Learning to fall in the snow
Located approximately 3.5 hours away from Melbourne, Mount Buller is one of the closest and most popular ski resorts in Australia for budding snowboarders and skiers alike. I no doubt found myself flying from Tasmania just to spend a weekend up there.

The Village

The Village is where you will find everything you need for the day including equipment hire, ski lift passes, snow attire as well as food and drinks. As I already had my snow attire, all I had to do was head to George Ski Hire to collect my equipment. It cost $90 (if you purchase online beforehand) for a snow package (i.e. snowboard, bindings, snow boots, helmet and wrist guards) and is the cheapest deal I could find on the slopes. A 2-day ski lift pass and a B-Tag cost a total of $228 (10%discount when purchased online).

If you're a beginner at skiing or snowboarding, you would want to start off at one of the easier slopes - Blue Bullet. It wouldn't hurt to also try ABOM express which goes much higher but has less people, so you stand a better chance of not crashing into other skiers/snowboarders.

At some point during the day, you will hear some jazzy tunes echoing through the slopes. I caught them playing just next to the ski lifts at ABOM express as well as The Village (picture below).

The ski lifts normally stop running around 5pm but if you're feeling adventurous, you could head up to the Summit to catch the sunset. We weren't particularly lucky to get a spectacular sunset as it was very cloudy but the view was still worth the climb.

Nevertheless, this very short trip ended on a high note as we managed to catch a magnificent sunset on the drive back the next day.
