Ha.


Rhetorical question.
Where are we currently regarding covid enforcement?
*besides the protest ring of steel.
My understanding of the regulations is that unless you're engaging in strenuous exercise you're still supposed to wear a mask outdoors. ha ha ha and haROFLROFL

@NightSky
Any updated thoughts on the above?

I figure NSW would need to reach 70% at least seven days earlier than originally forecast and Perisher would need to extend by more than seven days (unprecedented in my memory) for Sydney Siders to have any chance of riding a lift this year.

Feel free to tell me I'm dreaming.


PS
I don't mind parking my car at Eyre.
Nah, nothing new.

I think it will be a "wait and see" day by day affair for snow suitablibilty. But considering they opened LWE with 60cm base, I am hopeful.

I personally think it would be great PR, but I also worry that 100,000 people would decend on FV. At least it the school holidays would be over.

What a fab Spring day…. :)

One run down FV then straight over to Eyre via the usual route.

Skied Eyre with @robbo mcs and noted @Red Bill and @Normo out there as well. Those first half dozen or so runs before anyone else turned up were bliss. Make your own adventure with fresh tracks run after run. Eyre bowl, tree runs etc all skied great.

It was windy and vis with blizzards. Sweet……Eventually I left Robbo on Eyre and did loops of down Towers, up Happy, down to Sun then back to Eyre and repeat. Hardly a soul anywhere. I estimate 30 cms on Towers by the time I left.

A few grainy pics:

What’s the condition of the snow like? Looks pretty dry? I’m tossing up on what to pack for tomorrow.

Me cant work out how many cm's. Can anyone hazard a guess?

Stake ain’t the only method and it depends on many variables such as elevation and temps, wind direction etc.

I’ve indicated 30 plus cents up high (probably more IMO) and sticking with that. It seemed that the new snow, wet early on today, was consolidating to the existent snowpack pretty quickly. It was drier later in the day as temps further dropped.

Skiing from the get go this morning did not rain, even with marginal lower elevation temps that were colder up top.

Here’s the BOM numbers from pre 9:00 a.m and during today. Just on 68mm. You need to remember that AWS is just on 1738 ASL so a good deal lower than the top of Mt P……

Better vis will show how much fell at higher elevations.

Good day today, I love a blizzard;) Snowed pretty heavily all day, and not many people around made for good fun.

When I left at 3pm a few minor dramas in the carpark. There was around 15-20cm snow at carpark level, with slush underneath, which made it a little tricky for some. A few people looking for shovels, and the local tow truck earning some beer money pulling people out. Once you got to the road it was fine. There were ploughs running up and down the road, but the lack of traffic and heavy snow meant I drove down the hill leaving 5cm tyre tracks. Plenty of grip though

Here are a couple of pics, from a very similar vantage point to @Normo . These were around 12ish, so snowed a lot more after this

Indeed. I'm guessing at least most of the Sydney contingent of the Forum would be there if they could!

Monday 11th got mentioned on the news this morning again as a possibility. Something about some horse race somewhere.
