The World Ski Awards, held at A-ROSA Kitzbhel in Austria recently, awarded Thredbo's luxury Rockpool Lodge the prestigious title of Best Ski Chalet in Australia.
The World Ski Awards are the 'sister awards' of the World Travel Awards commonly known as the Oscars of the travel industry.
The best in the global ski tourism industry were celebrated at the inaugural World Ski Awards this year and Rockpool shared the stage with the world's best including The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Colorado, The Vale in Niseko and The Carlton Hotel in St Moritz who all won their own categories.
"We are very proud of this achievement" says Gregg Quinn, general manager of Visit Snowy Mountains. "To be recognised with such a prestigious International award for our guest services, facilities and quality of accommodation is something that we strive to achieve everyday"
Sion Rapson, managing director of the World Ski Awards also said, "The reaction to this - our inaugural event - has been phenomenal. Hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers across the globe have voted for their favourite resorts, chalets and hotels. Tonight's winners can take enormous pride - they have been voted the finest in their class."
