    New DA for a new, 3.1km green MTB trail. It is specifically designed to be accessible from either the Gunbarrel Express via The All-Mountain, or from the Merritts Gondola. The new trail passes by the new Merritts Gondola Mid-station to allow uploading in summer, before splitting into two directions, one direction continuing onto the bottom of the Gunbarrel Express, the other heading to Valley Terminal. It is shown in yellow, in relation to the All-Mountain which is in red: I found it interesting that the DA contained a map of future MTB developments which haven't had DAs yet: In this map, N8 and the top half of N4 have not received DAs yet. This DA describes upper N4 as a more difficult run, but doesn't say anything about N8. N1 is now Easy Street and N6 is Ricochet. It's unknown whether N8 or Upper N4 will be built. According to the DA, the plan was made before the Merritts Gondola (and presumably other developments) were a contemplation.

    So I also heard the other day that there is a women in head office in Sydney who is of the belief that you have to spend money to make money.

    That's got to be good in the context of this thread!

    VT, the Alpine Hotel and the Keller bar complex contradict that sentiment

    Personally I woulda done VT and gondola at the same time and integrated the bottom gondy station into some sorta whackadoo indoor outdoor atrium style deal. Money would clearly be an issue but ya can dream

    I think VT has a heritage listing which would slow things

    Yeah I agree.

    It seems strange to have it exposed so much. A trumped up Quad!!

    Ugghhh.
    I find it has no appealling features that would warrant retention I can think of.
