Trails & Tracks
MTB Season opens 16 November 2019
Thredbo Mountain Bike Park is the home of epic alpine riding. There’s chairlift accessed gravity trails, skills parks, a linked network of cross country trails, a fast flowing pump track and a team of qualified guides to take your riding to the next level. The Thredbo All–Mountain Trail is open on the lower half but once the snow clears it will start above the tree-line with unrivalled views down the Thredbo Valley, with riders descending 10km to the valley floor. There’s lots to love about biking in Thredbo this summer.
Starting at 1930m above sea level, riders are taken over 10km down through the impressive mountain landscape with uninterrupted views of the Thredbo Valley. Although not as steep as the Flow Trail, it offers intermediate and advanced riders plenty of variety and line choice. Once at the Creek Station, riders can climb back to the Kosciuszko Express, take the easy cruise via Friday Drive or continue along the Thredbo Valley Track.
Perfect for those looking for an introduction into downhill riding or a warm up for the Cannonball. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift, riders roll through single-track with never ending rollers and smooth berms to keep the flow going, it is a blast top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a more mellow ride, but still providing the adrenalin rush of downhilling.
Thredbo’s signature trail, descending 600m vertically through the tree-lined Supertrail slopes. Cannonball tests riders with off-camber roots, rock drops, jumps, wall-ride and other technical features that the gravity specialists dream about. Recent upgrades include more fall-line added along with some big jumps in the mix for the freeriders. *Full-face helmet compulsory.
Home Run gives riders a direct route back to the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift from the All-Mountain Trail. From Creek Station, head across the river on the summer road, up a small pinch climb to the top of the bobsled before veering right to descend on cruisey flow with deep berms back to the chairlift for your next lap.
Easy street gives riders green run access to the Flow Trail. Starting at the top of the Gunbarrel Express Chairlift, it follows the winter ‘Catwalk’ and is a great starting point for those new to the mountain bike park. Featuring easy traverses, small rollers and a steady gradient, it will get you warmed up before tackling the intermediate trails.
THREDBO VALLEY TRACK

This impressive shared use trail takes riders down the picturesque Thredbo Valley and includes some amazing suspension bridges.

The section to the third bridge (5km return) or Rangers Station (12km return) is perfect for the beginners with some climbing involved on the return trip. Continuing downriver there are forests and open woodlands with smooth descents and short uphill bursts with rollers to keep the flow going. Riders can continue onto the Diggings (14.5km one way), Lake Crackenback (20km one way) or the whole way to Gaden Trout Hatchery near Jindabyne (35km one way).
