Hi. Your correspondent in the field accompanied by the redoubtable T.P. just skied at Lake Mtn. today Sat. Aug. 10th 2019 . It was total powder. It was nuking down all day like one seldom sees. We skied 12kms including the main black run: the full Jubilee loop and down the Royston trail ( long descending blue run).We saw maybe 10 other skiers out there in total all day. We saw 40 cms on the snow gauge at the Triangle Junction. The Car park was packed with snow ball throwing people who were digging their cars out ! This morning It was snowing in Marysville, big fat flakes! , and on the Dom Dom Saddle. cannot believe they made me fit chains at Jock's Lookout ( just some 3 kms out of Marysville ) on a car with AWD and Limited Slip Differential and snow and mud tyres and it is festooned with KNP, Falls Ck. , Stirling ski passes etc. However the rubber Diamond Pattern snow chain wheel tensioning hook doovalacka, which snapped off in my hand :-0 did not make crawling up the hill a very confident experience. It was newbie chain fitter central there at that chain bay and some people were turned back because they had not any chains at all. There was a car crash on the Black Spur on the homeward trip. We had to turn around and drive home via Yea and Whittlesea :-0. . My camera battery died on the way back down the hill .So I missed out on taking some pictures of some wonderous winter scenes a long way down the hill . I am lucky the loose wheel chain did not damage anything crucial on the car such as the brakes or worse still the flux capacitor. I will post a full trip report with photos soon.
