Sporting tourism is on the rise with an increased demand in fun and fitness weekends at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains leading to a sell out of next weekend’s mountain biking and wellness for women weekend event.
Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa General Manager Anthony Cleary said the event has proven popular with women wanting to take their mountain biking confidence to a new skill level.
“The appeal of the event lies in the sporting and fitness elements of the event but also in the added extras like meals, yoga and a spa session,” said Mr Cleary.
The sold-out women’s mountain bike skill weekend will be held from Friday November 6 until Sunday November 8 and combines mountain bike workshops and guided rides with yoga and a pampering session in the Lake Crackenback Spa and Wellness Centre.

Mr Cleary said Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa hosts around 20 sporting events each year ranging from skills workshops in mountain biking and fishing through to national championship cross-country extreme events.
“Year on year the participation numbers in all events continues to grow as the region gains international attention as an adventure-sports hub,” said Mr Cleary.
Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa will host the 2016 ITU Cross Triathlon Championships in November 2016.
