For many the name Thredbo is synonymous with winter holidays, skiing on crisp white snow beneath clear blue skies. But for many it has been home all year round, even through storms, blizzards, bushfire and landslides. Pioneers and trailblazers from Australia and from Europe, many fleeing persecution during and after the second world war, made Thredbo the place to be. Turning an isolated snowy range into a premier destination took vision, determination and resolve in the face of harsh elements. Generations have enjoyed the slopes of Thredbo. This colourful history reveals Thredbo as not just a resort but as an expression of multicultural ethos, built by immigrant pioneers, enjoyed by generations of Australians.
