Early morning groomers on Bourke St

Mt Buller have done it again, this time announcing a ski day for 2020 Season Members this Monday. The Bourke Street Express will be operating for a Members day for those in regional Victoria able to travel to Mt Buller.

“This is an opportunity to end this rollercoaster of a season on a happy note and make the most of the fresh snow” said Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Laurie Blampied.

“We realise that for some of our season members it is a little bittersweet as they cannot all be here, but for those in the regional areas who can we wanted to say thank you, roll the lift for one day and take a few turns together.”

2020 Season Members wishing to ski or board simply bring their 2020 pass and Bourke Street Express will roll from 9.30am – 3pm.

Due to the closures earlier in the season there are limited venues open at Mt Buller for food and drinks including Coffee Garage (The Whitt), The Villager and the Grocer.

Georges Ski Hire is open this weekend for ski and snowboard rental and has an extensive range of beanies, gloves, accessories and souvenirs.

Season Members have been emailed personally and been invited to make the most of the last season turns. Due to Covid capacity and management the lift and run will only be open for members so as to run safely.

Regional Victorians without a season membership are welcome to Mt Buller to enjoy the recent snowfall with snowplay and tobogganing at the Mt Buller Village Snow Play Park.

The road to Mt Buller and Mt Stirling is open and entry is free. Cars can drive to Mt Buller Village (road conditions and capacity permitting) but all vehicles must stop at the resort entry gate for capacity and contact tracing, temperature and regional Victoria address checks.

COVID safety plans are in operation so wear your mask, keep a safe distance and if you are unwell please stay safe at home.
