Buller Ski Lifts will continue operations beyond the 12 July.
This decision has been reached with the well-being and livelihoods of our employees, the community and our guests in mind. Remaining open is not an easy decision however we believe it is in the best interests of our community and regional Victorians.
Health and safety remains paramount as we carefully move forward in accordance with government guidelines for the alpine industry to support our regional economy and the skiers and snowboarders of Victoria.
The latest restrictions have impacted the level of visitors able to come to the resort.
BSL is mindful that staying open may not be viable for some businesses, and the coming days will be difficult as hard decisions are made. We hope our choice to carry on at least gives the option for others to continue if they choose.
This year has been incredibly challenging and this latest test is something we all hoped we wouldn’t have to face. We thank everyone for their tenacity as we tackle this difficult period together.
