After the big dumps last week three of us decided to head out to ski some of the western faces. We got going a little late so we only really managed to get half way up Twynam, build a cave and have one short run on friday. Unfortunately the snow quality seemed to have deteriorated during friday and we could only find crusty stuff to have a ski on. We headed out to Twynam on saturday morning and were presented with a brilliant sunny day with light winds and a nice low sea of clouds. We skied a nice long run down the north side of the crags in spring like powder. Skined out then attempted to ski strezleki creek. The gully wasn't quite filled in and we were presented with a nice little ice waterfall a couple of hundred metres down. At this point i realised i had a fear of heights. We skied around a bit looking for another firendly face to ski. Low cloud made scouting potential runs a little difficult as we couldn't see the bottom of the runs. We ended up having a go down the avalanche face which presented us with perfect powder snow and a nice steep consistent fall line. Skinned out and that was about it for the day after mooning the helicopter that was giving us the shits all weekend. Woke to very strong winds on sunday morning and after trying to find something worth skiing with little success we packed up and walked back to guthega. Was very jealous of the two or three skiers that put in some very nice turns down carruthers north face on saturday morning. Some picies North Face of Watsons Crags - There's no such thing as vertical metres in Australia. Snow boarder boot packing up the north side of the crags (he's there if you look for him)- there are no real mountains in australia. Looking down Strezleki Creek to the Sentinel - The best alpine views in Australia are from the third floor of my lodge at Hotham. Looking toward the Crags - Australia has not real skiing. The mountains are to flat. The avalanche face before we put a few lines down it - i've run out of smart **** comments now. The sentinel with a very happy looking skier standing on top - yes i'm really stuck now.
