mick chopps: when does the biking season close? mate of mine has a shuttle pass, think it's just about done as of the easter weekend.
last weekend of shuttles is 21/22 April IIRC the tracks won't actually be closed till it gets soggy, or white

Edgecrusher: A few shots of the progress of the new Eagle chair. I overheard the lodge manager at AAC, who's been working on the chair, say that Poma have some staff out here overseeing things and they expect to have it completed before opening weekend
Old tower on home trail
not that it'll be required...

Sadie: What you doing up there? We are in Bright over the break and will probably take the bikes up for a bash on one of the days.
Just getting away for the long weekend to do some hiking, might do a few trail runs whilst I'm up there. I'll take a fly rod up as well and have a bit of a flick around in the little creeks too.

Edgecrusher: I'm glad it fell today and not next weekend. I'll be up there from Good Friday until Monday morning. Looks cool but clear.

I'd hope that they'd extend the poor arrivals experience beyond just the oversnow. I think there is plenty of opportunities to improve the whole arrival experience, and I'd start the clock from the gate entry and it keep it ticking through to when people get to their lodge! (Some are simply baffling - why do I need a printed parking/access form in the window? If Baw Baw can get by without it, surely Falls can!)

emkae: March 2018 stakeholders report Some interesting info e.g. the idea of transforming the current “underwhelming arrivals experience” around the oversnow...
It has a dot point for food & bev outlets. What was said? I've heard a rumour about who got the lift co outsource but not sure if it's correct

Option A: walk up from overnight parking and up 4 sets of steps in the snow carrying own luggage - backpack and 2 bags with kid carrying own backpack in tow. Price - $0, time 25 minutes. Option B: book and pay for oversnow, wait 40 minutes, travel via 4 other lodges - Price @$40+, time 30 minutes. I choose option A.... Not feasible for a more than 3 day stay, and not sn option for most, but it’s a sad reflection on an overpriced and underserviced aspect of Falls Creek. I also remember walking down to Bay 10 because the guys at the transfer were understaffed - and religiously following their predetermined schedule. I also remember the taxi buses last season only 40 metres away driving away down the hill when there was a group of people ready to go uphill, because “that’s what the circuit is”, and then the bloke refusing to stop and pick me up passing me on the up because I wasn’t at the designated stop, and getting pretty agressive when I queried them on this at Windy Corner - fair enough, I don’t blame the drivers who have set parameters, but the system still sucks. Currently it’s the back country access, not the resort and the lifts which will see me front up to Falls as opposed to Hotham this year, but maybe it’s time to rethink the Falls season pass...

Amen to that. They do better welcoming staff.

Lots of action in the car park today - big mother of a chopper and plenty of folk on high vis gear - looks like they are ready to plant the towers.

Be good to take some pressure off Falls Express at the start of the day.
