Via the Alpine Way–  A spectacular, tar sealed road full of twists and turns. If travelling during winter, Snow chains are required. Local road information can be found as noted above in Road Conditions.

From Jindabyne to Thredbo.

Snow chains are not required, but it is advisable to carry them. You can hire chains in many places, but Cooma, Berridale and Jindabyne. YOU VERY VERY rarely need chains outside of the Alpine Way. It is advised you actually do a “dry run” in fitting your chains. At the risk of stating the obvious, tyre size is important .So don’t borrow chains unless they are your tyre size.

YOU MUST carry properly fitting chains to travel to Persiher.( 4 wheeel drives excepted)

Parking in Thredbo

Thredbo has 2500 car parking spaces, and parking it is FREE . Some  parking areas are for overnight parking, other areas for day trippers.

Parking is free at Perisher, Smiggins and Guthega, but overnight parking IS NOT allowed. You must be out by midnight.
