Buller op­er­a­tors do­nate funds to hospi­tal

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

BULLER Ski Lifts have do­nated the lift prof­its of the fi­nal day of the 2017 snow sea­son to Mans­field District Hospi­tal.

General man­ager of Buller Ski Lifts, Lau­rie Blampied, said the com­pany hoped to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the town through the ges­ture.

“Our lo­cal hospi­tal re­lies on do­na­tions from the pub­lic for up­grades and cap­i­tal im­prove­ments,” Mr Blampied said.

“As a lo­cal com­pany with a sig­nif­i­cant role in our re­gional com­mu­nity, Buller Ski Lifts is pleased to be able to make this con­tri­bu­tion to our town and our peo­ple.”

Mt Buller has en­joyed an ex­cel­lent snow sea­son with an early open­ing fol­lowed by bumper snow­falls in Au­gust and Septem­ber.

The ex­cel­lent snow con­di­tions have boosted vis­i­tor num­bers to the re­sort and the lo­cal area this win­ter, and the deep late sea­son snow cover prompted the re­sort to ex­tend the sea­son by an ad­di­tional week, clos­ing last Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 8.
