    That said the car park at Guthega definitely not full this afternoon. Parachute has a pretty good cover too.

    Not to mention how early the car park fills these days. I never saw it full at 9am in the 90’s.

    Summit & Terminal at 11:20 this morning. V8 was out of action for about 30min this morning but Crowds not too bad so far. Did a number of laps of the Quad and Liechardt this morning, probably less than a minute wait most times.

    Yep that’s it, no additional entrance fee as such and if you have a yearly pass no need to pay for the parking

    My last 10 rides of the V8 last night took me 45 minutes, a 4.5 minute lap average. Queue was not ski straight on but close too it. As Nightskywatcher said there was a lot of snowboarders who seemed to have a lot of trouble with the dismount, so the lift did go into slow mode or stop often...

    Ha, I do travel at speed sometimes, I was going by the time on the lift gates. I wanted to work out what was taking longer being that Pretty Valley double is so sloooow.

    I did a number of laps of Pretty Valley, even though the lift ride is longer I was lapping it in about 11-12 minutes, had to go via Mid Station to stay on the groomed runs. In comparison Quad (to mid) laps were taking about 12-14 minutes, due to the lift line. Decent day In the end.

    That would not be great either, hopefully they get it fixed by then.

    Not great for them, but we don’t need any more up here anyway.

    Indeed, wasn’t too bad until about 9:30am. I’m now back at the car taking a break from the lift lines.

    Snowing proper in the car park now, actually starting to settle to cars instead of instantly turning to water as it was 15 minutes ago. Plenty of cars turning up, car park will fill early I suspect.

    None of the above. Was taking a break from the mist/fog/drizzle, but also doing a bit of work too.

    That was my thinking, he had covered a lot of ground and was still looking just before quad closing time.
