With winter on the way, Mt Buller has made weekends even longer with their new Twilight Sessions for the 2017 winter season - perfect for your family holiday.
On Saturdays and Sundays in July and August Mt Buller will extend winter hours of operation, running the Bourke St lifts and Village Toboggan Park continuously to 8.30pm each evening, all under lights.

The new program will include an entertaining roster of music and movies in the Mt Buller village and for the first time, the Mt Buller Ski & Snowboard School will offer Twilight Discover and private lessons, perfect for beginners to skiing and boarding.
The fun continues in the Village Toboggan Park into the evening, as families can enjoy the extended hours to make snowmen, have snowball fights and discover the fun of tobogganing.
In addition, reduced resort entry fees after 3pm offer great value, and guests will find it easy to get around the resort with shuttle buses running until 9.30pm.

The new Twilight Sessions are a great way for families and beginners to have fun and learn a new skill while it's less crowded. Families can enjoy fewer crowds, quieter slopes that are ideal for smaller kids and cheaper entry from 3.00pm.
Mt Buller is located roughly three hours from Melbourne, and is the most accessible major snow resort in Australia with over 300 hectares of skiable terrain, plenty of lifts, runs and accommodation options for all families.
