Mt Buller - Guided?
12:27:38 PM
Hi All,

Just got a question around guided ice/mixed climbing or small scale (obvioulsy) moutaineering on Mt Buller.
I will be heading up there in 2 weeks, and have seen that there can be some alpine style adventures to be had, including maybe some ice climbing in the right conditions.

I have never really headed out into the back country (except a bit while snowboarding) - although I enjoy climbing - arapiles and grampians style (incl. trad up to about gr 18 at the moment). I realise there is quite a difference though!

Does anyone know of any tour operators for day trips? A long shot, I know!

Alternatively if anyone is in the area 19,20,21 August, I'd be keen to tag along, carry gear, etc! I am an ABOSLUTE beginner in the area of mountaineering/ice/mixed climbing though!!

Guides try calling Ski Chute 4 in Mansfield. They used to do some backcountry stuff but changed hands a while back and may not.
Your probably going to have to wait and see what next years season brings if you want to go alpine at buller. I got back from there last night having spent most of the week skiing there and I do have to advise, the conditions are pretty ordinary. Theres barely enough snow to keep just over half the runs open for downhill. Theres still an awful lot of brown poking through the white.
