    Excellent conditions this morning. Consolidated sugar snow on the trails, softening off them.
    On the new NTN rig; turned most of the way down to Road 24. 220 m of vert. Stoked.

    Mt McKay shed; the toppled radio mast is from the strong winds early in the season


    Bogong in the distance


    Looking back from Road 24

    Thanks Ziggy. You entered and exited via Road 24?

    Nothing like a 600m ascent on skis. At least going home is nice.

    Nooo. I'd still be up there.
    Came across from the resort 'Summit': Headwater bowl, Mt McKay Rd, Mt McKay. Down to Road 24, and skied back up into the resort.
