    Off Piste has closed on buller, sad to see it go. I always had good service and the stock in the store was always top quality.
    The store is turning into offices for BSL

    OH WELL THINGS MOVE ON
    Roll on winter

    Probably the best retail store on the mountain VSG, that's a bummer.

    OK. There was a co-op store at the old Perisher Centre, mid 80s... all the food and drink was wholesome stuff and cheap. Suburban Sydney or Melbourne prices. Lodge owners and customers would go there to stock up reasonably priced foods etc.

    Then the Packer empire expanded the Centre to its current bogan shopping centre status upstairs, signing the death warrant of the co-op. So, I sympathise.
