Lovely ski tour this morning up to DTH. Good touring snow but not great skiing, a bit heavy with lots of snags under a good foot of Ozzy powder. Saw several big grey kangaroos, and 3 massive deer. Sorry about all the dog shots but tend to play with him in the snow whilst i wait for Balti to catch up. Coming down nicely again now.

Gordon, Vic
Went out for a couple of runs on Wood Run and Standard. Snowed relentlessly all morning, filling in skin tracks in between laps etc and still coming down hard. Morning report of 30cm is bang on with plenty more to come. Will go over Northside this arvo.


Gotta take my hat off to you, still getting first tracks in the middle of a PANDEMIC....respect!

Northern Beaches, Sydney,
In NSW you can now visit friends at their home (two adults can visit another home). So I suggest visit some in Jindy, and then play the exercise card and head up to the mountains.
Can confirm that this is allowed. May be the go.......
Edit: So I guess the million dollar question is who wants to take one for the team.
EDIT: On topic, I observe that me feet a turning blue here in Sydney beacuse it is that cold. A welcome change tbh.....

Second part of that "Official" statement doesn't really make sense does it. ie: if you travel into a regional area and stay with yourself, this is illegal compared to traveling to see and stay with friends. Huh?
I know, I know, it's going to take time . . . . . . . . . but we are getting there slowly.

Seriously - how does it not make sense?

We are allowed to visit under caring rules. Ie for everyone sanity we are allowed to socialise.

Going on a holiday (ie paying from accom and staying on your own, even visiting your holiday property with your family_ doesn't count!!!

Well if it makes anybody feel better I got absolutely drenched. It warmed up a few degrees whilst out so by the time I descended it was raining the last few hundred meters of vert. Freez level risen here to 1200-1300ish.
Still managed to ski within 100m of the car.

Unfortunately those of us based in Vic can't travel outside our immediate neighbourhood unless for essential activities such as work. Exercise doesn't count. So no going to Jindy for us. I'm in week 8 of lockdown (after an overseas trip). Driving me nuts...

Back on topic, wonderful photos everyone! The ones of the snow gums are stunning, and the ones of the tracks make me insanely jealous.

Yep, I also observe that in some Autumns, we get a nice long fine spell well into mid May before it then turns crap.. If this keeps up we will be sick of winter by June and ready for Spring.. Assuming you aren't planning on a ski trip of course..

edit - end of next week looking o.k, so I suppose that will keep me going..
