IMO:

South Perisher
Sun Valley T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday. Was skiing down Sun Valley the week before this system came)
Olympic T-Bar - 60 cm (Usually takes ages for T-Bar track to be ready, even in a decent season)
Eyre T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday, should be a bit rocky but fine)
International T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, although not entirely necessary to open up new terrain)

Front Valley
North Perisher T-Bar - 50 cm
Interceptor Quad Chair - 40 cm (maybe less, its been done before....2006)
Telemark T-Bar - Its not listed as open but it should be (unless they can't get the trail from Pretty Chair decent)

Smiggens Hole
Piper T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday)
Link T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday)
Burke T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system)
Wills T-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system)
Hume T-Bar -10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday)

Blue Cow
Pleasant Valley Quad Chair - 20 cm

Guthega
Cow Pastures J-Bar - 10 cm (anything after the next system, I reckon this coming Tuesday)

Feel free too stomp on any or all of my estimates.

Yeh pretty close, i think Eyre/Inter might take a little more
I was at Perisher after last seasons second "Big" snowfall at the start of July.

Smiggins was mostly covered, the Link T was a little sketchy, Interceptor was open but very limited, Guthega was open but very poor in places.
Most of the link trails were open, but again very limited. Mt Perisher still had MANY rocks uncovered

The depth then was 71.3, currently it is 44.9 so even if they open more lifts bear in mind the terrain around them would be quite unpredictable, holes, rocks, bushes etc

Hi,

Out of interest I spent all this afternoon skiing Eyre. Went from the double chair, skied the run through various lines, down to the T-bar loading point. From there I went on the road and cruised back down to the double chair,. There is some great snow out there at the moment. However, there are still plenty of rocks around, so you need to keep your eyes open. Also the creek is still open in spots. Definitely worth a look though. The perisher staff were loading the T's onto the rope today, so I think it will open pretty quickly after the next snow fall. Sun valley also has some great stashes of snow.

This afternoon they were also putting the T's on leichhardt.
