Snow much fun on Buller to con­tinue this Spring

Mt Buller News - - NEWS -

MT BULLER is get­ting set to turn up the fun this Septem­ber as the re­sort cel­e­brates the ar­rival of spring with plenty of great value deals and a colour­ful line-up of events on the hori­zon.

Septem­ber is known for iconic spring events in­clud­ing the ABOM Mogul Chal­lenge.

Spring is a fan­tas­tic time to visit Mt Buller, and visi­tors can en­joy a range of dis­counts, with up to 50 per cent off the peak sea­son rates at many prop­er­ties across the moun­tain, free overnight park­ing and up to 30 per cent off lift passes.

The first week­end of Septem­ber is set to be an event­ful one, as Mt Buller hosts the 2016 Aus­tralian Snow Uni Games and the an­nual ABOM Mogul Chal­lenge.

From Au­gust 30 to Septem­ber 3, hun­dreds of univer­sity stu­dents from across the coun­try will gather at Mt Buller, when the 2016 Aus­tralian Snow Uni Games take place.

On Septem­ber 3, visi­tors will see world-class freestylers and mogul en­thu­si­asts tackle the bumps in a bid to win fan­tas­tic prizes dur­ing the an­nual ABOM Mogul Chal­lenge.

See spec­tac­u­lar ski­ing in ac­tion on the pur­pose-built course, in an event not to be missed.

Mt Buller will re­visit the neon-coloured glory days of the 1980s, when the an­nual ‘80s Day fes­tiv­i­ties hit the moun­tain on Satur­day, Septem­ber 10.

Cel­e­bra­tions will be held across the moun­tain, with live en­ter­tain­ment in the Vil­lage Square, a DJ at Koflers spin­ning 80s tunes through­out the day, and the an­nual 80s après party at The Bird­cage, where there’ll be a DJ, prizes for the best dressed and more.

The Corona Ex­tra Pond Skim Na­tional Cham­pi­onships will re­turn to Mt Buller for the third time on Satur­day, Septem­ber 17.

Spec­ta­tors will en­joy see­ing par­tic­i­pants dressed in crazy cos­tumes skim across a tem­po­rary dam on Bourke Street, tak­ing on silly stunts to get from one side of the dam to the other.

Cel­e­bra­tions will con­tinue with après drinks and an af­ter party kick­ing on into the evening.

Group man­ager of mar­ket­ing, sales and events for Mt Buller Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Manage­ment, Gil­lian Dob­son, said spring is a fan­tas­tic time to en­joy a snowy break.

“There is so much hap­pen­ing at Mt Buller in spring.

“With lots of great deals on ac­com­mo­da­tion, park­ing and lift tick­ets, plus fun and ex­cit­ing events and en­ter­tain­ment, visi­tors will be spoilt for choice. And with some sunny days and mild tem­per­a­tures thrown in, we re­ally will be on top of the world here at Mt Buller.

“We’ve had such a fan­tas­tic sea­son here at Mt Buller in 2016 and there’s still plenty of time to spend on the slopes.

Bring on a sen­sa­tional spring.”
