For years Thredbo has been known as the home for the expert downhill mountain bike rider who wants to tackle the steep, challenging trails from the top of the mountain using the chairlift for access. ?That is all set to change now with the first in a series of new trail?developments?that will see Thredbo become one of the country's leading mountain bike riding destinations with terrain and trails to suit all levels of rider.
This summer, the first section of the Thredbo Valley Track is open running ?from Friday Flat to the ?Ranger Station offering family friendly riding in a spectacular setting. On the mountain the new Flow Track will open on December 22nd offering the thrill of chairlift accessed downhill riding without the spill. ?This easier track from the top of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift will allow anyone who is a competent cross country rider to take?their?own bike and ride the chairlift. ?With new pricing for both chairlift access and bike hire, if you don't have your own bike you can rent a state of the art downhill bike from Thredbo MTB in the valley terminal ticket office.
