THE Mt Buller snow community is primed with a sense of excitement for the 2012 winter season; this year the community is proud to shout ‘Buller’s better’.
Mt Buller is Australia’s most accessible snow resort, just a three-hour drive from Melbourne.
What makes Mt Buller stand out from other ski resorts is its new infrastructure, ongoing enhancements and long-term master plan for scheduled improvements.
The mountain has a brand new chairlift on its northern side – cheekily christened Bonza – that is the only new chairlift in an Australian ski resort since 2005.
In addition, the popular Howqua lift has been given an overhaul and the resort now has 18 new snow guns to ensure higher volumes of better quality snow for visitors to enjoy. The resort’s new B-Tag streamlined, high-tech ticketing system is sure to make the Mt Buller experience easier to enjoy.
The new Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management Reception and Interpretive Centre has enhanced the ski village’s services, with modern visitor information channels, historical exhibits and other art and cultural pieces on show. The community centre also offers sporting and meeting facilities and a cinema. The village itself boasts heated pathways, making it safer and easier than ever to travel around the resort.
With the 2012 snow season due to officially begin Saturday June 9, Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management chief executive officer John Huber said he was looking forward to the arrival of winter. “Visitors to Mt Buller will experience a number of key improvements as soon as they enter the Resort this season,” Mr
Huber said.
“There is a terrific buzz around the mountain, bookings are strong and the early snows in April and May have only added to this buzz.”
