The Mountain Bike Event of the Year is back

Cannonball MTB Festival 2017• 6-10 December The Thredbo Cannonball MTB Festival 2017 celebrates its fifth birthday with a packed program of gravity events and non-stop entertainment December 6-10. The Festival will see amateurs, rising stars and the world’s best descend on Thredbo for five days of dirt defying action and the chance to take home their share of a whopping $70k in cash and prizes. This is the biggest prize purse ever seen at an Australian gravity inspired event. The five mega events will attract different level of riders from not only the nation but from around the world, so don’t be surprised if you see your favourite pro rider on the mountain. The line-up of show stopping events includes the RockShox Pump Track Challenge on Thredbo’s Village Green, the Whip Wars Big Air held on a purpose built kicker, the Maxxis All Mountain Assault, the leg burning Canyon Flow Motion Cup and the rough We Are Lusty Australian Open Downhill! With categories to suit all abilities, the

Cannonball MTB Festival is a great introduction to the growing world of mountain bike competition. So if you haven’t competed before, Cannonball is a great place to start. Just choose an event that aligns with your skill and ability. Participation across all events is crucial for the pro field as these riders will have the chance to be crowned King or Queen of Cannonball. Points scored across each event will determine this factor. Five years of Cannonball means the village will come to life with a sublime selection of entertainment across the weekend. We’ve got this mountain bike party covered with live gigs and DJ’s spinning tracks until late!

The spring thaw is on and that means it’s time to plan the next year of skiing and stoke, and with the Thredbo 365 Pass, you get some unreal global benefits at all of the Mountain Collective Resorts…it’s time to go powder hunting. So here’s how it works, with the Thredbo 365 Pass you get unlimited 50% off one day lift tickets at ALL the Mountain Collective Partners with NO blackout dates, that includes some pretty awesome powder destinations in the US and Canada. There’s also the affiliate resorts that now include powder-central Japan, with up to five days of discounted day passes, in fact 50% off. Check out

some of the deep-snow excitement below…we’ll see if you can resist booking a Mountain Collective trip… Huge news this year is the addition of Niseko resort to the list of Mountain Collective affiliates, alongside existing affiliate Hakuba Valley, Japan’s largest ski resort. Japan is renowned for its insane powder but with all the smaller areas within both larger options, there really is something for everyone. Japan is only a short flight from Australia and with your pass you can snag five days of 50% off one day passes.
