Hi All! I hope that everyone is remaining productive and positive during lockdown. I hope that everyone is still able to remain positive and stick together as best we can as a community. Don’t forget that there are many of Thredbo's favorite venues still doing takeaway, so if you can, order some delicious food and support local businesses in a stressful time!

Please see below information regarding the ACT lockdown. Please do the right thing for our ski season and stay at home if you have been in the ACT from the 5th of August.
Thredbo Resort confirms that a sample taken from its sewerage treatment plant has returned a positive sample for COVID-19. No cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Thredbo.
The health and safety of our guests, employees and community remains our highest priority and Thredbo continues to work under the advice of NSW Health.
Thredbo is committed to playing our part in ensuring the health and safety of our guests, teams and our community. We urge anyone displaying even the mildest COVID-19 symptoms to get tested immediately and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
Under the current state-wide stay at home orders, Thredbo continues to pause its winter season until we are able to open again.
In addition, the Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) is correcting inaccurate media reports about a COVID-19 case in the Snowy Monaro LGA. The case was temporarily allocated to the Snowy Monaro area on the NSW Health website based on the case’s previous residential address. There are currently NO cases of COVID-19 in the Snowy Monaro.
Testing is available at Jindabyne and Cooma this week: 🧪 Cooma Showgrounds drive-through, Cromwell St, Cooma 8.00am – 4.00pm, Friday to Sunday

Did you know that soft plastic such as GLAD wrap, bubble wrap, snack wrappers and cereal box liners cannot be placed in Thredbo's regular yellow recycling bags. Soft plastics need to be disposed of separately.
Plastic cannot biodegrade – it breaks down into smaller pieces and accumulates in the environment. Wildlife including fish and birds are threatened by ingesting and becoming entangled in plastics that drift into their habitat. Plastic particles also accumulate in landfill where toxic chemicals may seep into groundwater and downstream water sources. It is estimated that around eight million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year!
As consumers, we need to acknowledge the problem and rethink our consumption of plastics. There are many plastic waste hierarchy’s on the web, but they all have the 4 R's in common.
Refuse single use plastics wherever possible – when grocery shopping purchase loose items not packaged in plastic, bring your own reusable bags and containers for takeaway food.
Reduce your plastic footprint – choose products that contain less plastic packaging and fewer plastic parts – what happens to those products at their end-of-life?
Reuse existing products where possible – glass and stainless steel are long-lasting, durable, healthier alternatives to plastic. If you do end up with plastic containers, you may be able to re-purpose them (storing seeds for the garden, nuts and bolts in the shed)
Recycling programs are struggling to keep up with the massive amounts of plastics they receive. Recycling is a band-aid solution rather than a prevention – and should be considered only if you cannot refuse or reuse. There are REDcycle programs across Australia for soft plastics, and most hard plastics can be recycled.
The good news is that you can collect your soft plastics and drop them off to the collection point at Woolworths in Jindabyne or Cooma.
Help keep our beautiful mountain environment plastic free!
