivered in disciplines where suitably skilled coaches are available.

Thredbo is bringing back an exciting calendar of events in 2021 that are able to be safely delivered within the COVID-19 restrictions.

2021 will see us launch a range of more intimate on-mountain experiences designed to offer our guests amazing experiences in a COVID-safe way. For example:

  • Sunrise Sessions where guests take in sunrise at Australia’s Highest Lifted Point, enjoy breakfast at Australia’s Highest Restaurant and are the first to track down Supertrail, Australia’s longest run.
  • Merritts Mountain Haus Feast where guests can ride under the stars in Australia’s Only Alpine Gondola to Merritts Mountain House to enjoy a Bavarian-inspired feast! The ride down is an unforgettable one with views of the Thredbo Village lights below.
  • Merritts Mountain Haus Feast & Snowcat Experience which includes a Snowcat Tour across the mountain to Kareela Hutte where they will have the best vantage point for the iconic Saturday Fireworks Spectacular and Flare Run followed by dinner at Merritts Mountain House.
  • Kareela Snowcat Dinners where guests can travel in style in Thredbo’s passenger snowcat to the iconic Kareela Hutte on-mountain restaurant for a 4-course dinner and wine experience overlooking the lights of Thredbo Village below. A true premium experience that will take your Thredbo visit to the next level.
