Conditions

Another beaut spring day coming up. The sky is clear and the wind is a pretty strong but very warm northerly. The current temperature is already 5.4, heading for a tropical 11 degrees (our first double digits of the season). The base did not freeze overnight but there is still a bit of firmness on the surface of the groomed runs this morning. This will soften quickly and will soften even further as the day progresses. It may even be worth swapping to your fattest skis or snowboard for the afternoon session. Soft spring snow is the next best thing to powder. Enjoy. Wear Yellow! Don some yellow for the day and show your support of the Student Climate Strikers. DJ Eddy and Prysm will be setting the scene for an all in photoshoot on the Summit at midday. Come along and make your voice heard and your yellow seen. (The shoot will be at the bottom of the Summit if it is too windy at the top).

Its amazing how many good runs are at Hotham and most you cant easily see from anywhere else. Love the Dargo faces ,though you can see those.

cookieman: I also used to drop off Hangmans when a member at Bundarra in the late 80s and 90s. Were only hackers then (and still now), and only knew it as the drop off Big D.
Then you probably met my friends family. I think they helped build the place. Their son Jim did a season as club manager.

Tanuki: Definitely Hangman's then. Me and my mate who's family has a membership at Bundarra used to ride it as often as possible. Fun times.
