There are actually many places where you can find snow and one of them is Mount Buller - the best place to experience snow, ski and snow boarding during winter. Mount Buller is a 4 hour drive from Melbourne. You should be aware that the roads are really winding and you’ll be driving along the coast at certain points. Also, be sure to pack some light snacks because you’ll definitely need them. Along the way to your destination, you are able to witness breathtaking views of the country side – cows grazing, horses galloping and sheeps running around in their herds. Once you are almost reaching your destination, you will need to fix your car tyres with chains. This is to prevent skidding of the car when you go up the slopes. You can rent these chains along with your snow apparels at the stores approaching the peak of Mount Buller. You will definitely feel the immediate drop in temperature and actually see the real snow! Once you’re there, there will be free shuttling services taking you to different checkpoints base on what you intend to do. If you intend to ski and snow board, you can rent the equipments at the shops available at Mount Buller.
There’s definitely no place like Mount Buller so make your way up there to enjoy the breathtaking view of snow!
