Discussion in 'Mt Buller' started by CarveMan, Oct 5, 2009.
Similar was discussed recently in another thread. Much frustration, many stupids.
The very best place to overtake is just before an overtaking lane.
they are about to start the same thing from Molesworth to the Alexandria turn off, so don't
get too used to the 100km, I'm sure this will be another year of 60km/h just along the road
a little more
A helicopter is sounding good.
And if you haven't been up summit road lately, it has a speed hump and 10km/h speed limit.
The shuttle bus (bike) visitors really love that.
Oh my god, no! Nooooo! Say it aint so!
I love that stretch of road. It's such a beautifully picturesque drive!
Those fugly guardrails all the way to Yarck?! That's environmental vandalism right there. Then what, Yarck to Mansfield too?! Oh, Vic Roads, way to ruin a magnificent landscape - may you writhe in hellfire and damnation for all eternity.
And then a bit longer.
Total waste of taxpayers money
A question for those in the know; can you ride the Buller gravity MTB trails without having to buy a pass for or use the chairlift? As in, am I allowed to ride them if I ride up or shuttle summit road? Thanks!
Well Yea to Moleworth has been reinstated to 100km/hr. No bs, drove it this morning.
Only to Queens Birthday W/e. Watch drop back then.
Yeah, that would not suprise me at all. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen
IMO, having driven that stretch a lot last year, much higher chance of accidents at 80k with frustrated/angry drivers
Seeing some stuff on FB that the second dam has ministerial approval.
Can't see anything here though: https://lodgement.planning-permits.delwp.vic.gov.au/search-register?ApplicationNo=&Address=buller
But I might be looking in the wrong place as I do remember seeing the application previously.
This is the application, it says it is complete.
Now who going to pay for it?
BSL has never been shy about paying for essential infrastructure especially when snowmaking is concerned.
Their owners do know a thing or two about building big things.
That is good news. Would be great to see it actually built.
It might be this one.
My feeling they will want RMB to pay for it as it benefits everyone.
Fake news. Planning permit ≠ ministerial approval or funding. The way that post was worded sounded like the bulldozers were already on site!
Easier to apologise than ask for permission.
How do you reckon the Shakey Knees chair got built?
Dave can you please explain what you mean. Are you saying further government approvals (not taking into account funding) are needed?
Slightly OT, but when they were building the GDE (road) in Canberra they had to clear some trees. The appeals went on for ages through the planning process. Finally the go-ahead was given. The people opposing the tree clearing went into court the next day and got an injunction. The builders just shrugged their shoulders; they organised every large bulldozer they could lay their hands on and cleared everything overnight. They couldn't put the trees back in now could they ?
Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Resort Management CEO Contract
There has been an increasing level of interest and enquiry regarding the make-up of the RMB Executive and Board for 2018. At this time the Board constituents for 2018 – 2021 remain unknown. However the local Executive is taking shape and as positions are filled they will be announced to all stakeholders.
A vital overlay to these structural modifications is the role of CEO. 2017 was an amazing snow season, in no small way boosted by the inaugural creation of (pre) Opening Day snow guarantee via the BSL/RMB joint venture Snow Factory. But it will be no shock to you when I say that from a land management and governance perspective 2017 was a tough year. The Ombudsman’s report, senior management changes, long season, and the Board Governance review created pressure and uncertainty for many of the RMB staff and this flowed through to many of our stakeholders.
In spite of those pressures, progress has been made on restoring stakeholder trust, addressing long standing issues and getting on with looking forward. We also believe the recent management restructure is an important part of establishing a cohesive and high performance team which will benefit everyone on the mountains.
Given the changes over the past year, and that there will be both a new Board and a new Governance system from 1 April, the current Board want to assure a degree of continuity and certainty as we head into Winter 2018. Therefore I am pleased to announce that Mark Bennetts has accepted a 2 year contract extension which will see him remain CEO until June 2020. This lengthening of tenure will provide constancy in leadership and facilitate the smooth continuation of work already underway, and importantly will enable the delivery of the new dam to be completed with a familiar, stable executive.
