This summer was huge for Thredbo. While the New South Wales alpine resort has long-held the title of the home of gravity, its spread of trails has been increasing thanks to the vision and work of Dirt Art. There’s far more to point your bike down than just the Cannonball run - and a visit to Thredbo gives you plenty to ride, as well as daily lift access. With first snows now settling onto the new trails high on the mountain and lower in the valleys, we’ll have to see how they bed in with the pressure of an Australian winter snow load. But we can’t wait to put tyres to dirt when they are open again in late spring.
