2023 World Ski Awards: Australia’s Best Ski ResortWe have been awarded ‘Australia’s Best Ski Resort’ for the seventh consecutive year at the 2023 World Ski Awards. The most prestigious awards program in the ski tourism industry, the World Ski Awards is the only global initiative to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence in ski tourism globally. Despite variable snow conditions this winter, this win reflects the world-class customer experience that we consistently delivered through our unique on-mountain experiences, the country’s biggest winter events calendar and Australia’s best skiing and snowboarding.

Environmental Recognition And Awards

Alongside our winter wins, we take pride in our long list of environmental initiatives and embrace the opportunity to lead the industry and community towards a more sustainable future, today.

EarthCheck Gold Certification 

Our focus on environment and sustainability has resulted in Thredbo being the first Australian snow resort to receive EarthCheck Gold certification in 2023 for the third year running. EarthCheck is the world’s leading environmental certification and benchmarking program for the travel and tourism industry. The internationally-recognised certification positions Thredbo a leader of sustainable alpine tourism destinations worldwide.

Sustainable Tourism AwardAs the only ski resort to be nominated, we’re proud to be one of four finalists for the Sustainable Tourism Award at the 2023 Banksia Foundation NSW Sustainability Awards supported by the NSW Government. A celebration of sustainability and ingenuity, these awards recognise NSW individuals, communities, businesses and government for their innovation and excellence in environmental and social stewardship. Thredbo looks forward to celebrating the sustainability achievements of those who are working towards a more sustainable future for NSW at the Awards Ceremony in December.

Looking ForwardContinually improving our offering, we are currently making even more resort-wide developments with construction now well and truly underway for our new year-round Alpine Coaster that will be ready to ride for winter 2024, as well as continuing to rollout our 10-year chairlift replacement plan to update and improve existing infrastructure.

In addition to current developments, we recently lodged a development application (DA) with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment for a new accommodation sub-division for the Thredbo Golf Course. This submission has carefully considered the NSW Government’s objectives to boost activity in the region whilst respecting and preserving the unique Alpine environment. As Australia’s Best Ski Resort for the past seven years, this development aims to continue delivering experiences that support this position.

Thredbo sits on the traditional land of the Monero – Ngarigo people who have looked after this land, water and community for over 60,000 years. We thank them for all they have done and continue to do to look after their country, a special place which we all love and respect.