On behalf of the Board I hope you will congratulate Mark as he continues to provides direction and stability for the team. We look forward to an exciting and rewarding period for everyone at Mt Buller and Mt Stirling.

Is this good or bad for Buller?
Good. I know someone who was very senior in the RACV (where he came from) and spoke very highly of him.
I believe the board should be known within the next fortnight
I have heard that the new speed limit in the village will be 20kmh this winter.
For drivers or skiers?
am sure the taxis will be adhering to that........
Yet you can’t pick up family members in the car parks for ‘safety’ reasons.
The whole hypocrisy regarding parking and transport at Buller is extraordinary.
But I guess I got the last laugh after my little incident when the former Chairman parked in our spot & the CEO didn’t respond to my email for a fortnight. The Ombudsman’s report made for great reading f.
And all the RMB vehicles
Do we get a new dam this year?
"Antarctic blast to Punish Australia"
If that's punishment, then punish me good, baby!!
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned another trip to Mt Terrible was on the cards. Mission accomplished and a terrific weekend for it. The tracks are wild but it’s a gorgeous drive, especially with towering Eucalypts in snow. The snow had fallen to low levels already on the Matlock Track with the southern sides in cloud, the northern side in sunshine. Mt Terrible summit at 1325 metres was sunny with occasional mist rolling through.
@2ESki I took a few photos of the Mt Terrible Hut. There are a coup;le of picnic tables and benches out front, although if we’d had fire in the pit as we did a couple of weeks ago it would have turned into a swimming pool with all the snow in it this time. We caught afew misty views of Mt Buller through its cloud cover, Little Mt Buller poked out in the sun. To the left you can make out Little Buller Spur, Wombat and Wombat Bowl looking primed. Behind that you can also see a little of the South Side and Bull Run bowls. Tomorrow’s plan is to have a look from a much closer perspective.
Thanks, was always a plan for a mate and myself to sleep out under the old veranda and watch the sun come up over Buller, unfortunately he's no longer with us, so might have to do it myself one day, even the kids love the view from up there.
The 4wd guys have been smashing this track for a couple of weeks now so no wonder you said the track was wild.
Great shots - a regular stop on our Jamieson/WP bike weekends.
Drove this mining implement today. Have had plenty of experience with 1HZ 70s but never a VDJ. Would buy a GXL because it’s nice to have a little luxury (read: carpet) but good to get a feel for it.
The V8 is a sweet thing, but it’s a shame this body style wasnt offered here with the 1HD-FTE as I’d be all over one like white on rice. Such a great size - plenty of room without the ‘land yacht’ proportions of a 100/200
Rear track being 100mm narrower than front is the dumbest thing to happen in the history of the Landcruiser.
It’s a beautiful area. We often go up to Mt Terrible but we’re on the closer side of the ranges than Jamieson. There used to be a small gold mining township in the area at Enoch’s Point. It has some interesting history too. We have a little old shack there and often see groups of trail bike riders and 4WD groups through here too
If I had the cash a fully-optioned 79 series would be the shit.
Maaate just do what all the WA FIFO players do. $85k truck, $50k worth of ARB catalog, all on the one convenient monthly drip feed payment.
With the recent downturn in the market, Malibu stickers are only putting out an extra 8kw, not the standard 10.
Jetpilot is good for 9.
Pleased to see you got out of Franga alive mate!
And only $1000 per injector and only 8 of them when they go
Would still like one though
I think they can be sourced for around $400, that’s OE Denso. Can you replace them individually?
Was touch and go for a while there...
Anyone here get done a few weeks ago for speeding through Molesworth? It was a Saturday morning about 5am ish.
I just heard that in a 2 hour period, approx. half the cars got caught, and about half of those were doing in excess of 30kph over the limit!!! One car was double the limit.
Speeding, mid winter, through towns on the Buller run? Tell me more.
