Mr Sheen worked a treat.
Basic clear candle wax
silicon spray also good for preventing balling, usually a problem with dry snow.
I observe an overflowing carpark at Perisher again. When will they stop coming?????
Saturday, fresh snow during the week, school holidays and a sunny day.
Don't need to be Nostradamus to predict it's going to be busy.
Lots of locals with more time off sneaking in a few extra days as well......
Also PSR weekend.
having a quiet one at chill bar hotham...still pretty good snow,especially at HV but not many people around.
It's September. Beach time people!
Mind you, the only queues we saw all day were Happy and FV carpet. Snow had dried and softened overnight and was quite nice up high. Found some really nice off piste in some places. Sticky as glue down low.
Heaps of Clouds. No Precipitation.
Snowing moderately from bottom or sun Valley t all the way up, was light drizzle in front valley but feels colder now
Did get firmer at the end of the day, was some quite nice skiing
Snow/sleet mix at Blue Cow (Perisher). Settling on the grass.
Some periods of serious rain mixed in a longer period of lighter rain since 4.15 am near Tumbarumba. 27.3 mm in the rainbucket so far.
Rain in Perisher FV. I'm out for now.
Ok wet snow in Perisher base now. Better head out. Positive outcome for 1700m and above I think.
Was puking snow on Eyre, really nice, though low visibility. Tomorrow will be nice, pity about work.
Chucking down now on Guthega cam
Creek at the head of my property has just broken its banks , again I might add, low level flooding happening.
Seperate news about this recent weather , its sporned a new evolutionary sub breed amongst some of my lambs. Dulafi are being seen in the area. Dulafi - lambs with webbed feet and gills
Thredbo was snowing from top Gunbarrel today. Relatively heavy but wet none the less.
Wet snow at Karels and similar across the t-bar level at Thredbo this morning...
Yeah we were at the Banked Slalom, big flakes (real snowflakes) but still a bit damp. If Thredbo are lucky this could be a season starter for them hehehe
Was at Falls Creek for the weekend.
Saturday started cloudy. Then cloudy on and off. Cleared up pretty nicely as the day wore on.
Sunday morning I woke to heavy rain on the tin roof twice (just after midnight and again around 3.30 am). Both were short spells though.
Packed up the car and headed to Halley's Comet chair around 9.45 am. Light showers.
By 10 it was raining and still raining when we left for home at around 11.45 am.
It was around 5 degrees so it wasn't going to change to snow that's for sure.
Your kids competed? How was it? Course looked really tight.
Stay on topic.
I observed the snow quality was good, although sticky on the way back to FV.
Not sure if it was the weather conditions or the tightness of the course, but a number of adults pulled out after practice (guys and girls). Those who skied/boarded it enjoyed a very tight course but the temp and moisture was conducent to the snow responding well to the salt, and the course (snow quality) held up well.
Great fun and props to Ali and race dept for a good job (again)
As close to on topic as I could make it
