I remember when the national parks pass day charge went from $20 to $27 that one of the justifications was that NPWS had to fund some of the sewerage treatment plant upgrade works for the expansion of perisher to go ahead. They're still collecting that surcharge. I think one of the posters in that old thread hit the nail othe head, they talked it up & tried to get some buyer interest & push the price up, they were looking at changing the structure of the business a few years ago.
I'm sure PBL looked hard at return on investment & it's not stacking up.
There is potential there but once you've committed to a massive project you can't go back as you risk losing the costs of planning/engineering if the inflexibility of the planning authorities limits your development & forces the build costs up. Would you invest your super in an Aussie ski field redevelopment?
After visiting overseas ski areas you go to our ski fields and wonder why there isn't more off mountain activities and comes back to the length of the season, year round tourism is required. for instance Queenstown NZ is just as busy in summer,why, because it has more attractions which fund a year round tourism industry.

Why spend dollars when the season is rubbish? Best for the packers to save it for a rainy day, oh sorry that is a normal day at perisher!

Lack of patrons? Really? More like a lack of patrons willing to lay down 600k+ for a studio in an unbuild village of uncertain vibe with the economy about to go tits up. Mmm tits.
The vert is fine for me, need the lift to rest my weak legs and the snow was excellent last weekend

If the master plan had them converting PB into a proper MTB or summer hiking destination then there may be some legs for it. PB as a winter-only resort is a busload of fail.
