SAFETY ON THE TRAILS

 

Mt Buller is an alpine environment and conditions can change quickly, with sub-zero temperatures and even snow occurring in summer. Please ensure you check the weather forecast and come suitably prepared. Trails are graded according to their difficulty, in accordance with international standards. Be sure to choose a trail that matches your fitness, ability and equipment. Remember to ride within your limits. Let someone know where you are going, and when you plan to return.

Mountain biking can be hazardous. Trails at Mt Buller may include unmarked obstacles and hazards such as sticks, rocks, logs, trees, steep inclines, drop-offs and loose surfaces. Riders attempting these tracks do so at their own risk. Downhill trails at Mt Buller include extremely rough and rocky terrain. Specific downhill or freeride mountain bikes with front and rear suspension are recommended.
