Night Skiing and Snowboarding

You’ll want to maximise your time on the slopes in the Snowy Mountains, and the skiing and snowboarding doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Hit the runs at sunset, twilight and into the night on selected days throughout the snow season and enjoy a unique and exhilarating alpine experience.



Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes offer 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.

Perisher Night Skiing - Snowy Mountains


Thredbo offers a magical twilight skiing experience in July and August, with the opportunity to ski and snowboard 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.

It's a Thredbo tradition that has been running for more than 30 years. If you would like to take part you can take the participation test at 4pm at the Kosciuszko Express each Saturday. On Thursday nights from the 28 June to 27 September kids also get a turn, with flashing LED lights given out as they descend the gentle slopes from the Easy Does It Chairlift.
