Thredbo, located within the Kosciuszko National Park, boasts some of Australia’s highest mountains between 1365 to 1930 metres above sea level. Thredbo was originally used by graziers, when, in 1955, Tony Sponar had a great vision to transform the mountains into a ski hill. Sponar had been a ski instructor at the renowned St. Anton Resort, Austria from 1941 to 1948 and saw Thredbo as the Australian equivalent, with good vertical terrain and buzzing ski village atmosphere.
