Blue Cow

Blue Cow
 

It's definitely a name that gets you wondering about the story behind it, so this is how the story goes...

James Spencer obtained the lease for the high country on the main range back in 1840. They say that Spencer bred imported black English Shorthorn cattle with white Shorthorns which gave the offspring blue roan coats. One cross-bred cow would disappear after the thaw each year and would be found grazing on the mountain before the next winter; and so the mountain was named Blue Cow.  

Blue Cow is accessible by the comfort of our Skitube where you can then ski directly out the door and start enjoying all that is on offer. With a great range of Green and Blue runs including Zali's, Pleasant Valley and Roller Coaster, as well as some great Black runs such as Kamikaze and Yarrandoo, Blue Cow really covers all bases for all ability levels.

From Blue Cow you then have direct access to ride at Guthega!
