‘Free’ skiing deal as snow buckets down

WRITTEN BY EDITOR • AUGUST 22, 2013

  • With the snow finally bucketing down in the mountains, NSW ski resort Thredbo has announced free skiing for the rest of this year for those who buy a new season ticket.

    The resort’s ‘Thredbo 365’ season pass for 2013/14 must be bought before the end of August to be eligible.

    After a sluggish start to the season, resorts on both sides of the mountains are copping a late-season flourish with Perisher’s base at around 170cm and eleven out of 12 lifts at Mount Hotham online.

    The pass, which costs $749 for adults and $439 for children/seniors, gives year-round access to Thredbo’s facilities, such as mountain biking trails and its bobsled track.

    For more information see thredbo.com.au and for detailed snow forecasts visit snowatch.com.au

    Top Girls’ Road Trips Thredbo

    WRITTEN BY ADMIN • SEPTEMBER 21, 2010

    Whether you’re heading from Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne or elsewhere, a drive to the snow is the way to go. This is one journey that’s all about the destination. One of my first holidays with the girls was to Thredbo the year after I left high school. We rented a tiny short-term rental apartment that slept five of us and I recall laughing so much that Continue reading

    Gourmet Experience #093 Dine mile high at Merritts Mountain House

    WRITTEN BY ADMIN • APRIL 1, 2010

    The lunch stop during a day on the slopes used to be nothing to look forward to. Pre-made sangas or chips and gravy were the best on offer in clinical cafeterias charging three times the standard price.

    Leave the wet gear on the heaters, the kids in the cafeteria and the snow outside.

    The family-run Merritts Moutain House on Thredbo Mountain is a point of difference. Step inside the faux-European lodge and your frosty nose will thaw out immediately.

    A little bit of snow doesn’t stop this bistro from serving superb food at 1225m. Each day staff load 200 boxes of fresh produce onto the chairlift – they had to stop stocking pink cupcakes when the crows started attacking the baked goods on the way up.

    Old-fashioned winter comfort food including lamb shanks and winter vegetables, gourmet hot pot pies and old-fashion macaroni and cheese easily turns the lunchtime stop into a long afternoon feast.

    Hardcore skiers can grab wraps, strudel and mulled wine to go but savvy diners will book out the private dining room in the back. An a la carte meal away from the crowds in this intimate space is a dining experience that’s bordering on sublime.

    Leave the wet gear on the heaters, the kids in the cafeteria and the snow outside.

    Where: Merrits chair lift, Thredbo Mountain NSW. (02) 6457 6084.

    Did you know: The metre-wide pan used at Merritts to roast lamb shanks and vegetables was specially imported from Germany.
