Lake Mountain Alpine Resort
Lake Mountain is Victoria’s most accessible alpine resort, just a two-hour drive from Melbourne. This winter wonderland is the top cross- country skiing mountain in Australia with almost 40 kilometres of groomed trails, and there is a snowshoe trail as well. Lake Mountain also offers exhilarating toboggan slopes, snow play areas and the wildly fun Dual Flying Fox and Tube Run. Kids from three to six can give snowboarding a try at the Burton Riglet Park, and there are excellent instructors for kids and adults, from beginners to experts. Stay in nearby Marysville for more days on the mountain. Take what you need to make a snowman, as the kids will definitely want to make one in the Snowman Village.
