    Now that it's looking to be all over, what are the odds on a big storm and +3m in early September?

    Quick saunter in the Ramsheads

    There was a group that went up on both skis and snowshoes with a pulk settling in. I can’t imagine they’re going to have a great night’s sleep

    Quick saunter in the Ramsheads

    Yeah certainly didn’t look promising. I wasn’t overly surprised I had to pack it in having seen the forecasts yesterday. There were a couple of hardy souls still out there and didn’t look like they were going anywhere when I left. Good luck to them.

    Quick saunter in the Ramsheads

    Got in Friday morning, set up camp, had a ski. Fairly pleasant night thanks to jetboil gluhwein and solid dinner. Weather started turning pretty feral today so decided not to stick around for the second night I had planned. Disappointing, but still worth the drive.

    Worth buying bc gear just for use in Aus

    I spend about five weekends a year out of the resort, which is a lot less than 30 days. I can't imagine being able to do that if I didn't have my own touring gear. Not sure I get your question, 30 days per year of backcountry skiing is a fair bit and would def justify own gear. Hell, when I...

    What were your concerns with that Mountain Designs tent if you don't mind me asking?

    Second year in a row with no season pass for me, after quite a number of years of being a season pass holder. Somewhat sad that I'll only get to do a few day trips this year, but it does leave me with a fair bit to spend on a nice new tent and a bigger jetboil, so I'm not exactly going to miss...

    Yeah on top of COVID, the meagre coverage, lack of season pass issues etc, the lack of snowmaking last really was a gratuitous punch in the dick wasn't it.

    SnowPorn Candide Thovex - A bit of skiing

    It’s a documentary for sure, I’d go further and say it’s almost got a religious vibe to it, for somebody who skis at least anyway!

    SnowPorn Candide Thovex - A bit of skiing

    Just rewatched this for the first time in a few years. Incredible. The first 15 minutes alone are just amazing - the terrain, the lines, the soundtrack, unreal

    Between COVID and the weather, I managed to get seven days in, though three of them were not really very enjoyable and one was basically unskiable. There was one really good day I managed to get, was the Sunday in mid-Aug after the only really big dump we had. That was a great day. Everything...

    You're right, it was '95. August '95. My older brother's 22nd bday was there and we stayed at Aspect. Not sure how my parents managed to convice him to take me, I certainly wouldn't have taken my 12 yo brother on a ski trip with my mates when I was 22!

    Given the way I remember '94 turned out (first time I actually stayed in the village rather than doing day drips, as a 10 y.o kid!), hopefully a good omen for 2021.

    As of yesterday when I left it looks, feels and skis more like late September than early September for mine
