Have to say I disagree with the sentiment on that one, but this is one of my fave T-Bo T-Bar boarder stacks-

My two buddies fell, got locked into one another (face first) and the T stuck in there too, and got dragged up for what felt like half the lift before they finally came unstuck. As a skier, riding with another skier, I was able to turn around to document the spectacle for them, including a vid I won’t share here.. ;)
Classic!

Not at Thredbo but one of my mates really leaned into the optics whilst the other was oblivious.

One of my best friends came to grief on a board at that exact same spot, the T hit the pylon then her head and she was knocked out cold. With a helmet on. Not one of my fave t-bar stack memories :(

BTW, you can share the vid here... we're all friends ;)

Which i guess means the Restaurant rebuild won't happen till the 23/24 summer?

Where are you finding the DA info? Most sources no longer update as far as I can tell anymore.
Gotta love the Govt's IT, they took a perfectly functioning website and replaced it with a website that's way harder to use
Just found this little graphic on Events Investor section:
  • Alpine Coaster - 22/23 summer
  • More Cruiser bike park - 22/23 and 23/24 summers
  • Snowgums chair replacement in 23/24 summer
  • Preliminary construction on Merritts Restaurant also 23/24 summer

I wonder what Cruiser MTB stages 2 and 3 will entail. Will be interesting to see. If they want to build the Snowgums for 2024, they better get on with submitting a DA because they won't get approval in time otherwise

I'm guessing some lights to enable night comps, maybe another easy trail as well
