Fishwrecked in the snow!?!

Had an awesome time in the Snow last week at Mt Buller with the familiy.  Great skiing and no injuries apart from a few bruises (so no gory photos like KC’s).  Our 4 yo had a cracker of a time (as would be expected).


Met a fellow member on the mountain -   He was abit cold and didn’t say a lot though.



Snowed in;




Snow storm;



All good;



Up and away;


Can’t wait for the next trip to the snow.  Back to the fishin’ for now.


Cheers Pete

There's snow man like a fishwrecked man LOL

Look like that mouth could give some stick!

If you use a carrot for the nose, does that mean he can smell in the dark?

Glad he was wearing sunny's those humans can be pretty glary. :)

Haha, you guys crack ya selves upLaughing



Only our 2nd time in the snow and 2nd time at Buller.  Everything you need to know should be here;

The snow report is updated every day.  Best time - go now!!  One of the best snow years for years.  Avoid the Victorian school holidays though.

Buller is great for the family.  4hrs via bus from Melb ($105 return for adult, $64 kids)...delivered to ya hotel door.  Snow school for the kids...and adults.  Night skiing on Wednesdays (great fun.).

We stayed at the Arlberg this time, and would so again. We hired all the gear from them too.

Best value  - Fly to Melb, shuttle bus to Melb for o/nighter (we stayed the Travel lodge in Southbank Sat night),  Taxi to Southern Cross Station for Sunday bus up to Buller.  So 4.5 days of actual skiing (5 if you take the 4.30pm bus).

Ask, if ya need more details Mark. 

Cheers Pete
