ABOM Express and Skyline are now in the mix adding some variety and taking the heat off Bourke Street!  The cover has softened up considerably and conditions will be variable.

Northside Express is open from today for sightseeing - tickets online. No tobogganing until further notice.A very limited number of lift tickets for 6-10 July are being released this week.  Later today multi-day (2-7 day) tickets for 13 July-2 August will be released.

Vermillion: Will it ever be made public how many tix are available for sale on a daily basis? If the entire lifted terrain is open how many people would be able to ride on the hill on that day? You can say no, it's OK, at least then I wont be wondering how many tickets are up for grabs each day, or how many more become available as more terrain opens.
Sorry

Dave Clark: Ok folks for those wondering about lift tix we're releasing more multiday tix tomorrow morning for 13 July - 2 Aug. There will also be a limited number for the coming Mon-Fri following our pre-sales to guests who have booked on mtbuller.com.au / 1800 BULLER (or directly with those affiliated properties) Northside will also open for sightseeing and Spurs for hot chocs, toasties, etc. Hope you've all had a chance to check out the new Frosty Bean underneath ABOM on Athlete's Walk. They're baking fresh muffins every morning and personally best coffee I've ever had from ABOM. And please support all the food and bev operators when you can - yes the limit is 20 per room but even then they aren't very busy. Eat out / takeaway when you can! (sorry if this is spammy but they really do need our support)

Fun day Weather: cloudy and cold, full bluebird then partly cloudy. Snow: started off hard, softened throughout the day. Cover in high traffic areas struggling, but no different to normally when terrain first opens. Commentary: no clue what to expect today. No line at the gate, pulled up, temp checked, QR scanned and car pass given. No time at all. Bus felt no different to normal, but as usual will be nice with Northside open. Kooroora looking good, I audibly laughed at the dog and bunny statue. From 9 onward, line was BB was pretty bad. ABOM got the same at times but no longer than 10m. Props to the lifties for marshalling excellently. Lunch was no different to normal aside from the sign up thing. Tirol not open yet so went to cattlemans. Prices reminded me why I dont go to cattlemans. Regarding terrain: shakey was groomed with a massive slushie pile to the right of BB. There is enough snow up top to open it. Standard looking good and will no doubt benefit from the snowmaking. Overall, great first impression of COVID operations, especially compared to the debacle of the other majors.

wolly: It's Just a shame a lot of the general public are not following social distancing rules
I havenít had too many issues in lift queues or in dining areas. Just the occasional frustration in the bus queue, and with people blocking doorways and paths with little regard for others. Thatís not a Buller- or COVID-specific problem though!!
5/7/20 - 7:56pm
JuLe: I must say that the staff all around are doing a great job with the COVID restrictions, but especially in cafes/restaurants. Itís reassuring to see how seriously theyíre all taking it. I was in the ABOM bathrooms and saw a staff member in there meticulously wiping everything... every handle, button, tap. Itís good to see everyone actually caring to do it properly and not being blasť about it. Theyíre doing a good job of enforcing hand sanitiser use too. And despite the challenging circumstances, I havenít come across a single staff member thatís been anything but friendly and helpful. If you could pass on that feedback, then that would be much appreciated!

Hi everyone Went up again for the day yesterday. Totally different story to last weekend! At 9am they were still fitting chains to 2WDs just after Chalet Creek. Snow on the sides well before that but the road was pretty much clear of snow all the way to the carpark besides a little bit at Boggy Corner. Always a magical drive with the freshly fallen snow on the trees! Carpark was a little busier than last Saturday but still very quiet.
No queue for the bus but seating was full. Some customers struggling with the concept of social distancing! Village looking much more like a ski resort this week but still not many around.
Only Bourke Street open for skiing first thing in the morning but cover was pretty much Excellent with wall to wall snow besides a tiny little ditch at the top of Bourke Street Carpet. Cover was fun to ski on with the fresh natural as well as snow making. Queues werenít too bad.
Baldy opened for skiing around 11am. Skiing was ok. Quite thin in places as expected but some fresh snow and snowmaking gave enough options. Visibility was getting quite bad by around this time!
Skyline opened for skiing around 3pm. Visibility was terrible so no pictures sorry!! Cover was quite variable. Very firm in areas, some shrubs sticking through elsewhere, and nice and soft in some places. Good to have it open though. Had to have a little laugh at the snowboarder carnage that the T-bar was causing... about 5 or 6 on the side that struggled with the very firm T-bar line LOL On the dining front... worth mentioning that some places are requiring a minimum spend per customer over lunch time and others are requiring meals to be bought regardless of the time. Fair enough since theyíre trying to manage profits in a limited season, but something to bear in mind if you just want some afternoon tea e.g. coffees and snacks or just some drinks from the bar! Drive down was no problem. No chains for anyone, which seemed obvious, but apparently not to the group trying to untangle some chains off their suspension just before the gnome tree :eek: Looking forward to some more snow! Shouldnít take too much more to get some more open, surely?! Hope youíre all having a great weekend!
