MT BULLER has wel­comed a cold blast of win­ter, with snow be­gin­ning to fall at the re­sort and sub-zero tem­per­a­tures and per­sis­tent snow fore­cast for the com­ing days.

Vic­to­ria is fac­ing a se­ries of cold fronts which are bring­ing icy tem­per­a­tures, strong winds and heavy snow to the Alps right through­out the week.

The snow is the wel­come sight for the snow­fields, with school hol­i­days set to start this weekend.

Snow fore­cast­ers are pre­dict­ing up­wards of a me­tre of snow to fall at Mt Buller in the next seven days.

Mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager for Mt Buller Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Man­age­ment, Gil­lian Dob­son, is thrilled to see the snow.

“While Mel­bur­ni­ans will shiver through this week, here at Mt Buller we’re con­tin­u­ing to do our snow dance as these ideal con­di­tions bring us plenty of the white stuff,” Ms Dob­son said.

This fresh dump of snow and chilly tem­per­a­tures ideal for snow­mak­ing mean we can re­ally start get­ting the sea­son un­der way.”

Ms Dob­son said the re­sort is pre­par­ing to wel­come plenty of school hol­i­day­mak­ers to the re­sort from this weekend.

“Mt Buller is an ideal des­ti­na­tion for the school hol­i­days, with plenty hap­pen­ing on and off the slopes to keep ev­ery­one busy.

“With fresh snow and lots to do around the re­sort through­out the hol­i­days, we’re feel­ing on top of the world here at Mt Buller.”
