Buller fares well with SA school
‘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.
