Can anyone help with a pic of the snow at Buller please? The cams are all fogged out or covered with snow! (Well, except the toboggan park!) So I assume it's going to be good tomorrow when we head up!

Thanks in advance!

So Buller posts on FAcebook "lifts opening at 7am tomorrow" but don't specify what lifts and if they are open to the public or only to "first track" holders.

Do they expect people will just rock up 1.5hr early and hope for the best?

Looks like they took your advice this morning!

They must be daft. Why would you announce those plans at half an hour before you opened the lifts.

Why not announce them the night before so people could plan to come up earlier.

It would only benefit people already on the hill.

My daughter has just been taken down to Mansfield by ambulance on the way to Wangarratta hospital for a check up.

She was hit while in a lesson, and has concussion, but they want to do a CT scan to be sure that's all it is.
They have to take her to Wang because of the accident in Bonnie Doon.

Hope all is OK Sandy.
Ditto.

Word back from wife & son that the snow is very good, much better than when we were there in July. Fairly hard and fast, looking forward to the skierX tomorrow.

Well, she's been checked at Wang Hospital and discharged this evening. She can't remember what happened.....

She's most pissed off about missing two days of skiing!!!!!
.... That's my girl!!!!

Good to hear Sandy!

Seems it was quite an eventful/tragic weekend for Buller and surrounds.
