More on the way
W TH fresh snow on the ground last week it was no surprise that car parking was at a premium over the weekend.
Some 1350 cars were parked for day visitors on Saturday and more than 1400 on the Sunday with Monday not uite so busy but still a lot of visitors crowding the mountain.
This was good to see especially with families en oying school holidays on Buller.
On Monday, Lauren Staveley reported the mountain was bathed in clear skies and cold temperatures.
But on the horizon was forecast more snow to roll in later Monday and continue through this week.
The cold overnight low of -2.4 made for firm, hard packed snow on Monday.
With a 95 per cent chance of snow it was smiles all round for mountain folk.
We are expecting the flakes to continue falling throughout the week, Lauren said.
There is a good to very good cover out there on the open terrain.
The groomers did an excellent ob last night smoothing Family Run, Little Buller Spur, Summit and Shakey Knees.
Little Buller Spur is the pick of the day today so
ll see you out there, she reported.
