Hiking, Riding & Everything In Between: Five Top Things To Do This Opening Weekend!

Posted on 15 Nov, 2023 in Activities

There’s only a few days to go until opening weekend and it set to be one of our biggest and best ever! If you’re visiting us this weekend, here’s 5 things you don’t want to miss…

1. Shred all the hero trails!

Will this be our best MTB opening weekend ever? This weekend, we’re going to have our highest number of trails open ever on an opening weekend. All our trails are ready to ride side from Upper All Mountain! Plus we’ll have all four MTB lifts spinning. This means you can explore almost the entire mountain on your bike from day one. Hope you’ve got the bike ready!

2. Be the first to reach Australia’s Highest Point this summer!

This weekend is the start for our hiking season. That means it’s your opportunity to be one of the first to summit Mt Kosciuszko and reach Australia’s Highest Point this summer! Enjoy a scenic ride on the Kosciuszko Chairlift before embarking on a stunning family-friendly hike to the top. The mountain looks stunning at this time of year so keep your eye out for wildflowers and even some native wildlife along the way.

3. Kick back and enjoy live music & entertainment

Get ready to cap off an awesome first day on the mountain with a massive afternoon of live music and entertainment. First up, head to the Pub deck to kick back in the sunshine with DJ Fin who will be spinning tunes from 3PM to 6:30PM.

After the deck session, head in to the Kosciuszko Room at 5PM for a free MTB movie screening of Nothing’s For Free. The feature film chronicles the birth and legacy of freeride MTB with the pioneers, visionaries, and industry masterminds that pushed the sport to where it is today. Check out the trailer here.

4. Try out the brand-new Alpine Pizzeria

Introducing Thredbo’s newest dining hotspot in the heart of the village! The new Alpine Pizzeria is opening for the first time this weekend with a huge menu of delicious pizzas. We’re calling it now… This will be everyone’s new favourite spot to refuel after big adventure days this summer.

Five. Win next level prizes!

Keep an eye on the @thredbomtb Instagram this weekend for your chance to win a ride with MTB legend Jack Moir. Jack will be stashing a bunch of prizes around the MTB Park including a limited edition signed Monster Energy Gold can. Whoever finds the can, wins laps with Moi Moi this Sunday!
