Mt Buller announced updated operational plans for the 2020 season earlier this month with both season pass holders and those with pre-booked accommodation to receive ticketing preferences.
All skiers and snowboarders will need to pre book their dates online for contact tracing purposes. The resort will also run at reduced capacity to start and will have half the normal lifts in operation.
The good news in Victoria is lodges will now be able to open with communal facilities from June 22. Mt Buller have also confirmed no tobogganing in resort until review on 13 July and no sightseeing lift access until further notice.
At this stage most resorts still need more natural snow and longer snow making conditions to warrant more terrain to open for the opening dates. So expect limited terrain to start, not dissimilar to normal season openings.
First ticket sales stage
Mt Buller are now putting the final touches to their roll out ticketing sale plan which will be just for the opening week (22-28 June) at first to cater to those who have booked accommodation and may wish to use the lifts, conditions permitting.
Buller Ski Lifts shared they are taking a “careful and staged approach to support the sanity of guests, staff and keep the online store working.”
The plan is then to progressively roll out sales once they are happy it’s working as expected so stay tuned for updates from them this week.
