Thredbo offers varied terrain for every ability, consisting of 16% beginner, 67% intermediate, and 17% advanced slopes. What Thredbo lacks in size (480 hectares compared with Perisher's 1245 hectares), it makes up for in vertical with Australia's longest trail at five kilometres.
Thredbo's beautifully groomed runs include beginner slopes, such as the Friday Flat, and the runs from Crusier chairlift; an excellent place to master your technique skiing and snowboarding. Then once you've gained more confidence, head over to High Noon with more fun blue runs at the top of The Basin and in Central Spur. Thredbo's blue and black runs offer intermediate skiers and snowboarders a wide variety of terrain to enjoy.
Suppose you're looking for a challenge while skiing or snowboarding, check out some of the best advanced terrain in the country at Thredbo. The Black graded terrain consists of relatively short runs, but Cannonball and Bushwhacker are popular. Massive fall lines, natural wind lips, powder bowls, and hectares of off-piste and backcountry terrain - there is an incredible amount of fun to be had on the advanced terrain at Thredbo.
Terrain parks are another opportunity to put your skills to the test at Thredbo or to learn something new. There are jumps of all sizes as well as a raft of box and rails to keep everyone happy. Playground Terrain Park is the place to start before you progress to the Cruiser Park with its small jumps. Once you've got those parks under control, head up to Antons, which is the place for the advanced riders, with wall rides, rails, boxes, tubes, and jumps of various heights. On High Noon there's a Ridercross course aimed at intermediates wanting to master their turns, berms, and rollers, and for the mogul lover, the moguls course at Meadows is a true test.
