In 1955, a Czechoslovakian with great vision saw the potential for an all year mountain resort. Tony Sponar was working as a Hydrographer for the Snowy Mountains Authority and was captivated by the snow-capped peaks and saw great prospects for a ski hill. Sponar had been a ski instructor at the renowned St Anton Resort, Austria from 1941 to 1948. He saw Thredbo developing as an Australian equivalent, with good vertical terrain and an electric atmosphere to match.
