    Bit of a gratuitous plug, but if you're considering a midweek day trip to Buller, this week would be great. The slopes are virtually empty and with fresh snow falling, this could be the ideal week to go up for an early season warm-up.

    Next week is school holidays for a few private schools, so numbers will still be low.

    Not that this is saying much, but the snow right now is as good as any time last season.

    I can vouch for the lack of people. Beautiful day on sunday, snow (especially on LHS of summit) was sublime all day, and there was no one there!

    Wish i could take a day off work...

    In the back of my mind I was a little wary of sounding like ASB [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Guess it's cos I don't gush that carp every day that I can get away with the odd plug...

    How busy would this weekend? My hunch is that it wouldn't be since Melburnians have not "heard" about the snow at Buller yet.

    It would be awesome to ski down LBS and having the whole run to your self! [​IMG]

    Hey CM, if I came up to Buller at some stage, can I get a private lesson with you? [seriously!]

    For sure, it would have to be midweek though, PM me when you know your dates.
