All alpine resorts contine to wait for that season opening dump of fresh snow. In the mean time, Lake Mt. have been pumping the man made stuff onto the toboggan runs to get a good base happening. Doesn’t look like anything significant on the way in the next week, though my mother in Bendigo reckons it feels like snows on its way cause her feet are cold??? …How do they come up with these things! A number of Singaporean families in the shop over the last couple of weeks enjoyed a snow experience during their school holidays before ours start. They get a 4 week mid term break!
The shops are getting set up nicely with the last of the equipment arriving. Another Wintersteiger boot dryer has arrived from Austria to join the others. Not only do they dry the boots inside but they also sanitize them. So although we hire out large numbers of boots, we dont get the smells. Speaking of boots, the new fleet of ski boots should be arriving today. The latest gear from Madshus in Norway.
Elevation 423 Bar & Cafe
A new PB for the bar over the opening weekend with 81 main meals served up on the Sunday. Must be the 300 gm Scotch fillet from the Vic markets and Lianne’s homemade apple crumble which has everyone talking. Also, its use as a function venue continues to build with an 18th birthday planned for July. With not many local options it certainly has the atmosphere with its mix of stone and timber and plenty of heaters! In town on a Friday? Try mixing it with the locals for happy hour and a feed. You can also pick up your snow gear at the same time to make a quick start the next morning. We don’t charge extra for you being organized.
Is open…Good gear. Cheap prices.
The dilemma – $10 to rent a new pair of snow boots or $20 to buy a good 1 year old pair with new insoles.
An alert from LM ski patrol this week. Double person toboggans available from Aldi stores have been banned across all Victorian resorts. Please call the shop if you need clarification. Also, consider a helmet for your child this year. $5 to hire and another $3 for a sick cover. Looks good for the photos and they’ll wear it. Take care…
