    Good to see snow making has commenced at the Pass.:)
    Anyone have any news to report?
    From what I hear lodge bookings seem to be better than last year.

    Looking to lock in some time at some point in time. Need to give Mocko & +1 a good farewell at some point in time.

    Angus, you are relying on the fact that Mocko has said that this will be his last season at CP. How many times have we heard that ! Might be easier getting him to Japan next January for a ski.

    I notice that the CP snow report is no longer appearing on the snow report page. Have they withdrawn from updating this site?

    yep, they have been hopeless at updating for several years, this year nothing at all. They don't have a feed we can use either.

    A good time was had by all yesterday, well one injury

    I don't recall seeing that much snow in front of top station of the chair before and its only the start, no rocks down the run under the chair. If the snow keeps coming from the same direction we might see a 1964 top station dig out

    Ok the NPWS has given CPV an extension of 18 months to sort out the new lease and there is a petition that CPV would like people to sign as National Sparks & Wildfire Services want to close the resort and only have the Chalet open in summer for walkers

    I would have thought as the resort has been there for so long it is already a part of the environment

    If CPV gets the new lease then there is two new lifts going to be installed, one up Mt Stillwell and the other to the top of rocks above Guthries. This info was given out on the cat ride back to Perisher

    Verdict is good. And you just missed a pretty epic evening with toxicfox and his delightful +1, Mocko and Nola and Rick on bar duties. Sore head tomorrow.
