Beginner green runs
Bourke Street is our iconic beginner run overlooking the Mt Buller Village. Here you can master your first turns on this gentle beginner slope, before heading up the ABOM Express Chairlift and through to Baldy. For those wanting a new challenge, head to the top of the ABOM Express and follow the signs to Spurs, where you will find Burnt Hut Spur. This green run is a favourite for many Mt Buller skiers – it’s long, wide and perfect for beginners.
Intermediate blue runs
Mt Buller offers a variety of groomed blue terrain for intermediate skiers and boarders.
Travel up Bourke Street Express and head across to the front of the Arlberg Hotel and you're at Shakey Knees. Once you get to the bottom, head up The Fox Chairlift and stop for a break at the Tirol Cafe.
The ever popular Little Buller Spur offers skiers a reliable and consistent skiing experience. You can access Little Buller Spur from the top of ABOM Express then follow the signs to Little Buller Spur. Little Buller Spur is a wide, cruising slope that leads to the Wombat Chair. A great alternative to Little Buller Spur is Wombat, which runs parallel and also leads to the Wombat Chair.
