Breaking News for Riders at Snowies Mountain Bike Festival - Stage 4 will now use Gunbarrel Chairlift

Feb 6,  2019

SNOWY MTNS, NSW | In Breaking News Stage 4 of the Snowies Mountain Bike Festival will now use the Gunbarrel Chairlift straight to the start of the stage.

Thanks to our friends at Thredbo Resort the Gunbarrel Chairlift will be open on Saturday afternoon to transport riders directly to the start of Stage 4.

This will eliminate the previous traverse required for the stage.

So what does this mean for riders?

  1. Riders can travel directly to the start of Stage 4 on the Gunbarrel chairlift.
  2. All activities throughout stages 3 & 4 will take place a Friday Flat with no need to travel up to the Village Terminal.
  3. Presentations, briefings and the bus equipment transfer will all take place at Friday Flat.
  4. Entry to the Gunbarrel Chair is included in your entry.

If, however, riders would still like to ride the Kosciuszko Express lift and traverse to the start, they can choose to do this, however, please be aware that the route from the top of the Kosciuszko lift will not be signed with event signage and riders will need to follow Thredbo signage to the ‘All Mountain Descent from the exit point of the Kosciuszko lift.  Please allow at least 45 mins for the transfer and note that Merrets Traverse is a highly technical ride.

The website has been updated to reflect this change and you can find out more information about stages 3 & 4 here.

The Athletes Guide has also been updated to version 2 and you can download the updated version here.
