G'day. I've hiked feathertop twice this summer and am really keen to get out there for a few days this winter. On the hike in/out I've noticed that it is quite undulating and was wondering what the best way to access Fed hut was in winter. I have G3 Barons and will hopefully be getting my own skins this season (finally!). Is skinning in a PITA due to the up and down approach? If so how do you guys go about it? Just boot pack the uphill or downhills, snowshoe, skins on/off a lot? While I'm here i may aswell through a few more questions at you. What's the skiing off the cornice like (E-SE aspects). I only ask because it looks like there are some great chutes and steeps on this side. Is this a no-go area or anything like that? And finally, how much snow at hotham (reported) does there need to be to make a trip out to feathertop worthwhile? I'm guessing that it isn't all that much as the NW aspect (think it's NW...facing Melb uni hut) seems pretty grassy. Thanks for your help. Simon. Oh, PS. Seeing as I'm going to melb uni this year which hut do you think is better to stay at? I like the idea ofmeeting people whilst skiing and staying at the MU hut seems kinda isolated but has anyone stayed there?
