Skiing, snowboarding and other snow sports
(June to the end of September)

There are seven alpine resorts in the Victorian ski fields offering great skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, cross-country skiing and snow tubing.

 

Mount Buller

Mount Buller gives you access to over 300 hectares of skiable terrain, with runs ranging from the wide beginner's slopes of Bourke St and Burnt Hut Spur, to the challenging slopes of the back runs like Chamois and the back of Summit. There is also a half pipe and an ultra cross course.

Falls Creek

Falls Creek has great skiing and snowboarding ranging from beginners (with the longest beginner run in Australia) to advanced skiers and riders. You can also go for a ride on a snow bike, go snow tubing, or take a turn on a toboggan.

Mount Hotham

This is one of Australia's highest alpine villages with terrain to suit all abilities. There are over 320 hectares of ski fields with 13 lifts.

Lake Mountain

Lake Mountain is the closest resort to Melbourne, here you can toboggan or tube down a slope, or ski around one of the 37 kilometres of trails.

Mount Baw Baw

Mount Baw Baw has seven ski lifts servicing over 30 hectares of skiing terrain. It is great for cross country skiers with 10km of sheltered and groomed trails. It also has the 'Big Air Bag' - the first big air bag in Australia, where the blow up air cushion is positioned behind the ramp so snowboarders and skiers can practice stunts without the fear of a hard landing.

Dinner Plain

Offers a range of activities including downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing.

Mount Stirling

Offers cross country skiing, snow camping, tobogganing, snowboarding and snow shoeing. It has more than 68km of maintained trails, 35km of which are groomed.
