Equus: So In All it's Been a FAB Season re Snow Yay or Nay? Thanks
I think it had been a fantastic season! A slow start but surely picked up. Mr EB and I spent more weekends there this year than the past 2/3 years (each year). LM is an easy 1.5hrs drive for us and hopefully, the global warming won't be too fast to destroy the winter season. We enjoyed the conversation with fellow skiers at LM. Always happy and smiley on sunny days. :) See you all in 2018!

Free resort entry this weekend. I suspect this will be the last weekend for 2017.

LM reduced the gate entry to $30 yesterday, but skiing only to be had on the upper trails. This morning however, I've noticed that they have the fan guns operating on the main toboggan run, so it seems the season is not quite over yet.

Returning customers today without exception were very happy. Skiers had to walk to Helicopter Flat but then skied on good quality snow in t-shirts. Snow players likewise reported the toboggan runs were still good particularly Koala Creek. So, if you're still humming and haa-ing get up there before it all melts! And Mystic Mountains Ski Hire in Narbethong is open every day until the end of the season.

It has been a good but late starting season. It has got me onto XC skis and away from plodding on snow shoes so expect at least 5 LM trips next year from me in 2018 . :-). I am off to scout out the sneaky way up to the Boundary hut ruins from Keppel's hut next month. I have been up that way before but not coming in from Buxton and the Mt. Margaret road. Forum Member has alluded to this cost saving measure.

teckel: Yes, I would say so. The first half of the season was poor; the second half was great. So averaging it out, it was a pretty good season - the best I've had in 13 years. :D I'm exhausted and have come down with the lurgey :(
That's That You Are Now Un-Well...

teckel: Apparently from the Goons: http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-dre1.htm
Thanks, but doesn't really clarify the derivation. My young workmate was quite sure that Lurgy (the company) was the basis of this "dreaded Lurgy" thing. I think I've got it now! (spoken in a John Mellion accent)!

weerab: The dreaded Lurgi! Do you realise that it was a German manufacturing company? I used to work with a young guy whose German born father worked for Lurgi as an engineer. Can't remember the connection between the company and the dreaded ******.

Ubiquitous Steve: No on second thought using Teckel as an expert witness may cause friction between her and the Resort and damage her commmercial future. Yes u must plan this with stealth .....rope in Xplora as expert witness. But that might backfire if he appears to know more than the judge!! Team Bears are pleased that Mr T is turning from the dark side and embracing the long boards.Perhaps it won't be long before he comes flying down to Tawonga Huts waving his arms a troublesome snow shoe:mad: persons that have encroached his line!!:thumbs: Good work .....this is a pleasing story....
I have embraced . The Force is strong inside me. Next season my snow shoes won't get as much use. Better to start late than never. I have bumped into Ubi . Steve twice in my peregrinations and have not seen him on skis yet. Blundstones/ elastic sided work boots are not quite the same as skis.

Oh I forgot telephone legs from the ambulance to cover all areas that maybe required in future court action.

Hey! Leave me out of it!!! :eek: (I know you're kidding and the reference to the other thread)

Duty of care perhaps. Throw a dive...stay down till ski patrol comes. Always time to sue somebody or something . Then settle out of court perhaps and built holiday house in Marysville. Make sure you have go pro footage and stills to substantiate your case. Get reputable witness to substantiate the track quality ... Go for gold!! Possibly give Teckel a few grand for appearing as an expert witness to the track debarkle.

EquatorBunny: We went up (AGAIN!!) yesterday. Front row parking spot, arrived with other skiers too. It was fantastic. No wind, warm in the sun but icy and fast. We had to walk up about 50m before we could skate up the trail. Approx in front of the groomer's shed. A few patchy spots here and there but I was happy that I could skate the whole of Woolybutt trail and Mr EB went off to skate Jubilee. At about 9.30-10am a lot of other skiers started to come through. Mostly on classical. We mucked around the Heli Flat at this stage. The only annoying bit was the trails. Deep grooves, bumpy churned up snow. It'll be nice if it's corduroy perfect. Stacked hard a couple of times but it was definitely a good day to ski. I took the good along with the bad.... Around 11am the snow started to soften a little and on the brink of a slushy arvo. We went back at about 11.30am. Yesterday will probably be our last day on the XC ski. Unless there is another snow on the weekend!!! LOLLOLLOL
While I was skiing at Lake Mtn. yesterday , I too found that the trails had not been groomed since the weekend rush of people. There were ruts and grooves that were potentially hazardous.Once the surface softened a bit one could plough over/ ski through them on slightly downhill curves but other patches where it was shady and icy preserved these indentations, ruts , lumps and so forth in the skiing surface .

Another 4-5 cm overnight. This September just keeps on keeping on :D

teckel: I only do the cheaper lessons when in conjunction with hiring skis from me. If people rock up just wanting lessons only, I charge the same as the mountain. Sorry I missed you on your return - I had to go Healesville to organise my passport.
OK, Understood. Don't worry, The skis and boots that I hired today were fine. They worked great. I am not hiring gear from anywhere else if I am skiing( and falling over ;-P ) at Lake Mtn. If it snows really properly on Tuesday 26/9/17 then I will look at having one more day trip on skis somewhere .
