    Default Showboat @ Blue Cow

    First post for the season... Hello Snowatchers!

    I just had a little (envious) look at the excellerator snowcam...

    It looks like they've taken Showboat (the mogul bit) out, and widened the final drop of Excellerator...

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Last week there wasn't enough snow to have the mogul course, this weeks dump has covered it all up. Should be just a matter of time til they can build it again now they have heaps of snow.

    Ohhhhhhhhh - I think I know where I've gone wrong...

    I thought the cam showed that they took out the trees between showboat and the final drop of Excellerator...

    But I think they've actually moved the cam to the middle of Ridge quad... rather than it being at the bottom of the Ridge.

    Yes that's what they have done.
    They moved the camera a few years ago (2012/2013) when they installed new snow making hardware on that central section of the run.
    Its sited near the entrance to Yarrandoo, not far from where the old mid-station on the Ridge quad used to be.
    there is never enough snow
