No bites yet... surely we haven't all had enough of the 'lift tickets are too expensive' argument?

For the platinum pass I think it's quite good value

I thought I replied..

Basically a 3.8% increase on last year for a day ticket, big deal. Mt Buller's went up 5%........

As always never good value when compared to overseas resorts.

If I have some time and it's a good season I need to fit a few days at Thredbo in

$107 would be good value if you could ski non stop all day! 30min lift ques tend to reduce the value.


doesn't happen that often at Thredbo

I never stand in a lift queue for 30 minutes at Thredbo. You're doing it wrong

You just need to go at the right time. Sure, 10.30am Saturday morning the 10th August any year is going to be pretty crowded. But mid-week, middle to end of July and early September unless it is a blue bird powder day (yeh right!) is never going to be a thirty minute wait.

Wasn't the early bird platinum pass the same price last year?

Yes, can someone divide $1250 by 30 for me? Thats what I pay per day, so its good value for me, unless my math is bad.


If you know Thredbo its true you would only get caught in a 30 minute queue very rarely, usually through a fault, or wind/weather hold, or forgetting what time it is, and doing the wrong run. Like the time I skied Slowgummies when it was the only thing open, hour per run, but so good I held on for three, even though I was nearly hypothermic. When its all open, the lifting rate is good, so even though the line looks huge, you are on the chair quicker than you would expect, (if you should make a timing/run selection error).

The thing about Thredbo is that if its nearly all open you can move around to avoid the queues

It's worth remembering that a 30 minute queue on Kosci chair is not the same as a 30 minute queue on the Forrester Quad... SLIGHTLY more terrain and much more vertical off the Kosci, so more bang for buck - as a % of 'lap time' the queue is less significant.

Thredbo has way bigger bottlenecks that Perisher, and way bigger liftlines...
but then.. thats a sympton of bigger vertical and narrow width.

Blue Mtns, 1100M.
Even in the July school holidays, for the past 7 years, we've only ever endured a queue ONCE of near 30 minutes and that was last year-----maybe we've been lucky, but thats a lot of lucky!

I don't buy into the 'Thredbo has bigger lift lines' myth. I've never experienced waits at the Gunbarrel or Kosi chair like I have at the Perisher quad or Ridge chair. First thing in the morning, sure, but once everyone is up and around the mountain it's never that bad. The Cruiser gets big lines around lesson start times but crowds disperse fairly quickly there too, in my experience anyway.

Oh... sorry... I mean...

No! You're wrong Wang! The lines are horrible and everyone should stay away...

Y'know I think you may be right Hobber. Horrible, horrible lines, all day long from June right through to October. Then the crazy hippy walkers take over and there's big smoke hazed lift lines for Kosi at the top AND bottom, not to mention the patchouli stink...

Terrible place, Thredbo. Just terrible.

I thought 5 min was a long wait for a lift in Thredbo, at least that's what my experience is.

But I don't go up on days when only Slowgums and Meeeerrrrrriiiittttttssss.......... Chair are running - that's just silly.

It's the wait on the chair to get back to the top that is a problem.
