Conditions

We have a clear sky above and a sea of clouds in the distant valleys. The temperature is 1.5 and there is just a light northerly breeze which is meant to swing to the south during the afternoon. The snow has had a good freeze overnight and is pretty slick right now but will soften quickly for another day of great spring turns. Slap on the screen and follow the sun. Enjoy.

Best of all worlds this weekend. Friday - super slushy, but almost corny in less traveled places chute, Lindsay's etc. Saturday snowed on and off, sometime a mix, sometimes snow. Good fun in retro gear. Today - orchard was great, a few faceshots from the bigger stashes. Then into womens down hill ish which I had to myself and was great.

Ramshead: Hey Hothamites, this Sydney skier is thinking of taking the kids to Hotham in the extended week, first week of Oct. Or Perisher. Perisher is obviously closer and will have most of its best terrain open. Will Hotham? I know much rain could fall before then and so on, but given average luck and even half the current 2m base, will Heavenly be open? I donít expect Gotcha and/or Orchard but we ainít comin all that way for just Road Runner and Summit. Thoughts? Past experiences in extended weeks? Thanks!
Summit, Road Runner and Heavenly would most likely be the only lifts guanteed to be open. I haven't been up in a few weeks so Id be keen here from someone who is up atm on how the snow is holding up

N0frilz: Why did hv spot today?
I assume mechanical. Must have been at least an hour too. I did see a guy doing/changing something on the electrical box where the alarms are, at the load area.
