Had a great day yesterday around Southside and bull run. Pity with the wind direction and lack of vis summit was a no go as am sure there would have been some good skiing there.

Oh and probably the least lift lines I have ever seen on a Saturday at Buller. Southside is always good (as so few people seem to know how to get there) but even bull run/wombat/summit/howqua were pretty much ski straight on.

How the hell does the average snow drop to 92cm overnight with all that snow on the Mt Buller app??

Chamois - they've pushed up the start mound at the top and started the tables for the jumps. Lower half (from the top air) will be used for INterschools later in the week, then they will rebuild for ABOM after this weekend.
Thanks. I won't be there but there are 3 Dads who will be very pleased not to have a long walk.

Big crowd in VS.
Come to see LTB fairy lights and look on to them in silence.

ABS sensor showed up yesterday arvo so I can fix the car.
Was hoping it would arrive Monday to go up today.
Was thinking about just driving up today but got a dash full of warning lights. no ABS or traction control, might not be a good idea.
 
Great day. Sunny start, firm but grippy on the groomers. Cloud rolled in after lunch and is now snowing lightly.

Had a fun day doing some guiding with DWA for kids participating in the Multiclass Interschools event tomorrow. Had a few runs in Southside Bowl at the end of the day with the fam. Conditions were excellent.

Can we get some pics please. I miss that mountain. Is wombat bowl skiable past the first cat track?

Highly doubt it. Wasn't on the weekend. Not even Fed bowl was open below the cat track. And Federation chair is still closed, so the bottom half of Fed bowl still isn't open. Does anyone know if Fed has opened at all this year?
