Lake Mountain Alpine Resort

The closest  ski resort to Melbourne, Lake Mountain Alpine Resort can be reached in under 2 hours - perfect for a day trip.
The drive up the Black Spur takes you through the stunning forest of Mountain Ash and fern gullies.

At Marysville, the road to Lake Mountain still bears the signs of the 2009 bushfires, but it's great to see patches of green regrowth amongst the charred trees.
The 30 minute drive up the hill is where the excitement builds as much as the incline. Who will spot the first sign of snow on the side of the road?
