    Possibly Langford Gap Hut. I tend to ski out that way early in the season as my basic XC ski tour to build up my ski fitness for longer day trips.

    Loads of cover on the runs for tomorrow. Wondered out to pretty valley hut to check coverage, another 20 and kite season will be in full swing! Snuck in a line down inter to finish the day, full spring snow, warm out today
    Great to back out at it again

    I just read on the Falls Creek website that lift tickets are sold out from 12-19 July now.

    Anyone after accommodation for 9 people on mountain, not much use us going down now if none of us are able to ski but had accommodation booked awhile ago.

    I call it the Langford gap hut because that is where it is located. The Team Leader @Ubiquitous Steve installed a proper wood fire heater there. :)

    Don't worry , I will XC ski out there again soon and crank up the fire and warm up .Well as long as I am not locked down, again, for simply following these rules about not spreading the plague etc. I will return on XC skis and make it all the way to Maddison's huts or Wallace's hut.
    Here is a photo I took on Sat. July 4th 2020.Good snow cover, fresh , dry , continuous.

    Anyone on the mountain able to give an update on conditions and particularly how things are going with social distancing, queues etc?

    Judging by the snow cams just now, Falls looks almost deserted (unless everyone is stuck in a long, socially distancing lift queue)

    My mate sent me a text this morning - Towers and Drovers open, no queues, only 1400 people around (not sure if this is total guests or allowed lift tickets). He's enjoying the weather, but needs more snow.
