But sometimes we'd do ***** before ******I'd hit ***** then I'd follow that to ******* back up ***** ...hike up to *** ***** and straight through the trees onto **** *** hook into the trees and cut over to ***** again. From there I'd probably head over to ******* and hit that for an hour or so, by this stage it should be tracked out....From here I'd head to ****** and cut a few around the chair
if that was the case there are other lifts that they would close first (eg lakeside, monkeybar). if it's staffing issues it's more likely to be grooming/snowmaking than lifties imho.Maybe they have "released" most of the lifties as September is usually a little less busy.
Nope, no staff will have been released yet.....looks more like they are wanting to clear snow from under the chairline to provide required safety clearance between snow and chairs.Maybe they have "released" most of the lifties as September is usually a little less busy.
Today, early and up high the snow was sweet in the BC. Firm and fast enough. Lower and on the groomed trails it turned into elephant snot by noon. Poling needed on the downhill, ugh.
The extent of cover struck me again. Just about complete in Rocky Valley. Creeks running through channels of snow 1-2 metres deep. Cornices on Heathy Spur! Wind-blown up to the eaves on the shed lee sides near the dam.
Apart from the ridges and high spurs it hasn't consolidated though.
I was up for the morning..... it was great! Blue skies, no wind, fresh turns, no crowds. This morning was an unexpected bonus.... we nearly didn't go but changed our mind when the cam images went from fog to blue sky.Any one go up today? My mate pulled the pin so didnt end up going looks like it cleared up but hows the wind?
After an awful day yesterday, and hearing the rain fall on my roof quite heavily all night, I wasn't expecting a good day. However it did snow while we had breakfast and we were up on first lifts. Got to the top of the mountain and found a fresh 10+cm. Had a wonderful couple of hours getting fresh tracks all over the place. No it wasn't powder, and it was pretty slow, but it was pure and smooth. Lovely. Ruined Castle was empty and my young son and I had fresh tracks till 10am.Any one go up today?
