Mt Buller News
Dean keen on the snow
NAME: Dean Belle.
AGE: Old enough to know better, young enough to make new mistakes.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE: Outskirts of Mansfield with a beautiful view to Buller.
OCCUPATION: Still working that out, in the meantime run the Delatite Hotel.
DO YOU SKI OR SNOWBOARD (OR BOTH): 45 years of skiing (should be better by now), first snowboard lesson last September during lockdown. (Board down, walk up,..repeat.)
WHAT LEVEL OF SKILLS DO YOU HAVE: Think I ski better than I probably do. Love fast and/or fresh, bumps still don’t like my style.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST THIS SEASON:
Leaving my new hotel manager to run the hotel, get out of his way, and spend some real time on the mountain.
DO YOU SKI/SNOWBOARD ANYWHERE ELSE: Thredbo (lived there for 9 years), keen to return to Austria/japan and Canada as soon as the world is vaccinated.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BULLER RUN: Feel good and fast?: Wombat, Steeper and uncrowded?: Slalom Gully, before the bumps grow too big: Tirol down into Cow Camp.
FAVOURITE APRES VENUE AND WHY:
Grimus, reminds me of my time working in Austria, top end hospitality. Will be falling in love with the Moosehead Bar this season, love what Glenn and his team have done there, especially with the live music.
