An iconic Thredbo tradition that is not to be missed! Flare Runs have been taking place in Thredbo for many years and continue to bring the mountain to life after dark. Always finished with a massive firework show, this weekly highlight will light up the whole village.
Kids Flare Run
Every Thursday in winter as the sun sets, the kids are loaded onto the Easy Does It Chairlift (no adults, kids are accompanied by snow sport instructors) ready to descend the gentle slopes with their own twinkling, flashing LED flares. Once all the kids have reached the bottom the fireworks spectacular lights up the sky.
Where: Meet at the Easy Does It chairlift
Time: On dusk
Age: 3 – 14 years
Flares: Lights are available for purchase from the stall out the front of the bistro.
– You can purchase kids flares (lights) from Thredbo Retail store at Friday Flat
– Kids will not require any ski poles
– Kids only – adults can watch from the bottom

While the Kids Flare Run is free, you must have a valid lift pass for that day.
Adults Flare Run
An iconic Thredbo moment for over 30 years. Every Saturday night in winter our team of expert skiers and snowboarders wind their way down the Supertrail with flaming flares. Watching this spectacular event is the perfect way to kick off a magical Saturday night in Thredbo with family and friends.
