From Friday Flats beginner runs to steep tree runs, board park and half-pipe, Thredbo offers something for everyone.

Thredbo guarantees that there will be snow, as it boasts the largest snow-making facilities in the Southern Hemisphere as well as the highest lift point in Australia.

It has the biggest area for skiiing in the Southern Hemisphere, with options suitable for all levels, from beginner to thrill-seeking skier or snowboarder. Perisher has a range of services, such as the terrain park's 85-foot (26-meter) rail, tabletops, burns, kickers and a half-pipe designed by experts.
