Ski Season Dates: early June-October 1
Voted ‘Best Year Round Alpine Resort’ at the 1999 Australian Ski Awards, Mount Buller is rapidly emerging as a premier downhill skiing resort. Located just three hours northeast of Melbourne, Mount Buller is usually one of the first areas in the southern hemisphere to open and averages 128 days of operation each season. Their long ski season and snow making facilities allow Mount Buller to guarantee skiing on runs serviced by at least ten major lifts or your money back. The area’s large skiing terrain (445 acres) and extensive lift system of 28 lifts is open day and night (night skiing is available Wednesdays and Sundays) to tempt skiers with a wide variety of options for every level.
