Whether travelling by plane, helicopter, coach or car using our below snow transfer service, you’ll be at Mt Buller before you know it. Only 3 hours from Melbourne, the drive to Mt Buller is as easy as it is beautiful.

VIP Below SnowLINE Transfer Service

Breathtaker Hotel & Spa is the only hotel on the mountain that provides this unique and exclusive service.

From the moment you arrive at the base of the mountain, the luxury begins. You will be greeted by the VIP Transfer team at The Sebel Pinnacle Valley Resort who will take care of your luggage and chauffeur you directly to the hotel. No need for you to worry about snow chains, Resort entry-fee, public car-parks or loading equipment in and out of the Mount Buller taxi service.

One of our highest demand services, the VIP Transfer Service operates throughout the winter ski season from the opening weekend.

Self Drive & Snow Chains

If you choose to tackle the drive up the mountain yourself, the parking attendants will show you where to park your vehicle once you reach the upper car parks of Mt Buller (charges apply). Importantly, leave your handbrake off and your car in gear (as this avoids freezing the brake on). And remember to put antifreeze in your radiator.

Snow taxis will take you from your vehicle to Breathtaker Hotel & Spa (charges apply). Tickets are available online and via the Mt Buller app, pre bookings are highly recommended. All bookings and enquiries are welcome at the Mt Buller transport office. During peak times please allow 1 hour for travel within the mountain village.

During the declared snow season (June – October) you must carry and fit snow chains where directed. Snow chains can be purchased from various outlets in Mansfield. Mt Buller’s wheel chain requirements are decided on a daily basis and are determined by weather forecasts and existing road conditions. Chain requirements may vary between 2-wheel drive (2wd) and 4-wheel drive (4wd) and all-wheel drive (awd) vehicles, as each of these types of cars react differently to snow and icy road conditions.

Daily wheel chain requirements are communicated via the local accommodation providers, retail outlets and authorities who come into contact with people travelling to the resort. They also appear on large flashing roadside billboards as you enter and leave Mansfield and on the daily snow report.
