    There was one girl chasing Normo around the hill yesterday, but I wish her luck trying to keep up as none of us can.

    Yep... Came across a car struggling to get out of the snow where people were parking off the side of the road before the carpark. Offered to help them and was waved away, so jokingly said to put their chains on as I walked away. Five minutes later they drove past me down the road towards Smiggins with their chains on *face palm*

    I saw chains at Wilsons Saturday morning.
    White corolla in a three car convoy. They were diligently applying
    The other two were SUV's
    Same convoy nearly drove me off the road sunday.

    Windier than Canberra on an exciting day, and even colder. Perisher Quad express predictably closed so we confined ourselves to laps of FV. 9yo son testing out his Roces adjustable ski boots for the first time (thanks forum members for the recommendation) and racing me down the Valley. No prizes for guessing who won on the majority of occasions. FV looking a treat, but Perisher are rather disingenuous in claiming Smiggins to be "open" (= ski carpet plus lower third of J Bar land).

    Found a nice little run through the trees. Was sweet. :thumbs:

    Lady P: Last opening weekend, Perisher only had the magic carpet open. But the resort was open. Normo did 100 laps. :)

    Normo set a VM record on the magic carpet that will never be beaten. Anyone willing to ride the magic carpet will lack the ability to beat it. Anyone with the ability to beat it will be unwilling.

    Caption This.

    I'll start.

    Hey Dude. Where's the most dangerous place in Perisher for Collisions and Injuries ?

    I don't know, dude. I heard Goats Gully was gnarly. But let's sit here and have a meeting about it.

    LOL <shakes head>

    Wind hold will be the issue today.
    I was nearly blown off the footbridge coming in from the carpark. I'm huddled in the tunnel right now but it could be first tracks at Brunellis til things settle down a bit. No movement on the V8 at this stage.:(
