The Bigfoot Snow Trail is described as:
“A unique and spectacular event offering both a SnowMarathon and a SnowSprint event in Victoria’s beautiful Falls Creek Resort. Enjoy the magic of winter as you make your way across the high plains, exploring solo or with friends. This one of a kind event takes runners on an extraordinary journey, visiting historical huts and witnessing some of Australia’s highest peaks under snow. The views will give you that feeling of awe, the feeling that you are on top of the world”.
The Bigfoot Snow Trail event is a SkyRunning Event in 2016 – it encapsulates the best of the mountains at a time they are most behaving like mountains. Mountain Sports invites you to set yourself a challenge like no other you have competed in and join us for the inaugural Snow Trail event in 2016.
