Thredbo Snow Report Open

1:45pm - 18 Jul 2019       
Lifts Open 13 of 14
Snowfall (Last 24hrs) 7 cm
Weather: Snow shower or two. Forecast Max -1°c

The snow was in a great condition today, with a solid base built up from our recent snowfalls. We had another 5-10 cm of snow overnight, which freshened up the slopes and gave riders a nice smooth cruise down the mountain today. The snow machines were also pumping throughout the early morning which added an extra layer to the slopes. The winds were moderate up high today, which did cause some wind blown stashes. The best wind-blown stashes were found up high, and skiers and snowboarders had lots of fun in the powder on the off-piste runs. Check the webcams.

This morning was exquisite on the groomers. Felt sorry for those who rode high noon and sundowner late- there were large moguls coming into the back of the Gunbarrel- the texture and almost the colour of sand, otherwise just ice. Cannonball and Waimea were very impressive. A really good day out other than some ice.

I'm heading back down Sunday night for a couple of days. Been frothing over the pics this last week but kids at home to keep busy and Thredbo lift lines in general to avoid.

Time for some great Waimea. I think I managed 100% more turns down it than usual. It was so enjoyable that I chose to do it for my last run of the day instead of some great wind blown off Antonís. Another highlight was Ego Alley off a high traverse from the Village Trail off the top of the Basin.

Its always hard to say, such a day to day, even hour to hour, thing skiing here really. Interschools have been using SnowGums, Kosi, Gunbarrell, and Cruiser. Tbars have been pretty good line wise, but so have those chairs at certain times to. The worst line you ever encounter at Thredbo, looks empty compared to Ridge chair at Bluecow, so that a plus! I get in Sat night at this stage

AJS: Heís dropping gear Crackenback side so thatís also why I thought it best to save Gunbarrel / Merrittís side until later in the day..
What lifts are all the Interschools using?

AJS: What time do you get in Sun? Iím sadly on a bus out at 1pm, but will try to catch up with Muzz and M on Sat for some laps. Maybe a cheeky beverage or two at one of the fine on mountain establishments too.. My brother (never been to Thredbo) is getting in about 3hrs earlier than I am tomorrow morning, so Iím sending him some suggestions on where itís best to ski before I show him around. Heís a bit rusty so has asked for blues and blacks so I was thinking about keeping it easy and telling him to lap Kosci / ST and he can do Little Beauty, / Bushranger etc for some interest until I get up there at 1pm (half day ticket) - but having not seen the conditions etc yet this season- do you guys think thatís the best bet?

telecrag: Might catch you, will hook up with Muzza to ski Sunday. Looks like a strong NW, could be OK.

Townsend: We have been away for the village to escape school holidays. Your photos have made me very jealous and so it is time for you to go back to Work! See you next week.
Its an experience, lucky the weather came to the party. Usual big lines, lots of ignorance, though its the self entitled ignoramus ones that are most annoying. Still, the majority are having a good time, and thats what its all about. Having to put chains on, for a clear road, was a bit painful. I wondered if they just did it for ambience? One of the lift supervisors had a nasty fall this morning on ice. Wayne leaped into action, I stand by my opinion that he is a top bloke. Hope she is OK.

Two more sleeps for me. Introducing my Vicco brother to Thredbo for his first ever NSW snow experience so Iím super excited to share the stoke. Heís a Hotham regular, so he should go alright. Probably better than I will, being pretty unfit this season. Donít worry heíll keep our secrets and tell all his Mexican friends that Perisherís better...

telecrag: I reckon tomorrow will be quite nice. Wish I didn't have to come home. Today was hard won turns mostly. Lots of wind compaction, and scouring. Did start blowing some silky threads before we pulled the pin.

Quick stop-off at Black Sallees was definitely worth it. From snowgums, had to go down the village trail. After 1pm, the supertrail was sheet ice.

And now snowing in the village.
