Mt Buller announced today that they will be honouring all Mt Buller Season Membership passes for the 2020 winter in an email sent to pass holders.

However for now, while they finalise operational details and capacity limits there is a pause on the sale of lift tickets and lessons. They expect to resume the sale of online products after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and will reveal more details than.

“This gives renewed optimism and certainty for the local community and the 10,000 jobs that rely on alpine tourism in Victoria” said Laurie Blampied, Buller Ski Lifts General Manager. 

“What will be new this year is skiers and boarders will need to pre-plan like never before, booking in their resort entry and lift access so that we can manage guest numbers on a daily basis.”

The finer details of the resort’s COVID-19 Safe Plan are being worked through addressing capacity management for transport, food and beverage outlets, accommodation, ski lifting and lessons to ensure they can operate safely.  

The Ski and Snowboard School will commence the season with private lessons only and they have again emphasised that the ‘new normal’ in 2020 will mean the full range of products and services may not all be offered as the resort adapts to the restrictions.

Hotels and some private accommodation are now taking bookings for this winter.
