This August 22nd at Mt Buller the Chillfactor FreeBOM will return presented by The North Face. So start growing those sideburns and stop shaving those armpits, it’s time for everyone to get raw and express the true animal spirit of the hotdoggin’ skier within.

FreeBOM is for every skier. It is your chance to get a cheer from the lift, a high five at the bottom of the run and a shout out from an MC in a one piece suit. It’s not about how well you ski it’s about how well you want to ski. This is theatre, this is action, this is the way skiing was meant to be before espresso coffee made it just another Saturday.

The competition is much like a big mountain event but instead of being held on the side of a steep rocky peak the event is located on Mt Buller’s infamous Wood Run – birthplace of Aussie bump skiing and an achievable challenge for intermediate skiers and a blast for experts.

Skiers will be judged on their skiing fluidity, aggression, line choice and control. The format is relaxed and the judges are as much a part of the entertainment as they are looking at the skiing. Prizes will be awarded to all ages and genders based on skiing, dressing, airing, falling and FreeBOMing.

Wood Run is known for its big bumps and Bull Run bowl is the hot spot for Buller’s expert skiers. However, on FreeBOM’s Saturday in August the Bull Run FreeBOM Bowl will be an infusion of ski culture, funky music and friends.

The FreeBOMing will continue into the night as we “gate crash” the Olympic Winter Institute Gold Party fundraiser. Traditionally, this has been a formal black tie gala with too many speeches and little ribbons. However, this year they have taken a leaf out of FreeBOM’s book and realized that people just want Aperol Spritzers and DJ Eddy.

So, Après Ski professional DJ Eddy from Mt Hotham will be making the trek in his light aircraft to get behind the decks and fire up the d-floor. Plus we will be spoiled with unbounded Aperol, beer, wine, food, and Olympians. (Did you know that with 11 athletes, Mt Buller was home to more Olympians at Sochi than any other ski resort in the world?). So come and support the team. Tickets $85 all-inclusive at
