    So I'm about 90% sure that our lolly-named friend is a troll.

    If not he's got absolutely NFI.

    Yeah I agree. I mean, who wants to actually see how much it snows at village level, particularly at night? Only an idiot would want to see that.

    And press refresh and see the amount increase? Especially before a potential daytrip? Who on earth would make a $200-$300 decision at 5am based on a silly webcam image????

    Well buy one and go up to Arlberg and tell them you're going to bolt your camera on their roof, goof.

    Could make it happen if someone was super keen, a regular, long time poster here is the godson of the Arlberg owner.

    That's handy, it'd be a good spot for a multi view cam.
    We should make use of that some time.

    I am not against Indy cameras , I think they should be used together with the RMB cams.
    And Arlberg would be the perfect spot

    And @CarveMan, abbreviations don't stop the fact your losing your temper and starting to swear. The resort cams are indicators of snowfall, not great but it is essentially supplemented by the snow report with accurate nightly snowfall and total snowfall.

    And just remember the VS cam is.... A Web Cam.

    Cams and direct reporting on sites like this have made the resort released reports irrelevant. Too many years of talking shite means that they have no credibility.

    Would I make a decision based on the snow report no way. Would I based on the village cam and the posts of those up there and on the ground, absolutely.

    The VS webcam is pointing at the Buller Central. And frequent walkers and the RMB clear the section of snow anyway.
    I call it a useless camera

    The resort cameras shows you the snow quality and slope, the snow report tells you the measurements and what lifts are actually turning and the reports on this forum give a general review of the conditions as well as tips

    There are post threads in this forum that make the purpose of the cams patently clear.
    I suggest you read them first before you stick your other foot in your mouth.

    And yet, you can still see the ground upon which natural snows shall fall.

    Last time I checked you can't stuff your foot in your mouth

    Yeah I can see natural snow but there might be nothing to see, yet 10 lifts are running with manmade snow. Knowledge from the 80s can't help you now.

    And it yet still shows buildings not slopes

    One day you'll discover what its like to ski on the many runs at Mt Buller without snow making on them , at which point the purpose of these cams should become self evident.

    Yeah I been on many non snowmaking runs and you need an image to know the conditions or a hand written report.

    VS Cam being self evident? Your Joking, aren't you
