An addition to the natural snow, the resort will take advantage of the sub-zero temperatures to blast their snow guns across the mountain.
General Manager of Buller Ski Lifts Laurie Blampied has welcomed the snow fall and said the mountain community is looking forward to opening further terrain and lifts as soon as possible.
“While our snow making team has done an amazing job in June, a big snowfall like this is always welcomed and we’re very pleased to see this weather system arrive. Our team is ready to open more terrain and get more lifts turning which has everyone on the mountain excited to get out and enjoy some great skiing and snowboarding on the fresh cover.”
“It’s a wonderful way to finish up the school holidays and there are plenty of smiling faces in the resort this morning out enjoying the change in conditions,” Blampied said.
As of Friday morning, Mt Buller had an average cover of up to 42cm of snow and 4 lifts operating, with these numbers expected to grow over the weekend.
The snowfall has arrived at an ideal time, with Mt Buller hosting the Burton Cattleman’s Rail Jam in the Village Square on Saturday evening. Now in its 10th year, the event sees Australia’s best snowboarders tackling the daunting Cattleman’s stair set for $10,000 worth of cash and prizes.
