Incredible snowfalls, superb skiing and snowboarding conditions, and unprecedented availability for bookings means that right now for regional Victorians, the High Country’s beautiful Alpine Resorts are more tempting and accessible than ever. 

The extension of the Melbourne lockdown caused a wave of cancellations, and businesses at Falls Creek, Mt Buller, Mt Stirling, Mt Hotham and Mt Baw Baw are hoping regional Victorians can make a trip up to the ski fields.

Bess Nolan-Cook, CEO Tourism North East, said it’s been an incredibly tough two seasons for Victoria’s Alpine Resorts and now is the perfect time for regional Victorians to experience the snow in peak season.

“We can’t wait to welcome Melbourne snow lovers back to the resorts when it is safe to do so, and in the meantime, now is the time for regional Victorians to jump online and book a snow holiday. Not only are the conditions amazing with most terrain open and significantly less people, you can feel great knowing every dollar you spend you are supporting local tourism businesses who desperately need your help.

“We’re not going overseas or interstate anytime soon, so why not take a break that feels like a world away?” said Ms Nolan-Cook.

A snow holiday is on the bucket list for many, and Victoria’s Alpine Resorts do just the trick. Learn to ski, cuddle a husky, watch the sunrise on a mountain top, build a snowman, camp overnight in the snow, get married in an alpine chapel and enjoy the many culinary delights on offer.

The Alpine Resorts are waiting, and the current conditions indicate that it will be a bumper Spring, so visitors can enjoy the snow right through until October.

So, just to make sure everyone can safely and enjoyably experience all the magic and fun of just a day, or even better, a multi-night trip to the snow, book ahead and check individual resort websites for up-to-date information.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for updates and advice from the Victorian State Government for latest COVID safe advice and restrictions.
