Mt Buller Winter Activities
With 80kms of marked runs, 300 hectares of skiable terrain and 22 lifts across the mountain there’s a great selection of terrain for everyone – choose from steep chutes, gentle beginner slopes or a big choice of intermediate groomed runs.
Mt Buller also has 3 terrain parks designed for all skill levels, a half pipe and an ultra cross course, with a dedicated snow grooming team to maintain their condition.
The village toboggan park has its own snowmaking machine keeping the kids happy all winter long. Even a second toboggan park at Horse Hill and you can catch that lift up to where the snowtubing park is located.
Cross Country Skiing
Cross-country skiing provides a great physical workout and is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. While Mt Buller is renowned for its downhill slopes, we also have 9km of cross-country trails that circle around the back of the Village.
The trails are easy to access and offer spectacular views of Mt Stirling and the Bluff.
Want to try something new? Figgles or short skis are great alternative to traditional skiing, while still using the same skill set. Available from most on-mountain rental outlets, figgles allow you to add a new dimension of freedom and variety to your skiing. Figgles are available to hire from George's Ski Hire
Ski and snowboard under the stars every Wednesday and Saturday* from mid July until September, on Mt Buller's popular Bourke Street run. When the sun goes down, the lights come on allowing for night skiing between 7pm and 10pm.
Tickets for night skiing are available from Buller Sports.
Scenic Chairlift Ride
You don't have to be a skier or boarder to explore the mountain! Simply jump on either the Horse Hill or Blue Bullet 1 chairlifts and enjoy a breathtaking ride across Mt Buller's slopes.
The Horse Hill Chairlift on the northern slope departs from the day car park and will take you to Spurs Restaurant. The Blue Bullet 1 Chairlift runs directly above Bourke Street, allowing you to watch all of the on-slope action.
Tickets are available from any ticket office or Buller Sports Outlet.
Skiing & Boarding
Either you're a beginner about to discover the magic of snowsports or an expert who can navigate the steepest slopes with ease, you'll get more out of your holiday if you ski the runs that are best suited to your level. Mt Buller has a variety of terrain to suit every ability.

Donning a pair of snow shoes is the perfect way to explore the winter wonderland that is Mt Buller. Suitable for all ages, snow shoeing is as easy as walking. Whether you want to trek to the summit to watch a glorious sunset or explore the Mt Buller backcountry playground with deep snow among the trees, you'll discover a side of the mountain you haven't seen before.
Snow shoes can be hired from one of the many on-mountain rental outlets and guided snow shoe tours are also available.
Snowtubing is fabulous fun for the whole family and is a perfect activity if you don't quite feel like taking to the slopes on a ski or board.
Sit or lie in an over-sized inflated rubber tube and feel the adrenaline rush as you spin you way down the channels of the snowtubing park!
Located near Spur's Cafe, snowtubing is FREE with a valid sightseeing pass. Take the Horse Hill Chairlift from the Horse Hill Car park or walk across from the top of Blue Bullet Chairlift and you'll find the snowtubing lanes near the Spurs T-bar.
If you are looking for a new challenge on your next Mt Buller visit, why not consider learning to telemark. Telemark skiing, or free-heel skiing, looks deceptively easy but is quite a challenge. The Mt Buller Ski & Snowboard School offers lessons in this exciting discipline.
Families with kids of all ages love the exhilarating experience of tobogganing!
Mt Buller has two designated toboggan areas - one located in the day car park next to Celia's Cafe and the other next to the Post Office in the Village. Toboggans are available for hire from most on-mountain rental outlets.
Please note that toboggans are to be used only in the two designated areas and not on the ski-runs.
Come and take a walk with Mt Buller's little folk! The Mt Buller Gnome Roam takes visitors on a tour of the mystical gnome world of the mountain village where they will catch a glimpse of resident Mt Buller gnomes, learn about their favourite places to play as well as some interesting facts about the gnome way of life.
Visitors can collect a Mt Buller Gnome Roam booklet from the post office to guide them through the Roam. The booklet, which makes a perfect keepsake, contains an intricately designed map and beautiful photos of Mt Buller Gnome folk. A further bonus is the gnome stickers available at the Post Office as a reward for completing the Roam.
On your way up the mountain, you can also stop in at the Gnome Home for a visit. Located about 3km up the Mt Buller Tourist Rd, keep an eye out for the Gnome Crossing sign and just past that you will find the Gnome Home, in a majestic Mountain Ash tree.
