The report today says Northside express will open from this weekend, which is awesome as I prefer to park there and get the chair up and ski across to Bourke. Fingers crossed this next snow system allows that to happen as I am up on Tuesday to test out my new skis

Hopefully with the dump next week, we should get Howqua/Summit area open.

Where? Edit: Wombat is opening! I think Shakey wouldn't be far behind.

Kenziepettit: Today - No photos unfortunately as it was foggy all day. Same runs open as last report. Bourke street is holding up well but was a mess already with people. Abom was strangely better in some places but much worse in others. Skyline was by far the pick, both sides of the lifts were fun for most of the day. Snow is overall very chalky and icy. A lot of punters around, had quite a few close calls with both people riding and random people walking around abom. I couldn't get much of a look at future terrain due to cloud, however cover to lbs seems enough, there is also 3 huge snow piles in front of the snow machine that i assume is to be pushed down Shakey knees.
Great report, keep it up!

Froff Life: Yep usually the order goes: BS > Baldy > LSB/Wombats > Summit > rest of the hill
I reckon they will get Shakey and Wombat open before Summit.

Kenziepettit: I would assume they are focusing all snowmaking on maintaining the base they have on bs, and building wombat and Shakey as they only need the one lift as wolly mentioned. Once we get a decent natural fall I could see them giving summit a crack

Max29057: It looks like they are neglecting summit for snowmaking I hope they begin soon because with a little bit more natural snow it looks like they could get a solid base.

Seems to be a lot of snow being moved around from the cams in the Shakey knees and koflers areas

Froff Life: How were the crowds for the first week of VIC school holidays?
Crowds where fine, didn't have to line up for skyline or abom at all, burke street maybe a 3 minute wait
