The Ikon Pass community continues to expand globally with the addition of Mt Buller in Victoria, Australia. Now Ikon Pass holders can take advantage of a year-round winter with access to six Southern Hemisphere destinations. Mt Buller joins Thredbo in New South Wales, Australia, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, and Mt Hutt in New Zealand, and Valle Nevado in Chile, plus 33 destinations in the Northern Hemisphere.
Mt Buller, located in the Alpine National Park just 150 miles outside of Melbourne, has been a beloved destination among skiers and riders in Victoria for 70 years. Mt Buller offers 741 acres and 80 trails for all abilities, with ski-in/ski-out accommodation, dining, spas and activities, all nestled in a bustling village at treeline.
Ikon Pass holders will have seven-day access to Mt Buller on the Ikon Pass with no blackout dates, and five-day access on the Ikon Base Pass, also with no blackout dates.
Bonus Access – TWO Seasons with the Purchase of ONE Pass
In celebration of Mt Buller’s inaugural Ikon Pass season, 19/20 Ikon Pass holders will get bonus early access to Mt Buller for the 2019 season starting this June, along with regular access to the 2020 season.
