Mt Buller is pleased to confirm continued operations ensuring access to the ski area and lessons on an appropriate scale for as long as conditions permit.
Resort CEO Mark Bennetts and Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Laurie Blampied jointly made the announcement,
“This year has been incredibly tough on our community through fires and coronavirus (COVID-19) but we remain committed and determined in the face of this latest challenge to support the local people and those in our region who rely on tourism. The resort is maintaining a rigorous safety protocol and is ready to welcome regional Victorians to the mountains.
We sincerely thank our valued guests from Melbourne and Mitchell Shire for their understanding as they stay home and we process refunds and changes. We look forward to when we can welcome everyone back once this challenge has passed.”
Laurie Blampied explained, “The decision to continue running ski lifts, lessons and snowmaking was reached with the well-being and livelihoods of our employees, the community and our guests in mind. Remaining open is not an easy decision however we believe it is in the best interests of our community and regional Victorians.
Health and safety remains paramount as we carefully move forward in accordance with public health guidelines for the alpine industry, and to support our regional economy and the skiers and snowboarders of Victoria.
The latest restrictions have impacted the number of visitors able to come to the resort in the next 6 weeks while the borders are closed and the lockdown is in place. Buller Ski Lifts acknowledges the support of the government as the alpine resorts have worked collaboratively to open safely during the pandemic for the benefit of residents and guests.”
Mark Bennetts confirmed that the Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Resorts will remain open for visitors unless there is alternate direction from the State Government, “We will continue to operate under our COVID Safe Plan, providing the essential services that support the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling alpine community. We welcome the decision by Buller Ski Lifts to continue lift and snowmaking operations. While some businesses and lodges may not be able to continue operating through this next phase, we appreciate the commitment of those who decide to do so as we adapt to changes in visitation.”
Lift tickets for the remainder of the season are now available for purchase online. People with season resort entry passes and season lift pass memberships can continue to use their passes if they are permitted to be within the resorts in accordance with the government’s coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

Alpine areas, which are those above the natural treelineand are covered by snow for roughly four months of the year, account for 0.15% of Australia’s total land mass. Alpine environments are therefore geographically rare and should be treated as special and unique places. Read about our environmental policies below.
