Mt Buller, in the Victorian Alps, has also announced it’s opening ahead of the official start to the Australian ski season, beating Perisher, in NSW, by one day.
Buller will have lifts turning on Friday, June 2, allowing skiers and snowboarders to hit up the main run, the beginner-friendly Bourke Street, during a special and free Friday twilight session from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Bourke Street will remain open into the weekend, as well as next week, with the Blue Bullet lift turning from 9am to 5pm daily. Beginner “Discover” lessons will also be available at the ski and snowboard school.
“Everyone is excited to get on the snow as soon as possible, so we’re inviting everyone up for a free night ski this Friday,” said Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Laurie Blampied on Wednesday.
“We’ve invested in new stadium-style lighting on Bourke Street that turns night into day and this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the early snow and get out for a Friday night slide.”
From Saturday, lift passes will be $60 for adults and $33 for children.
