Mt Buller to host epic Win­ter Ad­ven­ture Race

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

MT BULLER will again host the ex­hil­a­rat­ing Win­ter Ad­ven­ture Race event on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16.

The Mt Buller Ad­ven­ture Race is an ex­cit­ing sin­gle day event that sees com­peti­tors nav­i­gate to nine dif­fer­ent check­points across the Mt Buller snow fields.

Not only do con­tes­tants need to plan the best route for the fastest time, the course will see them bat­tling up snowy moun­tain trails, travers­ing rugged stretches of alpine ter­rain, and de­scend­ing snow-cov­ered tracks to reach the fin­ish line.

The course can be com­pleted on skis, snow­board, snow­shoes, skins, alpine tour­ing or split board equip­ment with sev­eral race cat­e­gories for par­tic­i­pants to en­ter, mak­ing it ideal for all alpine en­thu­si­asts.

Group man­ager of mar­ket­ing, sales and events for Mt Buller Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Man­age­ment, Gil­lian Dob­son, said: “This is not your av­er­age ori­en­teer­ing day out; this event com­bines nav­i­ga­tional know-how with fit­ness, mak­ing it a great way to ex­pe­ri­ence the Mt Buller ski fields with a lit­tle healthy com­pe­ti­tion.

“The Mt Buller Win­ter Ad­ven­ture Race is a unique event on our cal­en­dar, of­fer­ing a chal­leng­ing and fun ex­pe­ri­ence for com­peti­tors.

“Now in its fourth year, the Win­ter Ad­ven­ture Race sees some tough com­pe­ti­tion with plenty of friendly ri­valry so we en­cour­age guests to take part and en­joy a great day out.”

Start­ing and fin­ish­ing at the Mt Buller Vil­lage Square, the win­ners will be de­ter­mined based on the quick­est times.

A pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony will be held in the Vil­lage Square, with lots of great prizes to be won.
