There are also mountain cross-country ski trails here. Mt. Buller is located about 200 kilometers northeast of Melbourne, next to a small town called Mansfield. Because Mt. Buller has a high altitude and high latitude, ski competitions are held there from August to September every year. Mt. Buller is 1,600 meters above sea level, with a natural ski area of 162 hectares. The longest paste is 2.5 kilometers long and the average snow thickness is 1 to 2 meters. The ski resort is divided into 25% of the area for snow conditions suitable for beginners, 45% of the area is suitable for general skiers, and 30% of the snow conditions and topography are suitable for professional skiers, including professional ski trails with a drop of 400 meters. Mount Buller also has a cinema, alpine ski university, gym and sports center open to everyone. Many restaurants are open from breakfast time until late at night, making the nightlife here very lively. Mount Buller Chalet Youth Hostel is the most affordable accommodation option during the ski season. The lodge is located in the center of the Mount Buller Ski Village, just a few meters away from the cable car station, ski rental shops, bars and cafes on Bourke Street.

09:30am Rental equipment in Mansfield Township under Mt Buller is ready to go
When renting ski equipment in Mansfield, it is recommended that you rent snow pants, which not only keep warm but also prevent your pants from getting wet. It is very uncomfortable. In fact, there are shops for renting ski equipment on the mountain, but the price is more expensive and it will take a long time to get it, so experienced travelers will rent it at the foot of the mountain first~~ We usually prepare cold jackets, gloves and sunglasses by ourselves. , Snow pants, SKIS or Snowboard that are not commonly used can be rented. The rent cover is as follows: cold-proof snow suit or snow pants $22, SKIS or Snowboard snowboard with Boots package is about $50, (if you only go to pure snow, you only need to rent snow shoes for about $15, if a full set of ski equipment, snow clothes + snow pants + SKIS Or Snowboard with Boots$85) *The actual price is subject to the rental ski shop announcement
11:30am 10 minutes by free shuttle bus from the entrance of Mt Buller to the ski resort
When the shuttle bus arrives at the ski resort, there are three other routes (blue, red, and orange) buses that can reach the three locations in the village. You can take the bus, cable car, or on foot (the feeling of walking on the snow, follow It is very similar in the desert. The soles of the feet are not solid, the road surface is very soft and slippery, and it takes a lot of effort to walk) to ski in the far distance, but most beginners will not go to the highest point.
You can choose low, medium and high ski trails according to your own level!! One of the ski trails is super steep and has direct access to the parking area. It is super convenient to go home without a shuttle bus.

Things to note during the trip
*Because our company provides guests with shuttle service, please wait at the gate on time five minutes before the scheduled departure time of the itinerary. Your late arrival will affect the rights of the next group of guests and the travel time of all group members. Thank you everyone Be sure to cooperate.
*The tour fee indicated in this itinerary does not include attraction tickets. Please ask Aaron to book on your behalf when you sign up. If you do not need to book tickets on your behalf until the attraction is full, the company will not be responsible for your loss.
*The fee does not include the lift. Generally beginners are not recommended to take it, because the day ticket of the lift is 90/PP, which is quite expensive, and there are quite a lot of people in line. Unless you are skiing well, you can quickly slide back to the cable car when you reach the top. Recycling everywhere, otherwise it will be built several times throughout the day, which is relatively inefficient. We can take a shuttle bus or walk to a place where there are fewer people and easy to practice. After I teach you the basic skiing skills one by one, we will slowly challenge the difficult slopes until you feel that you are very skilful. Cable car.
1. The condition of the car must be well maintained, because it takes at least 3 or 6 hours to travel from Melbourne to various snow-capped mountain attractions. This time does not include situations where driving is lost.
2. Refill the fuel tank at any time, and remember to add some “gasoline antifreeze” to the fuel tank, so as not to get to the scenic spot, because the road conditions are not familiar, the gas station can not be found, or the temperature in the scenic spot is too low, the fuel tank is frozen and trapped in the scenic spot .
3. After the start of the snow season, all kinds of private cars will not be allowed to drive up the mountain, because the road is slippery in snow and traffic jams are also prevented. Generally, your own car will be required to park in the parking lot under the mountain. To be prepared for this, look at the location of the parking lot on the map first, and remember to board the bus stop in the free mountain area, lest you can’t find your car after going down the mountain, and you won’t be able to go home.
1. Choose suitable sunscreen glasses or ski goggles.
As the sun reflects very strongly on the snow, you must have suitable sunscreen glasses or ski goggles to protect your eyes, so as not to cause “snow blindness”. If you are involved in skiing activities, you should choose fully enclosed ski goggles. The appearance is similar to diving goggles, but the nose is not buckled inside. The outer frame is made of soft plastic, which can tightly fit the face to prevent wind from entering, and the glasses should not be prone to fogging. Generally, the materials used to make ski goggles are very soft, and they will only deform without breaking when twisted by force, so as to ensure that the mirror will not cause damage to the face when it is hit. When choosing ski goggles, skiers who wear glasses should choose ski goggles with a wider frame so that they can cover all the glasses.
2. Pay attention to protect the skin.
The winter is cold and dry, and the skin loses a lot of water dispersion under this climatic condition. In addition, the skin is stimulated by the relatively fast cold wind formed during skiing and the skin burns from strong ultraviolet rays on the snow are the main reasons for skin damage. . In order to prevent the loss of moisture and ultraviolet burns on the skin, some oily skin care products with the function of preventing moisture loss can be selected, and then use a water-resistant sunscreen with better UV protection effect to apply to the skin. Sunscreen can only be effective for a short period of time, so you should apply it on the exposed skin every once in a while (usually 2 hours). Don’t apply sunscreen because it is cloudy, because the ultraviolet rays are still strong when it is cloudy.
3. Pay attention to supplementary diet.
The winter is cold and dry, and the body’s water loss is large. In addition, the indoor temperature is too high, and the human internal fire is relatively high. You should pay attention to drinking more water every day and appropriately supplement some fruits, such as oranges, pears, etc. If you eat too much oranges, you will get angry. It is best not to eat them: if you can prepare some throat lozenges, it is a good way.
4. Pay attention to choosing underwear.
Skiing is a sport carried out in a cold environment. How to choose and use underwear is very important. When a person is in a state of exercise, the body will emit a lot of sweat; when a person is in a state of stopping exercise, the discharge of heat and juice is much less. When choosing underwear, it is best not to use cotton products, because cotton products have good water absorption. When the human body is in a state of exercise, cotton products will absorb a large amount of sweat discharged by the human body; and when the human body is in a static state, the sweat on the cotton product It is difficult to evaporate in a short time. The cold and damp cotton underwear attached to the skin will take away the heat from the skin surface and make people feel cold. At this time, the underwear should be replaced in time. The solution is; you can wear a nylon vest with mesh next to the body, and then put on an elastic cotton vest, so that the juice discharged from the body will pass through the elastic vest absorbed by the nylon vest, and it will not produce cold. feel.
5. Other matters
5.1 Prepare enough warm clothes
5.2 Do not go skiing alone, lest no one knows or rescues after the accident
5.3 Do not slip outside the boundaries of the ski resort without authorization
5.4 Do not go out and ski after drinking. Once drunk lying outside, frostbite is very easy to occur
5.5 Wear bright clothes so that you can be spotted in time.
5.6 When you go skiing, tell your family or friends: where to go skiing, how many people to go to, and when to come back, so that you can rescue in time in case of an accident.
