Lake Mountain Alpine Resort

Lake Mountain is Melbourne’s closest Alpine Resort, offering family friendly fun and year-round adventure. Just 22 kilometres from the picturesque Marysville township, Lake Mountain is the ideal first-time snow experience, with snow play areas, toboggan runs, snowshoeing trails, plus over 30km of cross-country skiing.

Green season experiences include unique wildflowers, guided walks, cycling, and mountain biking. Year-round activities include flying fox, outdoor laser skirmish and tube run.

In Winter, Lake Mountain transforms into a snowy winter wonderland 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.
