Thredbo’s signature trail, the famous Cannonball DH Trail takes riders to their physical and mental limits. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift and descending 600m vertically through the tree-lined Supertrail slopes. Cannonball tests riders with off-camber roots, rock drops, jumps, wall-ride and other technical features that the gravity specialists dream about. Recent upgrades include the addition of World Cup style sections that have been widened with more fall-line added along with some big jumps in the mix for the freeriders *Full-face helmet compulsory.
