I had a really great day at Charlotte Pass today. Took hundreds of photos, skiied all over the place including a bit of hiking to the mountain peek side, although not even got close to the base of the peak

before I turned left and skiied down through the tree behind the village and back to T-Bar loading station. I found that snow on Avalance run side was very sticky, more sticky than other parts of the resort. I spent most time around the Poma and T-Bar.

Oh Beef Burger at Kosi Restaurant was very nice too.

Might try Twin Valleys when some company arrives next week and when we get some cooler weather. Snow getting thin and quite sun/wind affected. Lots of bush bashing on a trip over Mt Guthrie and down to Spencers Creek today.

Also bade farewell to Fat Boy and Wiggle today.

What a great day out of CP. Skinned out to Twin Valleys and did a bit of graffiti on the face. Quick stop at the ruins on the way back and then beers in the bar. Finished off with couple of runs off the chair. Brilliant spring boarding. MR looks to be holding up well - give it a couple of days. If ya never have been give CP thought in the future - I rate it. Spewn we missed the bbq

Yeah, it's on the radar for '14 Gimp. And thanks Angus for your posts that've put it there.

Is there a date for the SIC?

I hear they will be opening Guthries for the closing weekend with the snow they have had the last couple of days.

visited C/Pass first week in September, very disappointed. All runs open but none groomed. 4 of us visited and will not return, they need to do more

What part did you visit? Was there for two weeks at the same time and given the very warm temps - up to 15c at times - I thought they did a fantastic job in keeping things running. And grooming was done, they do it at night when it is colder and the snow firmer and there are less people out skiing. But you wouldn't have seen that. Mind you virtus001 you might have enjoyed Thredbo more at the time, oh thats right, by the end of the first week in September Thredbo only had The Basin open......

Did a day trip to Charlotte Pass on 11 Sep and had a fantastic day considering weather condition.

Thredbo closed Antons and Merritt on 17 Sep.
