Mt Buller open for skiing and boarding


8 June 2024

Mt Buller open for 2024 season!

This Saturday morning Bourke Street Chairlift rolled for the official start of the 2024 snow season and happy skiers, snowboarders and the resort mascots Barry Possum and Blake the Flake were eager to slide from 8.30am.

Local athletes and Olympians joined the festivities as the first chair was loaded with smiling skiers. Jakara Anthony, Belle Brockhoff and Mia Clift welcomed guests to the slopes and shared special gifts to mark the 100 years of skiing at Mt Buller being celebrated all season.

Mt Buller’s snowmaking efforts have paid off as the resort was able to offer guests some of the only skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and terrain park fun in the country for the official season start.

“It’s a team effort and literally does take a village to get the mountain open and rolling for the start of snow season,” explains Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Noel Landry.

“The snowmaking team have been working night and day for weeks, the groomers have carefully been preparing the runs and our snowplay areas in recent days and as we get sliding in the sunshine this morning for the first time it’s great to see so many happy faces.” 

Mt Buller has lifted skiing on Bourke Street run, a terrain park on Gliders carpet on Northside, sightseeing on Northside Express, toboggan slope fun in the village and snowplay up at Spurs café for the King’s Birthday long weekend.
