Resorts in the south of Chile with nearly 3 metres of powder report it as "good conditions" whilst Thredbo constantly reports "best resort conditions, powder everywhere "Haha you've got to be joking

Again, Thredbo delivers with day after day of reporting powder expect next year to be overrun by Swiss and Austrians as they seek out our powder which will probably be reported right into summer.

hilary from Australia
I have been to Thredbo twice, both times fairly average snow, yet I loved it and hope to get back there, despite the 7 hr drive from Melbourne. There is no question - they have the longest runs in Australia. The village is pleasant and easy to get about in the buses if you are not ski-in ski-out.
I agree with other comments - wait and see what the snow cover and weather are like then do it.
As for whingers - of course it is not Europe, North America etc - but they aren't skiing in July/August! Happily, I can afford the northern hemisphere for January, and Buller and Thredbo will do for our winter.

Dan from Australia
I have lived and worked in ski resorts in NZ, Canada, USA and Europe and I can honestly say Thredbo is a world class resort. Whilst I can not speak for accommodation options (as I travelled 30mins from Jindabyne each day), the mountain itself has an excellent variety of runs (especially for intermediate ability) and a good lift system.
The mountain facilities were great and there was an abundance of snow for only a few weeks into the ski season. If the snow is good, Thredbo is an excellent ski resort.

C Ludlow from Australia
Thredbonet failed to respond to numerous complaints by phone and email regarding the substandard maintenance & cleaning of a property we hired from them. Of course they already had our money & at $700 per night we did expect clean sheets & towels !! The property advertised as luxury was dirty & ill kept. Be very careful renting apartments through this agency- they clearly do not care about their clients or the properties they look after.

Grant Wignall from Australia
Well once again the Aussie Alps have failed to deliver a decent season and with such a good start it really turned out to be disappointing with warm sunny days and plenty of rain in the mix. Ok, it's fine for families but if you're an intermediate or above in my opinion, after 20 years of persevering with the Aussie Alps, you would be better off saving your money and putting it towards a trip overseas. I recommend Japan, the US or Canada (BC). In actual fact with our dollar so strong it's not any more expensive than a snow holiday in OZ and it's so much better value for money in terms of infrastructure, acreage and the amount and quality of snow you get. Yes, I agree with the previous post regarding the "ministry for propaganda" It really does start to get a little monotonous and I know it's their job to paint the rosy picture, but they should be a little more honest and stop treating us like idiots.

Thredbo management are nothing short of con artists.
Whilst I understand that it's a commercial venture and they must do anything they can to make a profit, please realise that the snow depth readings on the website are up to a week old, are at 1900m (higher than most runs) and in a snow making area. It's not at all unusual for the website to say that there is a 150cm base when there is little (if any) snow on the mid/lower mountain.

Phil from Australia
Just back from a week of skiing the NSW resorts. Stayed in Jindabyne and made our way up each day to the resorts. Skied 2 days at Thredbo, with most of one day skiing back country over to Kosciusko, and around that area.
Weather wise it was amazing with blue skies though it was very warm. This made the snow slushy as the day went on. Thredbo is reliant on snow making to keep the lower runs into the village open, but they do an excellent job keeping the runs open so skiing into the village was always an option, even though it reached 16 degrees on one of the days. Considering it had been a while since there was snow the runs were well looked after, and there was certainly a good level of runs for most people. Limited due to snow conditions if after some steeper more testing runs.
Staff were friendly and the facilities were great. Have skied Europe, US and NZ and Thredbo facilities are as good as most. The down side is the price. Skiing in all Aussie resorts is expensive, this is probably due to the amount of snow making. On top of the resort price one also has to pay national park prices of $27 per car to enter the national park every day. Thredbo has its limitations if there is no fresh snow, but I would imagine it is a great ski when there is fresh snow around. Back country skiing has a huge potential in this area. Worth having a look if experienced enough, if not hire a guide. I did, K7 guides and I had a great day.
Overall, if you have the money then Thredbo is well worth a visit. Certainly suits the more competent skier/boarder.

Patrick from Australia
I'm an intermediate snowboarder and I personally didn't like Thredbo due to the fact that I was trying to get out from one of the T-Bars where I ended up running down into. Was trying to avoid the T-Bar but going up on it is the only way out. Unfortunately for me, I kept falling and have to put up with all the embarrassment until a friend was willing to help me and put up with my lack of coordination on the T-Bar. I personally find it more ski-friendly than snowboard friendly. Most of the runs are narrow and have too many people blocking your way which frustrates me a lot. If you're a skier and an advanced snowboarder, then go for this resort. But if you're a beginner or an intermediate snowboarder like me, go for Perisher Blue, or even better, New Zealand.

