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!
From the Thredbo Community and the chamber we would like to wish Ian Foster the speediest of recoveries. Our thoughts are with him and his family. Ian is a long time executive Chamber member and a loved man within the Thredbo community! For anyone who wishes to send something to Ian, Kayleigh at the Lantern apartments has a collection box happening. You can also follow Ians recovery on a Facebook page. The link to the page is below.
If anyone would like to include any updates, information or advertising in the newsletter please send an email or get in touch with the Chamber of Commerce today!
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.
The health and safety of our guests, employees and community is our highest priority. Following the NSW Government announcement (26 August), Thredbo’s winter season will continue to be paused until we are able to open again.
While we are incredibly disappointed to see the temporary closure of the resort, we are committed to playing our part in ensuring the health and safety of our guests, teams and our community. We will continue to monitor the situation and are working closely with NSW Health. We plan to reopen as soon as we are able to, and look forward to welcoming our guests back to the mountain soon.
During this time we are here to assist any of your guests that have purchased Thredbo product. If your guests have purchased Thredbo product and have been affected by the extended NSW state-wide stay-at-home order (including Thredbo events they have registered for e.g. Thredbo Snow Series), they can submit a lift pass and event refund request form below. Refund requests will be processed within 6 weeks of receiving refund requests.
Our Guest Services team is working hard to respond to all enquiries and you and your guests patience is appreciated. For all Thredbo Resort COVID-19 updates, information and Cancellation Policy please click below.

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!
