    Interesting. I can report further next week as I am at a meeting this Sunday where the MHARM will do a presentation. Hate to see the Coral carpark go but Mt Hotham desperately needs to see some development activity which hopefully will flow on to some slope and lift activity.

    Why does it need development activity?

    Give up on the dream of new lifts. That's just not going to happen.

    Just like taking carpark area to build St Falls has lead to slope and lift development at Falls? Nothing significant in the Falls ski area since St Falls.

    Because they will happily take your money while making the experience more draining.

    I thought the development is just on the existing RMB site not the car park.

    I always laugh at the massive rush to get things done before it starts snowing in Australia.

    In Utah they build houses all year.

    There has been construction work going on since at least Jan in the car park. However I thought that was to do with gas main. Could be wrong.

    That's correct Cuppa. The new development is at the existing RMB site and it may include underground car parking. The works in the car park now are the new Telstra exchange which will be competed before start of season. Planning for extra car parking at Loch is underway. I was at the stakeholder briefing last night at MCG.
