Forecast

 It's a wintry and crisp start to our Grand Final Saturday up here with a decent chance of snow showers this morning following a nice dusting of a couple of centimetres overnight.  Heading for a top of just 3 degrees it will feel cooler thanks to the south-westerly breeze that is whipping around and blowing light snow off the rooftops and trees.Another cold night is forecast back to serious snowmaking temperatures of -4 and a cloudy Sunday with sunshine expected for the start of the week.

Skiing & Boarding

A nicely groomed, softening and good to very good cover on runs open.  A light dusting of fresh adds to the mix this morning and a nice cold night has the runs set up well for your Saturday turns.  Groomers on the Summit, Howqua, Burnt Hut and Shakey will all deliver this morning.  The parks have also had some attention overnight so will be worth checking out.

Dos: I've heard a rumour that one of the restaurants/properties on Mt Buller is trying to buy the Ski Lift company, supposedly to gain more control over the running of the mountain and favour their own properties/restaurants. Has anyone else heard of this as well?
I've heard plenty of rumours but this one... o_O

The road will be closed between Arlberg and the Summit until it is clear of snow, could be a few weeks. UPDATE The road is clear to the summit, they have cleared it. Many of the hard core locals/regulars skied last weekend, Saturday the better of the two days. Sunday some drizzle in the morning with thick fog at times in the arvo. We skied till last ride, Sun Valley/Standard.

Yeah thinking of a quickie one down fast one, then have a look at any potential runs in the chutes... even if i have to skin from the top of BB1 it aint far...

If the road is open you would be able to drive up to the summit carpark. Looks like the northside has melted quick, but the snowmaking areas on the southside look skiable for sure. Burnt Hut also looks skiable, so i'd say with the loading on Fast One you'd be able to ski that for sure. Chutes may have rocked up.

What about the chutes, stuff in that general area? Worth a little skin up this weekend? Is the resort going to mind if i try and skin up to the summit?

Any areas still skiable on the mountain? Bourke Street? Was thinking of a quick trip up just for the hell of it.

Well, I guess we could make some exceptions to lift renamings, in that case. Hmm, for starters. . . Kofler T, Coffee & Beer Bar A-pricot-is-the-Bomb Express Snacky Knees Grimus Yummus Grinus Schnappus

Disappointing but cant complain really as I reckon Buller has been the resort most likely to invest in on slope infrastructure in the last decade

jezzak: Thankyou all for your detailed reports and continual posting in this group throughout this season! ALSO, does anyone know the status of the dam and other developments for Buller over the summer? (BB1 replacement, ect.)
