Skiing & Boarding

A dusting of soft fresh snow on a firm base will make for some great turns today.High humidity will keep the runs soft and creamy all day.The groomers will be excellent early on. If you are looking for more of a challenge, we will have very good off-piste skiing as the soft base settles in for the season.The Groomers Choice is Shadow Ridge today. With plenty of windblown snow, you might just be able to get some powder turns.

skiflat: Hmmm
I think it just means that narelle, the manager, is hoping there will be fresh snow on it overnight and is making sure we can see how much or little.

rowdyflat: wow curate's egg I had to look that one up.
Wiki gives an example of usage. Who do you think said this, in 2015? "The copper network is undoubtedly very good in parts, very poor in parts, and probably very adequate for most of it. But it is like any linear network: it will have good bits and bad bits... It's like the Curate's egg; it's good in parts."

Good not epic skiing today , beautiful weather, cover at Falls is below average but OK including back country north facing slopes.

I scooted around the Sun Valley XC loop this morning and it was in excellent to good shape. There's some patches of grass and dirt starting to show through and some water undermining starting but nothing to send you off trail. Could live without the skidoos tearing up the set tracks though. All they have to do is drive on the other side.

Yes, one BOM forecast had cloudy and another partly cloudy. One had stiff winds for Saturday but it was calm. Hmph.

Today was a bit of a surprise, not what the forcast had me expecting. I took a chance and threw the POW board in the car and ended up ridding it all moring, summit to Gully. Maze has great cover with some great windblown stashes built up. Thigh deep in a few places that I had to boot pack out of.

What a treat today to have the sun out while the air stayed cold. The snow was everything from streaming dust to frozen corduroy. I went down Little Canada with the skis farting all the way. And especially it was a treat to be up with doing some tele runs and getting some ttips.
