Thredbo crowned best ski resort in Aus


Fourth consecutive award for the NSW winter playground

Despite a different snow season this year thanks to COVID-19, Thredbo Resort once again impressed judges at the World Ski Awards, taking out the top spot as Australia’s Best Ski Resort.

 

This is the fourth consecutive year the resort has won and comes on the back of Thredbo taking out Australia’s Best Family Ski Resort for 2020 in the Ski & Snowboard with Kids Awards.

 

 

Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver said winning the accolade in such a challenging year made it “even more special”.

 

"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,” Diver said.

 

“Winning this award is the icing on the cake."

 

2020 saw Thredbo launch Merritts Gondola, a multimillion dollar investment that resulted in guests being transported up to the Merritts area in only six minutes.

 

"The gondola has been a game changer,” Diver said.

 

“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."
