That is because it is Friday and nobody wants to go out on the weekend. But seriously, what are we looking at? 7cm accumulated. First car through would break tracks to the bitumen. As long as it opens on Monday morning.BHP rd from dam wall to trapyard will be closed at 5pm today in anticipation of snow
Not sure snow falls yesterday blanketed anything much. Bogong wasn't blanketed yesterday and what fell in the morning was melting by early afternoon. Certainly a bit more this morning and probably enough to stop a little car or motorbike from travelling BHP road. Temps are going to stay low for a couple more days so man made snow could have some chance of sustaining if they keep firing the guns but we are back to the positives from Monday.
They are certainly making snow, but I am not sure what the strategy is either. Trying to open early?call me cynical but i doubt that they have started snowmaking in earnest
maybe testing the system
maybe purely for marketing
snow made this early nearly always gets washed away. maybe the forecast is particularly favourable - i haven't checked
good on them. i'm pleased to be wrong on that.They are certainly making snow, but I am not sure what the strategy is either. Trying to open early?
They’ve already started on Drovers too!good on them. i'm pleased to be wrong on that.
I doubt that they would be aiming to open early - that's actually a bit of a nightmare. works for buller but not so much falls & hotham.
Getting 70 -100cm down on wombats, main st and mousetrap is always the top priority. if they think the weather forecast is good enough, that will be their first goal. then add drovers and as much of highway that they can reach. then start on ruined & scotts
I'll see what happens, in past years but with a different operator of the lift company I have been allowed to "Sneak" through for a day. Drop stuff off, drive back to Windy Corner and walk back to do the stash and set-up.I can see that they have blocked off slalom st. that would not necessarily mean that mckay rd would also be blocked at wombats. various operational things still need road access if possible.
Not yet. Mail out in May is what they indicated.Has anyone received their resort entry season pass? (I think it says mail out in April / May).
Yes, yes it is..
Will get a babysitter one day so mum and I can have a long lunch but other days will be pick up at 1, quick ski and then lunch together and a ski in the afternoon
I'm just glad the season seems to be a goer
We found it’s not easy combining skiing and kid (1) in the same trip. The sproggy needs are just different to our adult ski needs. Gets slowly easier, unless like with our 12 YO, they claim they’ll alpine ski under sufferance. And no XC at all!
Threatening to ‘leave him behind wth Grandma’ for a week/weekend helps to quell that sentiment, for a while at least...?
Lift tickets, rentals, and lessons for 12 June to 4 July, on sale from tomorrow!
Do we need to book (reserve) days for lift if we have EPIC pass?
Also really interested to see if the lift/lessons sell out.
Hopefully it's not the click stress of last year!
EDIT: Found this on EPIC website:
"We do not anticipate 2021 Epic Australia Pass holders will need to make reservations to ski or ride at Hotham, Falls Creek or Perisher this season. However, in the event the resorts need to manage capacity to allow for physical distancing, Vail Resorts may manage access through a reservation system that prioritises pass holders."
So I think it's just lessons that need to be booked.
I interpret as no need to book unless Gov regs change. or possibly if very little is open for school holidays because of poor cover.
