A BRIEF HISTORY

Spark Ski Club at Mount Buller, a smoke-free lodge, was established in November 1958 by a group of friends with a love of skiing, who were also members of the 13th Malvern Rover Scouts. They built the original clubhouse themselves; spending many months digging, hauling and carrying materials up the mountain. The club was named in honour of one of these friends who died before the clubhouse was completed.
Spark has a long history of skiing and fun and has always had an active membership that has seen the clubhouse renovated several times from the original "shack" to the modern comfortable building that exists today.
Two of the original members still hold their memberships and ski at Mt Buller every year. Several current members are children and grandchildren of the original members and other members are second generation members of Spark. Many of the younger members train and compete in the Mount Buller Racing Club, Team Buller Riders or the Transitionists (Snow Boarding).
Today Spark is also actively involved with several school groups who stay at the club house whilst training and competing in the Interschool's Snow Sports competitions.

Facilities

Spark is a private family-style club with an active membership. Our lodge has 9 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Six bedrooms have 4 single bunks each(2 up/2 down), one has a queen sized bed and 4 single bunks and one has a double bunk with a single on top and 4 single bunks (2 up/2 down). Doonas, pillows and blankets are supplied. You will need to bring your own linen - top and bottom sheets, pillowcases and towels. Alternatively you may prefer to use sleeping bags in which case you will need to bring a bottom sheet for the bed (for hygiene reasons) as well as towels and pillowcases.

Our communal kitchen is generously serviced with 2 gas ovens and hotplates, a commercial hotplate/electric grill, 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, refrigerators and freezers. Crockery, cutlery and cookware are plentiful. We supply tea, coffee and sugar. There are numbered shelves (based on room numbers) in the refrigerator and pantry cupboard for food storage. Please ensure that the shelves are left clean and empty at the end of your stay.

There are two recreation areas. Upstairs, there is a passive area, with a gas log fire, located adjacent to the dining area and downstairs there is a recreation room mainly used as a children’s retreat. Both areas have CD players. The downstairs recreation area also has a TV and DVD player, and this year it has new furniture and carpet.
