Thredbo Takes Gravity Riding to the Next Level
Thredbo is expanding the Mountain Bike Park this summer with the new Cruiser area, unveiling three gravity trails for beginners and intermediates; Paparazzi, Grasshopper and Easy Rider. Additionally, the Cruiser Chairlift and Gunbarrel Chairlift will both have new state-of-the-art bike carriers installed, increasing Gunbarrel’s uplift capacity by over forty per cent.
As Australia’s premier biking destination, the Thredbo MTB Park will now cover over forty kilometres of Australia’s best terrain accessible by four lifts, making it the country’s only lift-accessed gravity trails. In addition to the new developments, everyone’s favourite trails will be returning this summer including Sidewinder, Ricochet and the infamous Cannonball Downhill as well as multiple cross-country trails and a fast-flowing pump track.
MTB Business Manager, Tim Windshuttle said the Cruiser area is set to be a game changer for riders of all abilities.
“Not only does the new Cruiser area ensure that beginner and intermediate riders can access more of the mountain, it’s also been designed with skill progression in mind so we’re excited to see guests take their gravity riding to the next level,” said Mr Windshuttle.
