From my own excursions into the western side of the range and through the Jagungal area ,there doesnt seem to be many around these days due to various factors ,chief of these is a rampant wild cat population (something we are dealing with quite aggressively ,cat lovers leave me alone - these are no longer domestic pets ,they are total feral and need to be exterminated ). With that said however these diminutive creatures are fairly hard to spot and only exist in certain locations through the West Wall and Jagungal area.I reckon the resorts should fund a proper, alps wide, burramys survey. The little buggers pop up in inconvenient places for ski runs because that is where people look. They don't (AFAIK) look for them anywhere else. If an alps wide survey reveals that populations are scattered hither and yon across the high country the resorts may get a bit more leniency with developments. And it would be nice to know that there are lots of the little cuties around.
rampant wild cat population
We had a dingo x wild dog living under our caravan in Jindy a couple of years ago. That was randomSpotted a huge tabby just uphill from Sponars this October, I did let Parks know the same day.
Curious as in October 2018 I spotted a dingo just up hill from Ski Rider, so very similar area to above, again let Parks know the same day, they did get excited about this report.
Here you go folks.
At one point snow was falling as heavy as any time this Winter. 4WD required. Road to CP closed. Snow down as far as Ski Rider on the way out. Just random shots. Up to 20 cms in places....
As an aside... @rocketboy ... do you recall someone saying they would be sending skiing pics in November? Just need that road open .
Oh, @robbo mcs. Noel was after VM today
Ski friends reporting the end of 2019 skiing.......I trust you’ve had a great ski season. Well played.
I’ll keep posting ski pics into November. Please continue to advise everyone it’s over. .
Surely a bit of rain has not washed away all of this, taken just a few days ago, away.....I think there are a few more turns out there yet. It’s not all resort based......
If only people used the pedestrian crossing more, instead of squeezing past cars. I'm glad I've got an old crappy car I take to the snow, as every time I washed it there was a new scratch.I had my car serviced recently. As part of the service they fill out a section on the condition of the car. This is what is looks like after a couple of seasons parking in the perisher carpark
I have such a clearly defined impression of a 160cm ski embedded in the drivers side door of my XV, you can almost work out the din setting on the binding!I had my car serviced recently.

Nuggets is totally insane.I have such a clearly defined impression of a 160cm ski embedded in the drivers side door of my XV, you can almost work out the din setting on the binding!
Oh.......it was parked alongside the pedestrian crossing the day it "magically" appeared.
Lots of other dings all around the car but (think) just as many of them appeared after a trip to Nuggets.
People are careless, or the wind was blowing, or the kid was being a shit, or the trolley took off........
But........just a car............ever parked in Paris?
Wouldn't object to seeing this sign on the T-bars either....I know we all often whinge about the stupid things that go on in lift lines We are not alone This is quite a funny thread I saw on TGR ski forums https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php/331121-Lift-Line-Stupidity
Includes this gem of a photo. I think we should get Peter B to order one of these signs for when Perisher install the new 6 chair on MT P
I didn’t ski all season due to a new arrival in late March but I was down there for a long weekend and had a chance yesterday, so thought why not?
Edit: Sun Valley and plenty of walking btw
