If you are searching for the perfect affordable family getaway in the great outdoors then look no further than Lake Mountain Alpine Resort – the closest ski field to Melbourne – providing families with year round action and adventure and the opportunity to create lifelong childhood memories.
Skiing, tobogganing, striking views, picnics, mountain biking, road cycling, walking, snow shoeing, ski trails, laser skirmish, flying foxes and downhill tubing – as well as a host of other free activities on the mountain.
Take a short 90 minute drive along the majestic ‘Black Spur’ – the gateway to the Victorian Alps and one of Australia’s best driving roads (as voted by Top Gear Australia) and you will be greeted by a myriad of snow gums and towering alpine ash, breathtaking views and Victoria’s best adventure playground – all year round!
During winter, Lake Mountain Alpine Resort promises excellent snow conditions for snow play, tobogganing and of course making your own snow man – thanks to round the clock snowmaking machines.
Explore the mountain on our 37km cross-country trail network or if you or the kids have never skied before, book in for a ski lesson with our first-class Ski School. Tobogganing is a must at Lake Mountain with beginner and expert runs for the whole family!
In the warmer months, the Mountain transforms itself from a winter wonderland to a spectacular summer playground, offering cross country ski trails to explore on foot or bike, 15km of new single track mountain bike trails andunique walks leading to lookouts with views rolling over the mountains of the Yarra Valley. On really clear days Melbourne’s City Skyscrapers can be seen.
During winter, enjoy a delicious meal at the Lake Mountain Bistro, which offers woodfired pizza and other tasty meals and drinks to warm you up after your snow adventures.
No trip to the snow would be complete without building a snowman or throwing a few snowballs. Capture your visit on camera and video as you appreciate the several lookout points scattered across the mountain, offering panoramic views of the Victorian Alps, the Great Dividing Range and across to Melbourne.
The Lake Mountain plateau provides a great setting for a bike ride and there is also an extensive cross-country ski trail network available offering a perfect platform for beginners.
There are great packages available for you and the family that will have you experiencing all the mountain has to offer. So, what are you waiting for? Come on up and join us on the mountain for a bit of ‘altitude with attitude!’
