- 1:8 for secondary school groups.
Why Mt Buller?

- • Largest lift network in Victoria
- • World-class ski and snowboard schools
- • 3 terrain parks
- • 2 toboggan parks
- • Fun-loving village atmosphere
Mt Buller’s Ski & Snowboard School is Victoria’s largest, with over 300 professional instructors from across the globe joining Mt Buller each season and sharing their passion for skiing and boarding with guests. School groups can take part in group lessons with experienced instructors who ensure all students progress their skiing or snowboarding skills in a safe and fun environment.
Mt Buller guarantees skiing on the popular Bourke Street run from the opening weekend through to close of the season thanks to the Techno Alpin 220 Snow Factory, which can continuously produce snow 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and enable Buller to begin snowmaking in May to guarantee skiing on Bourke Street for opening weekend.
Looking for something extra, then Mount Buller also has the answer with Buller Air Zone, a cinema and the only resort in Australia to offer dog sledding.MT BULLER ACTIVITIES
We strongly advise that packages are booked early.
Skiing at Mt Buller is more exclusive than ever with the daily limit of people on the mountain to ensure everyone’s safety.
Mt Buller is also particularly busy in peak periods (school holidays and weekends). To ensure your school has the best possible experience, we strongly recommend visits take place mid-week and/or during low season. This helps to guarantee access to Ski & Snowboard School and its instructors.
What to bring?
To ensure that students are equipped properly for Mt Buller snow adventures, parents and teachers need to understand that the alpine weather can change quickly, and to be prepared for any conditions (blizzards and cold winds are not uncommon in the mountains!).
These conditions can be enjoyed when students are properly prepared with the following. Alzburg Tours and Ski Hire have a wide range of waterproof jackets, pants and walking boots available for rental that are suitable for school groups.
All rental prices are for the rental of a “Standard” package. This includes skis, boots and poles or snowboard, boots, and wrist guards for $44 per student. We include complimentary helmet in all student ski or snowboard packages.
Add waterproof jacket and pants for the cost of $34 per student.
