Okay, it may have been the start of the Australian ski season, but the Queen’s Birthday long weekend is never really renowned for dumpings of snow!

Instead there is always so much going on in each of the ski fields that are gearing up for their seasons ahead including some pretty fabulous walks to the top of the mountains especially on bluebird days.

We ventured down to Thredbo over the weekend and while the snow wasn’t dumping the vibe was certainly thumping with events, gigs, ice sculptures, bobsledding, a Heiniken party, a Tinder (umm, hosted) party 😂😂 and a massive fireworks display – all part of what has become a really good fun weekend.

In between the social side of the ski season it was just so nice to wander around and get the chair lift up to the Eagle’s Nest cafe and have a hot chocolate and look out to what will, in a week or two‘s time be full of snow. The team at Thredbo how old are so laid-back and relaxed and possibly full of some of the coolest ski peeps around.

The Denham, Keller, Schuss Bar and Thredbo Alpine Hotel were thumping. We chose to stay at the Thredbo Alpine apartments – which were perfect as there were six of us and they’re great size – check them out.

So, good luck for the season all you ski bunnies!

Take a look at some of my pics & you’ll get the idea.
