Never mind. France this week FTW.
Is there any future possibility for a Mt. Hood / WBC / Copper type post season setup on Bourke, that patch on summit or skyline area?
Few people come post season.
does anyone know what this might mean?
it means they want to relocate a shipping container!
Why does that need a planning permit?
It ticks the boxes somehow to necessitate a permit. I'm guessing based on its dimensions it's considered a structure.
I remember for a construction job near Morwell, we were setting up our lay down and couldn't bring in any containers until we got a planning permit from the Latrobe City Council. It was meant to take 3 months to get through but there's more than one way to skin a cat.....
The container is where they store the moguls for summer. great care and planning has to be done to move them in preparation for winter!
A new snow cam for the factory.
this coming season seems promising, with the new snow-factory. Will be exciting to see Bourke Street covered from top tot bottom for opening weekend!
My first run too some 38 years ago. I can remember the thrill of the 'steep bit' on the left just outside/down from the Arlberg.... woooh! ⛷
Does anyone know if the dam is still scheduled to be installed? or have they scrapped the idea?
They said to me ask us in May
Still waiting on permit and funding.
Although the confidence is building on getting it to happen.
Here's a rumour......Bourke St has snow for Easter.
Some family members of mine are up there ATM getting their gear before an OS trip & posted on FB, the snow piles are pretty impressive already, almost 2m high.
Another person posted that the snow seems pretty durable over the last few warm days.
You can also see the piles on the snow factory cam
It looks like the machine is having a chunder as it spits it out.
It's unfortunate but somehow I'm not surprised - I'm sure this behaviour happens everywhere regardless of public / private entities!
I just spoke to somebody in the RMB about it who is of the belief that all are innocent and it's just disgruntled ex employees making false statements.
I appreciate that the report uses a photograph of a telemarker on Mt Stirling.
Pic is a Buller Patroller on day off. Taken top of Slalom Gully, not on Stirling.
Went for a ride up the mountain after work and checked it out, still pumping out the stuff. The material looks something like this -
Quite icey at the look of it?
I thought it was more like Maclaughins. I didnt think you could see the bluff like that from the south side faces.
