Quoting crackson: Because its updating like a surfer..
The rotary revolution is disconcerting. Lucky beginners maybe wont have to unlearn the dogmatic dogma in their firmweir.

wed 8 Thur 9 looks like the best for learners. Enough snow, snow report not updated, for some reason.

Quoting alisha.: I cannot cancel my booking, but they have offered me to swap the booking to different dates. But I can only swap once! Now to know when to swap to! Lesson learnt!
Alisha, I'm sure there's some clever people who lurk here with solid data re historical snow depths. But from many years learning the hard way, I reckon late July/early August would be the most reliable period for Baw Baw and most Victorians resorts. Being southerly and fairly low altitude, Baw Baw sometimes does well from early winter southerly blasts - this will probably still happen this season! fWIW: Higher resorts Falls/Hotham & NSW sometimes peak later in August or occasionally, early September. With a warming climate, Spring is steadily becoming less certain. June has always been dodgy but hasn't deteriorated as fast as September - I believe! Enough waffle! Good luck with the rebooking. I hope you have stacks of snow and a great ski! SG.

Alisha, in times of lean snow it pays to book one of the big 3, ie. falls, Hotham then Buller - which have more snowmaking, altitude and cold. I love Bawbs too but it's often very marginal and better to book just after a dump.

Was up there yesterday. Only Tank Hill and Hut Run and their respective t-bars open. Snow fading fast, Hut Run was open to tower 4, probably will only be for a little bit longer because the dirt patches were getting larger every run. Will need a top-up very soon if they're going to stay open.

Just tell her to NOT sit back and it will work well. Interesting to compare BB with Buller on Friday: Buller: Everywhere already groomed, four lifts running with free rides, lots of snacks. BB: Chasing all tobogganners of the runs (groomed and ungroomed) , no lifts , food ONLY at Kelly's (but nobody knew where it was located.) So that you know what to expect I will recount three memorable past situations: 1. "No boarding without a leash!" This on a hill where it is hard to determine which way is down! Someone cut up bits of rope to save the day. 2. Got up early, drove to BB and presented at 8.30 to sample the new snow before it went off. At 10.30 a lone patroller was still slowly working his way down the hill, planting an orange pole here and there while we waited.. 3.An instructor mentioned on the net that it was a weary walk up from the lift to the pub. Fired on that same day! But still has some of the old magic left!

The t-bar. That will be fun! Haha. I dread taking her on the t-bar!

IMHO The Summit run is the easiest to learn on Catch the T Bar to about 1/2 way up, then it's a long steady slope to learn on!

So.. which run is the easiest for kids?

Quoting bawbawbel: Congrats! You OWNED the mountain. Sat will be very different. South Face Road will be snow covered and slow. Avoid!
S F Road clear and fast today. But wanting chains on 2wd AND AWD from the turnoff to the top. This season there might be lots of discussions on the way up of what an exempt Four Wheel Drive consists of.

Will be much better when the lifts are open! Little one had fun trying her skis! She told me she prefers ski school, guess I'm not a good teacher! Haha. I got a good workout dragging her up the hills!
