Reprieve on summer gate entry to Mt Buller

THE Mount Buller Mount Stirling Alpine Resort Management Board (ARMB) has confirmed it will not be charging a summer gate entry for the 2015/2016 season.

The gates will, however, be manned by staff as they investigate “resort visitation, provide visitor information services and gain further insights into visitation patterns and habits”, John Huber, ARMB chief executive officer, said this week.

“Resort management has spent considerable time, effort and resources, investing in and growing the resorts’ summer product offering – to this end resort management has been investigating a range of opportunities to generate summer revenue streams,” Mr Huber said.

His comment follow an ARMB board meeting last Friday, when the issue of summer gate entry was discussed.

Prior to this, the Mansfield community had been awash with suggestions that a summer entry fee would be charged as of January 1, with figures touted as being $10 per car or $35 for a season’s pass.

However, the ARMB has officially quashed rumours, with this season to remain free for visitors.
