Alpine skiing closed in 2006 at Mount Buffalo. However, Parks Victoria and the local ski school etc have worked to reopen access to the snow as a family friendly snow play, toboggan and cross country (Nordic) ski area. The area has 14km of groomed cross country ski trails and unlimited back country skiing terrain. The nearest airport was Albury.

Visitor Reviews of Mount Buffalo

Jim Faulkner from Australia writes:

Early snow in 2019 season posted on snow-forecast so off we went to see the snow..The highest point on the mountain one can access is 'The Horn'. The last kilometer of muddy track ends at the parking area. Light fine rain with a 30kph wind was not much fun. The local authorities have not done much of a job keeping the climbing track up to The Horn very clean. Every few metres, from the beginning of the track, lie used tissues where people have not even bothered to cover up their crap or tissue piles. There are 2 main ski areas (free access is unusual for Australia); the upper most being 'Cresta' is a carpark where once a kiosk/ski shop was burnt down and dozed years ago. Silent rusting ski lifts stand testament to happier days gone by. An 'emergency shelter' (a container sized shed) is on the car park but securely locked. There is no phone service here as a sign on the shelter warns.

'Dingo Dell' is the first ski area you come to as you ascent the mountain road. It has a small kiosk and ample parking. No lifts there. Staff not hospitable either. So, all in all, the best part is, it's free..
