Summer sports to try on a trip to the Snowy Mountains

Most people only visit the Snowy Mountains during winter, when the region is covered in powder, and is prime country for winter sports. But during the warmer months, it’s fantastic for a range of other summer sports, like mountain biking.

Activate, at the Lake Crackenback Resort, runs a range of guided e-bike tours, which enable the standard rider to reach new heights and explore remote wilderness. The Three Huts Tour is one that would usually be inaccessible to the average rider. On this tour, you’ll explore several historical huts in this stunning region. The 20-kilometre ride is designed for beginner and intermediate mountain bike riders, so no matter your skill level, everyone can have a crack at it. Snacks and lunch are also included in the tour.

The huts are fascinating stop-offs, and provide shelter for many — even today — during harsh weather, but if you prefer more luxurious accommodation, check into ‘The Eastern’ in Thredbo Village. Chic, minimalist accommodation, The Eastern consists of two styles of accommodation: the Oak Apartment and the Cedar Cabin. The stylish, modular layouts feature many nods to both Japanese and Scandinavian design. Both also boast incredible views, out onto Mount Kosciuszko, making this accommodation a mountain lover’s dream.
