Good to see these on again this morning

can torture self hoping for an early opening, or just be surprised if it happens.

rocketboy: Friday June 8th now looks to be the best outcome given the weather at this stage. Snowmaking is looking painful until later next week after 2-3 days of warm and rain ahead of a possible cold snow event. Then hopefully the machines can roar into the night. That should then make for a clear run to an all day Friday opening ahead of the LWE - they have done this a couple of times in recent years ie 2015. Otherwise it'll be the cattle yard at 8.30 on June 9.
Well I'll see you there, one way or the other:)

kiter: Have the snowguns at blue cow fired up tonight ?
doesn't look like they ran last night on Zali in this final pix from today. they started about midnight last night at FV. Compare this snap in the morning. Hopefully they turn this cam back on for 24/7 soon. You could see if Zali guns etc were working at night last year. And the glow from the Ridge guns was often visible as well.

Jacko4650: Looking at the Perisher Cams, I reckon there's more than enough cover on front valley now that Normo could be doing laps off the magic carpet on his new phats to get the jump on season V's.
Thanks to snowmaking and snow farming. There's bugger all elsewhere, and nothing likely over the next fortnight by the look of the Weather subforum. That leaves a week before opening. At least that big static blocking high should provide good snowmaking conditions, and little prospect of it being washed away.

I wonder why Perisher doesn't send out receipts for epic pass purchases? So I asked for mine via email . Arrived five minutes later.

nfip: and on Zalis I'm pretty sure they just run a couple of fire hoses at the top of the rollover and let it freeze on the ground into a glacier like solid mass. ;)
BC Opening Day - June 12, 2015. They ran Summit, Early and Terminal. 20 punters at best. LynB was on gate duty - and previous 2 weeks was snowmaking at -10C many nights. IMO - That was a Season 2015 Top 10 Day.

Ben: This doesn't happen. You will find with east facing slopes the constant melt and freeze will cause this along with high traffic wear and tear.
