Ski in Australia-need suggestion

I am planning a ski trip to Pacific, this is my first time. Since the flight cost to Queenstown is almost double than fly to Melbourne, therefore I have decide to pick Australia and join some day tours from Melbourne afterwards. I need some advices from your expertise as very limited info could be found from the web.
1. Ski Area
Which one is better in snow condition, convenient level and most suitable for my level? (my ski leverl is between beginner to intermediate)
- Falls Creek
- Mt Buller
- Hotham
Would 3 days be enough or too much?

2. I will take public transportation, seems take the coach straight from the Melbourne airport to the ski area would be the most convenient method upon the day of arrival?
which company would you recommend?

3. Any recommendations to stay in the ski area? Prefer convient to the ski slope and close to restaurant (we love eating )

Thank you in advance

The cost of living and ski pass in Australia more than make up the difference in air fare. Australia has some of the most expensive ski passes in the world but not necessarily the best ski resort (in terms of size and terrain).

Fly to AU then join local ski tour to NZ, it should be cheaper.

If you do decide to go to Mt. Buller, go mid-week. Weekend will be very crowded. http://www.mtbuller.com.au/Winter/Mo...ng-Here/Flying

Hotham is further away but it is less crowded and is worth the extra distance (driving).

Personally, I think the Australians are ripping off the tourists.

Nah. Blame the exchange rate. It's not about ripping off the tourists when they charge the locals as much as tourists.

Wrong. Nothing to do with the exchange rate. I felt I was being ripped off even when the exchange rate was below HK$5 to a AUS$

In recent years, the cost of living in Australia is very high together with the rising value of the Aussie $, making Australia a very expensive place to visit.

Last couple of years, the Yen was very high but now the Yen has dropped by almost a third, making it much cheaper to visit.

In general, Australian ski passes are expensive, in some cases even more expensive than some of the top American and European resorts. The Japanese ski passes are less expensive compare with the Australian, but the Japanese ski resorts are tiny.

As for service, personally, I have not noticed any service in Japan nor Australia (I meant those ski resorts that I have been to). If you talk about service, nothing can beat the American ski valet service, but the American expect you to tip them generously.

For food quality, the food in Japan and Australia are OK, personally I think the best food is in France and Switzerland.

I have not been to Japan skiing for over 5 years, so my comment might be outdated.
