Ubiquitous Steve: Was thinking that....but I know I the backlash that will come from some on forum ....so I am just thinking to myself that it would be a grand idea!Be nice out there with a big fire to sit in front of ...perhaps eating lunch ...watching snow falling outside.....only a dream of course....it will never happen!!
Instead of day visitors, such as me , for XC skiing , just going up for a day , they could tow a sled out to the Boundary hut and snow camp out there with the hut to hang out in. There would have to be a drop loo installed too. Since the resort makes much of its money out of parking fees then having an incentive to stay overnight in the vicinity could be seen as a money spinner. The main rub would be that the Yarra Ranges N.P. includes that area so it is a Parks Vic. matter.

Ubiquitous Steve: Perhaps they should be looking well ahead....and focussing on mt.bike and walking trails.... We thought that Boundary Hut Site might have been considered for a revamp! Perhaps wooden balcony with deck chairs and umbrellas!
What if they( PV and the LMB) rebuilt the Boundary hut to the standard of Weston's Hut?.

They have a good network of mountain bike and walking trails. And they're working on completing the LM to Marysville trail. But the summer income is tiny compared with the winter income. Walkers and cyclists come largely self-sufficient.

teckel: It would appear not. But it's my understanding that LM has had to help BB (past legacy) out as a one off, thereby distorting the figures. Hopefully, it means that from here on, figures will look a little rosier.
Of little use then........ Big slurpee machine will as you say secure LM for years to come, great news

teckel: 2017 Annual report (for BB and LM combined) http://www.southernalpine.vic.gov.au/images/2017_ar.pdf They would have done much better this year. And then they would have made a pretty packet from the Russel Crowe movie scene (another Ned Kelly movie) that was filmed there this year.
Combined Does it separate LM profit of loss result ? Is there an actual $ figure

Mister Tee on XC Skis: A giant slurpee machine. FFS!.
I understand the product is of a higher quality than the current slurpees.

Hunter: My taxes at work.......... Does the resort publish a profit and loss ? Did the season just gone produce a out of the ordinary result ? Would we ever know ?

teckel: If only ... I LOLed. The long anticipated Snow Factory. And a big one at that. Due for arrival in late March/early April. As well as a new pump station for the snow guns. The snow factory will enable guaranteed cover up to Helicopter Flat & maybe beyond. Future-proofing the resort. :thumbs:

Excellent news Teckel - Not sure if I know where HF is. Is that the first sign/track junction on the XC trails?

teckel: DELWP's responsibility. Nothing to do with the resort.
I might go back up there with a brush cutter if I cannot get a sensible answer from DEWLP.

But good fire access would be a win/win.....perhaps Teckel could influence the DSE to get an outcome pleasing Mr.T who will not be able to be Mr.T on skis without radical intervention on the jungle training course offered by said route in the direction of the old Boundary Hut Ruins!??? Mr.T will have to revert to Mr T on snow shoes to get any way up the derelict route!And nobody wants to see him given a set back after his amazing 2018 season on planks!???

Maintaining low-use walkings tracks is low on the dELWP list of priorities, unfortunately. Wishing it wasn't so - but such work will always get effort 'Trumped' by fire-related activities. Which Is generally hard to argue against given recent decades? Perhaps PV should have a much broader range of lands /trails & budget??
