Mt Buller is committed to the health and wellbeing of all guests, employees and our community.
Access to the Mt Buller village currently remains open for residents, staff and visitors partaking in independent, outdoor activities including hiking and mountain biking and seeking time in nature during this challenging time. The resort is following government mandated policies and guidelines and expects everyone to observe government directives regarding non-essential travel and physical distancing. Our collective health and future depends on it.
We’ll update this page regularly as information relating to COVID-19 is confirmed and our plans evolve, so please continue to check in here.
To protect all guests, employees and the wider community we’re following all government mandated guidelines and health recommendations and ask you to do the same.
To keep safe and protected we have these measures in place and we expect all members of our community to follow the government directives:
At this stage it is too early to tell if the 2020 season will be impacted due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and all decisions will be made in accordance with instruction from Victoria’s Chief Health Officer. We hope to have the resort open for skiing and snowboarding, and have been working preparing with the expected completion of the village development, expanded snowmaking and a large new water storage reservoir. We are a very agile industry well adapted to the uncertainty of snow seasons, and are currently preparing to open on the Queen’s Birthday weekend along with contingency plans if this cannot occur. We will provide updates as things become clear.
We understand COVID-19 may require changes to your plans between now and then, and we don’t want you to worry. Mt Buller operators have developed an updated COVID-19 cancellation policy to provide customers some peace of mind.
In addition to the existing cancellation policy offered by most operators that enables refunds for cancellations outside 30 days of an intended visit, a new COVID-19 specific policy has been developed allowing you to request a cancellation, change of dates, credit forward or full refund on your pre-paid resort entry, accommodation, lift, lesson, rental products and other pre-paid services and activities from participating partners if;
Right now you do not need to do anything, but you can be assured you have protection should COVID-19 prevent you from going ahead with your plans for winter.
Buller Ski Lifts is planning for all scenarios at this time and will share an update regarding cancellation and credit options with Season Members shortly, should they be needed.
Although we hope the Snow Squad participants may be able to enjoy some time on the slopes this winter, we have developed contingencies if the season can’t go ahead as planned. Simply, if we cannot deliver the Snow Squad program there will be credits or refunds. More information is available here.
Mt Buller snow season traditionally opens on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June, or when we have sufficient snow to start operations, whichever comes first. A later opening is always a possibility and is part of our planning for 2020. We will advise as we know more.
Unfortunately this is a scenario that we must plan for. Should the COVID-19 situation prevent the resort operating this winter Mt Buller will implement cancellation and refunds as required and adjust plans to protect our guests and operators. This is a huge challenge for our community, our nation and our planet so we will take each step deliberately and responsibly as the situation evolves.
The resort has a vital role providing jobs, supporting families and sustaining businesses within our community. When this challenge has passed we will be ready to play our part in the post-bushfires and coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery for the region.
We urge everyone to follow the government directives regarding non-essential travel and physical distancing for your own safety and for those around you.
As per the latest guidelines all major events have been postponed to avoid unnecessary gatherings. You can check our events calendar here for updates. Please contact event organisers directly for information on specific events and to request credit/refunds where applicable.
