IS THERE A SHUFFLE BUS TIMETABLE?

 No, The Shuffle Busses run in snow, ice and very adverse alpine conditions. To that end, the times are very weather and road conditions dependant. On a good clear run it takes about 20min per trip. 

WHERE IS THE SHUFFLE BUS STOP?

Grid reference  41 30’23”S  147 37’33”E on Google Earth

 11km up from the bitumen turnoff of the C401 main road, there are signs at the bottom at the intersection.

There is free car parking on the right hand side of the road. The Shuffle Bus then collects you from this point and takes you the further remaining 8 kilometres to the top.

All the Snow Sports Shuffle Busses are white Landcruiser Troop Carriers and all look the same.
