Thredbo Downhill - Trail, Thredbo, Australia

DESCRIPTION

Fast Long Downhill race track. Not as technical as some Downhill race tracks. I can't believe no-one has put a review of this trail in yet. Access can only be obtained via a commercial orginisation: RawNRG, but they're good guys & the money goes to Chair-lift access, mobile repair crews (RawNRG on bikes) & trail maintainence. Check: http://www.rawnrg.com.au for info.

I really like Thredbo and with over 600m of vert and great scenery it has huge potential. Unfortunately (due to location in a NP/fragile alpine environment/skiing looby fearful of their hill being overtaken by mtbers?) there's only 1 DH track that has to cater for everybody.

Starts off as a well groomed firetrail(???) then ducks into the bushes, there's a few steep drops and roots, the odd featureless traverse across a ski slope and a fast, bumpy finish.

I'm totally inspired to go to Whistler...

2 stars for the scenery, 1 for the vert.

Ride up the firetrail past the 4x track, get lost somewhere past merrits nature walk and have some fun on the service trails, then find your way to eagles nest and commence THE CANNONBALL RUN!!!

This is amazing. The guys at Rawnrg are great. i hired a yakuza ojiki and had the time of my life. the chairlift ride up is a bonus and the ride down is awesome. some parts are a little a hard but after the 2nd time through you are sweet.......Make sure you stop after section becuase if you dont you will get REALLY tired and make stupid mistakes. Also watch out the the fire trail at the top which connects you to the trail, the gravel is really thick, and by thick i mean 2 and a half inches thick. the tyres plough threw it not over........

Customer Service

Head to Thredbo and look up. Make sure you book on the internet, i recommend you hire a bike unless you have a decent DH bike
