Night skiing & snowboarding at the Snowies

Lights, flare runs and fireworks. Skiing and snowboarding under the stars is a magical experience, which also allows skiers and snowboarders to make the most of their time on the slopes.


Lights on at Perisher

Enjoy an unforgettable experience at Perisher, which has night skiing at both Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes on selected evenings from late June to mid-September. Neon Night Skiing and fireworks bring the valley to life on selected nights in Front Valley around the Village Eight Express. Wear your brightest neon gear to brighten the night even more. 

Smiggin Holes also offers free night skiing and boarding for kids every Wednesday. Rug up your budding snow bunnies and they’ll have a ball night skiing around Harry's and Herman's Carpet.

Thredbo flares up

Thredbo is famous for its Saturday night fireworks and flare run, as well as the famous led by a team of expert skiers and snowboarders who light up the Supertrail with flares every Saturday night. The fireworks show is magnificent against the glow of the snow and stars overhead. It’s the perfect way to kick off a Saturday night with family and friends.

Flare Run, Thredbo

Kids have their own show to participate in every Thursday. As the sun sets, kids and snow sports instructors hop on the Easy Does It Chairlift and then snake down the slope with special flashing LED flares. Once everyone is at the bottom, fireworks light up the sky in a riot of colour.
