Mt Buller is adapting plans for the 2020 snow season in alignment with the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer. The event below is 'to be confirmed' as circumstances allow. Mt Buller looks forward to welcoming guests when it safe to travel and gather again. For more on Mt Buller's COVID-19 response click here.
Free your animal spirit at the 7th annual FreeBOM, where Mt Buller’s ski community get together on Wood Run to ski moguls, dance to music and aprèski. Possibly the most fun you will ever have on skis.
Everyone is welcome to watch and everyone is encouraged to enter. It is your chance to get a cheer from the lift, a high-five at the bottom of the run and a shout-out from an MC in a one-piece suit. It’s not about how well you ski it’s about how well you want to ski. This is theatre, this is action, this is the way skiing was meant to be before espresso coffee made it just another Saturday.
The competition is much like a big mountain event but instead of being held on the side of a steep rocky peak the event is located on Mt Buller’s infamous Wood Run – birthplace of Aussie bump skiing and an achievable challenge for intermediate skiers and a blast for experts.
Skiers will be judged on their skiing fluidity, energy, line choice and control. The format is relaxed and the judges are as much a part of the entertainment as they are looking at the skiing. Prizes will be awarded to all ages and genders based on skiing, dressing, airing, falling and FreeBOMing.
WATCH HERE FOR INSPIRATION...
