Madski: Thanks for letting us know about Bonza. What about South Side? Surely it has enough cover.
Let's see what this next cold front brings. In the meantime twilight skiing kicks off Sat and Lydia's is looking good for Fri or Sat...

Dave Clark: You would have thought so, wouldn't you? More lifts coming... something rhyming with 'Schmonza' tomorrow...

Thanks DC - I know it was an obvious statement, just trying to elicit a response. Love it if the South Village access opened up....

Madski: ?: Currently a passing snow shower... Suggestion to BSL - crowds from this coming Sat will be insane (one of the busiest weeks of the year). They should try to open the Canyons, Chamois Chair to provide ski access to South Village. Standard and South Side should open to relieve the pressure on LBS. Also open the Fed Chair and Whiskey trail to relieve Wombat Chair carpark. . You would have thought Dave Clark might have provided comment on this?

Currently a passing snow shower... Snowshoed down Standard on Saturday - really good cover. Absolutely skiable - one guy skinning it. Trails to Chamois, Bull Run Chair and also the Whiskey Trail from LBS to Fed Chair all in great shape. Suggestion to BSL - crowds from this coming Sat will be insane (one of the busiest weeks of the year). They should try to open the Canyons, Chamois Chair to provide ski access to South Village. Standard and South Side should open to relieve the pressure on LBS. Also open the Fed Chair and Whiskey trail to relieve Wombat Chair carpark. (Forecast for Thu / Fri will give another 10cm+ which would support the above opening.) Last year during 2nd week of school hols - LBS and Wombat were so packed, it was positively dangerous (particularly when race club took over one of them).

Had a great couple of days up there. Arrived 5.00pm Saturday - snow everywhere and COLD. Sunday was a bit of fun - skied Shakey, Skyline, Boomerang and Chute (patchy lower) and Howqua - ok. Summit opened late (about 2.30?) and was OK. As djam said both sides of the lift were being skied but skiers right was very crusty. Today was even better. LBS was open and skiers right was the best option for a couple of early runs until the programs invaded. Summit was partially groomed and good next to the fence and into Howqua was better snow quality than yesterday IMO. Other runs were less busy with more areas open and TBH it's an awesome start all over. I've even seen FB pics of some guys in the Chutes (highly skilled and picking their way of course) Was bloody freezing today - like CO cold !! Looking at Grimus I wouldn't be surprised if they could get mid station running soon. Good source says Chamois might be running Thursday so we may actually have a bumps course for a whole season at Buller this year. Back in Melb for a few days and then heading back up Friday. Might stay through for the second week of school hols if the snow continues. Need a mental break after the past few months. So far the set up is looking good for a great season..........(*so far, ok? ;) )

Kenziepettit: Heading up thursday, whats the chance of further lifts being opened? Im thinking bonza, grimus etc

Lots of fun to be had up here, great cover really on most the open stuff, even most the skiers right of summit was well covered, when it open this afternoon. And only a few days back it could be said there was no snow here at all. Mostly just a short wait to get on the lifts, even though nearly every, T/Seat was full. Fingers crossed we get to build on the current good base.
