    News Falls Creek Hotham Alpine Crossing. The master plan. What a heap of horsepoo.

    My real issue with this planned development, and other 'incursions' by the ARMBs into the National Park, is that Parks Vic, DEWLP and the Minister responsible need to be strong and vocal and direct the ARMBs to butt out and focus on their own patch. The Victorian Alpine Resorts Act excised...

    I'm amazed given the current focus by government on vaccination that there is no testing exemption for double vaxxed.

    I've got no inside word on lifts but would guess Halleys, Towers, Mousetrap and Drovers. Think they can run these with 'permanent' staff. Food and Bev will be interesting capped at 10 patrons inside.

    options for some new touring skis that will also cover resort skiing

    After skiing Völkl 90eights mounted with NTN for a few years and loving them, this season I've added a pair of Blaze 94 with Marker F12 to my arsenal. Got just over a week on them in resort and side country and just love them. Can't wait to get more time on snow on these awesome skis.

    As a XC skier you will have zero bearing on any decision that Vail makes. You are not a customer of theirs.

    The only requirement in the ski field is signage stating 'face covering' in lift queues..... not being actively enforced. Inside areas as per current Victorian DHHS directives.

    Ski Victoria

    Looks like living in Mt Beauty I'm going to have to have a COVID test every 3 days in order to ski regularly. Victorian government have jumped the shark.

    16/17 telemark boots

    .... and while they continue to need to make both 75mm and NTN boots that small segment is segmented into two even smaller segments.

    Another 4WD vs AWD article from USA

    Why do you keep harping on about this 4WD/AWD stuff? Your beloved Alpine Resorts Regulations that you've posted on here and have had considerable input and influence in regarding chains has this definition, "Division 2—Wheel chains in alpine resorts 23 Definitions in this Division In...

    Snow Report Hotham 2021 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    It's a nothing story..... two cars most likely slid into a bank and needed assistance getting back on the road, at the same time during the same weather event hundreds of cars over the state will have slid off wet roads with far greater consequence and no headlines. The whole issue of our alpine...

    I was dropping my knee today for the first time since finishing chemo 3 weeks ago. Been sticking to the training heels since opening weekend but it felt so good to free the heel. Are you back skiing the lifts tomorrow?

    The carparks were full to the brim and it was great to see the 4Site parking crew working to fill every available space. Given how busy the resort was and it being a Saturday I didn't think the crowds in the ski area were too bad. Queues were up and down, I took this pic of the Tower's queue at...

    I should say that I get to ski all season so don't get stressed about making the most of a once a year holiday visit. Having said that I do get frustrated if I'm unnecessarily waiting in a longer queue because people aren't forming 4s.

    Lift queues are now exactly what I'd expect at Falls for peak visitor period. Halleys busy leading up to 10am from about 930. Towers busy from 1030 till noon. Drovers IMO is always busy and I rarely ski it. Key as always is to look at other queues on backside while riding the lifts and be...

    Skiing continues to be surprisingly good. After such a warm start and persistent inversions, temperatures have dropped and snowmaking has really kicked in and yesterday's man-made was nice and dry. Skiing off the groomers on Scott's and Castle was really nice if you picked the right areas where...

    Queue was long on Towers for the 10-12 period during the traditionally busiest week of the season with limited terrain open, all as expected. After 12 the queue at Towers was short and when we went to Scott's at 1230 it was nearly ski on.
