TRADITIONALLY known as the ‘opening weekend’ Mt Buller skiers have already been on the slopes for a whole week enjoying the good half-metre snow cover on the resort’s main run.

“This long weekend is a true celebration of the early start to the ski season and the snowmaking investment Mt Buller has made this year,” said Laurie Blampied, general manager Buller Ski Lifts.

“It’s been terrific to have guests skiing and boarding on Bourke Street since last Friday night on a good cover and we are looking forward to getting into more terrain as soon as we can.

“We’ll enjoy a special night of twilight skiing this Saturday night complete with fireworks and our new lighting on Bourke Street – it’s a great way to spend the long weekend.”

The weekend schedule was packed with activities and live entertainment in the Village Square kicking off Saturday afternoon.
