The Mountain Bike season kicked off in spectacular style last weekend with a record number of riders on the mountain. If this start to the season is any indication the 20-21 Mountain bike season will be the best yet for rider numbers.
Bookings are coming in thick and fast for the summer season for many of the village accommodation operators as well. Obviously the easing of border restrictions has added to the sense for many people that it is time to travel and get a break after a tough 9 months.
As we discussed last week it is important to continue practicing COVID safe operations to ensure Thredbo stays safe for visitors and residents alike.
