I think they kill you with the resort entry though. I seem to remember it being north of $57/ day a few years back and I doubt that it will have done anything other than go up since.

$59 first day, $20 thereafter capped at $159.

Was interested to see, we might make use of Baw Baw in the right conditions this season.

Thredbo not in the running ? . No apparent premium whales there . ( There’s a bloody big whale not in the photos at Perisher where ski school meets that challenges Bawbs and good on Baw Baw for that and their lift pricing . Who’s responsible for the entry gouge though ? )

I'm guessing,

that thredbo's automated tower system has so much hang time and plume spread that wales are a thing of the past.

To make whales, you really need ground guns. And then you burn a crapload of grooming hours pushing them out to level.

I prefer thredbo's system for it's ability to produce enormous amounts of snow over larger areas and it's incredible ability to turn on and off inside 10mins. It's ability to self tune to exact conditions is also incredible as we no longer have to fear double ejections from guns running wet.

BB charge big for gate entry due to the majority of punters choosing snowplay over skiing. Check out the toboggan slope web cam, mid winter on a Saturday. Mayhem
