Thredbo Resort Announces Closing Day “Two Weeks Ahead of the Regular Schedule

Thredbo Resort, a renowned Australian ski destination, made an announcement on September 17th, stating that it would cease skiing and riding operations as of September 18th.

In the caption:

“The time has arrived, and we are officially concluding the winter 2023 skiing and snowboarding season, wrapping it up two weeks earlier than anticipated🤍⛄️

Mother Nature certainly kept us on our toes, but this season brought us countless magical moments! None of this would have been possible without our incredible staff and guests! It’s our people who make Thredbo truly special, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you 🌟

Starting tomorrow, the ski lifts won’t be in operation for skiing and snowboarding access. However, the Kosciuszko Chairlift will continue to run, providing access for backcountry exploration, snowshoeing, and scenic adventures in the meantime.”

Although not explicitly mentioned in the post, the early closure is likely due to a shortage of snow. Thredbo’s web cameras currently reveal extensive areas of grass interspersed with small patches of snow. Today, the Kosciuszko Chairlift remained open for “backcountry, snowshoeing, and scenic adventures.

In spite of occasional fleeting snowfall, Thredbo faced significant challenges during the Australian winter due to low snowfall and unseasonably warm temperatures. The resort had to delay its season opening, pushing back the commencement of winter operations from the originally scheduled date of June 10th.

Meanwhile, other Australian resorts, including Hotham, Mt. Buller, Mt. Baw Baw, and Selwyn, have already concluded their winter operations. However, the nation’s largest resort, Perisher, remains open.

When examining Australia’s seasonal temperature and precipitation data, the early closures become understandable. The past winter marked Australia’s warmest on record, and elevated areas of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, where several Australian ski resorts are located, experienced snow depths that haven’t been so low in 17 years.
