What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in skiing, snowboarding, and anything snow related. All skill levels are welcome.

Objective: to establish a good bunch of people who head down regularly on Fridays late afternoon or early evening from Sydney to either Thredbo, Perisher or Jindabyne. Then enjoy the snow on Saturday (full day) and Sunday (full day), but going back to Sydney on Sunday before midday. Hence, this group is aimed to busy outdoor and snow enthusiasts who would like to dedicate a couple or few weekends during the snow season.

My goal for this group is to establish common platform for Sydney based busy outdoor and snow enthusiasts, to provide you with opportunity to:

1. Join a weekend trip organised by others, this way whenever someone is planning a trip they can simply post to the group and invite others to come along for the ride from Sydney to Thredbo, Perishe, or simply just Jindabyne area. Ideally it'll make the drive go a bit quicker and we can also share local knowledge about best skiing and snowboarding spots on a given day.
2. Organise a weekend trip for others.

To be aligned on expectations, limitations and our focus:

• This group is run as social adventure (it’s not a business), and we offer the best prices possible (all accommodation costs etc. are exactly what it costs us to secure the place/s)

• We are using our local knowledge of Thredbo and Jindabyne properties markets to secure best price possible, but we are aiming for best locations (i.e. Thredbo village and walking distance to Lift, Bars, Restaurants, Swimming pool etc.), hence our group is not really aimed for a budget travel

• Because of the local knowledge, we have availability when everyone else is full

• We often can share valuable advice, so you can learn from our mistakes and have great time in the snow

• Additional optional discounts on lift passes, lessons, etc. can be secured leveraging our local contacts

• Optional advice on how to secure discounts on ski / snowboard / clothing hire.

Skiing and snowboarding is all about enjoying nature and adrenaline, hence doing something you love in an awesome place with good bunch of people.

Looking forward to exploring the winter weekends in Snowy Mountains

30 AUG - 1 SEP (2.5 days) Sydney-Thredbo Fri after work to Sun weekend snow trip

Skiing and snowboarding are all about enjoying nature and adrenaline, hence doing something you love in an awesome place with great people! This is an opportunity for anyone interested in skiing, snowboarding, and anything snow related. All skill levels are welcome! This weekend trip is aimed for busy but adventurers Sydney based skiers and snowboarders who would like to leave Sydney on Friday around (4:30pm-5:30pm) after work, and then enjoy Thredbo on Saturday (the whole day) and Sunday (the whole day), and come back to Sydney on Sunday evening, so everyone can go to work on Monday morning if needed 😄 You are welcome to join us in one of our cars or take your car, so we can organise a bigger group :-) We are flexible about accommodation options; we could organise something as a group, or independently and individually. Happy to hear your thoughts and suggestions 👍 We are usually going for something in the Thredbo village itself, and that means convenience (walking distance to ski lifts etc.), but also comes at cost of around $175 per person per night (~$350 per person for the weekend). Additionally, you would typically need to pay $280 for two full days lifts pass. Please contact me via Private Message directly (at least 9 days before the trip) to secure discounted lift pass for $244 (+$5 for the magnetic 'MyThredbo' RFID Card). For discounted lift passes as well as equipment rental options (if required), please refer to the comments from other members below this event page. I am posting this group to meet other outdoor snow enthusiasts who are keen to leave Sydney on a Friday afternoon to enjoy Thredbo / Perisher over winter weekend, and be back in Sydney on Sunday before midnight. And, I am happy to drive to Snowy Mountains every now and then (weekends only) through the skiing season. Feel free to give me a call, send me a note, or simply join the above Meetup group to carry the baton further. Again, we are leaving Sydney on Friday after work (late afternoon/early evening) in order to reach Thredbo before midnight, and coming back to Sydney on Sunday, after the skilifts are closing in Thredbo - 4:30pm. You are welcome to join. Looking forward to exploring the winter weekends in Snowy Mountains - Kosciuszko National Park over a weekend away from Sydney :-) Carpooling will be organised closer the time of departure once we finalise numbers.
