chriscross: Not a ning nong if a tree squashes your car and kills your wife. Just damned bad luck. LM was excellent on Wednesday.
I was referring to the subsequent accident on Saturday 10/8/19 on the Black Spur which caused us to have to return to Melb. via Yea and Whittlesea, which was as far as I know was caused by driver error. The accident involving the tree crashing onto blameless humans in a car on Friday 9/8/19 was dreadful and no one was at fault there .Indeed nobody was or is accusing those unfortunate people of being anything but very , very unlucky . I apologize if I seemed insensitive or seemed to be mocking anyone in that regard. The Black Spur and the overall approach to Lake Mtn. from Melb. is perilous for inexperienced city based drivers. Lake Mtn. is very skiable at present so get up there and ski it and drive safely.

GChen: Gonna heading to Lake Mountain tomorrow morning. Is Lake Mountain open? Is the road from Melbourne to Lake Mountain all good now?
The snow ball throwing resort should be open and the road from Marysville should be open. Look at the LM resort website and the LM resort FB page plus the VICROADS website for details.. It has rained up there so the snow cover for skiing is not as good as it was few days ago . i.e. last Saturday . Can one predict if another Ning Nong will have a car accident on the Black Spur? .Your guess is as good as mine about that.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: It is often better to wait until 10 or 11 am to tackle some runs/terrain once it has softened a bit.
Me, I used to like to get there at 8 am on days like that! :cool:

Simon11: Yeah just a bit ;) :whistle: in the morning it was rock hard ice and super fast It got chopped up a little by midday which slowed it down a little but still good. All-in-all a great day of skiing.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Thanks for the photos. How was Royston Trail to ski on , going down the hill? Did you have to cook off some speed?

Simon11: Trails today are icy, fast and consolidated. Windy all over the mountain, even up at panorama. Bring sunglasses. If you see me, say hello :D:skier::emoji_sun_with_face::emoji_call_me:

Some skiers (including some of my customers) skiing on the main toboggan run yesterday morning. Because the resort could not be accessed, the few skiers who camped there overnight had the resort to themselves. And they made the most of it!!! :D :thumbs:

I'm back on board. My internet access died on Saturday night necessitating a trip to a Telstra shop today. :( I'm now back. (I did manage a couple of posts in the meantime using my phone, but I hate doing that)

Snowplowqueen: Doesnít look like Iím going to get out :-/ lovely drive and breakfast in Healesville though
Take the Melba Hwy and ski at Mt. Stirling. The whole Mtn. is rated as excellent there and the skiing starts from TBJ ( car park).

Canbat: Snow sticking to my glide zones is usually the least of my problems. And it's been a while since I've used kick wax, only klister. I might have an old tin of glide wax around.
Use the easy applicator SWIX GLIDE WAX. should have some in her shop. I always keep SWIX GLIDE WAX, FISCHER PB de Icer, an emergency Bivvy bag and other goodies in my day pack.
