weerab: I bought a pair of OR Revel over mittens today. They are very light but fantastically designed. I must admit i was considering dishwashing gloves!
I also bought some super duper expensive storm proof over mittens which are meant to be waterproof even while or some such load of old bollocks.

weerab: I was up there on Tuesday with fellow forumite Chriscross. The snow was slightly rain affected but we had cover from top to bottom. No other skiers on the mountain. The place was deserted except for ski patrol and a couple of others. We were expecting rain but luckily just had a few minutes worth while we were having lunch in the King Spur hut. We skied to King saddle and up the main Stirling trail stopping at King saddle shelter for a break, lunch at King Spur hut, a break at GGS and then a cup of tea at Bluff spur hut after skiing over the summit in clear weather! Mt Stirling is blessed with a good hut system. If it had rained as forecast they are a great place to dry out and have a cup of tea. Took some phone photos but not worth posting. We skied Buller on Wednesday, that was a different story! Vis was crap and it started to rain and my good (insert good UK brand) gloves were a soggy mess in 10 minutes as were the merino liners!
I find when it is really raining hard that only rubber dishwashing gloves are of much use out there in the snow.

Was up there last Sunday 10th Sep. Beautiful clear day. A really good day, met some nice people skiing around the summit. An eclectic mix of old hands, youngsters and some young ladies having fun and owning the mountain.

Mister Tee on snow shoes: You'd have to have a good set of knees and nerves to ski down the River spur. A day on snow shoes of ascending and descending a total circuit of 12km with a day pack is easily within my range of fitness.

GS: That's a long way to walk....it'd be much quicker and easier on skis LOL

Mister Tee on snow shoes: The Circuit road looked amazing from the River spur trail head back to TBJ. Even I could have had a go at skiiing that !That was excellent.

I went up yesterday, 22/8/17 . It was the best I have seen it since 2015.Sunny with deep dry fresh snow cover down to chain bay 2 !!. A full trip report is coming soon with photos. The Bluff spur trail and summit were superb. I snow shoed down the River spur. The Circuit road looked amazing from the River spur trail head back to TBJ. Even I could have had a go at skiiing that !That was excellent.

GS: There were plenty of snow shoe plodders out and about over the weekend, including SAR training exercise Sat night.
I decided to head up on Sunday and was amazed at the conditions. Perfect! I gave the skis a rest and donned the snowshoes for a change of pace.

Mt Stirling deserves a few more pics from the weekend just gone. It's not the biggest hill around but on it's day can be a whole lot of fun and high enough to give an alpine feel. Skied part way up Friday night in the lightest, freshest snow I've seen down this low for quite awhile. Truly magical skiing by torch light in these conditions.
Breaking trail on Sat morning tough work for out of condition legs, where's the groomer I paid for? LOL
Love the ice encrusted snowgums
Clearing to a great Saturday, plenty of the white stuff above GGS Hut
It wasn't the best snow I've encountered in Stanley Bowl, but still, it was very, very nice....and enjoyed by tele, alpine and boarders alike. And that view, never tire of it.
Cracking sunset before a chilly night
How good was Sunday? Spectacular day to be in the mountains.
Great weekend, very few people considering the conditions, thanks Mt Stirling.

There looks like a wind driven cornice on top of Mt Magdala.
