    No, GuthegaI I think, from the description.

    Does look a bit like Wendix. A bit wider though and trees either side not as dense

    True, it was the off fall line that had me thinking it was Hotham. I'd love to ride that line where ever it is

    Creek seems to have stopped flowing, could it be the piles of snow?

    Pretty special day on Perisher, covered so much terrain from Mt P all the way to Ridge before 1pm.

    First tracks Leichardt and Mt P before it was tracked out and the vis lowered were sweet as well as some stupidly good and empty Rock Garden drops.

    Ridge really emptied out before it was put on hold, with windblow filling in our tracks on every lap.

    Stoked! Beat Normo up as well I think :p

    Looking like a good ring-out of moisture as it hits Western Vic. Nothing like the last few evenings IMO.

    The best chance will come from some localised instability early tomorrow AM.

    Thredbo has gotta be looking good up high now at least, this sort of wind makes for some great skiing up there, even if its not as much vertical as the full mountain.
