When you think of a journey in Australia, your mind begins to fill with visions of surf trips along the coast. Driving over dunes in search of the perfect wave whilst the sun beats down overhead, scorching the sand. You certainly don’t think of a journey on snow and even less so of one into the untouched and relatively unexplored Main Range of the Australian high country. But, that’s just what we did, we took the road less traveled. We tread new ground, searched until the point of absolute exhaustion and nearly came away second best to mother nature. However, in the process, we scored an ultimate adventure experienced by few and came away with an epic story to tell.Read More
Winter has finally come, which means there’s no better opportunity for Corona to partner up with Thredbo to bring snow and music enthusiasts a gig, live and loud on the slopes, featuring a headline performance from Sydney soul-rockers, The Preatures.
As part of Corona Sunsets, The Thredbo Alpine Hotel Poolside will host The Preatures and a string of other live acts including Polish Club under the alpine sky on Saturday the 26th of August. No need to break open the piggy bank either, as this gig is completely free of charge.
Coming in hot before their massive national tour in support of their sophomore album Girlhood, The Preatures will take centre stage, providing crowds with a thrilling combination of rock and soul. The Preatures rose to fame with their single ‘Is This How You Feel?’ and have been dominating the airways ever since. This is the perfect chance to catch the four-piece perform songs from Girlhood – the highly praised follow-up to their 2014 hit album Blue Planet Eyes.
It’s not the first time Corona has collaborated with The Preatures; they played a run of exclusive live and stripped back acoustic shows for us in 2015 to rave reviews, and we’re stoked to be presenting them again this winter at Thredbo!
The self-proclaimed sweatiest band in Sydney, Polish Club, will get the stage simmering for The Preatures from 4:30pm, with DJ Radge keeping the crowd vibing between [...]
New Zealand’s Southern Alps are pristine and remote; like nowhere you’ve ever shredded before. It’s a surreal experience being charted to the very top of the mountains via your own personal helicopter before carving through the freshest powder imaginable, surrounded by the most mind-blowing views. It’s certainly an occurrence very few get to encounter. We recently sent the Burton snowboard team, along with our pal Vaughan Brookfield, up the mountain to capture the full NZ backcountry experience!Read More
A far cry from the beaches of Mexico, we’ve partnered with Thredbo to bring snow-goers and music-lovers a free concert series boasting killer performances from some of Australia’s top acts. The Thredbo Village Square will play host to the series under the alpine sky, with each event featuring a pop-up beer garden serving ice-cold cerzervas. All gigs will be all-ages and completely free of charge, running from 6pm-9.30pm – the perfect end to a day on the slopes.Read More
Steep White – More kiwi than a flat white.
Steep White Hut is higher, more toasty and has a better 360-degree view than your average alpine log cabin. In Mid-October 2014 we ventured to this epic part of New Zealand which stands 1800 metres above sea level and is situated deep in hobbit country near Glenorchy, in the deep south of New Zealand’s southern alps.Read More
