New and improved snowmaking at Buller
MT BULLER’S world class snowmaking system has received a boost to the tune of around $500,000, with the purchase of a new submersible pump which will increase snowmaking capacity by 30 per cent and allow the resort to pump 800 litres of snow per second during peak periods.
Also on the slopes, the much-loved Tirol T-Bar has received a major upgrade with the existing diesel motor replaced by an electric version.
In the Village, visitors will have a brand new dining facility to visit in 2015, with the addition of a brand new Asian food court.
Located within the Mt Buller Chalet Hotel, this new food court will offer Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian and Vietnamese food served in an open easy style for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Visitors looking for a unique way to enjoy the alpine environment this season can enjoy an activity often reserved for those lucky enough to visit the northern hemisphere-sled dog tours.
Commencing mid way through the 2014 snow season, the team from Australian Sled Dog Tours will return to Mt Buller with their large team of Siberian Huskies to offer a range of new tours and experiences for visitors, from a meet and greet with the dogs to an extended half-day tour.
EARLY MORNING: Looking every part a post card shot, Mt Buller is a snow lover’s dream.
