    Resorts could run some lifts in summer for MTB and skiing .
    No idea about cost though

    No they don’t but it should be considered . I did a feasibility study a few years back here in Newcastle . It stacked up and with the strong summer numbers the Nsw resorts should be looking at this . ( particularly tbo fri flat and perhaps merrits , selwyn should look at this too , and Perisher front valley )

    Looks a bit too flammable for Aus summers.

    You should go. Plastic skiing would get in the way of everything else.

    And green?

    How do you get to final production without anyone realising snow isn't green?
