Lake Mountain is Melbourne’s closest Alpine Resort; offering family friendly fun and adventure all year round along with the opportunity to create long lasting memories.
Located 22 kilometres from the picturesque Marysville township, Lake Mountain transforms into a winter wonderland during the colder months with activities to suit all ages. Build a snowman, take a toboggan ride, make snow angels or have a snowball fight – Lake Mountain is the perfect destination for snow play. Explore the magnificent trail network with snowshoes or on cross country skis or walk to the summit to soak in the amazing views. Book a lesson with our experienced ski instructors or introduce the kids to snowboarding on the ‘Burton Riglets Park’.
Over the warmer months, escape to the cooler alpine climate for bushwalking, mountain biking and our adventure activities. Experience the exhilaration of the 240 metre dual Flying Fox, slide down the Tube Run or join in a game of Laser Skirmish. Explore the extensive track and trail network on foot or hire a mountain bike from the Lake Mountain Café that is open for refreshments Friday to Sunday from 8am to 5pm. There is also 20 kilometres of single track, suitable for the novice to experienced mountain biker.
As the closest of the Seven Peaks to Melbourne that form part of the Alpine Ascent Challenge, the Lake Mountain climb presents riders with a challenging 20.78 kilometre ascent but are well rewarded with spectacular views when they reach the top.
Only 2 hours from the heart of Melbourne … Lake Mountain Alpine Resort’s passion for the great outdoors will inspire you to become adventurous all year round!
