3 Days | 6 Stages
The Snowies MTB Festival will be back in 2019 with the iconic Snowy Mountains playing host to the ultimate mountain bike experience. In 2019 it is planned to add a NEW STAGE to the festival taking in the *All New Thredbo Valley Trail from Jindabyne to Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa. This is by far one of the newest and most exciting trails found anywhere in the world and will add an all new XC experience for riders. Plans are subject to the completion of the trail in late 2018, however, currently all is on track for the opening.
This means the festival will be three FULL days of riding in the Snowies starting on Friday morning and finishing up at around 2pm on Sunday afternoon. Riders will be challenged with 6 stages across 3 days in rugged mountain terrain. Starting at an altitude of 1260m, riders will be tested with over 100k of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, a mammoth ascent, and some awe inspiring downhills, making this one of Australia’s most iconic mountain bike stage races.
This event also includes the ‘Thredbo All Mountain Descent’ with a chairlift to the top of Eagles Nest in the shadow of Australia's highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko followed by 6ks of epic cross country downhill.
Join us in what is arguably Australia's most affordable and logistically convenient MTB stage race where you can just relax and focus on the epic riding that only the iconic Snowies can deliver.
*Important Note: If the opening of the TVT from Jindabyne to Lake Crackenback is delayed for any reason the festival will revert to the 2018 format with 5 stages across the three days.
