The following comes from Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management and outlines the changes on the mountain that are in place for this winter.
Mountain Journal has previously covered the Epicenter. Please support this great business.
You’ll notice a few changes at Mt Stirling this year, and we have no doubt you’ll be impressed! Over the summer period the visitor center (known as Telephone Box Junction or TBJ), incorporating the café, ski hire, ski patrol base and public shelter, received a facelift. Not only did TBJ get a well-deserved upgrade, we welcome The Epicenter, a new café at TBJ who will be serving wholesome, organic food and great coffee.
Your entire experience will be improved and we can’t wait to share it with you!
First time for Fat Bikes this winter!
Mt Stirling is excited to announce the trial introduction of Fat Bikes at Telephone Box Junction (TBJ) this winter. During June and September, riders are able to use Fat Bikes on Circuit Road from TBJ to King Saddle, and on the Circuit Road from TBJ to Howqua Gap between 9am-4pm on Saturday’s and Sunday’s. So if you’re a keen rider who wishes to test out the Fat Bike trails this winter, come try it out and let us know what you think!
The trial run will only be held on weekends in June and September to help Mt Stirling Resort Management determine whether the opportunity for Fat Bikes can be further developed within the resort.
