Mister Tee on XC Skis
17/6/21 - 8:25pm
EquatorBunny: Sounds like it's no go for this weekend for LM then? Not enough snow... Covid restrictions... pre-book tickets... road closed/tree debris... :cry: Any tea leave readers who can share their views?
Falls and Hotham as well as Perisher all have fair to poor to marginal XC ski conditions at present according to their XC ski trail reports online. We are still in June. The big snow fall that will set up the higher XC ski locations has yet to arrive. I suspect it may come at the end of this month. https://www.ski.com.au/xf/threads/16-21st-june-system.89789/page-2#post-4712477">Link However my friend in Myrtleford did XC ski from Windy Corner to Mt. Mckay and back on the weekend and she said it was thin and wet snow cover but not too bad up near the Ruined castle area. LM last had good cover for XC skiing on June 9th 2021 while were all locked down tight. I will have get a CV 19 test soon for my trip up to the Ovens valley for skiing , which is set for July 2-7th. So LM is a no go for XC skiing this weekend and the snow forecast and overall surrounding circumstances that make a visit up there easy will not improve by this Sunday. I am cycling and swimming a lot to build up my XC ski fitness. It is not the same as XC skiing but it is something.

Kids love BBQ,s .....Park at Buxton requires no covid test or fee!Kids can examine the huge redwoods at Fernshaw and check out Teckels shop on the way!But better watch for those patriots running around the forest in Cathedral Ranges!

The road from Healesville to Narbethong may be open as early as Friday, but I feel that may be a little optimistic. It the meantime,they'll have to go via Yea and Alexandra to get to the mountain. Melbourne people going up this weekend should also be aware they need a negative covid test less than 3 days before going for all members of the party over the age of 2.

We will be over the Great Divide as soon as the noddys allow us! Brett Sutton says you are 20xs less likely to catch covid in the open.:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

I am so over this pandemic. Lost the whole of last winter, and also this winter so far. Compounded by the closure of the Black Spur because of the storm. It's still closed. They're talking continued closure until Friday. :( It means there is zero passing traffic by my shop. Not even regional traffic from the peninsula or Geelong. It's just not bloody fair. Could have a game of cricket on the Maroondah Hwy, and only have to move the stumps a couple of times a day to let trucks through that are carrying tree debris.

Observing the snow in the afternoon is ......Verbotten by order of the Regime Commander! Heil the Chief Health Officer! :whistle: ;);) All patrons without the online booking paperwork will be redirected to the Igloo Buxton for reeducation purposes . Then released to Mt Margaret for further field indoctrination.

So, the resort is now officially open. Limited to regional visitors (no one from metro permitted at this stage). Maximum of 250 cars per day which must be booked online in advance. Cannot get up there after 2 pm on the day.

teckel: It's one way of keeping Melbourne people away. Closing the Spur. In the meantime, their estimated time to restore power to Narby is Sunday afternoon. A long time to go without flushing the toilet, having a shower, having any heating, or lighting, or even getting the shop ready for the ski season
Install wood stove like Hammi!

chriscross: Careful. That might have been the day someone was killed in their car by a falling tree. I was stopped by police at Fernshaw. Husband and child were still in the car. The police looked shaken, a difficult day on the job. I turned back and took my o/s guests to the sanctuary and Healesville Hotel. Made something of the day.
No. That was a different day. I know what you are talking about and it was certainly not that day when that rather unfortunate accident with the falling tree took place. It was possibly a week or two later.

Ubiquitous Steve: Teckel may get stuck at one end or the other!
My friend and I had to detour back via the road that connects Yea and Bonnie Doon to get back to Melbourne via Whittlesea from a big day of XC skiing in August at LM in 2019. The Black Spur road/Maroondah Highway was blocked by a nuff nuff who 'd lost control of their car on that road .The traffic jam was very long . It was icy and snowing to low levels that day.

snowgum: Screwed from the start really - time to start again, T? Itís only QB - almost.
We were not allowed to ski on it yesterday morning so if us Melbourne people and rusted on LM XC ski types are not allowed out to enjoy skiing on the fresh snow at LM then the head curmudgeon says no one will be permitted the chance to enjoy it. ;-P

yeah, I just run cables to the stuff I need. It is good insurance for me, lost time without power makes it worth it. Altough I did have to replace the carburetor recently. I guess it is over 20 year old now, so $20 for a repair okay.

teckel: Power back on :woohoo:
Little generators are cheap. Getting a decent one and getting it wired in, not so cheap, especially when you can't make any money in winter because of covid lockdowns.
