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.
