Resort Operating Hours

As Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is a day resort, the entry gate is closed between the hours of 4.30pm & 8am.

OPTIONS FOR PURCHASING YOUR RESORT ENTRY TICKETS

PURCHASE AT THE GATE ON THE DAY

You may purchase your resort entry ticket at the gate on the day via EFTPOS if there are tickets available.

PRE-PURCHASE ONLINE PRIOR

You can pre-purchase your resort entry ticket online via our website prior to arrival. The benefit of pre-purchasing online is that it elevates the risk of missing out on the day if we are ‘sold out’ once the carparks have been filled. If pre-purchasing online, you will be emailed your resort entry ticket which you must show upon entering on the day. (It is best to download your ticket or screenshot it as there is no phone reception at the resort entry gate)

Declared wheel chain days

Here at Lake Mountain, snow or wheel chains are not required unless it has been declared a “chain day”.

For declared chain days, all 2WD vehicles must carry chains until advised to fit by Lake Mountain staff. Those entering the resort in 4WD or AWD vehicles do not require wheel chains however, you must know how to engage the 4WD or AWD setting if required.

 

FAQs

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

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.

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

Yes, you can!  

Our on-mountain equipment and clothing hire outlet stocks a large range of sizes in both shell and insulated jackets and pants. As well as snow boots to keep your feet nice and dry. If wanting to XC-Ski we also have equipment available for those in our snow sports department.

The only things you cannot hire are gloves, socks, goggles and beanies, due to hygiene regulations. 

Don’t stress though, we have a range of kids through to adults gloves and beanies for sale in our retail shop up on the mountain. With gloves starting from around $20, you’ll be set to tackle the wintery conditions. 

Toboggans & ski equipment are available to hire at the resort, with prices for the 2024 season here!

 

Lake Mountain Alpine Resort | Where is the lake? select-arrow

Funnily enough, there is no Lake at Lake Mountain! The mountain was named after the surveyor George Lake.

Unfortunate for those planning on bringing their boat!

What time should I arrive? select-arrow

What’s a toboggan? select-arrow

Pronounced TO-BOG-GAN,  a long light and narrow plastic-moulded sled (a vehicle that slides over snow) sometimes curved up in front, used for sliding down slopes. It’s a lot of fun! 

At Lake Mountain, we have our main village toboggan run and a couple other toboggan runs depending on snow conditions. For more information on tobogganing, you can read our tobogganing safety tips article here. 

Toboggans are available for hire from our rental department on resort, with prices for the 2024 season here!
