Yeah pretty good actually. This is him after 1 afternoon lesson and a few hours this morningHow are the kids going today?
I didn't want to jinx things but I think at their age they may be fine to hack their way around Hotham without lessons if it's still booked out.
That period looks very wet.
BOM: 50cm Thursday - Saturday. That'll help!
Yeah, we noticed that last time we were up. Very disappointedused to be (Bullers) better when the upper lifts closed 30 minutes later, last ride on Wombat was 16:30, now they closed the top of wombat (the runs) at 16:10 or so, when did they sneak that in. Same with Summit it also closes 30 minutes earlier
Yea makes my after work skiing less attractive. No time for even a quick donut at Koflers just go go goused to be (Bullers) better when the upper lifts closed 30 minutes later, last ride on Wombat was 16:30, now they closed the top of wombat (the runs) at 16:10 or so, when did they sneak that in. Same with Summit it also closes 30 minutes earlier
Lovely morning too. Cold on the southern side and northern softened in the sun. Great day for interschools and lots of little tackers out loving life. Good reward for those out Friday, Saturday. (Although I still insist that early Friday morning on Grimus rivalled today!). Lots of emphasis on snow making, but what is the going rate on just digging a little/lot out in areas unused and dumping on Burnt hut?Gorgeous sunny arvo!
One of the reasons I will never travel home on a Sunday night.Probably one of the better examples of stupidity I’ve ever seen on the way home.
White BMW sedan blew past me and another car at well over 100, in the middle of Merrijig! Hope you enjoyed my light bar champ.
Said stooge then pulled out of the very tight conga line climbing the hill towards buttercup road, and finally managed to force his way back in just short of the crest.
Skied Flat Creek a couple of times many years ago, and had to get good at dealing with this situation. Strategy: Appear to be looking elsewhere as they sneak up, but be watching out of the corner of your eye. Right as they're about to dodge past, turn around with your elbow out and flip them right out of the line. "Sorry, didn't see you there."Yes I have made it my mission to fuck with the 'singles line creeper' - I just call them out on it now.
Temps will be a problem imo. Hope I am wrong or there is an upgrade.BOM has scaled the Thurs - Sat 50cm back to Thurs - Sun 45cm.
You can't get snowfall values from the BOM forecast by summing the highest number on each day... Based on the current precipitation numbers, 20cm is a fairly reasonable estimate. With regards to the temps, it seems unlikely that it'd all fall as snow. So probably less than 20.BOM has scaled the Thurs - Sat 50cm back to Thurs - Sun 45cm.
Single line is useful and works perfectly IF you have a liftie standing at about that spot directing traffic. When I was liftie at Buller and NZ we'd have the extra staff member managing the line on the busy lifts e.g. Wombat., Howqua.The singles line is the biggest waste of time on the mountain, no idea why they persist with it. Abused by pretty much all and sundry and punishes those that try and do the right thing. Just get rid of it already.
