What was the first
Two bottles of French champagne, three long lines of coke, 3 featured shots of Thredbo on your Insta account…and money…lots of money…
What was the cost of a full unrestricted pass last year for an adult? $1649?

Not into traversing bro.
Love the way Thredbo people think Perisher's traverses are terrible.
First time snowboarding at Thredbo tried to use the Cruiser traverse from the top of Antons. Despite a strong wind at my back I had to unstrap & walk the uphill section.
My daughter was skiing and complained how much she had to pole to get over it
Never had to do that at Perisher.

The traverses to & from the Gunbarrel top are not the best either

Don't really notice the Thredbo traverses when on skis :out:

Cruiser traverse is nothing if you know your way through. Same goes for the other 2 if you follow the correct route.

I cant tell if you are serious or not? Wait in a ridge chair or (un)happy T Bar queue for an hour and report back to me. F Perisher and the epic pass.
If you are skiing the Ridge or Happy what do you expect. You can always find short queues somewhere at Perisher, with good skiing to be had.

Got an email from Thredbo, along with everyone else I assume, promoting a whole lot of winter stuff. However, no mention at all of tickets, either season passes or day passes.
Could you share it? I’ve changed my work email and I think Thredbo emails were going there.

Yeah fair enough. I do avoid the two of those if i can absolutely avoid it but i love banging out lots of runs with decent vert in a day and find nothing comes close to Ridge for that, but absolutely Mt P, North P and Guthega has some lovely and varied terrain with minimal queues. Just much shorter runs than i like. Just been a bit burnt on a my last few trips at Perisher with seemingly endless queues.

I spend more time traversing in T than P, so yeah I really don’t understand the T folks jokes or grumbles about it. And it’s not cos I don’t know my round T. It’s a bit of a demented debate/ joke.

History deserves respect.
As someone once boldly posted.
You can ski Thredbo top to bottom or Perisher side to side.
Its cute how Thredbo is promoted as top to bottom.
Anything below 1700m is a slalom course around pick up sticks yardsales over terrible blown ice with bits of bark.
Its a absolutely shit hill under 1700m 80 to 90% of the season.

To put things into my own selfish perspective after over 50 years skiing in OZ and an umpteenth visit to Austria recently - the dollar to value here in NSW resorts is Perisher needs to be half the price of Thredbo before I am intersted.
EDIT and yes most of those years were in Perisher

Ah! So if Thredbo ups their price to double that of Perisher then we can get rid of you and your place in the queue.
Perisher is better!
Now to exterminate the freeheelers and vertical tobogganers......
Uranium depleted donuts!
