We will continue to take bookings for Snow Season 2020 and we recommend booking your lift passes with Thredbo prior to arrival. Please note that while lift passes may be sold out for some periods later in the season, it is quite likely that more passes will be available as snow cover improves or government restrictions are lifted. To provide reassurance for guests we have introduced some special terms and conditions for COVID19 affected bookings which will allow flexibility for existing bookings and provide comfort if you are considering booking for the season.

Some Village facilities and restaurants are closed or are limited in their service. Check the current Village Dining guide. Please note this will change each week. Shops like the Supermarket, Bakery, Pharmacy and Newsagent remain open but have social distancing and hygeine restrictions in place and possibly modified hours of operation.

At the Lantern Thredbo we are following the recommendations from NSW Health and Safe Work Australia taking measures to allow for social distancing requirements and adequate resources for personal hygiene so our apartments are a safe destination for our guests.

In regard to our current operation we are undertaking the following measures to maintain a healthy environment for all.

  • We use  a natural based hospital grade disinfectant and will continue to disinfect all surfaces when cleaning our apartments. 
  • Aerosol disinfectants are also used throughout properties during cleaning.
  • Our diligent cleaning team have received additional training to ensure they are taking appropriate steps with their own personal hygiene including frequent hand washing and of course self-isolation in the event of the onset on any symptoms.
  • We have increased our cleaning schedules in all public areas with a particular focus on hand railings, bathrooms and doors.
  • Our reception procedures will  be modified to provide safe distancing for both check in and departure. 

We will continue to monitor Government advice on  procedures and restrictions during this  outbreak. We understand that conditions and government restrictions are changing quickly and we will continue to respond to these changes as they arise.   If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at bookings@lantern.com.au
