Bye Bye Buller, Baby Bye Bye

With construction of the EPIC trail wrapped up it’s time to say a bittersweet Bye Bye Baby, Baby Bye Bye to Mt Buller. Arriving on the mountain back in early December and walking the trail alignment, the scope of the project felt so huge it was as if we might be spending the rest of our lives working on it. It’s weird now to be tucking the finished trail into bed for the Winter, ready for the grand opening in Summer 2014.

Going Down

The lift beside the apartment door is where every work day and MTB adventure at Mt Buller starts and ends. It’s like a scene from The Matrix as the synthetic voice intones ‘Going Down’ while you sit on your bike waiting to burst out of the metallic, artificial confines of the lift and out on to the trails.

Snakes and Ladders

Work on Mt Buller’s EPIC MTB Trail is powering along. We’re ~4000 meters into the final section which is shaping up to be an awesome +7000m descent. Super fast, flowing traverses linked by deep berms, all snaking down through massive Alpine forest with heaps of vertical on offer. It should be a hoot when the trail opens next Summer!
