Answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, reach out to our team at [email protected].

Can I book accommodation at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort? select-arrow

No. There is no on-mountain accommodation available at Lake Mountain, as the facility is for day visitors only in the declared winter season. The closest accommodation is located in Marysville, only 25- 30 minutes away. In winter, the resort gate is locked from 5 pm every night, so visitors have to make their way down the hill to Marysville by 4:30pm for lockout at 5pm. 


Can I bring my dog to Lake Mountain? select-arrow

No, pets of any kind are not permitted at the resort as we are a protected Alpine Environment.

Do I have to prebook anything? select-arrow

Resort entry tickets are only required during the declared snow season (June 8th to October 6th 2024). 

Resort Entry tickets can be purchased at the gate on the day or pre-purchased online via our website. 

Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is subject to closure once the car parks have reached full capacity. This generally occurs over the weekends during the Victorian School Holiday period. To avoid disappointment during these high demand days, we recommend pre-purchasing your resort entry ticket online a few days prior as there will be no tickets available to purchase on the day if the carparks have been filled. Once filled, entry will be based on a 1 in 1 out system which can involve an extended wait time of several hours.

How long will it take to get to Lake Mountain from Melbourne? select-arrow

By car, we suggest allowing between 2 and 2.5 hours when travelling from Melbourne CBD.

Will the Tube Run be open this season? select-arrow

The Tube Run at Lake Mountain is currently not in operation until further notice. This delay is due to essential maintenance being carried out to ensure the safety of all our guests. We are committed to providing a safe, enjoyable and memorable experience. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. In the meantime, we encourage you to explore our other fantastic winter activities available.

Where is the closest place to stay? select-arrow

Marysville is the closest town to Lake Mountain. Located just a short thirty-minute drive from the top of the mountain, this beautiful little town offers a wide array of accommodation, with options suitable for all situations.

I don’t have any snow gear, can I hire some? select-arrow

Yes, you can!

What can I use for tobogganing? select-arrow

We only accept moulded plastic toboggans for tobogganing. This policy is in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all our visitors. Other types of toboggans, including metal, wooden, or inflatable ones are not permitted on our toboggan slopes. Please ensure your toboggan meets these requirements before visiting. If you don’t have a moulded plastic toboggan, you can rent one from our equipment rental department. View the prices for the 2024 season here!
