Thredbo Launches Vertical Metres Challenge To Take You Heli-Skiing In Canada

Thredbo Resort today announced the return of its Vertical Metres Challenge, offering skiers and snowboarders the chance to win a once in a lifetime heli-skiing experience in Kootenay, Canada thanks to its collaboration with CMH Heli-Skiing, Travelplan Ski and Air Canada.

To take on the challenge and be in the running for this incredible prize, skiers and snowboarders must clock over 5000 vertical metres on the mountain in one day throughout Thredbo’s 2022 winter season. Metres will be automatically recorded on guest lift pass profiles, and each day that a rider hits the 5000-metre mark equates to an additional entry.

With Australia’s longest runs, Thredbo offers skiers and snowboarders the ultimate terrain to push themselves to hit the big 5K, and with an adventure of a lifetime worth $28,500 on the line, there has never been more reason to hit the slopes.

CMH is the world’s leading heli-skiing operator, offering every skier and boarder’s dream with over 100,000 feet of untouched powder and complete isolation in the mountains. 

The prize (valued at $28,500 AUD) includes:

  • Two return Air Canada economy flights to Kelowna Airport from the winner’s nearest capital city in Australia (flight associated taxes are included). Airfare is valid for a departure from 1 February 23 to 27 February 23 (last possible day to depart Australia to arrive on time at CMH Kootenay).
