What has happened to the Bourke Streets cam which updated 24/7? The Bluff View cam should also be made 24/7.

2ESki: If it's cheaper mid week all the better, I haven't skied Buller mid week for 30 years, refuse to pay so much to go skiing and then spend 60% of the day standing in a queue for a lift

Funnily enough, just a couple of hours ago, I saw 3 "Mt Buller branded" mercs on the back of a car trailer on Eastlink.

TOFF: ... would have had some market research that said something like 90% of mercedes drivers like skiing etc They would then look at how to have some exposure.

TOFF: Probably not much but the marketing focus works differently to that. MB would have had some market research that said something like 90% of mercedes drivers like skiing etc They would then look at how to have some exposure.
For sure. We supply skis every year to MB Toorak to dress up a car in the showroom.

Froff Life: How much marketing leverage/benefit can a company even get from naming a chairlift...? I can understand naming rights to a stadium or something...

yes, that question did come up. The reply was, Buller is subsidizing Stirling by I think it was $40k* per year, could be wrong on the figure, so the subsidizing is going the other way. That I expect will be because of the very low numbers of visitors to Stirling, just look at the entry records at the end of each year.

CarveMan: Just got back from the ratepayers association AGM and the CEO of the RMB presented. Basically the push is to get to pay online. Don't pay online, you get shafted and there's no apology for this. The reasoning behind the pricing structure: - Gate entry is reduced if you pay online - $44 - First night of parking is expensive ($44), this is to subsidise the taxi cost which has been halved. - Subsequent nights of parking are much cheaper, as the taxi only needs to be subsidised once, then it's $28 for weekend nights, $8 for weekday nights. .
Was there any mention of different pricing for overnight Stirling visitors? Subsidising Buller taxis by charging folk who have no opportunity to use them is a little off putting
