Good weather at the summit, but clouds were swirling around timberline to the west. Many, many people at the top.

Went back to the area in Feb 2015 for the Main Range Track. Great walk, but again more crowds...

Climbed to the top for Christmas only because I was working in the South Pacific and touring Australia for 3 weeks. Cool weather but lots of folks headed up. Used the express lift and then it was 1.5 hours to the summit.

Up the "summit walk" and down the beautiful "main range treck". Except for the summit area we were almost alone. Just wonderful.

Took the lift from Thredbo, hiked from there to the summit. 14.0 km total distance, 550 m elevation gain. An easy day, quick pace due to the elevated trail. Windy and foggy all day, and a couple very small patches of snow visible from the trail, quite late snow season here.

Still quite a bit of snow across the path. Wanted to return via the Main Ridge but snow and weather conditions prevented this

A fun and easy climb on a perfect day in NSW. Wonderful area. This was my 8th climb in the 7 Summits Climb for Alzheimer's project.

Hiked up from Charlotte Pass with Alexandra De Castro, very hot, a little windy a times, many bugs. Summit was pretty crowded with most people hiking from Thredbo. 18 km return trip.

Foggy, incredible windy day..many snow fields (unexpected:-) on track from Charlottes Pass. Summit reached approx. at 16:00. Met no people during the whole circle walk, just our Czech and Slovak group of 10. Return via boring old 4WD road (SummitWalk).

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2010


In my mind, Australia defied its reputation in many ways during my short visit. On the bright side, I enjoyed a fine cross country ski tour from Perisher to Rawson's Pass in gusty and whiteout conditions. The track alternated between dry fluffy powder and hard ice. Then it all cleared off for a brilliant calm summit.

BrookTroutLeiphartSki Thredbo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2000
I was able to hire snowshoes and ski poles in Thredbo ($30.00) and ride the Crackenback chairlift ($18.00). Dave Lindner from England had never been on snowshoes before (I told him never back up-do a 180 instead). Great hike all the way to the top on the new snow! Skied Thredbo the next day-they opened a week early!

Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2009


I hiked the road from Charlotte's Pass under blue skies and perfect weather. It was actually warmer than usual for this time of the year. I ran into a bit of snow near the summit but the track was mostly dry. It took me 4.5 hours R/T, including 30 mins to enjoy the views from the summit, which I had all to myself. It was a very enjoyable hike. The rocky tundra and views of the surrounding peaks are very scenic. (This is my 4th of the 8 7-summits.)

Flew the night before from Sydney (where I left my family) to Canberra, rented a car, slept a few hours at a motel on the road and was hiking at first light via Mt. Townsend and a loop back, total 6 hours, then drove back to Canberra, caught my flight back to Sydney and was having dinner with them that night.

AndrewSmythClimbed as a kid  Sucess!


I know I was 9 yo the first time I reached the top, in heavy snow in May School Hols I think? Went back the next year and there was no snow to speak of and it was like a walk down the road but very scenic, even for the eyes of a 10yo.

Beautiful weather and very crowded. Took wife on the chairlift from Thredbo and walked the trail in about 90 minutes. Great scenery with about 50 folks at the summit marker.
