I think that will be the place. Haven't seen/heard of any updates on snowmaking for that area yet.Lady Mamabear said:Would that baby be for the new snowrunner area located to the right hand side of Friday Flat? I would assume it would require a decent amount of snowmaking.
True, especially near the end of season. It was all ice even at the top of FF, not snow.gareth_oau said:you can assume that snowmaking there would be critical - the very bottom of FF is often more wet woodchips than snow.
Thredbo FB said:Take a look at what's been happening over the warmer months here at Thredbo Resort. Friday Flat is now 30% bigger with a new designated Beginner Bowl and a brand new surface lift - Sunkid Wonder Carpet. Check out the brand new beginner run Giddy Up (formerly the lower slope of High Noon) and the new track for the bottom of High Noon that leads you directly to Gunbarrel Express Chairlift. Automated snowmaking has also been installed across Friday Flat and Eagle Way. WINTER IS COMING...
Should have taken them to Perisher.Lady Mamabear said:Wish it had been like this last year when I brought my timid Snow Virgin buddies - might have had a higher success rate with them.
Good work getting it done for this year Thredbo!
Lady Mamabear said:I might be mistaken but I think the vast majority will have already turned toward the EDI lift, or stopped at the snowrunner...so no problem.
Dos said:Alright, let's wait and see how it goes. We'll find out soon enough.
As for the fence, I just feel that the last bit gets in the way of my eyes, like it squeezes the space somewhat. Had it been erected in straight line to the end, it will feel much more open.
Yes, I dream a lot, too, lately. And not sweet dreams, which is good.Lady Mamabear said:
Sweens said:Thredbo has released their application for the alteration/extension to the High Noon Run Out/Friday Flat area.

In short, they are cutting a path to the west of the current path, which is 18m, then narrows to 12m before having a bridge over the river, before cutting back into the original run.
- Snowrunner #1 is being moved into the 'bowl' that is located on the Jindabyne side of Friday Flat, effectively the snowplay area.
- A new Snowrunner (Includes roof!) is being built going from the Top of Easy Does it towards the old exit run, so that the beginners can access the area.
it just makes a quick part narrower..people will be hauling to get to the new run. I see some carnage.Lady Mamabear said:Why? A fall line issue, too tight a bend, or just that you think people will continue on the same path they've skied for years - like a homing pidgeon?
I'd be more concerned about the nutters who see it as a terrain feature and work out a way to jump over it onto Friday Flat
Why can't they cut the exit a little further down, say where the lable "Rock Groyn" is? That way it will really separate people from the new FF run and people from HN will go straight down to Gunbarrel without turning and joining back to the end of FF.VSG said:This is what was supposed to be built.
