Snowfall (24hrs) 0 cm
Snow Depth (Natural) 39 cm
Today's Weather: Max 3°c

Conditions

It is another drizzly morning but the wind is very light and the snow will be really fun. The temperature is 3.8 and there is just a puff of a northeasterly breeze. Sadly we lost Heavenly Valley yesterday but the Summit Quad, Road Runner and Audi Quattro are scheduled for this morning. The snow will be skiing really well on the groomed runs first thing this morning, and I don$apos;t expect that the lift queues will be too long, so wear something waterproof and get out there for a few invigorating laps while you can. Enjoy.

I think we've finally joined the awesome Australian Backcountry Patch Skiing club. "Only" had to take the skis off 3 times to make it down, and bootpacked through mud for only 30mins on the way back up.

Australiaís flattest resort-top? More so than Falls - which has a pronounced dip between Summit and Eagle/Halleys. :cool: :thumbs:

The wind ruined the snow falling last night, made for disappointing freshies inbounds today. So headed to some closed resort areas instead. I secretly wanted to poach 's Mary's Slide stash before he got to ski it, but it looked wind scoured and ruined from above, and reports from people later claim that it wasn't worth the effort. Instead I went further out and 4 laps of the Orchard area, plus 1 tree hill on the way back, then a few laps of Lindsays as the snow softened. I had hoped my turns would be visible from the resort, but the wind and occasional snow flurry meant each lap was buried before I even got to the top for my next run.
On the way home I noticed some noob had side slipped the whole of hackers horror ... snowboarders man. Why'd he even bother ducking the rope.

Hermannator: Dedicated.
Good snow quality this late in the season, gotta make the most of it. My kind of day - snow was primo in the late arvo In retrospect booting out up the ridge would probs have been easier Couple of narrow gully chute-lite lines between marys and the chute look nicely topped up

hongomania: Top 80% of marys skiing superbly. Nice fresh on top of a rain smoothed base refrozen nicely. Worth the horrendous and sketchy boot down the lower 20% and along the creek back to HV Shame HV closed at 315 due to lightning

dr80: Quick trip y'day. Cracking day Pretty good cover still and although grooming a bit limited, the snow was skiing nicely after a re-freeze. Patchy down low off-piste, but still very good in groomed / snow making areas. Definitely worth the drive and Covid test
Good one - Iíve seen a lot worse in mid September. :thumbs: :cool:

Any: Not sure where this "5cm" was today. The marketing department rounded up a little I think. It was 0.25cm outside our window at the back of our buidling (in central hotham), 1.5cm out the front of our building, and this morning there was spots with 2cm of snow, but it was completely unbonded to a rock solid ice layer underneath. you couldn't tell if you were hitting rocks or ice. eek. It was nice to see any snow at all tho, so I'll take it. I came back out this afternoon at 3, and it was nice and soft and slushy in the sunny parts. Even patrollers drop had some fresh left on it ... until 4 dudes side slipped it side by side. I don't often close out a mountain. Its quite frustrating how early they close things. They were telling people last chair and ski patrol had roped things off 45mins before the lift is supposed to close. Is it always like that?
probably more down towards DP, ( not much more , but more) Had a flurry round Cobungra on the way up this morning.
