Plan the Journey

Stock up before you Arrive

The Alpine Store is your one stop shop on mountain for snowboard hire, as well as winter gear to purchase and Mt Baw Baw souvenirs. The shop is located in the middle of the Mt Baw Baw village, just opposite the Alpine Bistro building.

The Alpine Store stocks a basic grocery range including bread and milk however the range is not what you will find in a supermarket so we suggest that you bring your own supplies to be sure you will have what you want when you are staying. Remember to fill the car up with petrol before leaving the valley to head up the mountain as there is no fuel available for purchase on the mountain.

  •     Snowboard hire
  •     Toboggan hire
  •     Snow clothing and accessories sales
  •     Souvenirs
  •     Basic Groceries

Check the Weather

Be prepared for all conditions as the weather can change rapidly in the Alps. Avoid driving up in bad weather, ensure you have warm, waterproof clothing and footwear and a tube of sunscreen. Clothing is also available to hire on the mountain. We highly recommend checking the Mountain Report before heading up the mountain.
