Hi. Your correspondent in the field went up to Falls Creek to ski on Tuesday 20/8/19. The plan originally was to ski around Sun valley and skin up the Boomerang track and drop down to Pretty Valley Hut for lunch. Then after lunch one envisioned skiing up towards Mt. McKay and back down to Windy Corner. However the fierce winds, iffy visibility after lunch and a respiratory tract infection afflicted participant , yours truly, led to forming a more modest plan. At least Sun Valley was good to ski on in the morning , with fresh powder snow and interesting wind drifts and couple of dips to ski down and then up, on my fast Fischer skis. . There was snow down to the Fainters Lookout at 900 M. and chains were not being fitted to any vehicles. The Windy Corner public shelter was busy at lunch time. Usually I eat lunch out on the XC trail but the wind was howling and very cold out there. I could not feel my face , at all. After lunch I went back out for another ski ,up the Pretty Valley road. The visibility decreased to almost zero on the way back and I decided I had had enough especially since the R**n word was in action. .
