    Since Saturday the app has stopped doing push notifications on my devices, despite reinstallation.

    I think the ones next to the race courses must make it easier when there are races or training.

    I heard that the reason for roping off under towers was because the clearence above the snow didn't meet an international standard. hopefully they will groom deeper tonight.

    some other ropes near chairs might be for the same reason.

    Not too many real don'ts this year.
    Feathertop restaurant is said to be not good this year. I'm not a fan of jerry's stall or karelia.

    Elk is always good. Need to book for dinner but can usually walk in for lunch.

    Village shuttle still under resourced and waiting times can be long. Avoid if you can.

    Worst crowds are while lessons are on, particularly on Towers and Halleys. Ski early and at lunch time for less crowds. Be prepared to move around for shorter queues. Midweek, summit is rarely bad.

    Be friendly, say nice things to lifties, enjoy the more relaxed vibe

    blue brumby (was Maggie's) and dickie knees are not much good this year. slow service and food nothing to get excited about. cloud 9 and frying pan on the other hand continue to be pretty good after changing management before last season. not cheap but quality and service are good.

    nelse is doing lunches this year and said to be good value

    For the driver of the black Outback who early this morning went to overtake three of us at the straight by the Bogong Village turnoff, putting life and property at risk like that earned you less than one minute by the top.
    Ask yourself whether it was worth it.
