Snowboard or skis?not that creek, but I ended up in a stream elsewhere on the mountain. Got stuck, was by myself and took about 15 minutes of panicking before I finally hit solid ground on the side and crawl out.
Do not recommend.
Would you lap it if anything else was open? Off fall line with commensurately ridiculous bumps interspersed with lift towers and rocks. Plus the across the river and into the trees* at the bottom.
No. My post suggests it's a shit run. Always has been. Always will be. It is the sort of run that people only do so they can say they did it (and pretend they liked it), not for the pleasure of the thing.Your post would indicate that you dislike the run because you find it to challenging.
Don't get bitter get better.
And you can tell your mates in the pub afterwards. Winning.What is a good run is not fixed. It varies with time. It's about being on the best run at any given point in time. So if schuss has untracked fresh snow when the rest of the ski area is tracked out, it may be the best run available at that particular time.
But it's also subjective. One of them most enjoyable aspect of skiing for me is negotiating the less than ideal areas without falling or damaging gear. So a run like schuss in the early season can be very enjoyable for me, even if conditions are marginal.
I.e. Telling mates in pub.I don't tend to ski where the crowds are all that much, IMO many enjoy groomers more than anything, horses for courses, well entree at least. If everyone was out poaching it would take the shine off it anyway. It is a bit like BC, it takes effort and a mindset.
I just had a look at the date, Sunday 12/8/18 at 9.03am. We were a bit late getting to Gunnbarrel and the queue was horrendous. So I suggested Easy Does It, then magic carpet and across too Merritts mid. In hindsight it probably wasn't worth it.Hows old mate with the selfie stick?
I was shredding it yo...yew

What puzzles me is that this great experience is not reflected in crowds of people tripping over each other for the experience.
112 chairs from Merritts were sold by on-line auction which raised over $200,000 for worthy causes with Chair 2 going for the highest price of $4005. A more typical price was $2500 each.Ahhhh, fair enough. How much did they go for on average?
I snooze, I lose....
I was careful to say "The Mt P Double and Triple chairlifts are due to be removed next summer", because all sorts of things could happen during the current difficulties.You can’t say if they are gonna be removed next summer yet cause the DA for the next chair has not been approved yet. And a DA approval in a national park takes time
And, even if the place does get itself open it will almost certainly be on some sort of reduced basis. There won't be a lot of cash sloshing around to throw away on fripperies like new chairs.You can’t say if they are gonna be removed next summer yet cause the DA for the next chair has not been approved yet.
