Nice day today . Lazy powers that be havent cleared the road much towards Ruin castle= Gate down that way. Snuck thru gap next to the silly gate around the bottom of the lifts. Couple of runs on McKay plenty of cover. Pretty good a few suncups.

I onlly skied Falls, especially because I use my Falls resort pass to access the back-country - got in 10 days so far this year. However, ending up in Hotham after doing a Falls-Hotham day crossing reminded me of how much fantastic terrain - lifted & unlifted Hotham has. Iíve got 2 boys- 10 & 15 who are now happily self-sufficient across the whole mountain, so while the greater volume of accesible terrain initially kept me at Falls, Iím now more likely to ski Hotham equally. See you out there .

Chaeron: Obviously that day trip on Saturday was worth it! I got 15 downhill days on my pass this year, so definitely got ahead.
My last 4 years had been Perisher so it was nice to come back to Vic this season, albeit only 5 days on snow. Looking forward now to maximising the pass between Hoth/Falls. I figure 8 days will break me even but hope to get in many more. Might get to cross paths.

Had a great last day of downhill with the almost 16 yr old boy at Falls on Saturday- first time Iíve consistently had him wait for the Ďold maní at the lifts. Got to lift those pre-season fitness levels, Actually, itís just that he's got to be bloody good. Skied most of the mountain - even managed to pop over the Rocky Knolls to look for a Hestra glove I dropped on the way back from the Tawonga huts - no luck! Just paid the deposit on the 2018 Hero Pass - even though I want to see more of Nelse and also ski the Fainters and Bogong next year. Ripper resort season. More BC to come this seaon.

You'd have to be in the green (ANP) to be out of the resort. Dozen madder :D

What a great day to finish the lifted season. Arrived at around 230am yesterday and straight to bed. Up for around first lifts. Straight over to summit where attempted to go to international but a somewhat freeze overnight made it unpleasant. Over to a groomed Scott's and towers which was fun and completely ours for a few hours. Lunch and then spent the afternoon at various lifts around summit. A lot of fun with heaps of natural features. Dropped into the maze quickly, heaps of snow in the upper area, just as long as you take yeti out as any lower was impassable. As for snow, I can't believe how much there is. I tried to dig to ground in areas around summit and couldn't manage. Was quite sticky however, I rode the entire day on my bag leg.

Mtbiking is taking off at Falls. They finally pulled their finger out and the result is great . Nice rocky, flowy stuff ideal for shuttling . Its not skiing but its way cheaper= free.

Rick Ross Da Boss: Anyone been out too makay today/yesterday? Looking to go sat, fingers crossed for the forecasted freeze Friday night :)
I skied out to McKay on Tuesday and the cover is still fantastic. Only a few rocks showing on main face but otherwise heaps of snow . Skied back on lower track to Falls and there was complete cover, normally very patchy in September.
5/10/17 - 8:22pm
Rick Ross Da Boss: Haha! Good point. Just wondering how the cover is holding up out there and for the skin home.... Cheers
Shitloads of snow..... we (me and my 8yo) skinned home in the rain but plenty of snow for down and up. Cover is thick and low.
