Ended up having another wet session today. Wombats made it to the end!! Well almost.....
main street has plenty of cover, just shows how much work goes into early season snow making. Highway was also very good for this time of year.

rowdyflat: 2022 will be good . I might even be convinced to try NTN if they have a light boot.
Oops yes I’m missing a year - thank god, not as old as I thought! ;)

rowdyflat: We have had 60 mm of rain locally , Falls maybe a bit less , if the McKay road opens McKay may be worth a ski a few days after it snows this week , need 4WD ? It is a long walk from the bottom gate in the ski area near Towers.
Sad but you’ve had a reasonable run RF in a second Bit jealous of you but with double vax, I figure next year my family, mates and I will finally get a sort of season in… (I’ll have two spare seasons in my knees and other joints?) :thumbs: :);) :ski: See you up there in 23’ (testing UltraVectors, Lynx et al…)

chriscross: Boarding in the rain? Still, lucky buggers. Mr T on electric lead guitar ?
It was the last chance we could all go together so a quick half dozen runs then back home to dry off. "Nothing but a good time" seemed to perfectly fit the clip

soza: Yesterday was one of those days you normally wouldn't bother, but as it was the last chance to head up as a family we gave it a shot. We were drenched! But saying that, main street was skiing super nice and no one, literally no one else was there. To be honest we ended up having a hoot and got to say our goodbyes to the mountain.
It was a funny old season.... 6 weeks of peak season locked down, couple of lifts never turned, events cancelled, didn't get to see old friends, school ski days cancelled and the sad emptiness of the cafes and accommodation. But in saying that, after the full cancellation of 2020 this ended up been one of the most fun that we have had. All up I managed 37 days and will probably squeeze one more in this weekend.
Nice! #soundtrack :love:

Staying on the mountain for a few nights and our first day yesterday wasn't anything too exciting. All lifts except Hayley's on wind hold so a few laps of wombats in the wet. Today was totally different. Towers and Scotts chairs as per the norm but with fresh snow falling throughout the day that whole side of the mountain was a pow hunting playground. Sad to see the place so empty. Business are doing it hard but as normal service, food quality and the friendliness can't be faulted. Regional Victorians certainly seem put off with the covid swabs or number of lifts turning. The swabs are a pain....I've probably had a dozen so far but if staying on the mountain you only need the one to get up. Plenty of accommodation all offering crazy deals and the two lifts give plenty of options if you stretch your legs a bit. If you've been to NZ you know you don't need loads of lifts for lots of fun. Here's what you missed today and by all accounts tomorrow is going to be even better

Ventured out to rocky Knolls today. First time this season and left it a bit late as cover is a bit patchy with creeks forming at the bottom. Snow was like glue in places but it was still nice to get out beyond the resort boundary.

Snowy Joey: Snap. Helps remind me that the snow is still out there waiting for us, if not this year. Hopefully next year is not like the last two. Glad our new local netball court is getting some use. Not sure if it's even had a proper game held there yet thanks to covid.
I rollerblade at the old netball courts in Emerald at the footy oval which is also frequented by the skateboarders. Down at the Cockatoo Rec Reserve I join the primary kids on their bikes. I have to be careful so I don’t cause accidents, so generally only go there when the weather is unattractive. I’ve given the Emerald High School parking lot near Avonsleigh a flogging, and only used the new netball courts at Emerald once before I noticed rollerblading was verboten. So no more. Difficult to find enough flat ground up here in the hills to blade on - Monbulk Rec reserve parking lot has the nicest local surface, but out of my 5km range. Trust me to live off Paternoster Road where the slope incline is at 30 degrees and my local roads are gravel and steep… Of course Eastern Freeway bike path gives one kilometres and kilometres of fast smooth surface, and my surface of choice is the Carribean Gardens Rollerama - only 30 minutes away when it’s open. Now that’s its drier it’s time to hit Wright Forest and the C.J Chambers reserve on the mountain bike. No fitness, bugger! The highlight of my rollerblading career, initiated during last year’s lockdown has been twofold - speedskating training with a club at the Rollerama, and skating between Germantown and Bright on the nice smooth bicycle path. Awesome to read ’s rolling adventures on the Park thread! Can recommend! It’s not snow, but at least it’s something! All this will pass soon. And we’ll be back at the snow. I’m very grateful - I got 11 days this year, including 2 inbounds trips to Falls, one to Perisher, a short back country trip out of Guthega, and another day trip out of Falls to Nelse and back and a little amble out to McKay. And then there’s all the new gear from 2 years of careful saving and online bargains to properly baptise! The best part of the year was seeing my 14 year old son straightlining Scottys on his new race skis. He now tells me that raw speed in and of itself doesn’t cut it - moguls are where it’s at! In 2019 I managed to ski on Nelse in November. 2021 - who knows…. Walking up onto the Bogong High Plains in falling snow via Paling Spur in January and waking up to a snow-covered landscape outside Youngs Hut after a cold overnight suggests one never knows what the High Country holds.

Chaeron: Seeing anyone on at Falls does good things for my mental health. I reminisced about throwing carve turns at speed down Scottys while rollerblading round the local netball court with the local primary school kids this afternoon. Get down low, ignore your quads screaming at you, use your weight to initiate a turn, ignore the stones on the crumbling tarmac and the 10 year old on their bike about to cut you off….. I’m alive and someone, somewhere is out there on the snow….. And surely there is something beyond this lockdown…
