    Oh my goodness what a lovely idea, I would so love to come. Unfortunately I won't be in Jindy, as I will have returned to the land of having-to-work-to-pay-for-my-family's-skiing-trips. I hope you all have a wonderful time!!!

    I made the mistake of telling my physio I went for a ski on Sunday. The skiing part she was OK with, but when I said the outside part of my knee hurt at the start her smile widened and she then proceeded to dig her elbows into something called an ITB.

    If I come up, I'll want to ski and something will hurt. Do we really need to give her more ammunition to inflict more pain and suffering on me ?

    Possibly not.

    But all the smiles you’ll see over frosty glasses of made with love beer will make up for me thinking about your pain.

    I ***may*** blow in Saturday for a quiet ale. Can't drink too much as going for a walk with skis on Sunday.

    What time are you guys starting ? Still 4pm ?

    You’re too kind! I wish, I have to drive to Melbourne on Monday (to pick up my wedding dress yay) so need to be sensible and wash/pack on Sunday!

    But I should have my designated driver with me on Saturday if I ask very nicely, so that’s good :emoji_champagne_glass:

    Haha, mine just keeps swapping out the exercises I can do with ones I struggle to do. Up to 5 x 20 sec reps of hopping on my still healing knee. Brutal !

    If I can find my booties, don't want cold wet feet on the crossing ;)

    I wonder if we can convince @chicski to come along to show us how XC is done ? :out:

    I need gentle slopes and IIRC that’s a steep incline either side of the river. I was wondering if a xc walk/ski along the road towards Kosi would be an option though.

    It’s all gentle except a few vertical metres to get onto Lee saddle, and I’m guessing I’ll be smashing a skin track shelf on this for you anyhow.

    The shoulder of Lee is a gentle down.

    Old sandshoes for the crossing only, leave em at the river and back on to recross home.

    And leave dry pair of shoes & socks & hand towel in plastic bag on the CP side to dry off & have a comfy wander up the gentle rise to the car park.

    It’s all in the planning.

    Your skis have metal edges, should be able to ski the shoulder down quite well !

    Just use step turns, christies or parallel on the downs. Traverse the slope, rather than how you approach it on your alpine gear.

    Or hire some AT and give that a go, you would love it I reckon.

    But no heel binding! Will put the gear in the car and see if I can be convinced.
