Snowies MTB Festival 2024
February 9, 2024 – February 11, 2024 GMT
IT’S LUXURY AND ATMOSPHERE ALL THE WAY!….
Start and finish your journey at our host resort, Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, nestled in the Snowy Mountains heartland. Yes, your journey will be a hardcore ride, but before and after, it’s luxury all the way with all the facilities you’d expect at one of the country’s most beloved 4.5-star resorts. And it’s an even better base for all your family and friends who’ll be there to cheer you on.
YOUR ULTIMATE MTB HIGH!…..
And now we’ve got your race base sorted. Get ready for an endorphin overload as you head out onto your ultimate MTB high.
Each stage has its own unique high-country character and terrain and includes the perfect mix of fast-flowing single track, downhill descents, undulating climbs, techy challenges and groomed trails, including ?m of vertical climbing and descending. If riding up hills and barrelling down descents at full speed tickles your fancy, it’s time to saddle up and immerse yourself in the Snowies High Country.
AND THE KICKER… a one-off chance to ride the FULL LENGTH of the Iconic Thredbo Valley Track on CLOSED TRAILS.
This legendary trail is a MUST DO on your MTB bucket list, and Stage 3 Snowies Legends Descent is the only time you can experience, without interruption, the pure exhilaration of 42km of sheer Mountain Bike heaven from top to bottom.
Throughout the stages, immerse yourself in the Thredbo Valley as you traverse the banks of the Thredbo River on super fun trails that climb and descend on an epic high-country roller-coaster ride. Ride the trails overlooking Lake Jindabyne, and take in the snow gum forests pierced by crystal clear mountain streams as well as Alpine meadows and granite outcrops. And even race our very own ‘Man from Snowy River’ on the trail network from Lake Crackenback Resort, the launchpad, to some of the world’s best rideable terrain.
Forget the tarmac and gravel. This is unadulterated mountain bike heaven in the heart of the Snowies.
A STAGE RACE… WITH EPIC RIDING… BUT NO LABOROIOUS TRAVEL AND MOVING?
That’s right you asked, and the Snowies have delivered. This world class riding is all within a 18km radius. And, for stages away from the resort there’s a bus to transport you and your bike the 10 minutes to your destination. So, you, your family and your mates can just sit back and enjoy the atmos’ and mountain air.

With the Alpine Larder just a few pedal pushes from the finish line we’ve got the Social Scene covered. Regarded as one of the most relaxed and welcoming MTB stage races in Australia you’ll have as much fun off the bike as you do on it. Enjoy time with your mates, make some new ones and share your war stories over a bevvy or two.
We all agree, a beer and pizza always tastes so much better surrounded by your best mates, a mountain vista and fresh mountain air, after a big day pushing out the k’s on the trails.

Let’s hope you can tear your family and mates away long enough to cheer you on your way 😊
PLUS.. you better make sure you leave some time to explore more of the Snowies playground. Climb to the top of Australia’s highest peak, ride horses through untouched bushland and fish in crystal clear streams. Then refuel classic country pubs, boutique wineries and trendy craft breweries.
