Buller X at­tracts top skiers


THERE were plenty of peo­ple to help Tony ‘Harro’ Har­ring­ton cel­e­brate the launch of the first Buller X con­test this month.

FAM­ILY FUN: On the busiest day of the sea­son so far the Al­ghamdi fam­ily from Saudi Ara­bia en­joyed their first ex­pe­ri­ence in the snow. The fam­ily of five chil­dren and four adults were thrilled to be able to to­bog­gan down a small slope near the Magic For­est. Mr Al­ghamdi is in Aus­tralia study­ing and has his fam­ily with him. An es­ti­mated 10,000 vis­i­tors ar­rived on Mt Buller for Satur­day, July 9 cre­at­ing traf­fic de­lays to the vil­lage - but all were sorted ad­di­tional bus shut­tles from Mer­im­bah to the top.
