OK time to lock & unstick this baby. Thanks for a great 2014 and roll on 2015. See you in the banter thread!

I didn't skii or snowboard much during August and September because we had so much to do about the new business venture I mentioned some months back -- after months of frustrations, we've finally started it :D Totally I had 23 or 24 days on the hill with some exceptionally great new skiing experiences. My skiing is still as bad as ever, but I've had a great season.

Disappointing we don't have skiflat's graphs any more, they were really good. I think I have the last one he did which covered about 10 years. Had some great days up there this year!

I've gotta say, not that I would ever wish the snow away, but it's quite novel to be at work on a Monday morning and not be exhausted!!! A great season was enjoyed by all - we had some fantastic conditions and the mountain over-delivered on my personal requirement of 8 weekends with solid off-piste skiing available. I went through my scans on the Buller Holidays app - 26 days, and I rode Bull Run Chair over 60 times. That's a win. The weather really co-operated on the weekends too - by Australian standards it was pretty bloody good and there were no weekend days that were write-offs due to wind hold etc. All in all it was a fantastic winter. I'll lock this thread later today - we can then retire to the banter thread or someone can start a Summer Development thread if there's anything worth talking about. The lift company has a reliable track record of re-investment following profitable winters so hopefully this year is no exception. I'm really looking forward to seeing some snowmaking expansion in the near future.

Quoting djam: well that's it, 2014 winter done and dusted. Plenty of lifts running today, blue skies and windy from around midday on. Unfortunately the snow was soft, even first thing :( but I still had a few hours of fun. Followed by my first MTB ride post Winter, a quick lap down Gang Gangs and back up the road, as the Split Rock return had too much snow still on it. (south facing). I need to take a rake out to Gang Gangs yet. All in all, a good year, some awesome skiing on the back of the two earlier great falls. We all come here for fun, and most the time Buller delivers. One family earlier this year came here for some snow fun, only to have it end in tragedy, when their young son died playing just outside their accommodation. I can't for one minute understand how that would effect me. One can only hope his family and friends can recover from losing a young child. The snow has lots of dangers that are not widely known in a country which for the most part is without snow. If you have friends at or coming to the snow, try to pass on your knowledge of things to look out for. How to drive in the snow, even clothing to wear etc. RIP, young child, you will not be forgotten
djam, only a few days after that tragedy, I caught a taxi which happened to be driven by a close friend of the family. I was told some family history, and for their own personal reasons their littlest boy was possibly treasured for even more reasons than most; he was truly a gift. The effect on the parents and siblings was significant, and one that will always impact them. I sat in the back totally heartbroken. I won't ever forget this little boy, or his family.

Quoting weerab: I "donated" 3 cases of beer to the local CFA to burn off a heap of dead blackberry canes. Unfortunately the fire just charred the damned things and I had to pull them out by hand. Anyway, it was a good cause and the guys got some extra practice.
Love eating the berries, but the shrubs are the cockroaches of the plant world, ie, would still be in perfect nick after nuking them.

Quoting CarveMan: Just a quick update on Al - after a week of good progress and successful surgeries to all his extremities, he has begun to regain consciousness. Still a long road ahead of him but this is very positive news given the prognosis from the medical professionals on the scene on Saturday. Keep the well wishes and the positive vibes coming.
Thanks for updating . I've been thinking of him each day and had been hoping for positive news. Great to hear! Sounds like he's putting as much determination and effort into his recovery as he's put into his skiing. Excellent work, Alistair!

Well said. It's been a few weeks since I was last up, but the early-mid part of the season delivered in spades. Any season that allows you to casually ride the Tirol T for weeks on end gets a massive tick from me! 2014 saw plenty of quality skiing and socialising with all of the usual suspects, and lots of new faces. Good times. Now - bring on Summer and a few MTB weekends.

Quoting CarveMan: That's the standard 'thank you' or 'mea culpa' practice with Ski Patrol ;)
Good way to say thanks for quite a few services. The Fire Dept is another :thumbs:

It also gets jobs done sooner in the metal and motor trades.
