    Hi all

    Thinking of taking the heli link from Falls to Hotham on Thursday as it looks like being the first day of ok weather.

    Is it worth it snow wise? Anyone going to be there and available to show a first timer around. I'm not very good (ok on blue runs) but will give anything a go.

    Is the heli link even open? Haven't seen it open from Hotham to Falls in the last few weeks ...

    Who knows what Thursday will be like, precipitation is growing!

    It was here on Sunday but I don't know how many people would be using it. Very very quiet here.... really noticed it on Sunday and Monday today was so quiet numbers wise it was astounding.

    It was running on the weekend!
    Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

    The helicopter lives off the mountain with the new owners, and has to come up from Mt Beauty if it operates. It's a bit more difficult judging the weather when you're not up the top of the hill, and there have also been some days when they've been stuck in the valley due to weather, when it's been clear up the top!
