WINTER 

Mt Buller's wheel chain requirements are decided on a daily basis and are determined by weather forecasts and existing road conditions. Chain requirements may vary between 2-wheel drive (2WD) and 4-wheel drive (4WD) and All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, as each of these types of cars react differently to snow and icy road conditions.

Daily wheel chain requirements are communicated via the local accommodation providers, retails outlets and authorities who are come into contact with people travelling to the Resort. They also appear on large flashing roadside billboards as you enter and leave Mansfield and on the daily snow report. Contact Resort Management directly on (03) 5777 6077 for the most current requirements.

ALL OVERNIGHT VISITORS MUST CARRY WHEEL CHAINS AT ALL TIMES

If you are staying in the Resort overnight you are required to carry chains at all times as weather conditions may change unexpectedly throughout the evening.

SUMMER

Carrying wheel chains is not compulsory outside of the winter season however guests may choose to hire snow chains prior to arrival in Mansfield or Mirimbah. 

Please also note - drivers of diesel vehicles may wish to ensure they refill with ALPINE DIESEL. This ensures vehicles can start in very cold conditions.
