    I've never seen such large crowds at interceptor or north P like today.
    We got a few laps of freshies there before the hordes arrived, then moved to ridge for 1 lap before they arrived there, then over to guthega to ski out the arvo in boot deep goodness and straight on every lift.

    It snowed all day @ Perisher - managed to avoid crowds - wishing I had fat skis on Mt P as drifts were rediculous. Visibility good amongst trees - crap elsewhere, even on Font Valley. Great accumulation almost to bottom of ski tube @ Bullocks Flat - snow level about 1200 metres IMO for this event.

    I was skiing with my daughters. Apparently taking a pee after every run is a part of the rules.

    ? No ACT public holiday today. Wondered about NSW though. Suspect absenteeism rates for today might be a little above average ...

    Yeah, typical of Huey to snow all day and stop just after the last lift ;) Should be good tomorrow over the other side of Hotham in the areas that didn't open today.
