Yep, it is pretty much perfect yet again and it will be another day of really good spring snow conditions. There sky is clear and there is hardly a breeze in the village, the temperature is just above zero, heading for a top of 5 degrees. The snow has had another good solid freeze overnight and will be firm first thing but will soften pretty quickly on sunny aspects. Enjoy.

Returned from Bogong High Plains on Sunday, drove over Hotham. Snake, Imagine and a gully or two in Dargo Bowl are all holding up well. Nordic Bowl at Falls had cover on some loops, but I was unsure of depth and quality so left the skis in the bag.

Great effort. Alas, at the same time last year, the cover was continuous right down to the HV lift load and beyond - to village chair.

Sun 20th Oct, Snake Gully, Imagine, Race Gully, Gunbarrel, Slalom Gully, Peach Bowl were all skiable with only small unskiable sections or gaps on Slalom, Race and Gunbarrel. Peach stopped abruptly at the rocks in mid-Canyon. Snow was sticky with the pink dust and recent snow. Morning view camped out off Dargo rd

Bogong moths in plague proportions at Hotham on the weekend. This is the time, no shortage of the big buggers.

Ramshead: Hello. NSW skier here stalking the VIC threads. Congrats on the most evocative verbal image of the year. Pure poetry. Outstanding. Bogongs I take it. Heard their numbers have been dropping lately BTW
Definitely Bogongs. Big buggers and plenty of them. Interesting trip home trying to usher them out of the car as they randomly and wildly made their presence known.

Portable snow guns back out for 2020 and chairs will be pulled off by days end - season finished only yesterday. Seems the lift has a reverse gear to do this. #gettinshitdone
