Thredbo, NSW - Ski/Snowboard Resort

Thredbo is widely regarded as Australia's best ski resort. It has Australia's biggest vertical drop of 672 metres (1365m - 2037m), tree runs as well as open areas, and a true alpine village. Thredbo also boasts the biggest snowmaking system in the Southern Hemisphere (other resort's snowmaking is trivial by comparison), they can even open vast areas with no natural snowfall at all (ie: 2km long runs).

Despite only having 14 lifts, they are far longer and faster than at other ski resorts, so the real uphill lifting capacity is the best in the country. Queues are shorter here than at other resorts - you spend more time on the slopes and less time in queues and in lines.

Thredbo Village has over 5,000 commercial beds but it is a small place - if you are wearing shoes you can walk from the centre (or the slopes) to the furthest point in about 4-5 minutes, but there is a free shuttle bus system (they run in circles every 5 minutes or so) so you do not have to walk far when carrying your equipment and wearing your ski/board boots.
