Fresh falls make it pic­ture per­fect

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

WHITE flakes fell for the ma­jor­ity of last week - on and off over five days bring­ing white cov­er­ings to both Mt Buller and Mt Stir­ling.

As the snow depth rose so did the num­ber of lifts open­ing for skiers and vis­i­tors - 20 out of 22 is ex­cel­lent.

With an­other 9cm of fresh dry snow overnight on Thurs­day night it made an ex­cel­lent start for ‘first tracks’ Fri­day morn­ing.

Skiers and board­ers were look­ing at a very good cover on most open ar­eas.

Ski Pa­trol rec­om­mended Burnt Hut as pick of the day on Fri­day (but the mar­ket­ing depart­ment was get­ting ex­cited to take Seven News’ Jane Bunn for a few laps of Bunn Run).

The fore­cast for this past week­end was also fan­tas­tic and vis­i­tor num­bers were ex­pected to soar even bet­ter than the record crowds the week­end be­fore when it is be­lieved that more than 1600 cars were parked on the moun­tain.

The Sky­line and Koflers ter­rain parks were look­ing stel­lar in the fresh snow.

On Fri­day morn­ing moun­tain folk rose to see snow still fall­ing and the ex­cite­ment build­ing.

Satur­day started off as a spec­tac­u­lar day with sunny con­di­tions ahead of ex­pected snow falls overnight.

Snow show­ers were ex­pected to con­tinue from Sun­day on and off right through this week.

For those just want­ing a ‘snow ex­pe­ri­ence’ there is live en­ter­tain­ment in the Vil­lage Square - The D²Drum­line are Aus­tralia’s Pre­mier march­ing per­cus­sion en­ter­tain­ment and ed­u­ca­tion en­sem­ble per­form­ing this Satur­day, Au­gust 5 from 2pm.
