    Dear Perisher,

    What are these rubbish snow reports that you are producing for the 2014 season so far? They very little detail.

    And, the Parks n Pipe page hasn't been updated since 2013.

    I miss the daily video reports. The crap they post now about the life changing experiences and other BS is of little benefit to anyone.

    With the exception of them pointing out @Normo so I can follow him :evil:

    Errr - Wrong answer jamesc.

    There have been lifts open, albeit, very few, there has been a 'mini terrain park' on front valley since opening weekend.

    There reporting has taken a distinct turn for the worse - not even a PM update today.

    Thredbo miles ahead at the moment IMO

    Agreed. Obviously there has been heaps of snow but a bit more on how things are progressing re lifts and trails planned to open in the future would be good .at least there is a proposed lifts list for tomorrow but can you get off at the top of the quad?

    Yep - looks like they are focusing more on social media than their reports this year. I got more of an answer via FB.

    Agreed Kiter, an improvement.

    What makes me laugh at this year's reports is the Skitube promo at the bottom, showing a sole snowboarder surrounded by vacant seats in an otherwise empty carriage.

    Whoever has the fertile imagination to concoct such lurid fantasy is clearly wasted in Perisher's marketing department. They ought to be a screenwriter for Disney.

    "Dances with snow"

    "Our snowmakers are still sending out some white flakes. The wind is whipping them up into a swift movement of twirls and swirls showing the raw beauty that nature can create even with man-made snow. As the wind dances with the snow, you can dance in those wind stashes that are being created."

    Really this report takes the cake. What is going on in Perisher media? What are they smoking?

    Not just Perisher. Look at report from other resorts. They too are smoking something. Maybe the way Thredbo does it seem more complete than other, but still lacking.
