    LIFT UPDATE
    20 June 2007

    Falls Creek expects to operate the following 10 lifts from this weekend for skiing and boarding:

    · Ruined Castle
    · Scott (for access)
    · Towers
    · Drovers Dream
    · Mouse Trap
    · Boardwalk
    · Monkey Bar
    · Falls Express
    · Eagle Chairlift
    · Gully Chairlift

    Wombat’s Ramble and Broadway are currently open for skiable access back to the village. All hometrails are open.

    We currently have 8 lifts and the snowstorm has brought lots of fresh, dry snow.

    nah i doubt it, im guessing there'll be like 1 strip of snowmaking down scoitts, but not good enough quality to do laps.
    either that, or they'll have that cat track over to ruined open

    No the latest is the snowmakers now have scotts in a good enough condition to open that as well for skiing.

    How much more snow does the summit area need to open? 20 - 30cm?

    I would say to open Summit about another 40 to 50 cm, it takes about a metre.
