blueandwhite: Half decent night of snow making last night. Summit, top of Standard, Bourke St and I imagine Skyline. Random skid marks appearing on shaky and chamois too which I found a little surprising.
Yeah a few more good nights and there might be enough for Skyline/Baldy

Why would the RMB need to do a tyre check if you have have already had that done in Melbourne (Roof Carrier Systems, etc) or, in the case of this year, you simply upload pictures of your vehcile and the tyres - shots specified, prior to getting your getting your pass issued?

CarveMan: How about the enforcement agency that is run by the Vic Government - should they be enforcing Vic Government regulations? Oh that's right, they've refused to.
Exactly.

wolly: RMB being a government body should be absolutely enforcing this. What a joke !!!

Shredderman: I went up on Saturday, no queues at mirimbah, I asked for my car park season pass, they got that for me and said just put it on here as no one behind you, I asked "do you need to check tyres I do have snow tyres" they said I believe you, you're right to go. "I said what about Covid test?", they said "oh are you from Melbourne?". They seemed pretty relaxed about the whole thing. Nice to get away from the angst in Melbourne :).

Pretty strict on lift line masks on Sunday. Noticed an authorised officer taking pictures of the line on Saturday so im thinking they got a slap on the wrist. +10 points to Tirol opening without the lifts, spent most of the weekend up there.

Timmossy: My neighbours went up and weren’t asked to produce evidence. We’re just asked “Where you from?” And “Have you had a test?”

Not much more to report about today. It was busier than yesterday for sure, with the lift queue moving much more slowly. Nice day up there with the sun shining. They were trying harder to enforce mask wearing in the lift line since it was busier. First by the lifties/guest services and in the end ski patrol was at the entry to the queue telling everyone off, ski instructors included! Great to be back up there and looking forward to there being more snow!!

Whilst we are desperate to see the snow making fire up again you have to question if it is worth it if it's all going to just wash away in a few days time. Defeatist I know, but you have to look at it from the resorts' perspective.

no, not sure, humidity was still quite high when temps low, and visa versa. I think they only had a small window. Short periods not so easy for the manual guns (worse if you can't access by snow mobile etc) should not be an issue for the full auto guns.

djam: yeah, I need to run some numbers, but expect with two more on Bourke street, starting 25 days out instead of 50 days out, the losses (which I believe to be substantial) would be reduce by more then half. And we should be then able to move a machine early to the snow play areas, to keep them off the ski runs. It costs a lot to have the resort open this time of the year, when you have such small visitor numbers. Many buses runing with only a few passengers etc.
Do you have any idea of how the snow making is operated? I thought they would have cranked up the snow making on shaky knees, LBS and standard last night since it was certainly cold enough, was also a very unusual morning with very low humidity which is also good for snow making. Maybe from 7:30pm to 2am? But none of those runs had any snow making running. If it was manual and someone had to turn it off at 2am, then it makes sense they can't run it. But hopefully there is some level of automation to run it?
