    coming to Perisher: https://majorprojects.accelo.com/pu...ed7155/Statement of Environmental Effects.pdf

    Looks like an easterly face going by topo to me (just off lower road run at Blue Cow but closer to Roller Coaster and slightly up the little road that goes to Brumby t-bar/bottom of Pleasant Valley), about 1800m and away from ski traffic so should provide reasonable idea of fresh snowfall. Docs also includes snow pole for base measurement however states that is only for internal review.

    Thanks, that is interesting.

    I know that site, I have visited there in summer. It is where they keep some secret stuff stored! Not actually easy to visit there in winter.

    By the way there are already some of the orange snow depth measurement sticks around. There is one on burnum burnum on Mt P.

    Might be like the ones they have at the other Vail resorts? Always fun to watch.

    Also one on skiers right in the flats just before or after Drop Off at Smiggins and possibly one on the traverse from Side Saddle to Guthega.

    No wonder they don't do more development work than what they do.

    All seems to have gone quiet on this snowfall accumulation webcam? I haven't seen anything. It would have been nice to watch accumulation during the upcoming storms

    A very long way from the snow
    My guess is it will be at least a year from the application until they get approval.
    40-page report to put a stick in the ground.LOL I love this country.

    So did this happen?
    Couldn't have asked for a better year to implement but sounds like it fell through?
