MyThredbo Card Kiosks

Renting your equipment?

For guests opting for the on-snow convenience of renting ski or snowboard equipment from Thredbo Rental, we recommend arriving with enough time to collect your rental gear.

Even better, collect your rental equipment the day before you hit the slopes. Rental equipment can be collected after 3pm the day prior.
