Supposedly multi story, but no other info. Not exactly a PR triumph. Hope there’s a restaurant or something. Agree otherwise wasted opportunityTrue, re this year, however that looks to have the capacity for less than 100 cars. Not details provided in the vid as usual.
Yep, I'm just thinking of the space - it's not very wide or long. But yeah, def more than a 100. Would be good to the flythough detail the visitor facilities e.g showers & rest room etc. Lost opportunity for a sun deck and beer cafe on top.Notes say multi deck carpark so that should be 2 or 3 levels
Yeah I think they're replacing the ski patrol hut eventually,and that's where the restaurant n stuff might go.I thought I heard or read somewhere, that there would be an updated shelter / toilets / food outlet thingy associated with the new carpark (or maybe to replace the old one near the ski patrol hut. I could be completely making that up though.....
Correct, they're calling it a 'visitor centre'.I thought I heard or read somewhere, that there would be an updated shelter / toilets / food outlet thingy associated with the new carpark (or maybe to replace the old one near the ski patrol hut. I could be completely making that up though.....
Will be great conversation at lunch over the roar of the mighty diesel!
Get a load of the cars parked across lines and across carparks. Artistic render even takes into account ******* international tourists
I would be interested to know which bits of black top are actually partly glass. I wonder if it improves grip at low temperatures?
Nick and I grew up together at Hotham. He’s pretty eco minded which will be good for the resort long term I reckon. Oh, and he teles too, so it’s all good.
A bit of a rumour that the Dinner Plains Hotel has changed hands and won’t be operating this winter. Can Anyone shed some light on this. I believe High Planes Lodge may also have changed hands.
DP property prices gone bananas too, they will likely build on the cheap, market them well and make a killing. It’ll be the Arlberg of DP
I suspect on the Harrietville side that Buckland Gap just made for a far more hospitable location to put the entry gate when it used to require someone to be there to sell you an entry pass.Why is the resort area Buckland gap - mother Johnsons?
Why not say Diamantina - wire plain
Ridiculous that to access all the roadside backcountry I have to both have a car pass (for a road I already pay 3 registration fees for, isn't snow clearing done by vicroads?) AND this season have a covid test
(I'd be happy to pay an additional tax, but $550 to park on a public access road seems excessive)
I hate the modern world sometimes. Too many people and rules
And the location of wang club would have been a factor. The boundary would have been drawn to include itI suspect on the Harrietville side that Buckland Gap just made for a far more hospitable location to put the entry gate when it used to require someone to be there to sell you an entry pass.
something as simple as that.
It's a nothing story..... two cars most likely slid into a bank and needed assistance getting back on the road, at the same time during the same weather event hundreds of cars over the state will have slid off wet roads with far greater consequence and no headlines.

"Mount Hotham police warn drivers after two cars without snow chains"
The Tee Mobile has a Limited slip dif. . My LSD days are confined to these motoring moments these days.The only place you may have needed chains this afternoon (to get out of the carpark). Wouldn't be good risking it for 2wds and ending up stuck halfway...or in the Armco. There are alot of new snow visitors at DP
Everywhere else was cleared
Not a problem for me with my rebuilt rear end with aftermarket LSD
Perhaps the alpine shire should invest in heated pavement