A Sullivan from Australia
An interesting 6 days in Thredbo last week, 19 to 24 July 2011. Wet snow half way up the hill to the top for the first four days, with drizzle (rain) down low. The good base stood up to the wet conditions, the whole mountain was open. Saturday 23rd was sunny with little wind, however, rock solid after a cold night and the earlier damp conditions Tue - Fri. The mountain is set up for another good snow fall some time in the next few weeks......fingers crossed. If the snow falls it will be worth a visit to Thredbo.

Donna Close from Australia
Had 5 days at Thredbo July 2011, last week. Staff were great, boarders thought they owned the runs, but that happens everywhere. Cash only was a real headache, no-one wants change rattling around in their pockets. Staff said it was due to expensive merchant fees, what a load of drivel, we all know that is rubbish, these fees are negotiable with banks, even AMEX is really cheap these days. The lift passes are more expensive than Big White in Canada. Some of the lifts are a bit old, Merrits had chains and pins as the safety strap. They need to deal with the cash only thing, will consider elsewhere next year!!

Daniel from Australia
Had an amazing 4 days here in early September 2011.
The upper mountain truly is world class (be ready to be surprised!).
We were lucky with a 2 metre base and fresh powder every morning, lower mountain got congested and soft in the afternoon but only to be expected in spring.
Very expensive lift passes and surly, rude lift staff. The village is 'cosy' and friendly but otherwise boring as all hell (2 very dull 'nightclubs') Food average and overpriced but very well stocked, cheap supermarket...
Be prepared to be shocked at the expense, furious at the staff and bored in the evening but (if you go with good company), you'll be surprised at how good the skiing can be here.

Margaret Dobell-Brown from Australia
Currently staying at Powder 3 apartment in Thredbo - do not stay here! Expensive accommodation in a prime position. However, on arrival the apartment was dusty and borderline dirty, some of the lights didn't work, neither of the 2 wall clocks were working, the main (wok) burner of the cooktop would not light and the provided gas match was out of gas, most of the saucepans were too dirty to use, and the BBQ was too dirty and greasy to use. On top of that, the beautiful spa on the deck was mouldy. However, at least it worked for 3 days, after that it stopped working. Then when it started to rain the roof leaked through a light fitting in the living room. As well as all that, the doorbells weren't working and one of the shower doors wouldn't close properly and the window in one bathroom provided no privacy from the next door neighbours. When we complained about these things we were treated with very little concern. However, a cleaner did come to clean the saucepans. Unfortunately, she left them for me to dry - not impressed! Someone came to fix the spa, however, it wasn't fixed and there was no communication from him about it. Does noone care about this apartment, which should be so nice if it was properly maintained.

Whatever you do do not stay at Woodridge 2 in Thredbo. Absolutely shocking accommodation run by
accomodationthredbo.com.au. They are not available to take complaints as they are based in Sydney.
The website is full of false advertising and very dirty.
Was the worst accommodation that I have stayed at.

Will Hu from United States
Finally, I was able to ski during July, not to mention that I came from Portland, Oregon. I could have skied at Timberline during July?
I booked a flight from Sydney to Cooma via Aeropelican. They flew a 19 seats twin propeller JetStreamer 21 aircraft. My inbound flight was delayed for over 3 hours due to the fact of early morning fog and Aeropelican only had one aircraft for the route. My outbound flight was a bit bumpy because of the weather conditions. Either way, I did not meet other skiers on board, I was wondering where are the skiers. Anyway, the other alternative from Sydney to Thredbo was via Greyhound AU for AUD120 each way, it took 7.5 hours each way too. My flight costed AUD150 each way, and AUD 120 round trip for the shuttle to and from Cooma airport to the Thredbo village. Flight duration is 60 minutes as advertised, the shuttle took over one hour each way, and the scenic way was worth the drive. I am not going to mention the cost of lodging and meal, they are more than Vail.
When the shuttle bus stopped at the Koscuiszko national park gate, it hit me why everything was so expensive, because the village is located inside a national park. Overnight, I heard a loud sound similar to ocean surf, it was the snow gun working overnight. Wow, no wonder the lift tickets were expensive too.
I followed the shuttle bus driver's advice to get on the lift by 8:30am, there was not much waiting at the Valley Terminal, so it was a breeze to go up on the Koscuiszko express to reach the Eagles Nest.
I took the Supertrail down, under some shadow area where ice had already formed. I ventured around the mountain to gunbarrel in Friday Flat until the snow was gone on some small trails. That was it.
I think it is worth skiing at Thredbo once in your lifetime, but it did not deserve my return trip.

