    Default Anyone heading to the mountains for opening weekend?

    Not long to go now. Anyone heading up to either party or slide. Can see each resort (apart from Selwyn) having at least one lift running.

    Buller and Baw Baw already have piles of snow due to their snow factories. Selwyn did buy one last year but have since sent it back with the word I got from them was..."The snow factory was sent back to the company that made it as it did not suit Selwyns needs." This seems odd as they always struggle to maintain a cover due to their position and low elevation.

    Currently looks like only Perisher (Front Valley) and Buller (Bourke Street) will be running this weekend....maybe Baw Baw if they can groom the piles of snow the factory has been building.

    Looks like there could be some natural snow coming on the horizon, think the next couple of days updates should show something building mid month.

    Keen to go ride but it will take a few weeks of snow falls and snow guns to get a variety of runs open by the look of it. We are holding out before booking a lot of trips down.

    Yeah looks like a few runs may be open next weekend if the current forecasts hold. Probably not going to have anything decent open til late in the month.
