Whistlers good for partying and "when" they get good snow, but if your going all the way to Canada I would recommend going inland

Your uncle got it jacked up on big tyres?

Is that pretty early in the season to open? We don't open until June most years or even July

Back to news
Buller first to open in 09!
29/04/2009


In a special this weekend only celebration Mt Buller is throwing open the resort to the public this Saturday and Sunday to share the amazing 35cm of early snow blanketing the resort.

“This is the earliest we’ve opened a lift and ski run in the history of Mt Buller resort. The closest was 45 years ago when we opened on the 16 May in 1964, “said Laurie Blampied General Manager of Buller Ski Lifts.

“It’s so exciting to have such early and extensive falls so we decided to seize the opportunity, open up early for a special weekend and share it with everyone.”

“Mt Buller will be the only resort open in Australia this weekend and we look forward to welcoming everyone who has been eagerly waiting to dust off their skis and experience the magical feeling of being up in the snow.”

Just three hours drive from Melbourne, roads are clear and open to Mt Buller and there is currently no resort entry fee.

Buller Ski Lifts will have the new 6-seater Holden Express Chairlift in operation for skiers, boarders and also sightseeing on Saturday and Sunday with equipment and clothing hire available in the Ski School building and the Arlberg Hotel.

Details:

• Saturday 2 May & Sunday 3 May only.
• Special price ticket: Just $20 for adults, children and sightseers. 2009 season lift pass holders will receive a complimentary lift ticket.

* Visitors are reminded to check back at mtbuller.com.au closer to the weekend to confirm weather and conditions as they can change suddenly.

Plus I still get my gear for next to nothing (about 70% off) so I get new everything every year - regardless of how much it's been used
Plus they went broke

70% off? So your new skis are still $500 RRP of rossi is ridiculous!

Since when did they go broke? They've been bought and sold a few times recently, but that didn't effect NZ business

Yeah new ones are around $500. RRP for Rossi is similar to most ski brands of that quality. K2 are only cheaper because they have less technology and are made in China

I cant wait for the season to start.My brother just bought a GNu banana wide 156 today, which is alot smaller than we usually run.Should work well as a "throw around" board to have some with.
