Location

Pros

The closest ski resort to Melbourne. A family-friendly resort. Perfect to 'experience' snow. One of the most-extensive cross-country trail networks in the world.

Cons

Because of its low altitude, snow can be marginal in poor years, and at the start and end of a season. However, Lake Mountain has a reputation as a spring mountain, so don't discount skiing there until well into October in a good year.
