Buller Ski Lifts is to hold an auction for 61 chairs from the Blue Bullet chairlift at Mt Buller, Australia, ahead of the lift’s retirement at the end of the 2018 snow season.

The live auction will be held at the resort on 22 September, starting at 12 noon, with all funds raised going towards the purchase of equipment for the Mansfield Hospital.

Buller Ski Lifts General Manager, Laurie Blampied, said: “There is strong interest from our community in the retirement of the Blue Bullet chairlift and this auction is an opportunity for people to secure a special piece of Mt Buller history while supporting a local institution we all depend on.”

All 61 chairs will be auctioned on the day. Chairs will be available to successful bidders after the close of the snow season.

Blue Bullet was the first Doppelmayr detachable quad chair built when it opened in 1984 and will have carried approximately 17 million passengers in its 34 year lifespan at the end of the snow season on 7 October. It will be replaced by a new 6-seater chairlift that will open for the 2019 winter.

Information on the auction and how to register to bid can be found here.
