The Alpine way speed limit has now changed to 80km/h. Please see below the Snowy Mountains road rules and regulations for the Winter 2021 season.
Game ON! Thredbo’s transformed into a winter wonderland with a storm total of 60cm up high and 25cm in the village 👊 Snow flurries are set to continue in the coming days…what an awesome way to kick off the season!
We're stoked to announce that Gunbarrel, Cruiser, Merritts Gondola, Easy Does It and Syd’s Snow Runner will all be open for skiing and snowboarding from this Saturday 12 June.

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!

Yes, it's JUNE already and with another COVID outbreak occurring in Victoria as we speak, we decided to devote this month to taking care of both yourself and your business. Whether that be by helping you in your personal development or simply keeping you, your customers and your business safe in these challenging times.
For example, this month, we explore topics such as procrastination and practical steps on how to avoid procrastination as well as how to remain positive and successful in your business and personal life, during these very trying times.
Also, given that cyber criminals are taking advantage of the uncertainties and the rapid changes that are being caused by the pandemic, particularly as we try to pivot our businesses online, we have some practical tips (and NEW webinars, see below), that can help you keep these undesirables at bay.
Finally, as always, we are here and equipped to help if you need our assistance.
