7 News meteorologist Jane Bunn was at Mt Buller today and had the honour of being the first to ski the run that carries her name. The Bunn Run connects Wombat Run to the popular Wombat lift and was named after Jane this winter to mark her connection to Mt Buller as it’s official weather forecaster.
Jane presented the weather at Mt Buller last night predicting around 10cms of fresh snow overnight – and she nailed the forecast with snowflakes falling on cue from 10pm through the evening and well into the morning.
Jane was joined by Mt Buller legend and Olympic aerial ski champion Jacqui Cooper for a ski on the Bunn Run this morning, the two sharing plenty of laughs on the chairlift and the slopes and even throwing a few cheeky snowballs at the Bunn Run sign to christen it.
“I was thrilled to ski down the Bunn Run for the first time this morning, especially with an Olympian beside me showing the way” said an effusive Jane Bunn. “It’s quite amazing to have a ski run named after me. I never thought anything like this would ever happen.”
The fresh snowfall allowed the run to open for the first time today and Jane and Jacqui were thrilled to be the first to test it out with a few neat turns. Jane is a keen skier and this visit was perfect timing allowing her to get out on the snow before rushing back to Melbourne later today to deliver her weather forecast from the studio.
Just three hours' drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is close enough for a day’s escape yet far enough away for a holiday. Mt Buller has everything you need for the perfect winter snow experience.

Alpine areas, which are those above the natural treelineand are covered by snow for roughly four months of the year, account for 0.15% of Australia’s total land mass. Alpine environments are therefore geographically rare and should be treated as special and unique places. Read about our environmental policies below.
