Thanks Easty. I do find it disappointing that they have not given either a free,or reduced priced pass, to winter pass has leers who missed such a large proportion of the use of their winter pass this year.

They have crept over my threshold for what I think it should be. Ill wait and see what they email me. Only got ten day on my winter pass, enough to not ask for a refund (or be entitled to one) which made it my most expensive season in a very long time. Perisher pass starting to look more viable. Will Thredbo be only holiday makers. {people I know who skied there for the last 30 years changed last year. The only regulars I saw this year either work there, or their families do, so stronger ties.

10% increase on last years significant increase.......just like an insurance company or something.

Were the leisure centre and bob sled additional add ons last year? $100 for the centre, and $50 for the bobsled. These add ons would be a must have for our family

Turns a $549 pass into $699, makes me reconsider the family getting these.

Then if you want golf and tennis add another $50

I hope they don't split the winter pass out like that, the pool and showers is our must have.

getting rid of the 365 pass just opened up places to ride for me. If I looked in a 365 I would be committed to ride Thredbo more. So it opens up going to bright, greenvalley and other places now.

They were add ons last year and I do not think that the price has changed.

I think these price rises, as well as absolutely no acknowledgment that winter pass holders lost at least four weeks this year on a very expensive pass, will make many people reconsider.

It would be a real shame if Thredbo lost all the local families because of the cost.

I seriously don't think the local market is even a consideration.

No. They are not fools when it comes to their markets. It's not us. We'll be doing the odd day at Thredbo for whatever summer reason from now on rather than locked. I wonder what will become of the proposed mtn bike park west of Jindabyne - who wants to throw in to invest. It could be a winner!

I think the hiking pass is squarely aimed at locals - would someone who doesn't live in the area really buy 7 or 8 day passes (which is the break even for the hiking season pass) across a summer season? I doubt it

Thredbo locals is maybe 49 people.
i was including Jindabyne and surrounds in addition to Thredbo in the locals market.

I doubt anyone from Sydney/Canberra/Melbourne or anywhere else that isn't the Monaro is buying 7 or 8 day passes at Thredbo to go hiking across summer. That's a lot of Kossie and dead horse gap hikes across a 7 - 14 day summer holiday

is there a locals pass for those that live in Thredbo?
No. Locals (live in Thredbo) got the same discount on winter passes as those with kids in programs or people with a summer pass. The summer mtb/hiking passes do not seem to be discounted for anyone.

Be nice to know if you will get a discount again off the winter pass if you buy the summer one.

How much for year round access now?
non discounted winter season was $1600 wasn't it (discounted was $1200 IIRC)
Summer season $550

a $1700 365 would be good value in comparison. I would probably even pay $1800. It would tie me back to thredbo for summer.

Thredbo management expect special treatment and massive discounts down here.

Not surprised it's a oneway street.

Yes, you got a discount on your winter pass if you had a mtb pass making the winter pass $1200.
A year round pass at $1600 - 1700 would tie people in for the year - would be good if it gave year round leisure center access as well.

Still no email. Bit slack IMO, maybe a sign of the new mentality, along with a standard 10% increase every year?

Northern Beaches, Sydney,
Lifelong Perisher skier due to lodge access but am looking at doing plenty of MTB this summer. $1600 for a 365 pass would almost make it justifiable to do some winter days as well and have access to both resorts depending on which way the wind is blowing.

How does the discounts work in winter with an MTB pass?

From memory, I received a $400? discount off of this seasons winter pass for being a summer pass holder.

Haven't seen anything promising that again. It may have just been a one off.

Accommodation booked for the week between Xmas and NY but will hopefully visit many more weekends, but most likely based in Jindy for day trips to different locations depending on activity, riding, fishing, running, hiking etc. :)
