It’s asta la vista to the 2023 season for Mt Buller this Sunday, September 17.

The date marks the 100th day of the ski season, which will be the final day of lifted snowsports for the year.

Five lifts are currently

operating including the Summit and Howqua chairlifts on the upper mountain and Bourke Street is holding a soft cover down to the village.  Buller Ski Lifts advised they plan to continue to roll as many lifts as possible to the close on Sunday afternoon.

“It’s a reluctant decision to wrap up the fun on the slopes, but the unseasonably warm weather this week is quickly taking a toll on the snow cover so Sunday will be our final slide for the season,” said Buller Ski Lifts Manager Noel Landry.

“It’s fitting we wrap up this snow season on Day 100 which feels like a nod towards the upcoming celebrations of 100 years of skiing on Mt Buller that we’ll be marking in 2024,” said Resort Management Chief Operating Officer Mark Bennetts.

“It’s been a challenging season with the lower-than-usual snow fall and I’m impressed by how hard the entire resort community and the Buller Ski Lifts team has worked to deliver 100 days of great experiences, a successful Interschools Championships and to welcome thousands of guests to the mountain” he added.

Mt Buller Parks relocated a new park to the Summit area earlier this week featuring a mix of medium size features and jumps which has attracted a skilled posse of local freestyle skiers and boarders who have been putting on a daily show in the sunshine.

The annual “Bangers and Mash” shred gathering to mark the close of the season is on the calendar for Sunday.

Mt Buller rolled the only chairlift in Australia for the start of the season back on 10 June for the King’s Birthday long weekend opening and has welcomed strong visitor numbers across the winter and spring seasons.

Lift passes are currently significantly discounted to the season close, resort entry is also reduced and the operational plan confirms sightseeing chairlift rides on ABOM Express and snowplay in the village toboggan park through to Sunday.  The Mt Buller Ski & Snowboard School continues to deliver beginner level ski and snowboard lessons each morning and private lessons to demand.

Car park shuttles, village shuttles and ride share services will conclude in resort on Sunday afternoon.
