Skiing and snowboarding is underway at Mt Buller following a special early opening celebration on Bourke Street on Friday 2 June. 

Mt Buller tested out the new stadium lighting on the Bourke Street ski run and hundreds of skiers and boarders turned out for a ski to mark the early start to the season!

First turns after Mt Buller's early opening

Bourke Street is open all week with Blue Bullet lift and the Bourke Street carpet in operation from 9am – 5pm daily.  The Ski & Snowboard School is open for business with beginner lessons underway.

This long weekend will see thousands of guests in the resort to celebrate the traditional ‘opening’ of the snow season for the Queens’ Birthday Weekend with a jammed schedule of entertainment and festivities.

The program includes plenty of fun activities for the kids including face painting and hula hooping, complimentary hot chocolate, gluhwein, roasted chestnuts and toasted marshmallows for everyone in the Village Square.  The village stage  will showcase plenty of free entertainment and of course it wouldn’t be a long weekend celebration without a fireworks display on Saturday night at 6:00pm.