Peter Wong from Australia
If you are Asian taking lessons at Thredbo or Perisher and know the Australian culture well, you will find a lot of the Australian instructors (blokes) are red necks. They hate Asian skiers. They speak in cynical racist way thinking that Asians won’t get it. They think Asians can’t ski (what a joke!). They suffer fools badly. The European or lady instructors are much better.

Wes from Australia
Positive comments about Thredbo are only written by resort owners.
Thredbo staff are rude and dangerous. My fiance nearly had an accident on a chair lift because a staff member wasn't paying attention. Almost 20 minutes later in the same area, we witnessed a chair lift operator throw a ski pole at a young girl, which hit her pointy end first in the side of the head (we couldn't believe what we saw).
Whatever your budget is for Thredbo, triple it. Our hotel room didn't even have a TV in it (Boali lodge).
Chair lift passes aren't refundable if you can't ski due to injury, or bad weather or whatever. This isn't the case in New Zealand, if the snow is not 3ft thick you get your money back.
Generally, it was a bad holiday, mainly due to the lift operators and rude people working in the hire shops and restaurants etc, and will be my last to Thredbo.
Do yourself a favour and go to New Zeland. I'm sure they will be friendlier there too.

Marcus from Australia
I must say that Australian snow will never compete with the snow that North America and Europe get, but there are time when we can get a surprisingly good amount of snow. I may have been lucky but this year has, without a doubt, had the best conditions I've ever seen in Thredbo, The day I got there the rain had just turned into snow and it kept on snowing all night. The next day it was cloudy all day with no wind, snow or rain. This kept the new fall nice and cold. The remainder of the week at Thredbo saw clear skies and was wind-free. I hope to get weather like that when I go in 2 weeks time and possibly next year.

simon norris from France
I have lived in Chamonix near Mont Blanc for 25 yrs (where there is possibly the best skiing in the world) and just had my first ski holiday in Thredbo. I have had such a great time here and loved the whole buzz of the place and especially the friendly staff and skiers here. The snow was better than I expected and you can see that a lot of work has been put in to getting the mountain into shape after a day of rain. I can't get over just how beautiful the snow gums are. I am amazed by how many good skiers are at Thredbo. I hope to be able to come back here and enjoy it some more.

Eddy from Australia
Thredbo is easily the best ski resort in Australia. If you know where to go after some fresh snow you can have one of your most enjoyable days out skiing. During the season, the snow up on the bluff can measure up to as much as 7 metres deep from fresh snow and that that has been windblown. There is plenty of fun to have on and off the mountain. Eagles Nest restaurant at the top of Kozi chair is an awesome spot to have some lunch and a quick break from skiing. The owners are fantastic and the views surrounding the restaurant are awesome. Thredbo, without a doubt, has the best village and nightlife of any resort in Australia with plenty of restaurants to dine and bars to drink at.
Nothing else in the country can compete with Thredbo's 672metres of vertical. Some argue that they prefer Perisher as the base elevation is higher. But because of this you spend most of your time on the chairlift. Overall, a trip to Thredbo is the best ski experince to be had in Australia.

knowitall from Australia
Thredbo is Australia's best resort, no two ways about it (yet to meet someone who has actually been there and feels differently). Like any other ski resort in the world it can be epic and it can be very ordinary (any oz resort can be particularly ordinary cause the sun is so hot). This year it has been epic! It has a 600m vertical in a top to bottom motion (that is pretty rare on this continent). If you have no idea what that means please go to Perisher... you will be right at home!

Linda from Australia
I have skied globally and tried Thredbo in mid August 2007.
I was advised this period is peak season and the best time to ski Australia. Well, it rained and the snow was the worst I have ever experienced. It looked like a nice place even though the runs are very short. My only real issue was the rudeness of the snowboaders. They don't watch out where they are going, don't give way and abuse people if they are near them. Australia needs to get its act together in relation to 'give way' rules on the mountain, especially since its such a small resort. Perhaps the snowboarders require a separate resort? No other place in the world behaves like Australian Snowboarders. Is it a cultural thing? Attitude?

