Thredbo Chamber Update 

How very lucky are we to still be enjoying all of the wonderful snow that we have. There is still so much happening on the mountain! The snow series and Top to bottom will be happening next week and we still have live music at multiple locations throughout the village and on the mountain. If you get the chance get out and enjoy all that Thredbo has to offer. 

Just a reminder to all to please pass on the correct information to your guests and make it known to them that masks and checking in with the QR code is a requirement in all venues in Thredbo. Face masks are compulsory in all indoor venues, including the Gondola and public transport. Face coverings are highly recommended in outdoor areas. A face covering is not a mask. It is a strange and difficult time for everybody so let's all remember to be respectful and considerate to others.

Thredbo Environment and Sustainability Update

 
 Help Thredbo Resort divert 50% of waste away from landfill by 2023!
 
Caring for the environment is a team effort! Thredbo resort currently achieves a recycling rate of 36% and climbing. Working together as a community we aim to divert 50% of waste away from landfill by 2023 and encourage you to be part of protecting the village and mountains we all value so much. You can help by –
 
  • Recycling - Thredbo collects plastic bottles, glass, and cans in yellow bags/bins and paper and cardboard in blue bags. Help divert waste from landfill and tackle the problem at the source by taking a little time to spilt your recycling thoughtfully.
  • Composting - Thredbo now has a new Closed Loop organics recycling machine, doubling our capacity for food waste recycling and allowing us to increase the number of restaurants, lodges and apartments in Thredbo taking part. Interested in recycling your food waste? Contact the friendly Thredbo Environment Team for more info!
  • Buy Smart - Simple switches go a long way. Avoid products with unnecessary packaging and reuse where possible.
Let’s continue to work together towards a more sustainable future, today! For more information, questions or suggestions get in touch with Andy from the Thredbo Environment Team on andy_mudge@evt.com.

Recycling of soft plastics  

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!

Snowies Iconic Walk project update - July 2021 

 

The Snowies Iconic Walk is the working title for a project to build an exceptional multi-day walk across the alpine roof of Australia in Kosciuszko National Park - the traditional lands of the Wolgalu and the Ngarigo people.

Funding awarded for stage 4 of the Snowies Iconic Walk

In June, Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack announced $10 million in funding to deliver the 11km track between Perisher Valley and Bullocks Flat, as part of the Regional Recovery Partnerships program.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the project will complete the Kosciuszko Snowies Iconic Walk, a world-class walking experience through the internationally recognised tourism destination.

"Set in the Snowy Mountains, the Snowies Iconic Walk will showcase the unique alpine ecosystems of the Kosciuszko summit precinct," Mr McCormack said.

"This is all about attracting visitors to the surrounding region, which suffered devastating social, environmental and economic losses in the 2020 bushfires."

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro, whose electorate includes the Snowy Mountains, said the walking trail would cement the region as the premier adventure destination in the country.

"The Snowy Mountains is no longer just a winter destination, it is the destination of choice year-round," he said.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor Peter Beer said that the announcement is welcomed by the community and shows continued investment in the region.

“This is a key part of a long-term project assisting to lift our visitor numbers in the non-winter months, which all helps to build on our growing year-round visitor economy in the Snowy Mountains and beyond.”
The project will build upon the NSW Government’s $17 million investment in this iconic attraction through the Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund, funded through Restart NSW.
