Mt Buller News

Happy birthday Buller and Stirling

-

GREAT snowfalls over the past few weeks (estimated at more than 80cm) has seen two of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling’s keenest snow trail participan­ts chomping at the harness to get going.

And just recently these two mountain identities celebrated their sixth birthday.

Huskies Buller and Stirling were actually born on Mt Buller and each year return to take their roles in the sled dog Husky team.

The RMB staff at the time of Buller and Stirling’s arrival, Amber Gardner and Katie Bowker, asked if owners and operators of Australian Sled Dog Tours, Brett and Neisha Hadden, could name a puppy after Buller.

“So we did, but thought we cannot name one after Mt Buller and not name one after Mt Stirling, so that’s how they got their names,” Neisha said.

“Buller is a gentle boy who runs in team or wheel position and Stirling is an outgoing girl who runs in team, swing or lead position.

“They are popular with the clients who often want photos with them both as a souvenir of their visit to Mt Buller and Mt Stirling.”
