Looks different this morning... Is anyone still up there?

(PS - if I had any IT skills I would post the current web cam that doesnt change...)
I'm gonna go for a quick burn tomorrow morning if the sun comes out. Will get bored in a couple of hours with what terrain is left...…….

Was nice early on. Got tracked for us pretty quickly given lack of lifts running, school hols and my kids terrain limitations. Still skied really nicely from top to bottom of what was available this morning though. Bit wet lower down now. As long as it doesn't get too much wetter it should groom up well tonight I think. Good fun snow for this time of year for sure.

What's the chance of Shakey, Little Buller, Summit and Baldy being open and skiable on the weekend? They were looking a bit ragged on Sunday. Picked up a new board in the sales and would like to test it out

Pics pls...
Going home so here’s a few on my last ride. Essentially there wouldn’t be much in the way of skiing if it wasn’t for snowmaking.

Slalom Gully still ok for a bit of fun as it has gradient, the rest might be at 8:30 for an hour or two.

It’s pretty dire. What’s open is sooooo slow and you can’t rip it up.

Spent the day up there. Not much open, but enough to keep me happy on the new board. Not sure there would be anything at all though if it wasn't for the snow making. Gather the new dam should improve the coverage for future years. Icy first thing, but softened up very quickly. Pretty slow by the end of the day.

Took the kids (3 & 5) up - great for them to learn on. I haven’t managed to get up all year so greatful things are still open!

Bourke street has nearly complete cover - will last to the end Shakey Knees is very narrow will be surprised if the can keep it open another week.

Without snow making we would have been done and dusted...

I know many on here wouldn’t care too much but the mini slush machine has done a great job on the toboggan park too. The amount of snow they have there was perfect for a toboggan slide.

Props to Buller for keeping the amount open with the snow that's left.

Wombat will be done by mid week
I doubt howqua and fox will survive

No crowds, fun snow all day. Cracking spring skiing.

After today, is there still enough snow for anything to be open tomorrow?
Daughter (who skis) has picked up a 2nd hand board and wants to try that for the first time. Would just be very slow Bourke St laps for us.
I have a season pass so $$ for lift passes, etc isn't an issue. More to the point - is it worth going at all?

Bourke street will have enough, itll just be a bit tight at the bottom

Where exactly is the new dam going? I thought it was at the Boggy Creek bottom station, but they're doing a lot of digging up top. Or is the whole thing just a lot bigger than I thought?
