Conditions

The only thing that wasnt quite right about this year was that my days off did not really align with the best of the powder days. Apart from that, I reckon it was as good a season as I have seen over the past 30 years. It started with a bang in June, there were a heap of epic powder days during the winter months, and spring has been as good as they come with day after day of perfect weather. We had lots of super smooth groomers and plenty of deep days off piste, there was hardly any rain, and the decision makers extended so we could milk it until the end. I hope you scored your share of the best of it. Next year? While chatting to my wise old mate Tim on the lift yesterday, I floated the idea of having another great season to make it three beauties in a row. He very wisely replied, why not? We have both seen three rippers in a row before, so it might be time for another trifecta. Lets see, but whatever happens I am sure it will be a blast. Thanks for following my morning waffle (apologies for some late, wayward or too cryptic reports) and I look forward to passing on the good news again next winter. Oh yeah, today. It is clear with hardly a breath of wind this morning. The snow has had a very solid freeze overnight (the temp stayed well above zero all night so it must have something to do with the start of daylight saving??). It is rock hard now but will soften very nicely for awesome spring snow turns to finish off this awesome season. Hooroo for now! I am off to take in some Vitaman D and B. (Thanks for the special cans of B Glenn) Dont forget. Pay your $99 deposit by midnight on Monday to secure your 2019 Hero Pass before the price increase.

First snow of the new year (old snow of the last year), wasn’t quite enough for any turns...

The only curse would be if this place ceased to exist, it's amazing anytime of year in any conditions.

Let's hope I haven't placed an early curse on the season by buying season lift and parking passes for the first time in 5 years. LOL
