Why do we love this

We love that this trip gives you the chance to enjoy a snow adventure without all the crowds that you'll find at busy Mout Buller. You still get all the magic of a Victorian snow day and you don't have to share with tons of people! 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Only 90 minutes from the city, Lake Mountain is Melbourne’s closest snow resort. Full of lush powder and beautiful snowy landscapes, it's the perfect place to indluge in some snowy fun. This is the ideal tour for those first time snow visitors and seasoned travellers alike.

Start the day with a short drive as you head out of Melbourne toward Lake Mountain. 120 km’s northeast of Melbourne, Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is a great spot to play in the snow and experience a modern ski resort. Named after George Lake who was the area's surveyor-general, Lake Mountain has the highest altitude of 1,480 metres with a based altitude of 1,340 metres above sea level. It has a total skiable area of 2,400 hectares, 37 kilometres of ski trails, and 3 toboggan slopes. Plenty of room for snow fun!

It's also the closest ski resort to Melbourne, so enjoy the short travel time which means more time in the snow. There are a bistro and day shelter here and a cafe, ski equipment, retail shop, snow sports centre and ski school. Pick up the equipment you need for your snow adventure or relax with a coffee and a bite to eat. 

You'll get to enjoy three hours of snow fun, so make sure you make your own snowman, try tobogganing, and take a cross-country ski lesson. Or if you're not confident skiing, just throw some snowballs and enjoy the frosty surrounds!

You'll be driven right up to the snow, so you don't have to lift your ski or transfer buses. Easy!

Later this afternoon it's time for a 700-metre walk to the spectacular Steavenson Falls. These are one of the highest waterfalls in Victoria, named after John Steavenson, an Assistant Commissioner of Roads and Bridges who visited Marysville in 1862. The waters plummet 84 metres into the Steavenson River Valley. It's truly a spectacular sight. The area has become a popular tourist destination and visitors love it because of its distinct and amazing natural beauty. With 5 cascades and a total of 122 meters of descent, you’ll be in awe of this natural wonder!

Once you've had your fill of nature, it's time to head back towards Melbourne but not before a stop at Yarra Valley's top-notch chocolate factory. Indulge your sweet tooth at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-creamery and enjoy free samples of their handcrafted chocolate products. You can also shop and bring home some goodies.

Take some time to stretch your legs and explore the lawns surrounded by picturesque vineyards, hills, and mountain ranges. Afterwards, it's back on the bus and home to Melbourne!

You'll return at approximately 6.00pm.
