    In a bit of news for Smiggins locals, I just received confirmation that Carolyn and Greg will not be returning as managers to The Coachman lodge for 2021. As well as perhaps from having stayed at the lodge in recent years, some of you will know Greg from many years at the ski school and/or as a masseur and Caro working at Snowline. I'll check in with them and see if (hopefully) they have lined up a gig on-snow elsewhere, otherwise hopefully I'll get to ski with them as customers at some point.

    Graupel. Lots of it around 2 pm. Temps reasonably mild at circa 3 degrees in the village. Ample water in the creeks and green everywhere.

    It’s just a pic off the cams but how moody can the mountain appear, even on a Summer evening........

    Kristian Keller died today at age 85. He worked 54 winters back to back in Australia and Switzerland. He's the fella with the thicker ascent in the below video.

    This is so colossally shite 2020 honestly can go and ........
    I never met him, but he taught my dad for nearly 20 years. I just told him and he was devastated.
    What a sad day....

    Reminder for those that can/will be in the area tomorrow that Eyre Cafe re-opens for the summer on Boxing Day (weather permitting - and not Wednesdays because golf). @SMSkier that’s still the case isn’t it?

    When I first discovered snowsports in 2013 I was on Front Valley struggling to get the hang of snowboarding. An old guy in a Perisher jacket came up alongside me half way down after I stacked it for the umpteenth time, "don't worry you'll get the hang of it" he said with an accent. Maybe it was him:(

    Nice up there today. A few folks about with quite a large group turning up as we left. So Steve is doing ok for opening day. Had an Eyre burger and beer but I did note that “carrot cake” was available.




    Caught up with some of the @Billy Jack clan. Winter corner always the best spot :thumbs:



    Grandkids enjoyed it:p



    Grandson Harry is getting a younger sibling come Winter....another skier no doubt :whistle:.



    Just 6 months to go......

    The carrot cake looked very good but managed to resist after yesterday's gluttony.
