And go...
Falls Creek snow cam page got the pre-season overhaul today updating with all the cam changes at Falls the last couple of months. Vail resorts have been installing new cams at Falls (and Hotham) all of which appear to be the same approach as they have with Perisher - ie Good quality high-definition cams capable of streaming via YouTube. The stupid 360 cams appear to have been ditched.

am I supposed to see banner ads there? is it just the forums where gold passes buy us immunity?

I won't be looking at that page while there's an ad for a nat candidate staring at me

AFAIK banner ads have always accompanied the cams as they are outside the forum, irrespective of membership status.

As for the nausea-Nat ad.

Be consoled that in YOUR electorate he doesn’t stand a chance….

I know Richard and Ian need to get some money out of the site. i hope that maybe they could be a bit more selective about which ads they accept.

You think we approve a queue of ads before they run? (I though your mental model of how the internet works was stronger than that)

We block categories -- such as 'get rich quick', 'diet products' and 'alternate medicine' - but if we blocked every category that had the potential to upset someone's sensibilities then there would be no ads whatsoever.

I realise that you only have very coarse controls. I also realise that you can't block everything and still make a bit of money. but blocking political ads might be nice - just my opinion.

is a uap ad any better than an alternative medicine ad?

anyway, it's your show. i'm just expressing one opinion

Interesting...no ads on the FC cam page on my phone, but on my laptop, I did get asked to go on an all inclusive fishing trip at the top of the page...

Different viewing experience in both of course, but no ads on my phone at least

Will we get a live stream like Perisher and Thredbo have?
I spent a bit of time watching those wistfully during lockdown.

Hotham has one, so far.

I'd say that FC will likely have one by start of the season, my guess is it will probably be on the village side because data to the southside is all by fixed-wireless links and they don't have much bandwidth via that wi-fi link and it's subject to weather loss.

So in a welcome move both Falls Creek and Hotham are offering season long gear rental this year - $249 for kids and $299 for adults.

In an ironic twist, however, at Falls Creek it is limited to alpine skis and snowboards, while at Hotham you can also get XC skis for the season!

lift co at Falls probably don't have stock of xc because there is a dedicated xc hire.
