Day trips to Buller will be tough to get accom on hill or Mansfield?
on hill is way easier and much less contact with others traveling to and from each day. At Best, it is 45 minutes each way to Mansfield and can be much longer.
I would expect the opposite. We don't really know the landscape just yet, but accommodation providers remaining open will be keen to fill rooms.
Fair enough; its so hard to work out what is feasible. Air b and b'd for mid August so we shall see
If Nth Side doesn't open I doubt Ill be doing day trips, not keen on riding a KungFlu bus to the village.
So you need over night accommodation?
Yes. Plenty of on hill accommodation available
Yep just 1 nights accomodation for 1 person; the hill for 1 is usually too $$ so landed air b and b and don't mind driving up / getting a bus for 1.5/2 days max skiing
Try Merrijig Motor Inn. The bus picks you up from there
Cheers, have done Delatite apartments before in a group; hard part is most of the accom is for 4-6 peeps not easy riding solo for close to hill accom
It has been open... for a week or so.
Traditionally at Buller for the first week of September - generally speaking how are the snow levels normally the last few years ?
Is it normally pretty solid levels of snow or a bit hit and miss in your experience ?
Never hit the mountain that late in the year so just curious..............
it's been good, often with no crowds. End of September, October can get a bit thin.
One of the best days I had last year was just after the first week of September.
As many on here say, September is the best time to ski
any obs from anyone who has been up lately? due to be skiiing Thurs / Fri next week but i reckon its looking hit and miss cover wise
Try the 2020 Reports thread.
Dave, you working in the RMB building?........... Believe schools out for winter
I believe school out today as a precaution
i may end up just booking 2 days... next week if the gut feel is this is a once off covid surely be bit shit if it goes further for everyone up there !
