The Wild Brumby is for riders ready to tackle the very best and toughest riding on offer in the Snowy Mountains.
It’s a hardcore challenge for hardcore riders which includes the Snowy Legends Descent where competitors depart from the top of Gunbarrel chair, in the shadow of Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko to ride the full expanse of the Thredbo Valley to Gaden in Jindabyne.
This epic stage includes Ricochet, the new flowing, downhill trail at Thredbo resort, the upper TVT, the Lake Crackenback resort trails and the latest edition to the Snowy Mountains Trails, the Lower Thredbo Valley Trail.
