Snow in the suburbs
RETURNING STUDENTS: Kadina School, from the York peninsula 150kms north of Adelaide, has been coming to Mt Buller for some 25 years and this year was no exception. For the past 13 years they have stayed on Buller itself and although usually accommodated in one lodge this year students were billeted out into several lodges due to numbers. The large group were under the guidance of teacher Dean Angus – an experienced skier and leader.
MT BULLER will go to Melbourne again this year giving residents of Ashburton a snow experience they may otherwise not have.
On Saturday, August 1 the mountain will be dropping 10 tonnes of snow right into the Ashburton High Street shopping centre for young and old to enjoy.
This year’s theme for the snow experience is the movie “Frozen” - with a singing Elsa and Olaf the Snowman who will join Blake the Buller Flake.
The promotion attracts hundreds of children and parents to the street where they can take toboggan rides, jump in a Frozen Jumping Castle and take part in other fun activities.
