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.
