Adventure Tours Victoria - Ski Trips

Melbourne Winter Short Break

With one of the best ski seasons on record, NOW is the best time to visit Victoria’s snowfields, with two resorts, Mt Buller and Lake Mountain an easy day trip from Melbourne.

Victoria’s Snow Fields

If you’re after the true alpine village experience, look no further than Victoria’s snowfields, as you’ll find all you need in the village, located above the snowline. This means you can ski to and from your doorstep, catch the first run of the day, and enjoy your après ski drinks and dinner without leaving the mountain.

While Victoria’s three major resorts, Mt Buller, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek have some of the best downhill runs in the country, Mt Baw Baw and Lake Mountain are fantastic places to see, touch and experience snow for the first time, and even learn to
ski or snowboard.

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s a resort to suit you. Lake Mountain is a great place to ride a toboggan, a snowmobile, or test your legs cross-country skiing.

Mt Buller has a big mountain feel with many bars, restaurants, lodges and luxury
hotels. Mt Hotham is definitely the place for serious powder freaks, and if you want it all, then Falls Creek has the lot.

When to hit the slopes

The snow season starts in June and finishes around the first week of October (but keep your eye on the snow reports!).

Victoria offers a variety of accommodation above the snowline, from backpacker rooms to cozy lodges and chalets.

If you are looking for budget options, you can stay off the mountain at nearby towns such as Dinner Plain, Bright, Mansfield, Mount Beauty, Bogong Village, Omeo, Harrietville and Marysville. Many of the lodges and apartments are self-catering and
you’ll also find great restaurants, cafes and bars to eat out.
