On our third and final day in Thredbo, we decided to brave the cold and fog, and head up the only operating chairlift, not really sure what we would find at the top.
What we found, aside from thick fog, was ‘Eagles Nest‘ – the highest restaurant in Australia. So we popped in and warmed up with home-made scones and jam, and a hot chocolate each.
Before long, the fog began to clear, so we decided to go for a wander along the Kosciuszko Walk, which lead us to the mountain lookout. It was absolutely stunning, we quickly forgot about the cold!

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!

Because we arrived in Thredbo when it was dark out, we had no idea really what to expect come morning.
So I was pleasantly surprised to wake up on Saturday morning to this gorgeous view! It was icy cold outside, but the skies were blue and the sun was shining – the perfect Winters day, in my book.
Because we weren’t able to snowboard on this trip, due to lack of actual snow, we decided to make the most of our surroundings by checking out the sights and just enjoying the peace and quiet of this little ski resort.

This year we decided to extend our July long weekend, and also celebrate our nine-year anniversary by spending a few days in Thredbo, NSW.
That very same weekend was also opening weekend for the snow season, but unfortunately a lack of actual snow meant that we were unable to get out our snowboards and carve up the mountain. Not that I could anyways, but at least I had planned on trying.
The drive to Thredbo took us longer than we expected, and by the time we arrived it was pitch dark. But, we got to see the Victorian countryside on our way, which was beautiful, and reminded me of home.
