More Family Fun! Check Out What’s On For Families These School Holidays

Posted on 25 Jun, 2024 in On the Slopes

There’s a reason we’ve been voted Australia’s Best Ski Resort For Families for six years running! During school holidays, we turn the mountain into the ultimate winter playground where families make special memories for a lifetime.

We’ve made our family offering even bigger and better this winter!

Keep scrolling to check out everything we’ve got planned these school holidays…

New This Winter | Thredbo Alpine Coaster Rides!
First rides are on these school holidays! Get ready for a thrilling new way to experience the mountain with the Southern Hemisphere’s first-ever Alpine Coaster. At 1.5km in length,  you can control your speed of up to 40km/h while travelling along a mix of uphill and downhill tracks featuring a tunnel, bridges and circles that traverse the stunning alpine environment.

To ride the Alpine Coaster on their own, children must be 8 years of age or older and over 135 cm tall. For kids aged 3 to 8, they can double up with a responsible person over 15 years.
