Baby, you’re a firework!

So we didn’t plan for it, but the weekend we stayed in Thredbo also happened to be ‘Opening Weekend’ for the snow season. It’s a shame the weather Gods never got that memo, and the snow machines only really made enough to build a half-arsed snowman. Although there wasn’t enough snow for the field to officially open, and not as many people around as they would usually expect, Thredbo still celebrated Opening Weekend with an ice sculpture, family-friendly activities, Sneaky Sound System concert, and fireworks!

Each bang echoed off the snow-capped mountains, we had a great view from our balcony, and the fireworks themselves were pretty impressive.

Much of the crowd had likely been drinking most of the day, due to a lack of skiing or snowboarding opportunities, but everyone was well-behaved, and just had a good time. We picked ourselves up a little Carona bucket–filled with ice, 4 bottles of Corona, a bottle opener, and some lime slices–which, for $16 was a complete bargain, and enjoyed the show.
