    Got back to our lodge at Charlotte Pass at ten to eight in time for beers with smoked trout and gourmet cheeses. Nice last ski in a very challenging year.

    Remnants of fresh snow up-high (pic 2) and clearing weather would suggest either Sunday or yesterday.

    For 11th Oct I would say the cover was closer to fair than poor for the date.
