    With the peak season gone , it makes no sense to stay open . Just close up and stop burning through money especially your labour costs.

    We heard something similar on Wednesday, and only a few permanents left if they wanted to open a couple of lifts . Without tourism there is no functioning ski resort.

    You also have 6 million people banged up in Sydney , many of these are looking to get out of Sydney at the first opportunity , Nice regional towns right across NSW, especially along the coast are all seeing good property increases and strong demand for properties. I wonder how many of those...

    What do you reckon will happen with the NSW season?

    That doesn't make sense , then why are they bringing in harsher and harsher rules , when they should have had them right from the start, like all the other states were doing Regional NSW is just paying the price for a bunch of complete idiots running the show in Sydney that deemed it to harsh...

    What do you reckon will happen with the NSW season?

    Regional NSW is just paying the price for the government in Sydney that completely refused to do a hard lockdown of Sydney right from the start, and keep it contained there. Now that they have learnt what every other state already knew, they are probably just playing it safe . Big city mentality...

    What do you reckon will happen with the NSW season?

    What an absolutely glorious job the authorities have done in Sydney, not only did they steadfastly refuse to put in real control measures that would have contained it to Sydney ,with numerous request for a "ring of steel" . They also sat around for a few weeks to see what worked and what wasn't...

    A lot of people were saying exactly the same quite a few weeks ago up in Sydney, especially from the eastern suburbs , its gone from our area , and many seamed to have the expectation that they could just get their freedom back and just lockdown harder parts of the western suburbs . Doesn't...

    And small businesses have spent the last 7 weeks slowly being financially strangled at what should have been their best 12 weeks of the year. Most accomadation places have spend the last 7 weeks handing back everyone's money . I'm surprised those running the show up in Sydney still have a job...

    What do you reckon will happen with the NSW season?

    In actual dollars spent its probably even worse, Canberra to the mountains is a pretty easy day trip, no need for on mountain accommodation or down in Jindabyne.

    We should've locked down last year when the season was short & the cover Threadbareish instead of this year when it's a top-up of snow week after week

    [Mod edit: No politics. No covid. There are other parts of the forum more appropriate.]

    The Jindabyne thread..

    This is where lots of people get confused, we make only slightly less for a weekend booking during the ski season that we make for a weekly booking for the rest of the year , apart from Christmas and around Easter. Weekend bookings out of season barely cover costs of cleaners ,linen change and...

    The Jindabyne thread..

    Cracks me up when some politicians continually go on about getting international tourism up and going to keep city based businesses afloat. Maybe look after your own domestic tourism market first and foremost and just maybe try and get that right first . For many regional tourist destinations...

    The Jindabyne thread..

    You get into lots of these rural areas especially isolated areas like the far south coast of NSW , the Cooma-Monaro and Snowy Mountains area its full of people of that dont like being told what to do. They generally don't even live in town , the nearest neighbours might be a couple of kms away...

    The Jindabyne thread..

    If its anything like the alternate lifestylers that used to live around the far south coast of NSW in the 1990s , they probably have quite a large following in rural areas. Just all grown up now and the dreadlocks have long gone.

    Yeah that sounds about right , the banks were still doing it 11 years ago , we didn't put in a cent , legals and stamp duty just thrown in , and we used it on average 6-8 weeks our self during the 2nd half of the season. The market is just going bonkers at the moment. This is a property(or its...

    Inflated Accommodation Prices gone mad 2021 Season Jindabyne and Perisher

    Its all about supply and demand . Take an investor or a person that wants to buy a holiday home, and also wants to rent it out as short term tourist accommodation Why would you take out a huge loan and then spend the next 8-12 months building a property whilst paying for the loan when you can...

    Inflated Accommodation Prices gone mad 2021 Season Jindabyne and Perisher

    Yeah , its a bit late for that , especially if the accommodation isn't there . This isn't a new problem, its been brewing for years , they knew they had a problem years ago and absolutely nothing was done . Housing staff all the way in Berridale wasn't a solution, it was just kicking the can...
