    Well that system sucked just a bit to much easterly.. !. I think we will get some snow from a nice litte system on saturday night - sunday . and next week from about thursday looks like we could get a very nice front and low come through over several days that may get us operating again..But with very little base it will have to chuck down a good 25-30cm.. Other then that if these systems dont provide it could be pack up time.!.... Remember the last 2 crap seasons didn,t even get going until about the 20th August.
    At least we have had nearly 30 days of skiing which is better then a poke in the eye with a blunt stick !

    Everything crossed, it seems to be spring. But when it comes this early there is always a 3-4 week cold snap late August early Sept

    Looks dire ! i can see anything now but Ra*n out of this system.! . The ECL east coast lows have really hammered us this season.... Destroyed two great bases and covers with 100 s of mm of rain just when it was looking like a great season in late July! Shite happens.. Maybe it will puke in september.

    Snow predicted Tues and Wed this week, and with the way the wind was howling from the southeast and the speed the temp was dropping up there today, I won't be surprised when it happens.
