Thredbo Wins Australia’s Best Ski Resort

November 27, 2020 Accolades No Comments

Thredbo has been crowned Australia’s best ski resort at the World Ski Awards for the fourth consecutive year.The World Ski Awards is a global initiative that celebrates excellence in ski tourism and every year attracts votes from hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers across the globe.

Thredbo took out the Best Ski Resort (Australia) category at a prestigious ceremony held last night at A-ROSA Kitzbuhel, Austria, overlooking the iconic Hahnenkamm.

Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver said the accolade was testament to the hard work of hundreds of staff members across resort operations, the spirit of the local community and the support of the thousands of visitors welcomed to Thredbo each year.

“We’re proud to be Australia’s Best Ski Resort for four years running and to win this title in a challenging year makes it even more special. We’re grateful for the ongoing support of our community and the many visitors who choose to ski at Thredbo each year.”

This year was a unique winter season for resorts with Thredbo operating under a revised COVID-19 operating plan developed under the advice of the NSW Department of Health. The plan included a range of social distancing, hygiene and sanitisation measures.

“We feel fortunate to have delivered a safe winter season in 2020 and to have been able to have seen so many smiling faces enjoying the fresh mountain air and the world-class skiing and snowboarding that we have on offer here. Winning this award is the icing on the cake,” said Diver.

This year Thredbo launched the Merritts Gondola, Australia’s only alpine gondola after two years of planning. The multi-million-dollar development revolutionised travel on the mountain with the high-speed gondola transporting guests up to the Merritts area in only 6 minutes via comfortable European-style cabins that fit up to 8 people.

“The gondola has been a game changer and the reaction from the community was better than I could have imagined. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. It’s completely changed the flow of guests around the mountain giving riders and scenic passengers easy access to the Merritts Mountain House as well as the Friday Flat beginners area. Everyone loves it.”

Thredbo also impressed guests with its wide range of trails for all abilities, world-class ski school and family-friendly dedicated beginners’ area. Boasting the longest run in the country, skiers and snowboarders enjoyed carving turns down the iconic Supertrail as well as access to the highest lifted point in Australia at 2037 metres elevation. For the ultimate bucket list experience adventurers could even tour to the highest summit in the country, Mt Kosciuszko, on Thredbo’s Backcountry Tours.

Off the mountain, Thredbo entertained guests with weekly fireworks shows and exceptional food and wine at an array of restaurants and bars in the Austrian-inspired alpine village.

Thredbo was recently also crowned Australia’s Best Family Ski Resort for 2020 in the Ski & Snowboard with Kids Awards.

Australia’s premier year-round adventure destination is now gearing up for its summer season with mountain biking and hiking officially launching 21 November.
