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.
We had spoken to that couple yesterday afternoon and then saw them post patch .He was a bit of mess .
Did you manage to bag one of Guthrie chutes?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 and shared many with my long time bud. Best snow was the cloudy Saturday. Walked up to middle of pic 1 and was nice coming through the trees .
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 .Did you manage to bag one of Guthrie chutes?
And CP really is a gem.
It's the quickest end to a season I can recall.
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.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.
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 !!!
....I've never stayed at CP before, how many beds are there?
