A couple of pictures of the cloud starting to roll in, looking north towards Guthega from the top of Mt P this afternoon

Can confirm that it’s slippery off (as well as on) the groomed runs, I actively avoided leaving the groomers today. I took a video of a run down Wylie’s next to Eyre this morning, you can hear how icy it is. I had a little moment at one point but kept it together. It was a little busy so needed to take it easy at times.

Jonathan_P: One phrase I don’t want to hear again, watch out.... ................ then I heard from behind WATCH OUT, that was it, bang, fully taken down by a snowboarder
So sorry to hear that. Hope you are OK. Is this a good time to ask if anyone can complete the line from that old Jimeoin advert that went something like: "I was standing looking at the view the other day, when a snow boarder came up and introduced himself, and have you ever noticed that a snowboarder always introduces himself the same way, he said...................."

Donzah: Hot tip from growing up in rural NZ. Vets are way better at stitches than a clinic doctor. Way tighter and neater.
Yeah, but look what they do to horses with a gammy leg

Jonathan_P: One phrase I don’t want to hear again, watch out.... Headed straight to Mt P for my lesson, bit icy but fun towers run followed by International t bar, followed by Eyre we focused on edging and balance. Then we headed back to the chair to rest the legs. Crowds had descended it was super busy but legs were working well I was in control keeping pace, then I heard from behind WATCH OUT, that was it, bang, fully taken down by a snowboarder, skis went flying, he pulled me to the ground as he grabbed my jacket, head hit the ground, he then spent the next 30 seconds dragging me down the hill pushing me in the back before we came to a stop. Luckily not injured, glasses in top pocket broken, yet some how dusted myself off and finished the lesson strongly we stayed mostly with the T bars. The groomed runs next to the Ts on Mt P very nice, anything else icy death trap caught a few unhappy customers. Not sure I feel confident to go back there by myself based on today, not until I can navigate to the t bars bit nervous I will find myself in the icy wasteland. Lunch joined my daughter lesson, she is having a lot of fun, going well doing some nice slices of cake (pizzas). Afternoon headed to Guthega conditions were good, blue cow down near the Terminal Quad chair not so much hot sloppy mess. Bring on tomorrow minus a take down. BTW dashboard is broken somehow I am in the top 100.

robbo mcs: Well I had an “incident” today on the superslick off piste first thing. Just trying to traverse 100m to a groomed run, never experienced anything like it, ridiculously slick. I went down, slid down the slope accelerating, unable to self arrest until I hit a flat bit with rubbly snow. Bruises everywhere, backside so sore I can’t really sit down:oops: Probable chip fracture to my finger. I guess I’ll stick to groomers for a while:rolleyes: A fellow forum member went down in the same spot immediately afterwards, I suspect he make have a break in his hand as well:( Fast forward a couple of hours and I was going up the t-bar, only to see a ski instructor and a group of primary school aged kids attempting the same traverse. What could possibly go wrong? About 45m later they finally made it across the 100m traverse, nobody injured thank goodness. Speaking of injuries, saw the rescue chopper heading up the valley past perisher, presumably for charlottes or back country. Hopefully nothing too serous.:(
Wow hope you are ok. I thought my Whistler thumb was bad.. Never just never take you goggles off at -15. If it even is close to working leave it. It was so bad I had to hot spa!

Wow top 100 , good work. . I had my best take down in years last year. Guy boarding did a jump and landed on the back of my skis , He used my jacket collar to stand up and ripped it. He is a very lucky little camper.

SMSkier: You taking lessons with Ben? One of the most competent instructors in the country. Son of a pretty well known forumite if it’s who I think he is.
Yes Ben, he’s been my main instructor since 2014, though had a couple of others when he’s not available. He’s great, I generally book early to avoid disappointment:). Though I have enjoyed my lesson with other instructors I always ask for him first.

That sounds quite terrifying. Glad you’re ok ... conditions on Mt P can be interesting at the best of times!! Good for you that you kept going, ! Shows a lot of courage.

SMSkier: Unfortunately I witnessed both take those spills. Was only a few metres away and barely managed to avoid the same fate. No skill on my part just luck when I happened on a metre square “patch of soft snow beside a large rock”!

J_busworth: Eyre is CASH ONLY!! I would have a shock if they ever got round to getting an Eftpos machine. I was very excited to pay cash there this season after Perisher would accept neither cash nor AMEX.

Unfortunately I witnessed both take those spills. Was only a few metres away and barely managed to avoid the same fate. No skill on my part just luck when I happened on a metre square “patch of soft snow beside a large rock”! That traverse would have been as hazardous as it gets up there (inbounds). Robbo and I skied similar yesterday out off Shifty’s and it was nowhere near as treacherous. Those temps last night really hardened up the surface this morning. Parts of Mt P really did not soften at all however Sun Valley did the usual and had some skiable off piste as the sun did it’s thing. So far, 2020 (since the resort opened) is primarily the season of “ice skiing” between the snowfalls.
As an aside....... an update on who was another “victim” of the Mt P ice...... 4 fractures in the pelvis. Rehab commenced. Another 3 weeks on crutches. Upbeat, positive and looking forward to skiing next season.

I have employed the “wine glass therapy” on the hand this evening. The swelling has gone down and the bruising is nowhere as impressive as I thought it was going to be. Good luck with your busted butt! :)
