The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW since 2001 and has helped the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) raise in excess of $7 million for research into a cure for childhood cancer.

All monies raised by SWCCF goes to childhood cancer research programs and support of children with cancer. The aim of the Snowy Ride was to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia into raising money for research into childhood cancer and its side effects and to give the local volunteer organisations of the Snowy mountains area the chance to raise money for their own communities.

The Mass Ride

Weather permitting the mass ride will start at 3.30pm at the Bullocks Flat Ski Tube (location marked on Snowy Ride map). It’s a great way to finish the Snowy Ride as the reception you get arriving in Thredbo is inspirational. A bit of a tradition of dressing up has developed over the last few years. It’s a lot of fun and we appreciate the effort. Remember you still need to be wearing full riding gear. Riders in costumes will be at the front of the ride. Please ensure you arrive by 3pm if you intend to take part in the ride.



Stay tuned… 


Presentation & Prize

Presentation and prize draw is on in Thredbo Village Square around 5pm, straight after the Mass Ride finishes. But we encourage you to hang around and enjoy the great entertainment on offer in various venues.



We’re inviting you to our special Friday Night Dinner which will feature our Snowy Ride Ambassadors Stuart Diver and Darren Skuse as well as Dr Toby Trahair from Sydney Children’s Hospital. Stay tuned..
