How far is the mountain from Canberra? I studied there before moving to the US and I forgot which mountain I visited when I was in the land down under.

Don't know how long that stuff will hang around for, but it looks nice to see some white stuff on the ground again.

All body parts crossed it will be a cracker of a season - return riders will enjoy one of the major improvements to the resort over the summer - the extension of Happy Valley T-Bar downhill will make it easy to traverse from runs like Burnum Burnum. Was extended about 200m.EmbarrassedLOL

Also brand new Groomer arrived specifically for making terrain parks ... so you air jockies will love that.

Plan to open, not to open has not been finalised yet - snowmaking is going well, with good size whales in Front Valley.
 
The music should be great if all else fails ... keep you posted, but join the other thread ATTN Snowfans - Perisher Update
