Tell me more abt Mt Buller / Mt Hotham

When is the best time to experience snow?

Which of the two is more attractive?

Which of the two is more suitable for a child of nine?

Thanks for your info which will help me to decide my next destination.

I am planning to go to either Mt Buller, Mount Hotham or any Mountain with Snow during Aus Winter mid-Jul next year. I will go with my wife and children (18, 13 & 8 yrs old). Plan to stay 2d 1 n on Mountain. We want to see show first time in our life. We will travel from Melbourne.

There are too many accommodation on the web for Mt Buller, Mt Hotham & etc. Appreciate if anyone can share which Mountain is recommended, as well as on mountain accommodation and etc. We are budget travellers which do not look for luxury accommodation and trip.

@2 Mt Stirling is not much closer to Melb than Buller - and you have 9km of dirt road instead of bitumen. Maybe you mean Lake Mountain or Mt Donna Buang, perhaps Mt Baw Baw?

@10 No snow on the ground in May normally, except for an occasional snow shower some years.

OP - the 'Hotham' airport is closer to Dinner Plain, so you could consider this village as an alternative to the busier, often more expensive and more exposed Hotham village. You could get the free shuttle up to Hotham one day for a look around. Plan for August in Dinner Plain and you may see a dog sled race: visitdinnerplain.com/Pages/Events/43-Dinner_…

Commercial flights aren't operating into Mount Hotham airport this year; there's a chance that they may not do so next year as well. Just something to consider! The closest airport is Albury (ABX), with a charter flight or shuttle available from there.
