    Plenty of recent activity at Steve’ Cafe. Lunched there with the family a few days back. Quite a few folks out and about including my granddaughter. PV’s newest skier.

    Is it too soon to start speculating on how good the snow will be for season 2018?

    One little patch in PV up high. Main range has patches dotted here and there.

    Couple of tiny patches below Olympic load and the dog leg. Also there is another little one (that I didn’t photograph) below the traverse between the top of the Quad and Blue Cow.

    No spring skiing in the holidays... Too late

    I see the path worn in by Normo last season still hasn't grown over

    No, you are mistaken. @Normo doesn't put in that many shaped turns. Wasted energy and slows him down too much ;)

    I am very hopeful of introducing our grandsons to the slopes next season, at Smiggs. I'm just trying to figure out though what complications might be planned for on account of diapers perhaps still being an issue:eek::confused:.

    iWell, thanks for whoever created the thread cause I wasn’t sure where I was gonna put these photos. It seemed really quite, not sure about you guys but last year seemed much busier particularly in Jindy.
    Also ther is a boat load more snow up high than last year,

    I’m not sure what is going on over at the double but there some photos there.
    Also got one of Leichhardt and the tow enjoying there final summer on the mountain.
    I have some more from around centre valley if anyone wants them
    Now let’s see if my phone can handle the upload

    Actually maybe Smiggs won't be the place seeing that getting the little guys started on a magic carpet will be better.

    The magic carpets at Smiggs are perfect for the littl'uns.
    Carpet 3 on Front Valley is for the advanced/dedicated...............:D

    Great. I couldn't recall a magic carpet there but now you mention it, yes, below the chair loading area. No worries about changing the younger one either, in the back of the car.:thumbs:

    Before phone-to-site I used to have the pics on a pocket camera and then copy them to the laptop, resize them in preview mode using the basic windows photo viewer, clip the relevant bit, saving as a JPEG taking about 50KB, then upload that. Can still that but if travelling with only a phone and maybe a tablet I also wonder how to do it.

    Walked out on the range today to Tate. Pic looking back to Guthega and Blue Cow.



    Then then dropped into Eyre Cafe on the way home (Drove from Guthega Dam to Perisher via the Link Rd) About 30 people (not all in shot) keeping Steve busy!
