    Was thinking about a little bc action for the Melb Cup long weekend (Nov 4 - 6).
    Last time I Did this was way back in '92 (kozi).

    Anyone think or know if the snow cover could be worthwhile or novelty value only?
    Comments re: Bogong or Kozi welcomed.

    Club lake chutes should still be good to go

    Great time to be up there, unless the weather is no good.

    A fabulous time to be in the hills - shortens your effective summer - & very few 'Canadians' about (;-)

    Can't lose unless the weather packs in!!

    Got some 30s forecast for Canberra this week. No substantial rain for the next 7 days though.
