In summer, Mt Buller's premier snow runs turn into the ultimate downhill mountain biking course with a variety of challenging technical trail features such as berms, ramps and jumps. Accessible by shuttles, Mt Buller has been operating as a downhill venue since the 1980s, offering generations of riders the chance to feel the ultimate downhill thrill.
Mt Buller features 3 downhill, 1 flow track and 1 gravity trail, ranging from easy to advanced. The downhill trails begin at Spurs Restaurant and are marked with trail-head signs detailing their degree of difficulty (green for easiest, blue for more difficult and black for most difficult), length and elevation loss.
Full face helmets approved to Australian bicycle riding standards are compulsory for all downhill mountain bikers. Other protective equipment such as gloves, body armour and protective eyewear are also recommended.
In the interests of safety and common courtesy to your fellow riders, please take note of and obey the following suggestions: 1. Ride in control. 2. Slower riders allow others to pass. 3. Remain on trail - no cutting of corners. 4. Obey all signs. 5. Respect wildlife.