Dougie Siu from Australia
Thredbo is a place of dreams if you haven't got much of an imagination. There are good snow days, and bad snow days. Average snow days seem to be the trend recently since 2004. I have had great Thredbo days and bruising "I can't turn" ice days.
I have boarded loyally at Thredbo for 6 years now, reasons mainly in this order:
- Thredbo Card discount benefit ($12 off through being a Toyota Summit Club Member),
- less chance of requiring vehicle snowchains,
- close to Sydney (5 hours close)
- better terrain
- and shorter lift lines.
I've skiied in NZ, Canada and Japan. All great places to stay and ski. Japan being my pick so far because of the endless powder and people. Comparing these world class resorts to Thredbo is like comparing a playground to a stadium. Snow is always best experienced when there is of course enough snow. Some need more than others, and we unfortunately don't get much in Australia compared to the rest of the snow world.
I love Thredbo for its good and hate it for it's bad...So, don't expect much from Thredbo and complain when there hasn't been any snow falls. You don't go to the beach on a rainy day, and expect it to be good swimming weather. Check your forecasts and plan carefully your expensive Aussie snow days to get the most out of Thredbo !!!

Peter Georgiou from Australia
Everyone knows it... compared to the major snow resorts in the world, Thredbo just doesn't really compare.
Everyone also knows that it probably sells you the world's most expensive lift pass! But hey, thank God we've actually got some of the (white) stuff! And it does produce its powder days. Plus its boarder parks can be bloody awesome!

Sking in Australia; forget it. I suspect that any positive reports on this site are written by the resort owners; THEY WANT YOUR MONEY NOW. Factor in the high ok, the outrageous costs involved of skiing these hills and yes, they are only hills and it's cheaper to buy a flight to NZ or further afield.

Liza Brooks from United Kingdom
Must say having been spoil by the french alps in my snowboarding time the snow here wasn't exactly as good as l hoped but l was reliably informed winter 2005 was terrible at the start which was when l visited. The runs were like solid hard pack.
Also the grading of runs is a little crazy a Ozzie instructor told me that they don't get graded on difficulty they get graded on what they think will bring more people into the resort. I went on one 'green' which was nails! would ahve been a hard red in France, it was possibly made worse by the ice though.
Another thing l would warn people about it the lack of etiqute in the lift queue with regards to other peoples equiptment. According to people in my group 99% of people hire so no one cares if they step on your board or skis and they are happy to skewer them with a ski pole. But this is apparently more because everyone hires and not that anyone is trying to be evil like what happens in france.
One thing l loved about the resort was the beginners board park! it was great, l have never been in the park before and as the resort was in bad shape l thought l'd try my hand at some tricks. Everyone speaks english and the morral between everyone is great and they all cheer you on to try something new and look out for each other.
One thing europeans will find odd is they make you take off your board on most of the chair lifts! something which is banned in france as l found out when l had to ride a lift which my board hanging off a sprained ankle cos the liftie wouldn't let me carry it.
Food wise BARGAIN! I stayed in Jindy and there was a $6 snitzel place to all english people the snitzle is a piece of chicken in bread crumb and shallow fried. We also found a LUSH!!!! Pizza shop that delivered! The best pizza l have ever had IN THE WORLD!!!! it was located near the chinese and supermarket.

Thommo from Australia
Thredbo is Australia's best resort, especially in terms of vertical and terrain (and village atmosphere, nightlife etc). But this is subject to the snow conditions.
Some people might argue that MtHotham has better advanced terrain (and more accessable backcountry options), and better snow quality, arguments which I think have merits, but I also think thredbo makes up for that in terms of vertical and terrain size(ie: it doubles that of Hotham).
Go there before any other Australian Resort (MtHotham a close second) when there is a 1.5 metre base of snow, all lifts are open, and there is forecasted snow down to 1200 metres.
Avoid the place if there is less than a metre, the Kosciousko, GunBarrel, Antons and Sponars lifts are not open; your best bet is Perisher Blue in poor snow conditions, mainly because of its vast snow making facilties and the fact that it is higher and does seem to get just a little bit more snow, especially in the bad seasons.

Bill from New Zealand
Thredbo is an awesome resort, in 2004 i skied in the Japan, europe, New Zealand and Australia and i can honestly say thredbo was just as good as anywhere else, the snow was v.good 45cm fresh DRY powder on the 1st day!, the the middle of September! even when the powder had been tracked out it was still great with some very exciting terrain and long runs. A++.

Andrew from Australia
Yes, there is snow in Australia! And Thredbo is the best place to ski when the snow is good, with a great village, high speed quad chairs and plenty of vertical. Check the webcams before you leave home though, because depending on the season, snow conditions can vary from fresh deep pow to thin hardpack to mud!
