Season passes are back, kid’s programs will return, and brand new experiences will be unveiled when Thredbo kicks off one of its most anticipated ski seasons ever this year. “I think the demand will be unprecedented,” Thredbo general manager Stuart Diver told news.com.au. “The experience of skiing in Thredbo when the day is good, is as good as you’ll get anywhere in the world. It’s the centrepiece of a new experience at Thredbo this winter — Saturday night rides up to Merritts restaurant for a Bavarian-inspired feast. • Extra flights: QantasLink has announced extra flights to Australia’s snowfields — including Cooma, which services Thredbo — this season.
