    So how long have I got until the Pretty Valley road gets the gate locked?
    UB needs to get in the firewood to the hut and I need to leave a winters reading in the hut library and stash a bottle or three of port somewhere

    And I don't think they are seriously making snow, just testing the system and doing PR

    Correct. News came via their email.

    "Blasting the snowmaking guns for the first time this year, 6:00am, 7 April, 2016

    The Snowmaking Team took advantage of the freezing temperatures and low humidity overnight to test our snowmaking guns for the first time this year in preparation for the season ahead.."

    I can feel the excitement just starting to grow :)

    OK So?/ I hear that they are making and that we are getting some natural snow as well
    Looking forward to plenty of falls at Falls this year if I don't fall over too often
