Mt Buller has been blanketed with fresh falling snow all week and the depths are now sitting at around 40cms. The resort is racing to get ready for the early opening.
Yesterday Mt Buller confirmed they couldn’t wait until the Queen’s Birthday Weekend to roll their new 6-seater lift on Bourke Street so are opening for FREE skiing and boarding on Saturday 1 June – start the season a week early.
Resort Management CEO Mark Bennetts confirmed Mt Buller and Mt Stirling will both officially open on 1 June, offering half price resort entry from Saturday until the Queen’s Birthday Weekend, which means less than $24 per vehicle when bought online in advance. Overnight parking will be free during this period. Shuttle services will operate from the car parks to the village from Saturday morning.
The Mt Buller Ski & Snowboard School will provide limited beginner ski and snowboard lessons from this Saturday and retail/rental stores at Mt Buller and in Mansfield will be open early for equipment hire. A number of hospitality venues in resort are open early and ready to serve meals and drinks.
Bourke Street ski run will remain open from Sunday 2 June at usual hours of 9am – 5pm. Lift passes for Sunday onwards are available online from $66 for adults and $37 for children.
