Thredbo’s new favourite ride is not only fast and comfortable, it also uses innovative green technology! Merritts Gondola is driven by an industry leading Direct Drive electric motor system, making the Gondola super quiet and more efficient than a conventional Gondola.
New Organics Recycling Machine
Thredbo’s new Closed Loop organics recycling machine has doubled our capacity in food waste recycling, allowing us to increase the number of restaurants, lodges and apartments in Thredbo taking part. Food waste recycling helps reduce the volume of waste being sent to landfill and creates a usable compost product that puts nutrients back into the soil.
Thredbo Alpine Hotel Plastic Reduction Plan
Thredbo is focused on removing all single use plastic products. Phase one has seen the removal of front of house single use plastic items including replacing plastic straws with paper and the introduction of certified compostable and sustainable sugar cane pulp food packaging. Phase two will see plastic free alternatives for back of house products and the introduction of sustainable alternatives throughout Thredbo Resort.
SNOWsat snow depth technology
Thredbo has invested in new SNOWsat technology to more accurately map snow depth across the resort. This means that snow grooming and snow making is more efficient, saving fuel and energy as well as enhancing your riding experience.
