Mt Buller's wheel chain requirements are decided on a daily basis and are determined by weather forecasts and existing road conditions. Chain requirements may vary between 2-Wheel Drive (2WD) and 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles, as each of these types of cars react differently to snow and icy road conditions.
Daily wheel chain requirements are communicated via the local accommodation providers, retail outlets and authorities who come into contact with people travelling to the Resort. They also appear on large flashing roadside billboards as you enter and leave Mansfield and on the daily snow report. Contact Resort Management directly on (03) 5777 6077 for the most current requirements.
If you are staying in the Resort overnight or traveling beyond the Skating Rink car park area and past the snowline, you are required to carry chains at all times as weather conditions may change unexpectedly throughout the evening.
