Who’s able to head up today? Looks decent after the variable weather. Another 3 cms overnight. Could see someone I know up top by 9:00 a.m. ;)

Is that just a trick of the light or is there quite a substantial cornice under the Olympic top station?

I went for a wander around. Lovely morning, sunny and clear, but cold and windy.

The snow is in pretty good shape. Always amazes me how it bounces back after rain, with a cold night and a bit of fresh. The fresh stuff is light and blowing around.

Little memorial at Sun Valley :cry: . Sadly, two deaths in relatively recent years close to the t-bar load. Stopped and had a silent moment here.

Carpark then along the road towards Interceptor. Up behind lodges then through some nice gentle terrain to the trig point above interceptor. Ski back down on fresh then skin up to a point a few hundred metres short of the trig. Ski down to HV base. Up the groomer to top of FV. Ski to car, coffee and done. A couple of us out there @Goanna @SalleeGirl @hillyb. Well distanced as usual with one pair starting 10 mins behind.

Still variable conditions. Pretty windy and that’s impacting the surface. But also providing decent skiing on the right aspects. Noted that Zalis was fully groomed.

IMO @cornice12 its not being wasted, just sadly leveraged by a lot less folks. However…I agree with your sentiment :thumbs:

Had a short but very good ski with @hillyb and @SalleeGirl this morning. Timing was good with snow just softening.
Went up Interceptor again and skied down through the trees to the service road and then back around PV and up the trail to the V8. Nice fresh groomer there back down to the carpark.
Big smiles on faces at the bottom.

Getting ready for the run down Interceptor.

So sad to hear that lockdown is continuing for the Snowy Monaro LGA.

One bright note, if I am reading it correctly, is that fully vaccinated Sydney people can travel to the regions on 18 October, just in time to see the last snowflake melt.

Was worried about that. So got in and out early.
Since the lockdown, I have found it difficult to get out of bed at the usual 5:30am, despite early mornings being the best time for skinning up. There's something that drives the 'normal, ski resort open' early morning rise; like (a) beating the traffic up the hill, (b) getting a good parking spot, (c) short, sharp conversations with Normo pre-queuing, (d) the banter in the queue for first lifts and (e) the quality of early morning skiing before the crowds take over. Lockdown rises at circa 8:30am, very long breakfasts, re-reading the news a few times and so on just aren't cutting it atm!
