The ‘Black Bear’ is also famous for its authentic bar and licensed restaurant featuring Imported beer on tap and an extensive selection of local and imported schnapps.
The lodge is within an easy 2 minute walk to shops, restaurants and nightlife, and is a shorter walk to the winter shuttle bus stop for access to all skiing and parking areas. You are right in the heart of all the skiing and boarding action on the longest ski runs and the most legendary ‘Black Diamond’ runs of any resort in Australia, with a vertical drop of over twice that found elsewhere.
Some recent improvements have been carried out to guest rooms and the restaurant and bar areas, which has given Black Bear Inn Thredbo a breath of fresh air, and the atmosphere is alive and buzzing once again
