‘SASKI’ - the name con­jures up vi­sions of snowy Scan­di­na­vian scenes, but in re­al­ity it is hun­dreds of South Aus­tralians who just love com­ing to Mt Buller for snow sports.

Pem­broke School is one of the most ded­i­cated sup­port­ers of the SASKI pro­gram and this year cel­e­brated its 10th Snows­ports trip to Mt Buller.

Trip co­or­di­na­tor Mike Howard said they have tried school trips at Hotham, but find that Mt Buller is bet­ter.

“We ski out from the Whitt each morn­ing and ev­ery­thing we need is lo­cated close to us, and most im­por­tantly, moun­tain wise, it’s harder for the kids to get lost,” he said.

Mr Howard has been or­gan­is­ing the snow trip since 2002 and com­mented that this year is their big­gest con­tin­gent ever - some 57 stu­dents and 11 staff.
