Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort is the closest DOWNHILL SKI resort to Melbourne & the Mornington Peninsula. Your Mt Baw Baw adventure is only a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne, 1 hour from the heart of Gippsland and just over 3 hours from the Mornington Peninsula. One tank of petrol is all it takes to get here and back from Melbourne! Mt Baw Baw is a year-round resort, catering for snow enthusiasts during the white season and outdoor adventurers, hikers and bike riders during the green season. Given the nature of the terrain & the lift network, Mt Baw Baw snowfields are ideal for the beginner to intermediate snowboarder, downhill & cross country skier during winter. With 30 hectares of groomed runs, seven ski lifts, three snow play areas, 10kms of groomed x-country ski trails and unlimited terrain amongst the snowgums to explore, you will be hard pressed to find a better outdoor venue so close to Melbourne. Mt Baw Baw is a family friendly alpine resort, offering dog sled tours during winter, Kids Club, bungee tramp and family accommodation packages. During the warmer months, Mt Baw Baw comes alive with spectacular wildflowers. The Resorts walking trails link to a wider network of trails within the Baw Baw National Park and also the Great Alpine Walking Trail. The Resort is also home to a national standard downhill mountain bike track which is open during the Green Season. The Village Restaurant is open year round offering delicious food and spectacular views across West Gippsland. The village, with its friendly atmosphere and modern facilities caters for the day tripper and long term visitor.

Utterly dissatisfied! I booked a winter snow holiday but was greeted with a horrid muddy holiday instead... mud everywhere. No snow. Raining non-stop. Toboggans Slopes muddy . Practically nothing else to do. Should reduce permit fees and pump up fake snow!

A small village, less facilities but friendly and accessible. Needs a good coffee outlet. Can run low on snow as it's lower than other VIC resorts. This can mean very restricted ski runs as they don't have grooming/snow making facilities like others. Cheaper lift tickets...More
