    Being a Hotham person I can jump on a bus and get to anywhere I need. I've recently heard that buller has a free shuttle bus service thats gets you to snow and shops etc. We are looking at maybe doing a stint in falls creek next year. Does Falls have the same sort of thing e.g. I can jump on a free bus that drops me to.from the lifts and accom and supermarkets? The last time I stayed at falls I had no choice but to walk a long way just to get a few basic groceries.

    Yes the shuttlebus continuously roams around the village. The Gully chair also runs until 8pm for foot traffic free of charge.

    It started in about 2000, origianly it was the Pope mobile but now they use one of the Yellow Snow Kats they purchased from Charlets Pass.

    It runs a circuit from the Bowl down to Albury Ski club, past Huski and up to Koki then Freauf then it turns back past Koki again, past Julians and turns down past the entry of the Cock and Bull at Pretty Valley, it goes around to Falls Creek Road again below Diana Lodge then heads back to the Bowl via the Hub Shops. It takes about 30 minutes so you can jump off at the hub and do your shopping and be out in tiime to catch it home again.

    I used it Saturday to pick up some wine as it was raining to hard to walk down.
