16 May 2018

Ready to head to a winter wonderland? The snowflakes have already started to falling in the Snowies, so we know 2018 is going to be an incredible season. We know that happiness is sledding all day and a cup of hot chocolate next to a fireplace after sundown.

Come June long weekend, Thredbo and Perisher will really kick into gear with events throughout the season. From music festivals to family fun days, prepare yourself for plenty of stoke both on and off the slopes.

Celebrate the start of the snow season in Thredbo! Find your zen (and maybe some om, too) with outdoor snowga. Kids will enjoy button badge making, face painting, bungee running, an amazing race, and outdoor giant games (yup, imagine giant jenga). What's a celebration without fireworks?

Snow Season Events 2018

 

Peak Festival

Where: Kosciuszko Rd, Perisher Valley NSW 2624

A massive line-up of musos, free kids' entertainment and snow play - all in one place? It sounds too good to be true, but Peak Festival is as real as your yearly goggle tan. Dan Sultan is headlining this year, alongside bands Cool Out Sun and Matt Glass & The Loose Canons. A four-day pass is good value with free night skiing and unlimited scenic chairlift rides. Experience the Peak in Perisher. 

Snow Events 2018

July & September Kids Snow Festival

When: 2-21 July 2018 | 23-30 September 2018
Where: Thredbo Resort, Friday Dr, Thredbo NSW 2625
thredbo.com.au/events/2018/july-kids-snow-festival/

When the holidays come around, kids are beside themselves to get to sleep in, eat snacks when they want, and spend time hanging out with their friends. Parents love the extra quality time, but it can be a bit daunting to find ways to fill up the time. The Kids Snow Festival in July is all about entertaining the kids and the adults. Let's face it, school holidays are best spent making snow angels and new friends on the bunny hills. There are heaps of free activities, movie and pizza nights, and night skiing (with plenty of time for Mum & Dad to unwind at the ski lodge).

Who knew Santa had skills on the pow? If you've always dreamt of a White Christmas, this July is your chance to make it all come true.

Onesie Wednesdays

When: Every Wednesday throughout the snow season
Where: Kosciuszko National Park, NSW

Tucked into Kosciuszo National Park is the resort Charlotte Pass - a totally family friendly spot with reasonable slopes. Each Wednesday, don your finest onesie for the day on the mountain. Prepare yourself to see koalas, zebras, sharks, and elephants riding. Remember that the onesie isn't a protective shield from the cold, so wrap yourself up in thermals and snow pants underneath. 

Snowtunes

Where: Open Air Stage, Jindabyne NSW
snowtunes.com.au/

The biggest snow music festival in the southern hemisphere, Triple J's Snowtunes is a ripper event. Set on the shores of Lake Jindabyne, the line-up in 2018 features massive names like Rudimental, Violent Soho, Hockey Dad, and The Smith Street Band. Rug up and spend the Friday and Saturday on the slopes all day and jamming all night.
