Skiing, snowboarding, après and mountain air…kick off the snow season in style at the Winter 2021 Opening Weekend.
We’re celebrating all weekend long, on and off the mountain! Hit the slopes and join in on a stack of events including dining, live entertainment, kids’ activities and more. More details coming soon…
World famous ice sculpture Kenji is back to create some winter magic. He will be carving out beautiful designs in the village square on Saturday from 1pm.
Kenji is known for producing traditional hand-made ice sculptures and has previously sculpted many beautiful pieces for past opening weekends.
Under the cover of darkness Thredbo will come to life! A series of light projections are to be cast over areas of the mountain for spectacular views from the village.
Live music is back for 2021 and what better way to kick off the season then a boogie with friends! A range of venues across the mountain will play host to a variety of artists.
Thredbo favourite Mark Travers will be playing all the classic hits to open the season on Friday night in the Lounge Bar, followed by a classic pub set in the Schuss Bar on Saturday evening.
Everybody’s favourite venue is back in action as Alpine Après presented by Heineken turns it up a notch. DJ Scott Bruce takes the stage at the Alpine Bar from 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Take a ride up the Gondola and enjoy a Corona Sunsets party on the Merritts Deck. DJ Dom Furber will be providing the vibes from 2pm-4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Catch an array of fabulous street performers roaming around the village all weekend. From Clowns to Bogong Moths and Butterflies on stilts, there’s something to keep everyone entertained.
Opening the season with a BANG! Everyone loves a fireworks display, and boy do we have a big one planned for Saturday night. Look to the stars at 6pm.
G.H. Mumm Long Lunch
It wouldn’t be opening weekend without the annual G.H. Mumm Long Lunch in the Village Square. The crowd favourite will take place on Sunday with bubbles and a curated menu. Mark Travers will be singing tunes live to get the vibes going!
