Check out some of the advanced gravity trails we’ll be hitting during the MTB Masterclass Clinic…

All Mountain

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.

Cannonball Downhill

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.
