We recommend checking the weather beforehand and pack for all weather conditions.

As we will be travelling throughout the day temperatures vary, using a layering system is recommended with many light layers, especially on your upper body. As this is a long walk in a remote location, being prepared is essential including full wet weather gear.

  • Waterproof/wind stopper jacket, rain pants
  • A warm layer, fleece or wool
  • Minimum 2L of water per person
  • Hat, sunscreen and sunglasses
  • Enclosed walking shoes, preferably boots with good socks
  • Lunch and snacks
  • Gloves and a warm hat
  • Camera
  • Any medication that might be needed (eg. Ventolin)

It’s important to let your guide know if you have any pre-existing medical conditions (such as motion sickness, fear of heights, heart conditions, pregnancy, asthma and musculoskeletal issues) prior to the walk. This will help us cater the walk to your needs and make your trip more enjoyable.

Thredbo Guided Hikes reserves the right to cancel a hike at any time.

This may be due to but not limited to any of the following:

  • Lightning
  • Winds over 70km/hour
  • Extreme weather conditions: fire, rain, hail or snow
  • Poor air quality
  • Medical incident

In the event that a hike is cancelled prior to the commencement date, a full refund will be issued. No refund will be issued if the hike is cancelled or the goal of the hike is not met during the activity.

We encourage guests to Leave No Trace and observe the Hiking Responsibility Code:

  • Pack a reusable water bottle – our guides will point out the refill station at the bottom of the chairlifts
  • Dispose of all waste properly – no bins are located on hiking trails; all waste is to be disposed in appropriate locations across Thredbo Village
  • Travel on durable surfaces – remain on designated walking tracks or travel on surfaces which can tolerate trampling. Much of the alpine ecosystem is fragile and cannot recover from trampling
  • Leave what you find – do not pick or remove anything natural
  • Respect wildlife – appreciate wildlife through quiet and observation from afar
  • Be considerate of hosts and other visitors – remain on left hand side of hiking trails to allow for 2-way traffic and others to pass. Do not play music aloud when hiking.
