    Hi guys,
    I'm new to the forum (pardon the bad formatting), started snowboarding last season (only got 2 days) but I'm hooked! Been going bonkers waiting for the snow season and now I can't make my way up affordably:headbang:.
    I'm an office worker so only have the weekends to do trips. Haven't managed to get any chains for the car yet as cash is a bit tight at the moment (don't trust the car to handle itself on icy roads either).

    Just wondering if anyone has a spare seat or is looking to organise a day trip up to buller this coming weekend? or any other weekend for that matter ;)

    Might be heading up this weekend (Saturday) what area are you guys in?
    If i go up solo i usually leave car in Mansfield and bus it, if going up with mates drive to the
    top, works out cheaper splitting entry etc.

    I'm in Oakleigh.
    would be good if we get a crew together and kick in for fuel/entry/red bull.
    I was a skier, now converted to a boarder ;)

    keep me posted as well. I'm looking to hit either falls or buller this weekend.
    Anyone up for the night ski as well?

    After night skiing in the States back in Feb, I felt like getting off the plane at Tullamarine, driving straight up to Buller and demanding a refund for every time I've paid money for what laughingly passes for night skiing here!

    Try head torch and glow sticks.
    Might improve the experience.

    Did that - it was very trippy! (Some people also had prismatic glasses and LED torches with changing colors)

    Did Jimi Hendrix ski, I wonder...?

    Hi guys, long time reader first time poster, I am thinking of driving to Buller this Saturday by myself, so there are few spaces left in the car if anyone is interested in car pooling to share costs. Or I am also happy to be chucked in yours too.

    I am an intermediate boarder and in Glen iris. Cheers.
