    Time to start the 2020 thread

    For those who haven't seen it yet, Baw Baw will not be offering season parking passes at all this year and entry must be paid for each visit.

    This is odd considering Buller, Hotham and Falls are still offering (and honouring) season parking passes.
    I doubt i'll be up much this year if i have to pay for every day

    Even more so when Baw Baw has the most expensive day pass (granted, their multi-day pass isn't so bad, but still).

    I might still end up there, purely so I can put Mr 4 into snowboard lessons again.

    And a new announcement (to me): no All Resorts Passes, due to Covid-19 restrictions. This could make for a very expensive, or very limited season.
    Meanwhile, the cams show almost nothing at all from yesterday's system, whereas Buller and even LM got some white goodness.

    That one seems inherently bizzare. If the resorts are actually restricting entry to those who hold a valid lift pass, then an unlimited access pass for a vehicle shouldn't be a problem. :/

    I suspect the resorts want to control numbers and don't want ARP holders just rocking up whenever they choose (as I like to do). So that won't be happening very much. Could be a Gwinear sort of year.
