Description

Head up to Mt Buller on 3-4 December 2016 as we officially open for the 2016-17 summer season! There'll be plenty happening over the weekend including free mountain bike lessons, free guided trail runs, free sunrise yoga sessions, free kids hula hoop classes and the Official Season Opening Party at The Bike Club of Victoria on the Saturday night with heaps of free entertainment.

100% of our MTB trail network will be ready to shred, including all of the XC and DH trail network. Shuttles operational from Mirimbah Store and also from Blue Dirt in our gravity zone. Please remember to book your shuttle passes in advance.

Join in on our 'Copperhead Convoy' on Sunday morning, an en masse, group ride down our flow trail, as we see how many riders we can get wheel to wheel, top to bottom. Every rider gets a special gift from the Mt Buller Bike park, and a complimentary ride back to the Mt Buller Village on completion.

Plus a very special guest instructor conducting a free Women's MTB Clinic on the Sunday morning (details below).

There are plenty of activities for all ages so make sure you get the gang together and lock in your accommodation now and join us for an epic weekend!
