With a chilly overnight low of -5.5 degrees it was definitely a good idea to stay rugged up in front of the fire. Today we're headed for a cloudy -2 degrees with snow showers and a chance of some afternoon hail. There's also moderate to strong winds on the forecast which will be easing towards the afternoon.andnbsp;

Looking ahead, those clouds will be hanging around for a few more days with snow on the forecast for tomorrow and Friday.andnbsp;

We hope to have Blue Bullet, ABOM, Northside Express, Howqua, Bull Run, Summit, Southside, Wombat and Grimus turning. Keep checking mtbuller.com.au and our Facebook page for updates. Once power is regained we anticipate opening the remaining 11 lifts.andnbsp;andnbsp;If youandrsquo;re up here skiing or boarding today youandrsquo;re going to find some fresh conditions around the resort thanks to the 7cm of newandnbsp;snow. And don't forget to check out Ski Patrol's pick of the day: Boomerang.andnbsp;

two big generators are being installed at the plough shed and will supply power to the hill. the fault is underground below the plough shed, they will dig up the road tomorrow to find the fault and repair it. the road will be down to one lane while this happens

Well I doubt you'll see the snow in better condition than it would be tonight, and with more to come tonight and tomorrow it will be a perfect day for a ski. Nice and dry and no refreeze will mean whatever falls on top will continue to be dry. You dont get prolonged conditions like this in AUS often.

Quoting PiedPiper: Is this due to the power issues they are having? Anyone know if the power stuff is fixed or will be by tomorrow? I am planning on heading up for the day, but will go the (several) extra miles to Hotham, if Buller is still suffering power issues.
Yep. See below. Stakeholder Notification Service - Road Disruption Notification 04 August 2015 As you may be aware, Ausnet Services has been experiencing problems with power supply at Mt Buller since early this morning, which has interrupted services across the mountain. As part of the rectification of the Ausnet Services issue, a truck bearing large equipment is expected to access the resort between 5.30pm - 6.30pm this evening, Tuesday 04 August. During this period, the Mt Buller Rd between the Village and Mirimbah will be closed to outbound traffic (vehicles leaving the resort). The road will remain open to inbound traffic (those entering the resort) however access will be slow. As such, visitors are encouraged to amend their arrival and departure plans to avoid travelling on the Mt Buller Road at this time. The Free Car Park Shuttle will operate as per scheduled until 6pm, unless the road closure prevents this. If the shuttle is prevented from running prior to 6pm, guests should remain at the Mansfield-Mt Buller Bus Lines office in the Village Square, until the road re-opens, when a shuttle will run to the car park.

Quoting cookieman: For a non Buller person, this mountain threw everything at us on the weekend from rain, fog,wind and traffic jams but we seem to keep coming back . The jnats moguls event that we came for was run on Bourke st, at a shortened course and with postponements and many delays. However ,considering all the challenges Buller still seems to run events pretty well and we got a result at the end. I still have a soft spot for this mountain especially when there is a full cover. By the way, my little 9 year old, in her first multi club moguls event got a top 5 placing in the under 14s. Lets hope this weeks system brings plenty of snow as I have at least 2 more event trips this season.
nice job jnr cookie - was a tough event for all the kids esp training on Sat in the pouring rain. Lets make sure we catch up for that beer / coffee next time you're up.

Quoting miss_b_haven: Sadly, no, I'm not. The hill desperately needs more tarts, it seems.
