Snowy Mountains

Snowy Mountains – surprise of the month for us 🙂 An epic MUST-TO-DO for any Aussie bikers and much more.

Snezne hory se pro nas staly velkym prekvapenim. Misto jednoho dne jsme tu nakonec probombili 5 krasnych dnu.



Jindabyne
Entrance to the whole Snowy area with satisfactory supply possibilities and one truly awesome bike trail. This Jindabyne Community Trail is without a doubt one of the best single trails in the whole Australia. It does not suffer from over-hype like some of his brother and yet it offers a complete biking experience. Let’s see: great views of the Lake and surrounding mountains, smooth flow with some properly challenging sections and even some difficult sections for downhillers.

Jindabyne itself has some things not to be missed – the picnic area next to the lake, the sunset walk along the lakeside, kayaking at the lake and a bit more. Eating out is not recommended by some locals – best to do your own mate.

Mt Kosciuszko
The highest peak of Australia. Unfortunately the vertical climb is small compared to some other mountain climbs in Australia and it is more designed for families and pussies. You can even ride around half way on your bike which we did.

The you climb the easy rest of the way and you are then the highest standing dood along with thousands of annoying flies 🙂

Thredbo
The only skiing alpine village in Aus mainland – prepare your wallet for some medieval hardcore incasion… Everything is bloody expensive, all the staff is sour as lemon and welcoming as prison guards. Yep, we didn’t like Thredbo. They know they are the only ones and they use that “privilege”. In MTB terms you have heaps of options ranging from bitumen to the very extreme almost steep downhill tracks. Tomino wanted to go for the downhill (ex – DH racer) but after discovering that 1 ride is 35 $ he flipped everybody off and we went for some tube fun (we got 2 free tickets !!!!).

We tried the Thredbo Valley MTB track because of its huge reputation and it was very nice family friendly. Radunka loved it but Tomino’s heart is loyal to Jindabyne Community Trail (love you guys!!!).

Cesta se klikati, potkavame cim dal vic aut s nalozenyma kolama a na obzoru vidime jezero , blizime se do Jindabyne a to jeste netusime jak moc si to tu zamilujeme :).
Jsme prekvapeni velikosti informacniho centra a zaciname tusit proc – Snowy mountains nejsou jen o narodnim parku, kde se nachazi nejvyssi hora Australie – Mt Kociouzsko jak jsme se domnivali. Hned v Jindabyne jsou paradni cesticky na MTB kola, ktery radne hned v den prijezdu otestujeme. Tomino naprosto chrochta blahem, protoze nachazi nejlepsi singletrack z cele Australie a to sme toho projeli zatracene hodne.

Jindabyne ale zdaleka neni jen o kolech. U jezera je supr dupr piknikoviste a krasna stezka, ktera vas primo vyziva k vecerni romanticky prochazce :). Behem piknikovani v trave nachazime mravence na stereoidech abychom pozdeji zjistili, ze toto je agresivni druh zvany Bull Ant – ma obri kusadla a jeste k tomu zihadlo. Uz skoro vidime namet dalsiho monstr filmu – Bull Ant vs Obri Chobotnice 🙂

Mt Kosciuszko
Dalsi den se rozhodneme pokorit tu nejvyssi horu Australie. Proto jsme prece tady, ne? K nasemu zklamani vystup zacina ve vysce 1800m a vrchol ma cca 2200m, tudiz to neni zadny vyslap nicmene pohodova prochazka v horach. Skoro jako Krkonose 🙂

Finalni vystup lze jenom pesky, ale je to opravdu prochazka pro Fifinky

Pokud by si vas nekdy Australani dobirali pro spatnou vyslovnost, tak se jich schvalne zepteje jak oni vyslovuji jejich nejvyssi horu a mate hnedle navrch. Pochechtate se a muzete je kantorsky opravit, ale pochybujem, ze nejaky pravy Ozik nekdy spravne vyslovi Koščuška 🙂

Nepripomina vam tahle krajina filmy o Winnetuovi? Tomino o tom porad basnil 🙂

A protoze jsme naladeni na kola, jedeme 1.cast na kolech a bereme s sebou provetrat par clenu naseho plysovyho gangu :). Finalni vystup lze jenom pesky, ale je to opravdu prochazka pro Fifinky a je to tady uzpusobene pro vystupy celych rodin. A na zaver dne mame luxusni pozvolny sjezd na kole s dokonalym vyhledem. Dobre sme to naplanovali!

Thredbo
Jedina “alpska” lyzovaci vesnicka v Australii si je jedinoznacne vedoma sve ojedinelosti coz se projevuje hlavne cenove. Lanovka odsud jezdi na Kozciouzko z kteryho vede par paradnich sjezdovych cest pro MTB kola.Jedna jizda ale stoji $35 takze se Tom nakonec nesveze :(.Thredbo malinko pripomina Spindl (hlavne financne). Vede sem skvela stezka na kolech podel reky, kterou jsme radne ocenili.Kolem je par pohadkovych kempu, idealni misto pro rodiny s detma. Mame stesti a jedna rodinka nam preda listky na bobovou drahu, tak to tam aspon poradne probobujeme :).
