    Does anyone have the downlow on PB possibly opening more lifts this weekend or early next week. Surely they could open a few more than just the 8 seater and the mitchell T bar?

    If this snow continues the cover will be close to good enough in a lot of areas. That doesn't necessarily mean they'll open new areas though.

    Blue Cow is ready and waiting. If they don't open that then they're just silly because everyone will go to Thredbo where the supertrails will be crankin'!

    Yeah, blue cow by fri/ sat. A few other areas as well perhaps, a lot will depend on tonights accumilation.

    Should be able to blast a fair bit once the cold air moves back in.

    How much snow do we usually need to see Mt P. open up? From the snow cams it's looking like it might not be too far off .. maybe another 20 or 30cm needed?

    Perisher website hinting that Mount P isn't far off now... As more staff and skiers arrive, it will open. Don't think it could be a snow issue - look at what they opened it with last year!!

    Mt P looks ok on the weekend. The ice made it sketchy though.

    Pretty valley can't be far away. It's groomed and they were running it and putting the padding around the lift towers on saturday.

    They were also pushing snow around for the traverse to blue cow at the top of the quad chair in perisher.

    Well, Guthega and BC will be inked from today with the traverse trail opening up. And I think the access trail from top of quad to BC is opening up as well!

    Re: More lifts open for PB this Weekend?

    There was more that just Front Valley open last weekend. I'm sure more lifts will open over the next few days. The snow conditions are actually quite good (not a lot of depth, mind, but good nevertheless) so it's just a matter of setting up trails, signs, getting staff etc.

    Soon grasshopper, soon.

    Its not far off. Rode it on Sat.

    Was nice through the trees yet patchy on the trail.

    The traverse back to the carpark was in good nick.
