    well it hurts to say it but i may have to back out aswell.
    Won't know for sure untill tomorrow arvo but i've had a lot of stuff come up. I could probably wrestle with it and head up but with forecasts for gales, destructive winds on friday and simply crap weather I don't know if it's worth it.

    I'll let ya'll know tomorrow arvo. It'd suck to have to miss this trip!

    If the majorty of people decide to back out of this weekend, what are the chances for doing the same another weekend, even if there isn't much snow.

    Mate, when footy scheduled our presentation night for Friday I was shattered, I was so looking forward to this trip. But the weather is looking nasty for the weekend. I'm a maine range rookie but was up in July on solo and camped at garigo (spelling?) to suss things out. Had clear weather but strong to gale force winds up top and it was bad just in the resort, even in clear weather, just tough to move due to the strength of the winds and see with all the crap blowing around. Met up with some experienced NSW folk back at camp that night and they were keen to head out back the next day and happy for me to tag along, winds we're even stronger when we woke up next day and they pulled out.
