    On the list of runs open today, it said that wombat's ramble is open, although probably with poor cover. Can anyone confirm this? It seems remarkable that they only need 9cm of snow to open it up, albeit for a short time.

    it was open yesterday (Sept 29th). up top it was fine for the first half. there were a few narrow patches approaching the lodges and getting down to Snowland we had to be careful of the hidden stones that trash bases late in the season. otherwise, it was a nice gentle ramble to finish the day for little kids, weary skiers or those wanting to finish the day on ski not on a lift.

    Go to the Falls Creek snow conditions map. It lists wombat's ramble as poor, but then below that, on the list of runs, it marks wombat's with a tick
