    Thought this one was worth dredging up.

    We may be relying on snowmaking for a ski at this years season opening by the sound of your long term forecast Pete.

    I think that's highly likely.

    I see on the cams that Buller, Baw Baw and Lake mountain all have big piles of man made snow / ice from their snow factories, it is a pity that both Hotham or Falls Creek don't have a snow factory, without it this year they may not open a lift for skiing until late June, while those with a snow factory will be running lifts for skiers from the opening onwards.

    Yes, but it's only really used for a small run. Bourke St is perfect for it. Can't work out why Selwyn bought one then sent it back after it arrived. They really need one more than any other resort.

    The kind of people that will use the runs with this man made snow are the ones who spend money, they usually rent everything and buy a day ticket, compared to the guys who wait until the steeper slopes have snow, they will have a seasons pass and own all their own equipment, no money to be made from them.
