More on the way

Mt Buller News - - NEWS -

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.
