The Mt Buller Race Club (the Club) was formed in 1987 for the benefit of young Alpine racers (both ski and snowboard) at Mt Buller. It is a non-profit organisation incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act.
The Club offers a part-time and full-time race training program for skiers and snowboarders of school age that commences at the start of the July school holidays and concludes at the end of Term 3. Part-time athletes train during the two weeks of the July school holidays, and on each weekend during Term 3. Full-time athletes live at Mt Buller during Term 3, train during the July school holidays, and for six days per week during Term 3.
The Club also offers a two-week holiday program for Year 11/12 athletes in the July School holidays.
Club athletes have the opportunity of participating in a number of races during the season, including the Buller Cup (open to both skiers and snowboarders), as well as a range of FIS and SSA sanctioned races for skiers and snowboarders.
The Club has its own Clubhouse on Summit Road. The Clubhouse is used by the Club staff during the season, for theory training and video analysis, and for some Club meetings. The Club also has its own Operations Manager, as well as its own Head Alpine Coach.
