Mt Buller - Australia
Beautiful sunshine has prevailed today, there was fresh snow made overnight, and groomers have been busy making that perfect corduroy that we all love to carve up.
The terrain parks look amazing right now! If you haven’t seen what we’ve done with the Summit Terrain Park – head up here and catch some awesome tricks right before your eyes.
This weekend will be another corker, I’m sorry to tell you. On Saturday blue skies are expected, there’s a moguls & jumps competition on the summit, followed by an after party at the ABOM.
You can find an excellent cover of firm-packed snow around the resort, with over 126cm of natural snow and over 170cm in snow making areas. With excellent visibility today is a great day to get out there and explore the resort.
