All Systems Go With Thredbo’s Storm of the Season

August 26, 2020 Ski No Comments Email Email

The Storm of the Season that delivered over 78cm of fresh, dry snow has set Thredbo up for a super springtime of skiing and snowboarding ahead. With spring on the horizon, Thredbo has also launched its Snowshoe Tours this week, adding to the variety of Backcountry Tour options so regardless of ability, any snow lover can get out and explore all that Thredbo and the Main Range has to offer. Plus, (drumroll) Sponars T-bar is making its season debut today, setting up a springtime ahead with hollers, hoots and snow drifts galore.

While we have fresh mounds of news – firstly let’s talk SNOW! Riders are in their element with the snowpack in excellent condition, scoring light, fluffy turns. The biggest overnight fall was on Friday with 30cm, bringing the storm total more than 78cm since last Tuesday, bringing the snow depth to well in excess of a metre.

Experienced riders immediately hunted fresh tracks in The Bowl in the Cruiser area with adventure lovers shredding the powder in the Bluff and down Bushranger. Meanwhile, first-timers have been enjoying soft turns at the dedicated beginner’s area Friday Flat. No matter what your level, the week’s been a winter-y winner, and springtime ahead is sure to be equally as winning.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL

Thredbo has a blizzard of activity around the resort as we head into Spring. Here’s what you need to know as we look set for a fun September.

SNOWSHOE TOURS LAUNCH THIS WEEK!

Step out of your comfort zone into something new! We are mad snowshoe lovers, and the best news is that Snowshoe Tours are for everyone! The big draw? You get to explore the nooks and crannies of the mountain that many miss, and maybe meet some of the local inhabitants along the way.

So, how hard is it? Well, if you can walk, you can snowshoe. Your guide will point out interesting features and landmarks of the Australian Main Range as you venture into the big white yonder. And if you’re feeling fit, make the trek to the top of Mt. Kosciuszko to stand on the top of Australia. #winning

This is a great alternative to a day of downhilling or perfect is seeking soft adventure. Make sure you take your camera as the views are amazing. Tours will be running Wednesday, Friday and Saturday until the end of the season.

RIDE CENTRAL SPUR IN ALL ITS SPLENDIDNESS

With Sponars T-Bar making its season debut today, the Central Spur area is the place to be. Runs like Exhibition and Ego Alley will be shining in all their snowiest finery, opening up the mountain with views right down the spectacular Crackenback Valley.

ADULT & CHILD MAX5 LESSONS

Just recently launched! Small groups, max improvement. This does exactly what it says on the box – MAX5 lessons are out of the race gates and on the menu for those keen to dial up their skills whether that’s to go from snow plough to pow pow or fine tune technical turns.

The biggest bonus is serious one on one attention with the small group sizes meaning accelerated learning and shred-tastic value. All lessons are delivered with social distancing and follow the Government’s latest advice. Lessons are $85 and run daily at 11.30am and 2.00pm.

If MAX5 is 4 too many, you can also take a Private Lesson Adult or Child, which can include up to 3 participants from the same household.

BACKCOUNTRY TOURS GO GANGBUSTERS

Get the skins sticky, Thredbo Backcountry Tours are uber on trend right now! Conditions are ripe, so sign up for a new adventure on your skis or board. Head off the beaten path and make your own tracks outside the resort boundaries with an experienced guide.

On a Backcountry Tour, supported by The North Face, not only will you ride unique and inspiring terrain, but learn important backcountry safety skills. Safety, new experiences and fun, our favourite trilogy.

RING THE BELL!

Ride Karels T-Bar and ring the Thredbo Community Bell at the country’s highest lifted point and score views to Victoria.  Suck in the fresh mountain air and take the 5km blue run from 2037 metres all the way back to base – perfect for a family morning adventure.

While you’re there, intermediate to advanced riders should take some turns on the recently renamed Frank’s Face, which is riding beautifully after the Storm of the Season. Frank’s Face, previously named The Tors was recently renamed after Thredbo local and Australia’s oldest Olympian Frank Prihoda.

LIFT PASSES!

With a promising springtime ahead and all resort areas now open, be sure to jump online and secure your lift passes before they get snapped up. Jump online here – you can even see how many passes remain on any given day with passes currently available from 31 August.
