Skiers were already hitting the slopes a week before what is traditionally known as the ‘opening weekend’ of the season, with a good half-metre snow cover on the resort’s main run.

Clear and sunny weather provided perfect conditions across the three day break.


Buller Ski Lifts General Manager Laurie Blampied says the Queen’s Birthday weekend is a”true celebration” of the ski season.

“It’s been terrific to have guests skiing and boarding on Bourke Street since last Friday night on a good cover and we are looking forward to getting into more terrain as soon as we can,” said

Mt Buller hosted Twilight skiing on Saturday night complete with fireworks and new lighting.

Mt Buller made a $1.6m investment in their snowmaking capabilities with the installation of the TechnoAlpin Snowfactory.

The investment has allowed the resort to guarantee skiing under the new floodlights from the start of the season.
