Snow way! Another Factory is here

3 May 2024

Snow WAY! Another new Snow Factory arrives

Mt Buller had an exciting delivery this morning with the arrival of the resort’s fifth Snow Factory.

New Snow Factory arrives on a truck to Northside of Mt Buller on a clear autumn day. The Factory will support snowmaking in the popular Burnt Hut area

The new Techno Alpin SF 220 joins the resort’s snowmaking fleet and will soon be producing 200 cubic metres of snow daily to support skiing, snowboarding and snowplay in the popular Burnt Hut area on the northern slopes for this winter.

“With one month to the season opening it’s great to have another Factory operating to support guaranteed skiing and snow for our guests,” explains Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Noel Landry. 

“It’s starting to feel crisper and colder on the mountain and we’ve already had the first early dusting of the snow, however it’s reassuring to have this technology that can make snow regardless of weather.  These Factories mean we can get a head start with a stockpile of snow before Mother Nature brings the ‘season-starting’ snowfalls we expect in late May and early June.”


Mt Buller invested in the first Snow Factory in Australia in 2017 and has continued to build the resort’s capacity for all-season snowmaking with further acquisitions; now totalling five factories around Mt Buller including three mobile units.

The newest Snow Factory will be positioned at the top of the Bonza and Northside Chairlifts boosting the cover and allowing more ski days in this fun beginner area and sightseeing zone near Spurs restaurant.

The Snow Factories produce icy particles which are vital for supporting a resilient snow base on the ski area and toboggan parks.  The ‘snow’ is only comprised of super-chilled water and the particles are produced at a glacial -8 C when they join the pile that allows them to bond and freeze to one another.  The snow piles are made in key areas on ski runs and snowplay zones in the coming weeks underpinning Mt Buller’s snow guarantee for guests to be making turns from the King’s Birthday long weekend.
