      Most guests to Mt Baw Baw think we are just a ski resort, but we are so much more In fact, the resort is open 364 days a year – Mt Baw Baw’s spectacular alpine landscape and mountainous terrain make it a mecca for adventure and offers a unique experience all year round.

      Cross Country:
      The Resort’s Village and McMillan trails meander through undulating terrain to the boundary of the Baw Baw National Park in the north.
      The single track course provides a good introduction into cross country mountain biking with challenging climbs and exciting descents. Raised decking has been installed over wet areas to ensure the trail remains in good condition throughout the season. The ride is picturesque with rest areas and picnic tables scattered along the trail.

      Visit the Resort’s iconic landmarks and enjoy stunning sights including fields of wildflowers, forests of Snow Gums and Mountain Ash and the impressive view from the summit. Anthill lookout provides spectacular views over Baragwanath Flat to Mt Phillack and Mt Whitelaw, whilst numerous species of mammals can be spotted in the snow gum woodland including wombats and deer.

      All levels are catered for, meaning beginners right through to hardened experts can explore the area using pedal power!

      Access to the Cross Country trails is FREE, bring your own bike or hire one from the Adventure Hub on mountain!

      Downhill
      Mt Baw Baw’s downhill mountain bike track has developed a reputation within the industry as one of the most challenging and exciting runs in the country.
      The starting platform is located along side Currawong drive in the Baw Baw village and riders are faced with a large table top before disappearing down the old chairlift run. Riders meander in and out of the bush and tackle log drops, berms, boulder sections, rollovers, jumps and challenging downhill ramps. Australia’s best riders have conquered the 300 vertical metres plummet in just over 3.20 mins. The main trail will challenge the most competent rider however those not so experienced have the opportunity to bypass the more difficult features via alternate routes. The Mt Baw Baw DH1 track is open during summer, seven days a week (excluding major event weekends) from the end of November til late April each year.
