Tobogganing and snowplay

The snow season opens on the Queens Birthday Weekend in early June and closes in late September/early October depending on conditions.

There are 3 toboggan slopes: Village Run, Koala Creek and Leadbeaters. Snowmaking operates when possible during the snow season to ensure enough snow cover for snowplay and tobogganing fun.

There’s always plenty of room to make a snowman, have a snowball fight, or just walk through the snow gums enjoying the beauty of Victoria’s alpine environment during winter.

XC trails

There are 37km of ski/walking trails and the total skiable area is 2,400 hectares.

Lake Mountain Resort offers cross country skiing lessons for adults and children in a “public lesson” small group format, where up to 10 people can learn together. Private lessons are also available.
