Some 26 lifts operate on Mount Buller in the winter which will get you onto over 75 kilometres of runs of various grades.

You can even ski at night on the Bourke Street run and there are cross country routes as well for those who enjoy nordic skiing.

Mount Buller can be enjoyed at any season, in winter when the snow covers the mountain and decks the trees in white lace or in the spring and summer when the mountain is covered in delicately coloured wildflowers and grasses and you can look out over the expanse of the ranges beyond.

Whenever you go, for whatever the reason, Mount Buller has everything to offer.

Falls Creek is easily accessible and one of the largest of Victoria's ski resorts. In winter you simply put on the snowboard or skis and slide to and from your front door.

A picturesque European style village at the head of the East Kiewa River, Falls Creek boasts some 4000 beds, ranging from luxury to economy style accommodation.

Many lodges have saunas, spas and swimming pools, some even have resident masseurs to soothe aching muscles after a hard day on the slopes.

And for those who still have not had enough, Falls Creek has introduced night skiing on the Baby Pomas as well as new trails in the Sun Valley area and a new street course for snowboarders near Scotts chairlift.

The resort also enjoys a reputation for fine eating, with a wide variety of restaurants and bistros from which to choose. In fact, the whole village is designed to serve the visitor, no matter the season.

The snow season officially opens on the Queen's birthday weekend in June and there can often be plenty of snow right through until October.

With the biggest snowmaking system in Victoria, Falls Creek has a reputation for reliable snow.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced skier, Falls Creek can cater for you. It is also one of the best areas in the Victorian Alps for cross country skiing with trails ranging from one to 20 kilometres through the beautiful Alpine National park.

And when the snows melt the true glory of the high country is revealed. The whole region is a flora and fauna sanctuary, home to grey kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and wombats as well as the shy platypus and some 130 different species of birds.

The plains and valleys become a blanket of delicate wildflowers and fish literally jump in the streams and reservoirs,

Take advantage of the summer months in Falls Creek and enjoy everything from bushwalking to horseriding, tennis and scenic drives.

The Bogong High Plains Road will also take you to the Rocky Valley Reservoir, the largest and highest manmade lake in Australia which provides good fishing, and boating as well as a variety of other water sports.

Another great drive is to Mt McKay, which is the highest spot in Australia accessible by road. At 1849 metres above sea level, it offers some of the best views in the High Country.

Welcome to Mt Hotham, the highest alpine resort in Victoria!

No matter what your skills Hotham will give you slopes to enjoy and, what's more, the snow is reliable, long lasting and powder.

And if you have never skied before and just want to give it a go, the ski school will cater for you. The lifts run from the main street. What more could you ask!

If you don't want to ski, then Mt Hotham will provide wonderful scenery for you to relax and enjoy what you like doing best.

The resort is flanked by the Alpine National Park and from the summit there are spectacular views of the mountains and the Dargo High Plains.

Access is easy. The Alpine Road is fully sealed to the village and if you don't want to drive yourself there are buses which will get you to your doorstep.

There are cross-country trails on Wire Plain and Whiskey Flat, Longer trails go towards Mount Loch and beyond to Falls Creek, while an 11 kilometre track links Mt Hotham with the Dinner Plains resort below.

The resort has everything the ski enthusiast requires by way of accommodation, great eateries and entertainment and, as with other alpine resorts, is as much fun in the warmer months as it is in winter.
