I have some friends from Sydney heading to Thredbo for a weekend at the end of August. I am from Melbourne and planning on meeting up with them for 3 days (Sat/Sun/Mon) skiing. First timer to NSW fields. As a reference I ski at Buller and Hotham in Vic. Basic plan/queries below: Driving as far as I can on the Friday night from Melbourne. Will be driving solo. Any suggestions of where is a good spot to try and get to? Plan to then drive up the mountain on Saturday morning Would be nice to keep this to <1hr drive if possible. Time I should be targeting to get up there to miss crowds as much as possible? How does parking work at Thredbo? Will have all my own gear. Staying in Jindabyne Sat/Sun nights - never been before Looking on GM understand this is the other side from where I am coming from What are the chains rules? Driving AWD Subaru Impreza. Do I need to carry them? Likelihood of having to fit them? Any deals that people know of to get the cheapest 3 day lift ticket possible! Any tips leaving on the Monday afternoon to drive back to Melbourne? Anything else a NSW should know would be great, thanks in advance!
