Posted on 9 Jun, 2024 in On the Slopes

Our Winter 2024 Opening Weekend was all about getting the good times started!

Check out all of the ways we celebrated the start of the season…

On Saturday morning, excitement was high for first rides on the brand-new Thredbo Alpine Coaster!

13-year-old William Thompson had been lining up for 3 hours to be first in line, winning himself VIP status with free rides all day.

There was a huge lineup of free activities for families all weekend including face painting, arts & crafts, a magician, s’mores making, giant games, Thredboland animal visits and more.

Creative juices were flowing in the village too with famous ice sculptor Kenji carving up a magical creation and artist Grassi live painting an artwork of the mountain to be auctioned off for charity.

We had Freddie’s Snow Runner and Wombats Snow Runner operating all weekend for beginner skiers and snowboarders to nail their first turns.
