Top 5 Reasons Mt Buller Is a ‘Must Do’ This Winter
bella - May 1st, 2017
There are so many great reasons why a snowy Mt Buller escape should be on your list this winter. We’ve narrowed it down to just five to get you started…
- Mt Buller is the only resort in Australia with guaranteed skiing from opening weekend
Mt Buller guarantees you can ski or snowboard on the popular Bourke Street run from the opening day of the snow season. No ifs or buts. It’s a promise no other Aussie ski resort can make and it’s possible due to the resort’s new $1.6m Snowfactory that makes snow continuously regardless of the temperature!
2. Weekends are longer in July and August at Mt Buller
In July – August the weekends are longer at Mt Buller with Twilight Sessions extending your time on the snow. The lights come on as the sun goes down in the Village Snowplay Park across the weekend until 8.30pm on Saturday and Sunday nights and on Bourke Street for continuous skiing and boarding (15 Jul- 27 Aug). When you need a break from all that fun on the snow a lively program of afternoon entertainment including live music and outdoor films will keep things fun in the village. The good news is there is reduced resort entry available from 3pm and the car park shuttles will run until 9.30pm.
3. Learn something new – after dark!
Mt Buller offers the first twilight ski and snowboard lessons in Australia! Discover lessons for first timers will be offered at 4.30pm and 5.30pm, as well as private lessons, during weekends from mid-July through August. Make the most of the twilight sessions during peak snow season and learn to ski or board under lights this winter!
4. Kids Stay Free
In June and September many properties at Mt Buller offer an amazing deal for up to TWO kids (under 15) to stay FREE when booked with two adults. June and September is also when you’ll find plenty of other great discounts and deals in resort.
5. Just three hours from Melbourne you can be in another world
Jump in the car (or take a coach and let someone else do the driving) and in just 3 hours you’re in a world populated with snowmen, breathing in crisp mountain air and revelling in pure winter magic. Mt Buller has the most on-mountain beds of any resort in Australia, over 40 great spots to wine and dine and 300 hectares of ski area to explore.
