Iltis Ski Club

Located at Mount Buller, Iltis Ski Club exists for the pursuit of skiing and snowboarding in winter, and various alpine activities – such as bike riding, walking and plein air painting – in summer. It is a not-for-profit organisation, run by enthusiastic members and long-serving hut managers.

The club was established by a group of like-minded friends in the late 1950s. Each one contributed £139 and agreed to work for free to build the lodge. The final window panes were fitted on the Queen’s Birthday weekend in 1962 – just in time for the club to be officially opened ahead of that year’s bumper ski season. Remarkably, two of those founding members remain active club members today, as do many descendents of other founding members. While the club has undergone numerous improvements and expansions over the course of nearly 60 years, the original club values and cosy communal atmosphere remain unchanged.

Iltis offers comfortable accommodation to members and guests at attractive rate. Many of our guests return to the club on a regular basis, but we also warmly welcome new guests. The club has been part of the Bike Buller Recommends program – promoting accommodation venues with bike friendly facilities – for the last seven years. We are also a Ride High Country preferred business.

Iltis is committed to protecting all members and guests as we continue to adapt to the Covid-19 situation, with new operating rules in place to ensure we comply with all DHHS guidelines for shared accommodation – including a much greater focus on continuous cleaning and hygiene. Please be patient and and keep in mind that all rules and directions are simply intended to keep everyone as safe as possible. By accepting their booking, all members and guests voluntarily assume the risk that they could be exposed to or affected by COVID-19 by attending Iltis.
