been very underwhelmed by cp this year. 90 minute - 2 hour waits to get through their phones to book anything from first snowfall of the season. yet they keep advertising and selling tickets.

I was really cross at Perisher's delay in Skitube bookings, I would have got there one way or another.

I'm not sure CP made any money this year, a short season, fewer punters, fortunately we got a good dump as we arrived. I booked in late February and the oversnow in early June so I was locked in.

sorry @rowdyflat for my one day at CP this year, weather was bluebird, cover extensive and crowd's minimal. Although Guthrie's remained firm. Although TBB had the best week of the year I reckon I had the best last conditions of the year.
Sorry once again you missed out this year. Means a longer stay next year for you.

Magic day for a toodle out the back.

Glad you’re enjoying a Fozzie. This was the week my mate & I were heading to Stillwell. Would have said hello, shared a beer at least. Maybe a race down the chair line? Compare ski speed - ha ha! :D

Will have to keep it for next year? Hopefully with better snow.
It sounds like one has to head up into the alpine terrain ATM for decent BC cover?

On the positive side, I won’t to have to ‘summer wax’ my pristine Voile bases. :p

Poor bastard.....copped an earful from his wife LOL One of those people who really should get a lesson, but is having the time of his life, snow-ploughing round in the back seat with a grin from ear to ear. :D

Nice snow this morning up here at CP. Groomers were in good knick early on, cold breeze help sustain a sugary top layer. Less sun today helpful too. Guthrie's skied great too. Today surprised on the upside. Hopefully not too much rain tonight.

Back this eve after my first winter trip to CP . Previous was NYE mid 80s ish.
Loved it . Although you can bomb all the groomers in under the hour it’s off piste little bits along with the ease of trip to the MRange that make the fun . Had a ski with @Fozzie Bear :thumbs: and shared many with my long time bud.

Did you manage to bag one of Guthrie chutes?

And CP really is a gem.

Not sure ...didn’t climb anywhere there but did several wide excursions. Did like the stuff going from top a the T to the bottom of it through the rocks and trees ..in general.. stuff between T and the Poma.. And all the little steep several turn pitches about .Lapping Guthrie’s quickly is fun .

Got a bit of a look at CP today from Betts Creek. Have to say feeling a little bit bummed CP couldn't have run the lifts this last week end, Monday and today. I know they copped a flogging from the warm weather and rain earlier in the month. But looks quite ok even today, at least from afar. Certainly some tracks evident down the face of the bowl, and better coverage than early in the July schoolies.

I guess it wasn't financially viable to retain staff over what would have been a few days of no operations, just for a handful of season pass holders to ski. Sigh.

Would be a very thin base. For 2 x 1 week trips, I didn't ski The Pass once as was too much of a rock garden.

2021 Might be the year I take the oversnow cat thingie and stay at C.P. for a few days. What with little chance of jetting off abroad and almost no skiing in 2020 in Vic. or NSW , I need to ski double next season !!!

Stay tuned, I'm trying to get a deal to book my lodge for the third week in September 2021 for a BC Fest.

....I've never stayed at CP before, how many beds are there?

Enough beds that the place is never crowded in winter. If you are after leg burning huge vertical lift assisted skiing, then the place isn't for you. If you are after a very chilled skiing experience and are willing to be creative, then CP is a lot of fun. I mix up skiing inbounds with a chunk of alpine touring, so it is the perfect place for me to stay & ski. Access by oversnow does mean that you really want to be staying for a few days (or week). Not suitable for weekend warriors.

Better marketing this Summer. Didj on the radio and finally decent signage at the village entrance. Half a dozen cars at Stilwell and about a hundred up on the road and turning circle. Lots of folks setting out on foot and bike. Going to be busy!!
