    It's May. What can I get excited about this year? What's new? What summer works have been done? Give me the good oil.

    July school holidays should be ok. Beginners runs are up top and have snowmaking. But make sure your accommodation offers a snow guarantee.

    Cheers mate. We were planning on the 24th June weekend. We've bought the 5hr group session package thingy, what would happen if there's no snow lol?

    Holiday Snow Guarantee
    If, due to lack of snow, there are less than 3 lifts (inclusive of at least 1 lift that services an intermediate trail) operating at Hotham 2 days prior to the check-in date of your snow holiday, you may choose to receive a credit or full refund on all pre-paid accommodation and lift company products. If you decide to wait less than 2 days before your check-in date to see if further lifts open, the credit or refund will be granted based on the number of lifts operational due to lack of snow on the day you request a refund. You may not cancel your holiday on the check-in date. This snow guarantee only applies if a lift cannot be opened due to a lack of snow on the major trail it services. The guarantee does not apply if lifts are on windhold – i.e. not able to be opened due to high winds, low visibility or a combination of these weather elements or undergoing temporary maintenance. List of Lifts covered by the snow guarantee (minimum of 3 to operate including one lift that services an intermediate trail). Roadrunner Quad Chair* Summit Quad Chair Heavenly Valley Quad Chair* Big D Quad Chair Village Quad Chair* Playground Double Chair* The Drift T-Bar* Gotcha Quad Chair* Keogh’s Orchard Quad Chair* Blue Ribbon Chair* Summit Trainer Poma *Denotes lifts that service intermediate terrain - See more at: http://www.mthotham.com.au/plan-my-trip/accommodation/hotham-snow-guarantee/#sthash.fr6dx9x8.dpuf

    Does anyone know what's new at DP this year, restaurants and bars etc.
    I miss Sola Copa (sp?) any new bars?
    Onsen still available?
    What about rundells bar, is that still open to public with new owners? Any closures of venues.
    I felt like things were going backwards last year.
    What about that Japanese place next to the onsen.
    Inside knowledge appreciated. Cheers
    Do like blizzard brewery :)

    The Arlberg will still stink. Nice to see some things don't change.
