Wheel Chains

Requirements and fitting

Wheel Chain Requirements

During the Declared Snow Season

 All vehicles visiting Mt Buller or Mt Stirling in the declared snow season MUST carry diamond pattern wheel chains every day of the declared snow season.

They must be carried from Mirimbah entry onwards and fitted when instructed to do so. 

Wheel chains can be hired at Mansfield, Merrijig, or Mirimbah. It's best to organise these in advance to ensure the right size for your vehicle is available. Wheel chains are not available for hire once on you are already on the mountain. 

A small number cars cannot fit chains in accordance with the vehicle’s user manual. Please check your manufacturers guidelines before hiring chains. Alternative transport options to the resort are available.

 Trailers cannot be towed behind vehicles when the road conditions require wheel chains to be fitted.

The declared snow season is typically King's Birthday Weekend until the first weekend of October every season.

When to Fit Wheel Chains

Depending on snow and road conditions, vehicles may be required to fit chains. When there is  snow or icy conditions wheel chains are fitted for your safety and the safety of others. Please ensure that you know how to fit your chains correctly. Fit your chains when directed by signage or a Resort Management officer.

  Only fit chains on vehicle when directed by resort management officer or road signage at designated chain fitting bays


Outside the Snow Season

Carrying wheel chains is not compulsory outside of the snow season however guests may choose to hire snow chains prior to arrival in Mansfield or Mirimbah when road conditions are snowy or icy.
