Thredbo Opening Weekend A Big Success

November 25, 2020 Oceania News No Comments

Thredbo was buzzing for its opening weekend with guests from all over the country excited to get out into the great outdoors this summer.

The resort officially opened for hiking and mountain biking on Saturday and sold out of day passes for the entire weekend.

“Opening weekend was a huge success with people from all over the country travelling here to explore our mountain bike trails and take a hike in the Snowy Mountains. Everyone I spoke to was so happy to get out into nature with the family and take advantage of the incredible attractions we have on offer in our own backyard,” said Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver.

Thredbo offers Australia’s only summer long chairlift access with 34-kilometres of mountain bike trails to explore. Mr Diver said this year was a particularly exciting time for the resort with Thredbo Mountain Bike Park celebrating 30 Years of Gravity.

“We’re so pleased to celebrate three decades of mountain biking here in Thredbo. Each year the sport continues to grow and we see more and more people coming here to ride for the first time. It’s wonderful to see people of all ages and abilities learning how to mountain bike and even better seeing the satisfaction on their faces when they progress to more challenging trails,” Mr Diver said.

Thredbo Mountain Bike Business Manager Tim Windshuttle said the mountain operations team had been working hard to get everything ready to go for a jam-packed summer of riding with a whole range of upgrades this season.

“This year we’ve got more jumps and features to hit in the Valley Terminal Park and Little Beauty Jumps Park. The Gunbarrel Express chair will be open more often including every weekend and throughout school holidays plus we’re offering MTB School Holiday Camps and an MTB Development Squad for the first time,” Mr Windshuttle said.

Hiking attracts thousands of outdoor lovers to Thredbo each season and the resort anticipates that this year the activity will be even more popular with guests keen to get out into wide open spaces.

Thredbo offers a unique opportunity to hike Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko. The bucket list hike is suitable for all ages and abilities and takes between 4-6 hours.

The resort is continuing to operate under its COVID-19 operating plan developed under the advice of the NSW Department of Health. The plan includes a range of social distancing, hygiene and sanitisation measures across all resort operations.

Thredbo is within a 3-hour drive from Canberra and a 6-hour drive from Sydney.
