Never Mind the Skiing, Aprés is Back at Thredbo!

More good news, aprés is back at Thredbo for 2021 with first call Thursday through Saturday looking set to be Corona Sunsets on the Merrits Mountain House Deck.

Hands up who missed aprés more than skiing or boarding? It’s OK, no one is looking, you can admit it.

Thredbo is of course as famous for its aprés scene and events generally as the skiing and riding with Australia’s biggest alpine village. Traditionally that meant aprés down below in the village, but the new gondola has opened up the options.

That includes Aprés-ski for non skiers, just ride up as a pedestrian on the gondy!

From as early as Opening Weekend onwards (regardless of snow conditions) guests can jump onto the Merritts Gondola, Australia’s only alpine gondola and head to Merritts Mountain House Deck for a line-up of season-long entertainment. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons, Corona Sunsets will be delivering tunes and good times on the Merritts Deck.

The Corona Sunsets start at 1:00PM, if you get too carried away to ski down last download is 4:15PM.

Or if you are not skiing/riding you can just come up and down as scenic passenger for $45 (book it on the link). Uploading is available from 11AM – 3PM.

Thredbo’s Alpine Bar will be bringing back everything après as live music returns. At “Alpine Après, presented by Heineken,” tunes, firepits and good times will be in plentiful supply on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights throughout the season.  

Moving beyond après and into the evening, Thredbo’s best kept secret, Segreto has been re-imagined. Now a late-night supper club, patrons can expect speak-easy vibes into the late hours of the evening. The menu has been carefully crafted with twilight grazing in mind; think delectable deli selections and antipasto platters accompanied by rich reds, delicate whites and hand-crafted cocktails.
