Ok thanks Jelly, I would like to practice some more blues so may not be able to get that chance and all my mates are advanced so they would get bored pretty quickly I reckon.

Medicine_Shoes: Don't particularly want to start a new thread just for a small question, but how busy is Buller normally for opening weekend? Is it as packed as a normal early August Saturday? And how much of the mountain do we think will be open?
I just said there was a good chance for Wombat for QBW. But that depends on lots of things going our way. We definitely have Bourke Street guaranteed for QBW though. Youíd hope they could get Baldy/Skyline together too, hopefully more. If there isnít much open, itís going to be busy on the (open) slopes. If there is a fair bit open, itís probably going to be less crowded than a typical August weekend, but it will still be fairly busy. Worthy of note, Much of the hill is just up there for the party.

Jesus on a bike... Jane Bunn reckons Mt. Stirling will get up to half a metre of snow over the coming 10 days!. This Wed. is looking like enough will fall to set up a base for basic grooming on the XC ski trails on the upper mountain.

the news tip is based on: how much we have so far how much it looks like we will get between now and Friday/Saturday How much can be made in the same period how long it takes to switch the machine (resort) on and history. If we have a good ski-able base and it is looking that way, I'd say it's a sure bet, even if just Sat-Sun. PS people will arrive even if the resort is not running lifts.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Buller/ Stirling resort/s can't open early just yet!. I have yet to do my supply drop at Hut Mt. Refuge thingy Hut No. 3 and cut up a ship load of wood for the hut!
Think you mighta missed your chance there pal. Just FYI in future don't plan on being able to do anything in the mountains in May. It's why when we renovated our place last year we put an Easter deadline to finish it. Having a baby was also part of that!

I think there is a good chance Wombat will be open for QBW. If all things go to plan.

Bogong: It will be Buller because they are close enough to Melbourne to attract SDS affected day trippers. That will get footage of lots of skiers on Bourke Street on the telly, which is free prime time advertising on all networks. Other resorts would only get a few locals. I reckon early opening appeals more to ski resort marketing departments who are keen to boost bookings for the coming winter than it does to their accounting departments. So because of the spin doctors, Buller will open first, even if other resorts have more snow.

Buller has half a chance of selling enough tickets to cover the cost as well, it would probably cost Falls/Hotham money despite the PR free kick.

wolly: I think its just a matter of which resort will announce first they are opening early.

Yeah I'm not getting a lot of love from the way Buller are talking about an early season opening to be honest! And fair enough given everything that's going on around the village square area and the new lift. They'll be cursing if they can't open early though I'd imagine. Think of the lost dollars...

Mister Tee on XC Skis: You could ski that , I would !!!! :)
An updated pic from the Bluff Spur Hut cam shows that at least two people ARE skiing it
EDIT: Changed pic so it's frozen in time rather than the live cam image
