About Night Skiing in the Snowy Mountains 

Night skiing is an exhilarating and unique alpine experience, perfect for skiiers having too much fun to stop when the sun goes down. Hit the slopes at sunset, twilight and into the night on selected days.

At Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes, you can enjoy night skiing and snowboarding on Tuesday and Saturday nights from July to September. The snowfields are flooded with light between 6.00pm and 9.00pm. A fireworks display is held every Tuesday night in Perisher in Front Valley at 7.20pm. There's also free entertainment the whole family can enjoy.

Fireworks in Perisher

Thredbo also offers a magical twilight skiing experience in July and August. Ski the turns down Friday Flat until 7.00pm every Thursday and Saturday night. Don’t miss the flare run on Saturday nights, when advanced skiers and snowboarders take to the slopes with flaming flares, creating an extraordinary light show as they glide down the slope. It's a Thredbo tradition that has been running for more than 25 years.

On Thursday nights kids also get a turn, with LED lights given out to them as they decend the gentle slopes from the Easy Does It Chairlift. 

From early June until early October, snow season is in full swing in the Snowy Mountains. Peak season is late July and August, when there’s no shortage of snow-friendly activities to explore. Snow falls can start as early as April and run as late as December, so it’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast and resort schedules before booking.
