Porters ski resort:
“Another reviewer couldn’t be further from the truth.
The manager at Porters goes out of his way to help clients and lifts are all not (did you mean to include 'not', ed?) closed when the weather conditions make it unsafe for them to operate - and this information is communicated on their website in advance.
If Mt Hutt is closed you can bet Porters will be open due to the different orientation of the slopes. No queues at Porters and extremely friendly staff.
Closest skifield to Christchurch, best value for money and in my opinion some of the best off-piste runs in the area.”

Porters ski resort:
“Porters is the go to field for riders who want challenging terrain and excellent customer service. Mountain hosts are on the slopes most days and are more than happy to share their best runs and help first-time riders and skiers. The cafe has delicious home made hearty meals, the best baristas and don’t forget to try the steak sandwiches!! Yum!”

Mount Buffalo ski resort:
“Mount Buffalo Snow Season 2018
Mount Buffalo has some of the best and most accessible snow in Victoria and it’s free as there are no resort fees to enter the park. Located only a 45 minute drive from Porepunkah and Bright, Mount Buffalo is “North East Victoria’s Winter Wonderland” and has extensive areas of snow at both Dingo Dell and Cresta Valley for snow play and tobogganing, cross country skiing or simply enjoying the amazing views.
There is a warm and friendly café and day shelter at Dingo Dell where the Mount Buffalo Ski School is based and where there is excellent tobogganing for children and families. The ski school has a range of affordable snow clothes for those that might have forgotten winter warmers and also has toboggans for hire.
Cresta Valley has extensive areas available for tobogganing as some of the old ski runs are now available to use for snow play and Cresta is also the hub for cross country skiers to access the groomed Cresta Beginners trail, Bogong Loop and Horn Road ski trails. There are also the longer ungroomed four and six kilometre trails (accessed off the Bogong Loop) and the Lyrebird Plain back country trail from the Horn Road. There is no café at Cresta Valley but there are portable toilets and a small day shelter (unheated). Take your winter woollies and wet weather gear.
There is plenty of parking at both Dingo Dell and Cresta
Other backcountry ski trails include the longer reservoir road trail. While the Mount McLeod and Rocky Creek ski trails take you further out backcountry. Mount Buffalo Ski School offer daily cross-country ski lessons at Dingo Dell plus half and full day ski tours.
The mountain has snowshoe trails (and snow shoes for hire at the Ski School Shop) plus amazing snow hikes to the top of the Hump and the lookout at Dingo Dell. Mount Buffalo Ski School also run regular snowshoe rambles each Wednesday and Saturday afternoon at 2.30.
The gorge precinct with its amazing views of the valleys below and the Alps is well worth a visit and the historical Mount Buffalo Chalet covered with snow is a great photo opportunity.
Snow camping is available at Lake Catani and Mt McLeod camping areas
While there are no ski lifts at Mount Buffalo (the old resort having burnt down in 2006) there are still areas at Cresta Valley where you can back country style alpine ski or snowboard by simply hiking uphill with your skis or board and then traveling back down the old ski runs and of course it is free!”
