    Hmm wouldn't think so. I have seen people skinning in May.

    but that when nothing in the resort was open!

    You're in the National Park. Perisher's lease only extends 10m either side of the lift lines and it's not exclusive anyway. They can't stop you skinning.

    There is no reason they'd want to anyway. Unless you're being a pain in the arse doing something stupid like climbing the fall line in GG or such.

    In case anyone missed it--

    "Perisher will be opening early with the Village Eight Express set to open for skiing and boarding this Friday 5 June.

    Saturday 6 June will see the Perisher Express Quad chairlift open for skiing and boarding to Mid-station as well as a number of skier conveyors on Front Valley. The Perisher Express will also open to the Top-station for sightseeing across the weekend. With continued cold temperatures and great snowmaking conditions, more lifts may open for the weekend!"

    They're there to stop the Parkwits from taking on the trees and jumping on/over the grooming machines before the Ski Patrol are on site to issue Stern Warnings.............(maybe)

    Just went to pickup a new ski jacket I bought for youngest astro. Got a phone call on the way, locking in some freebie accommodation in Jindy this weekend with a mate.:woohoo:

    Went to pay the woman for the jacket. She refused my money. Said she wanted to spread some good karma, because the snow gods delivered. :woohoo:

    WTF ?? I think I'm supposed to ski this weekend.

    So I'm locked in with Youngest Astro and at least 1 crew. :thumbs:

    There's a young Indian girl in town, protecting a parking space in town (just big enough for a Yaris).
    Part of your deal, I s'pose?

    Freebie?

    Or you just can't buy online/advancepurchase.

    Or they are waiting to see what other resorts do?

    Who knows.

    But they certainly wont be forcing people to buy 2 days!

    Albeit with some of the worst fall line skiers in Australia.

    Yeah but I'll be long gone on Saturday. Friday is where its at if you can make it for fresh dry untracked stuff......Friday arvo into Saturday the temps warm up and it won't be nearly as nice on the weekend, albeit, its pretty awesome to be doing some decent runs on the 5th June in any season.
