We have seen a bit of a frozen layer form overnight, so work those edges.Conditions are very good across most of the open areas. Check out mtbuller.com.au for individual run status.

Buller TM Fog. Days and days of pea soup fog. That's fine if lower runs are open, you just go low and fog is no issue but when its limited to higher runs around summit its hard to tell up from down. Ill risk it for next weeks outcome.

Today was great. If youre holding out on a day trip hold out a lil longer til the next system on monday. Cover is extensive just needs a bit more to make it good. Grimus turned today, summit slide was fun but patchy down low Southside was fun riding downhills etc Hoping for federation after mext week.

I’d been hoping for more than just Wombat & LBS for both variety and room to move, and so it is. Not all, but more than enough to keep me entertained. For over a week now I’d been planning for tomorrow so I’m making it happen, come rain, snow or shine. Today’s report says “Rain Showers”? What the hell, I’ll be taking rubber gloves and a change of clothes along with ' advice to “get out and ski FFS” :D I’ll be solo, so have space in the car. I’d be happy to say hi and/or have a ski , or anyone else :)

TOFF: You should go up and report first handed. Unemployed, homeless, go skiing is my advice ;)
Good idea - do you want a skiing partner tomorrow?

I would say 100% that Grimus and SouthSide will be open tomorrow, saw them doing some work on SouthSide today, cover was solid.
