There is  more great news for families this winter with  the change in age restrictions for child passes lifting from 14 years to 17 years.  So even if your teenagers eat twice as much as you do they will still be eligible for child prices on all lift pass and equipment hire products! Also new for 2014 is a Super Terrain Park for those who want to   jib and jump their way across the mountain,  this park will be the longest in Australia bringing slope-style on steroids to Thredbo. Thredbo has also announced a couple of  discounted Lift passes in their Winter Games Promotion  that you can buy up until the end of February: A 6 day, any day pass for winter 2014 At only $499  this pass is great value whether you plan to come for 2 or 3 weekends throughout the season or just come for a whole week.  You must buy it before February 28th.
