Mount Buffalo Ski School is a division of Adventure Guides Australia. During the snow season we operate out of Mount Buffalo’s Dingo Dell / Day Shelter and Cafe with products that include toboggan hire, snow shoe rambles, ski lessons and ski tours. We also have a small gear shop set up at the day shelter selling socks, beanies, gloves and more.

Mount Buffalo Ski School has toboggans, snowshoes and “Hok” skis for hire from the day shelter/cafe at Dingo Dell (there are no hire facilities at Cresta Valley). The Dingo Dell shop also stocks a small range of ski socks, gloves and beanies and other basic items such as sunscreen.
