Spent last week up at PB staying at Ski rider so not far from the action and had an awesome week. We experienced all conditions except the rain that threatened the forecasts all week. It rained at night where we were but never while we were skiing so all good! Monday: Sunny skies, bugger all wind and no lift lines!! Spent first half of the day getting the ski legs back on Happy valley, Towers and Eyre. Nice dry snow. Shot over to the ridge after lunch via roller coaster (open for once..niiice) and found no lift lines again and typical ridge snow quality. Great at top bit slushish down lower. No one on the slopes so could take as much up as the slopes as possible and whatever lines we wanted. Great first day...damn knackered at the end but quickly forgotten with beers at the bar and ACDC on the juke box. Tuesday: Repeat of Monday except alot windier. Olympic on hold and would stay that way for the rest of the week...shame. Great untouched windblown snow to be found on dog leg and lower half of olympic early on the day. Wednesday: 4cm of snow overnight. Very heavy going, completely fogged out and bloody windy. Spent most of the morning on Happy valley just skiing the sides as there was no one about. Quad went on hold probably about 10am which meant not many people coming up the mountain. Attempted to go across to Eyre but at the top of Sun valley t-bar visibility was about 10m. Spent 1.5hrs at mid station drying off and eating. Nothing much better to do. The rest of the arvo we spent on happy valley again doing the same lines. Too many people on Centre valley. One lady in the afternoon found herself wedged in a tree in a not so comfortable fashion. Thursday: Sunshine again but still windy! The 4cm from Tuesday night that had not been skied was now hard ice. No good. Right over to Eyre again where it was quite good near the track but icey out wide. Some beaut lines could be found out wide where the windblown had gathered which was the go. Few goes off a small cornice that formed with the wind and we were happy as not many people attempted to ski across on the ice. After lunch headed to Guthega. Lift lines and ice were the order so gave that up pretty quickly and headed back to Blue Cow. Zali's was ice with some light cover on top and felt dodgy to ski on. Buggered that and shot over to Ridge where good snow was found and we were out of the wind. After 3pm the clouds were rolling in over the main range which looked pretty cool. I was going to take a pic from the top of Blue Cow but the strong winds and snowboarder [auto-censor] behind the rock deterred me. Friday. 3cm reported overnight. Dusting at the ski rider with flurries in the morning. Always a good sign. -1 in the village and -4 up top. Few runs down towers to warm up. Awesome cover with fresh lines down the sides. Seemed like more than 3cm. Shot over to Eyre with more nice dry snow. Was dumping down for most part of the morning with white out conditions up top that were a little dangerous. Sweet lines to be found in the trees down low and with tracks being mostly covered in pretty quickly. After a quick stop in at mid to have a break it was back to Eyre but the conditions up top were getting to us. Decided to head onto the Ridge where i was still able to find more fresh tracks (after 12pm) so i was verrry happy. Didn't take any photos on Friday on the slopes as we were too busy lapping up the snow before leaving. 5 days is never enough and after seeing photos from the weekend i wish we could have stayed that bit longer. I was only able to put on two photos last night so i will post some more tonight. View of main range from top of Mt P Top of Mt p.
