The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW and the ride is now in its fourteenth year and has raised in excess of $5 million dollars for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF).The aim of the Snowy Ride was to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia in raising money for research into childhood cancer and its side effects and to give the local volunteer organisations of the Snowy Mountains area the chance to raise money for their own communities. Riders make their way to Thredbo from near and far to meet at the final checkpoint in Thredbo by 4pm on the Saturday afternoon. The Village transforms into a temporary home for thousands of motorbikes on display, and the atmosphere is charged with sounds of plenty of live music to watch in the square and other indoor venues.
