Quoting weerab: I skied Buller on Friday after a very long absence. It's very impressive, great infrastructure and good choice of runs. I was even more impressed when the lady at the entry gate said " I don't mean to be rude but are you over 65?" The answer was yes so I got in for free. I then made the mistake of not hiring skis as I only had a couple of hours so I skied on my ancient 180cm Fischer AT skis complete with old Dynafit AT boots. I had trouble turning the skis as there is not much sidecut and the boots don't offer a lot of control so I was stuck on Baldy trying to hone my skills while avoiding boarders who would pull up in front of you, almost stop then take off again. I think the boarders were also responsible for all the mogul like heaps of snow on the steeper parts of the run. My other snowboard incident occurred trying to get off the Baldy lift but being blocked by this board hanging off a guys leg in front of me. The liftie wasn't looking and thought I had just stuffed up and the boarder was so self engrossed he didn't notice anything untoward. I had to step to the inside, let the chair go past then ski out before the next one! Anyway, weather was great so I came away with a very good impression of Buller, although I didn't find staff or visitors quite as friendly as Falls.
Baldy/Bourke St is mainly full of beginners and can be quite a zoo, particularly on the tail of interschool crowds. Beginner boarders tend to scrape the snow down into moguls which makes it even more difficult for beginners, both boarders or skiers. Lifties sure need to be on the ball, especially on beginner lifts. A couple of weeks ago after lunch in the village, we had a close call riding Holden back to Southside. Some bloke sat there cluelessly enjoying the footrest even when it was time to lift the bar. We said ! By that stage, even the liftie was yelling at this dude before grabbing his feet and shoving them off the bar so we could raise it to get off. We were already at the turn wheel by then and had to jump off the chair. Fortunately we were fine and skied off, but unsurprisingly, this dude ended up sprawled on the snow and the liftie had to clear him out of the way of the next chair. Could have been quite a domino effect.

Quoting luvthabumps: Summit is great from a spectator POV and it's a longer course with a good steep section after the top air. They did do it skiers left of Summit fence a few years back and it wasn't a very tough course but skiers right of the chair is a good course IMHO. and if you were perhaps thinking that someone corked out a 720 and might have got a bit too far around the axis then you would be right ;) We had a bit of a free bumps expression session in the sun of Wood Run with all the TBR kids and some of the old timers (read parents inc mrs LTB ) on Sat arvo. There's a bunch of photos on FB if you or your boy are friends with any of the TBR kids or coaches. Lots of old school gear - some of the kids were busting out big iron X 360's and Cosacks on 220cm straight skis - very impressive and a hoot of an afternoon.
Ok so I will enjoy the view. I have only been to Buller once so the local info is appreciated. ah yes just a bit to far of axis then. There was close to a similar incident up here recently. Sounds like they were unlucky but rules are rules. Will have to look for those pics on FB. Always good when people are just having fun. Came across a vid of Mohawk Kobayashi recently :thumbs: Sounds like it may have been similar.

Quoting skichanger: Thanks for the update. Will pass it on. Sigh, I can already hear the winging from some (not us) about the change in location. Apparently there was a bit of a hissy fit when Woodrun was mentioned. They should just appreciate having enough snow. Anyway looking forward to watching dual moguls. NSW Junior event is the first time I have watched them live and it is pretty exciting, especially when the crowd get involved and madly cheer etc. I am in Japan atm and fly back to Melb in time to go up to Buller for this. Will be a bit of a climate shock as it is warm and humid here. And what happened at interschools? Did someone do what I think would give them a full DSQ?

ABOM on Summit now. Started pushing up snow for tables on the weekend. Fingers crossed for good weather - should be exciting.

I arrived at 7.45 yesterday and started at Shaky Knee after the life opened. First few runs were very good - newly groomed condition. The crowd started to arrive and the run became bumpy. We moved to standard. It was still alright all the way down to the bottom except the joint with Cannon Trail which was muddy. After that I went to Summit area. Summit Slide was good enough. Lift queue at Howqua was hugh. Lift stopped temporarily and the queue was unbelievable that some people decided to hike up to Kofler. I spent the rest of my time yesterday at Wombat until the end of the day.

Jarryd and I are back from our day trip. Must admit that both of us were a bit shocked at how much snow has disappeared. I skied Summit Slide (goes to the North side of the hill?) and it wasn't much chop. That was about 1:30. Lots of rocks and foliage poking through. Shakey Knees had lots of foliage poking through also. Went over to the south side and skied a couple of runs over there. Thought that was much better, but Jarryd not up to those runs and LBS was still closed due to interschools. As it was sunny, probably ventured over there too early with Jarryd and he wasn't used to the conditions, so he went back to Abom and just cruised up and down there. I caught up with him again and we just skied there until my knees said I had done enough. Al the drivers leaving the mountain were pretty good. Couple of tailgaters going down from the carpark, but you get them everywhere.
