Fresh cover on a firm base

Withandnbsp;an overnight low of -3.7 degrees the conditions were just right for our snow-making team to pump those snow guns. Today we're headed for a partly cloudy top of 0 degrees with light to moderate winds. There is also a chance we'll see a snow shower or two later thisandnbsp;afternoon.andnbsp;

Looking at the rest of the week we're going to see that cloud cover sticking around with snow showers on the forecast from Thursday and into the weekend.

The way things have gone the past few years with Buller's lifts, they're probably celebrating tonight!

Surely Men's Downhill and Southside chair must be close?

Quoting Bullerdonk: Did you ride Bullrun Leigh? If so did you check out the Bowl..... Skiable to first cat track or still not enough down there? Thanks in advance
Yes, I rode Bullrun chairlift. The only run to get there was Standard, all other blacks like Sun Valley, Wood run, etc looked like they need a fair bit of snow before they would be open.

I was up at Buller yesterday (Tue 28/7). Snow was good in those areas which are open, basically where there is snow making coverage. Anything without snow making (ie virtually all the black runs) need a fair bit more snow before they would open. Was cloudy most of the day with limited visibility at times, but was okay mostly. Started snowing later in the afternoon. Lift lines non-existent all day, even on Burke st which was reasonably busy.

Quoting Vermillion: Chamois and the canyons usually need a little more snow than Standard to open.
Hopefully Thurs/Fri will drop enough to do the trick!!!!

You'd think they could get it open to the middle for the weekend at least.

Quoting sbt99: Bull Run opening today according to buller report. I'd asume this is just standard, anything else would be very sketchy. Surely chamois and and the canyons for the weekend?

I called APIRA and they have some issue with net access right now, Not sure when it'll be fixed.

Quoting Farkle Minkus: pics of today please!
Snowcams indicate why photos from the past few days are a scarce commodity. An slight touch of fog. On that note, Apira seems to be throwing another tanny, ? At least it froze on a snowshot.

Quoting CarveMan: 20cm would get Standard open, I would have thought it would take about 40-50cm more to get the rest of the bowl skiable.
Ah ok, let's hope Mountainwatch is correct in his prediction of 28cm at Buller within the next 7 days!!
