The “DEFENDER” Storm Wrap | 85cm of Fresh Snow

Posted on 14 Jul, 2020

What an incredible three days! With a storm total of 85cm and a mountain left blanketed in snow, the “DEFENDER” storm definitely brought the goods.

You could feel the excitement build on Sunday as fat flakes began to fall from late morning. Snowgoers were all smiles as the snow just kept getting heavier and the wintery change set in with the promise of a pow day to come.

Winter wonderland

The entire mountain woke up on Monday to a huge day of freshies with 30cm of snow up top and 15cm in the Village falling overnight.

The “DEFENDER” turned on the winter stoke as skiers and snowboarders took on the fresh pow on High Noon, the Cruiser area and…Supertrail! Thredbo’s iconic Supertrail made its awesome season debut with steep and deep turns available from early afternoon once the Mountain Operations team had completed their preparations. Monday just kept on giving with fresh tracks resetting all day and a storm total of 65cms by the afternoon.

This morning dawned to a winter wonderland as the “DEFENDER” wrapped things up in the early morning with a massive storm total of 85cm. On top of fresh turns, the “DEFENDER” storm has opened up the mountain with heaps of terrain set to open over the coming days.

Wax your boards and tune your skis, Antons T-Bar is opening mid-morning tomorrow and we’re anticipating opening Basin T-Bar on Thursday!
