'life begins' for the 'iconic' International Poma

The International Poma turned forty this year.

Mountain murmurs suggesting its closure might be imminent led to the formation of a Facebook group called International Poma - Falls Creek - Should Be National Heritage Listed!

Concerned that the 'Inter' hadn't yet started running and that it might disappear like the former Village T-Bar, the Facebook group (now with over 380 members) scheduled a rally for Saturday 25 July to demand that the ski lift start operating.

As it eventuated, the International Poma started running on the day before the scheduled rally and Falls Creek Ski Lifts heralded the ski lift as 'iconic' in their media release.

Some nice 'Inter' photos from the Facebook group here.
