Today’s the day. Thredbo have released their season pass pricing, lift ticket discount offers and upgrades for 2024 ski season from June 8 to October 7.

The resort will continue to limit daily tickets sold to improve on mountain experience and now has a limited number of lift passes, rentals, lessons, backcountry tours and more available to purchase for winter 2024.

“Our focus on prioritising capacity utilisation on the mountain is continuing to drive a more premium experience overall,” says Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver.

“Combine this with the new Alpine Coaster, Australia’s biggest winter events calendar plus our incredible skiing and snowboarding offering, and we’re confident that this winter will be one of our best.”

Season Pass prices

A limited number of winter 2024 season passes are now available to purchase from today. Those who managed to nab themselves a winter season pass will also receive major benefits including unlimited access to the Leisure Centre alongside discounts on Alpine Coaster rides private lessons, food and drinks, rental, retail, backcountry tours, bring a friend vouchers and lots more.

2024 winter season passes are available to purchase now with several options to choose from including the Thredbo Season Pass for AUD$1799 for 22-64 year olds and the Value Season Pass (blackout dates from 6–21 July 2024 and no added benefits) for AUD$1619 for 22-64 year olds.

Thredbo Season Pass + Ikon Base Pass (save $1000)

This saving is huge. The Ikon Base Pass currently sells for AUD$1323 but if you buy the Thredbo Season Pass you can purchase a 24/25 Ikon Base Pass “add-on” for AUD$300. That’s a saving of AUD$1000.

A great value option for skiers and snowboarders who intend to ride not just at Thredbo but at a plethora of international ski destinations. You’ll receive the benefits of both passes including unlimited access to Thredbo’s winter 2024 season plus unlimited access at 14 global destinations and up to 5 days at a further 36 destinations.

New “value season” discounts on lift tickets

The resort has launched Value Season discounts of up to 50% for kids and up to 30% for adults on three to five day mid-week lift passes between June 8-28 and September 9 – October 7. Guests can also score great value discounts all season by booking lift passes seven days in advance, plus they can save 20% on rental hire by bundling it with their pass.

New this winter, the option to add Alpine Coaster rides from just $15.

Lift passes start today from $175 for a one day pass to $188 for a one day pass, though these will increase as numbers sell. Obviously discounts apply the more days you buy the more in advance you buy and the time of the season.

Hot tip is to buy in advance and maximise savings by buying multi days.

New Alpine Coaster, snowmaking upgrades and snowcats

Construction is currently underway for the Southern Hemisphere’s first-ever year-round Alpine Coaster, set to open this winter. The new Thredbo Alpine Coaster will diversify the resort’s year-round recreational offering as an all-weather, action-packed way to experience the mountain.

At 1.5km in length, passengers will be able to control their speed of up to 40km/h as they travel along a mix of uphill and downhill tracks featuring a tunnel, bridges and circles that traverse the alpine environment.

Ahead of this season, Thredbo will also replace the pipeline snowmaking gun and add three new fan guns towards the base of the Kosciuszko Chairlift, building upon the fifteen snowmaking guns added in 2022 and 2023. There will also be a new Pisten Bully snowcat and a new Prinoth Demo snowcat added to the fleet this winter, ensuring the machinery remains top of the line for grooming and terrain park building.

As part of their wide-scale development plan, Thredbo has also been upgrading its chairlift infrastructure, launching Freddie’s Snowrunner in 2023 plus the Easy-Rider T-Bar and the Merritts Gondola in 2022. The Snowgums Chairlift is the next lift to be replaced in 2025 as part of this plan.

On-mountain events, backcountry and adventures

Thredbo’s curated lineup of events, experiences and entertainment is said to be its biggest and most diverse to date this winter with non-stop live music and entertainment, the weekly flare run and fireworks show, a huge lineup of famous après events, kid’s festivals, skiing and snowboarding events and a series of once-in-a-lifetime on-mountain experiences.
