The iconic Snowy Mountains are set to host the ultimate mountain bike experience in February 2016 where riders will be challenged with 5 stages across 3 days in rugged mountain terrain in the hunt for a massive $10,000 Prize Purse.

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.

In 2016 we add an all new stage with the ‘Thredbo All Mountain Descent’ including a chair ride to the top of Australia followed by 9ks of epic downhill on Thredbo’s new All Mountain Trails.

Join us in what is arguably Australia’s most affordable and logistically convenient stage race where you can just enjoy the epic riding that only the iconic Snowies can deliver.

Tackle all 5 stages as a solo or as a team of 2 or 3, OR choose to do the 45k marathon or 30k or 15k XC MTB only in this ‘not to be missed’ Mountain Bike Experience.


The festival includes 5 epic stages across 3 days aimed to test riders’ speed, endurance and technical ability to find out exactly who in Australia has what it takes to be crowned Master of the Mountains.

STAGE 1: HAPPY HOUR TIME TRIAL: 5.5km Time Trial Lap finishing at the Alpine Larder in time for Happy Hour

STAGE 2: THREDBO SUMMIT SMASH: Smash it up on the 21.5km ascent climbing 533m from Lake Crackenback to Thredbo

STAGE 3: THREDBO ALL MOUNTAIN DESCENT: 9kms of flowing downhill racing including the chairlift to the top of Australia and finishing up at the Thredbo Peak Party!

STAGE 4: GRAVITY CHECK: Soak in the thrills and exhilaration of this 24km roller coaster ride from Thredbo to Lake Crackenback

STAGE 5: RELEASE THE CRACKEN 45K: Finish up with 45k’s of epic riding as we Release the Cracken! on the 15k XC circuit in and around Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa.
