Lovely weather is again masking the reality that there isn’t a whole lot of snow.
With conditions pretty similar to last weekend this report will be brief! No terrain has opened or closed through the week so skiing is again going on Bourke St, Skyline, Little Buller Spur, Upper Wombat and Shakey Knees. The most notable addition is a small terrain park adjacent to Koflers.
Little Buller was more consistent than last weekend due to more skier traffic and less snowmaking, and remains somewhat firm despite the warm temperatures. The snow is definitely thin, but serviceable. Shakey Knees has been good in the mornings but is currently closing in the afternoons to prevent the snow from becoming totally trashed in the warm sun. Again it’s thin but doing the trick. Skyline is great and Bourke St is Bourke St. However it is still by far the best skiing in Victoria right now and anyone looking to come up for school holidays this week will find Buller delivering the most extensive offering in the state.
There is a weather system arriving on Thu/Fri – it’s still too far out to speculate amounts, but at this stage it looks like a classical low pressure system / cold front, which is definitely what we need to break up the current pattern that currently feels more like Autumn than Winter.
This will definitely be appreciated by the school holiday visitors. Interestingly there were very little crowds over the weekend, being the first weekend of the seasonal programs inc Race Club, Team Extreme and TBR we were expecting hordes on the hill, but it seemed most parents were quite content with sending the kids out but relaxing at the lodge. Of course all the die-hards went skiing.
We took some Instagram Videos with the #aussieskier Hashtag over the weekend – during the week we will be announcing some cool prize packs for the videos you submit during school holidays. Thanks for everyone who contributed over the weekend!!!!

Fun to be out in the Fresh air but with the calendar ticking over to July tomorrow it’s time to get it’s act together.
