Thredbo looks set to build new accommodation for the first time in thirty years.

The New South Wales government accepted Thredbo’s application to subdivide some of the Thredbo golf course and the development proposal is now open for public consultation.

Event Hospitality and Entertainment (EVT) who own the ski resort has proposed a subdivision that will bring 186 beds to the resort.

The accommodation plan, which has been in the works for two years, is to sell the land plots to developers with strict environmental and development guidelines and the proviso that 186 beds will be added to the resort accommodation offerings.

The golf course would then be redesigned with a new access road.

The Australian Financial Review exclusively reported today that EVT hopes the initiative will align “with the NSW government’s master plan for a Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct, meaning it would let the company bypass local council approval.”

The Snowy Mountains region is experiencing a regional tourism boom, first boosted during Covid international border closures, and is part of a 40 year government plan to create a year round destination.
