LEGO® Friends Snow Festival

Saturday 1 - Saturday 15 Jul, 2017

School holidays are the most exciting thing about being a kid, we can agree on that, but for some parents the idea of school holidays can be slightly daunting and that’s why here at Thredbo we’ve turned school holidays into snow holidays, with two weeks jam packed full of activities and events for both kids and parents to enjoy.

Thredbo has teamed up with LEGO this winter to host the LEGO® Friends Snow Festival during the July school holidays. To celebrate the new LEGO Friends Snow Resort Range, kids and families can take part in loads of LEGO Friends activity. From life size LEGO Snow Models to an exciting LEGO Friends Play Zone, it’s a must see during the festival

Families can also join a new type of treasure hunt this winter, with on-mountain hidden LEGO treasures to be found…skiing just got a whole lot more fun! Hit the slopes and keep your eyes open for LEGO models hidden on the mountain.

Enjoy a school holiday with a difference…not only can we provide kids with more than one good excuse to ditch the classroom, but it’s the perfect time for parents to ditch the stress of the city too. Less people, more activities, fresh air and a time to get the kids off their screens and plugged into the amazing outdoor conditions that Thredbo has to offer.
