    No idea why you weren't there VSG, but even hungover worse than at SIC the skiing on Saturday was SENSATIONAL! We played a fair bit around leicharddt as it was sheltered from those nasty winds they reported as gentle but were quite stinging.

    What a weekend. My first snow trip since 2004. My last day was riding knee deep powder in the trees and coming unstuck and breaking my hand when i hit a tree.

    So i was pumped for this trip. Good snow everyday (fri-Sun), Sat and Sunday morning were just epic. Better than any day ive had in aus, and as good as any day i have had OS. Freshies to be found all day if you went to the right spots.

    Like the blog shows, Ayre Tbar was the pick of the spots. Got freshies even late in the day out wide, although the trek back to the lift wasnt fun!

    Awesome weekend. If only we could rely on snow that good all the time!

    I was there. Sat was awesome and Sunday was even better. Cutting fresh tracks wide of eyre on Sunday morning was probably the best skiing i've had in Australia. Overall an awesome weekend (even the speeding ticket couldn't dampen it). Saw a few people with snowatch stickers on helmets etc and a captiva with massive snowatch sticker on the back but didn't see anyone with ski.com.au.

    Olympic was just epic all day.........

    I was going to take heaps of pics but the snow was too good to stop.

    Had a lot of fun in the trees to the left of excellerator on Saturday, there certainly was a lot more than 5cm of snow. Kamikaze was nice in the morning and had a deceptive layer of ice at the top which seemed to be puting people off. The lift lines were non existent on the ridge after around 2pm so that was nice to.

    Best week of boarding I've had since 2000 and it killed me to leave yesterday.

    Olimpic, left of excelorator, rock garden, kamakazie, and wide of eyre and everything inbetween keeping me going until close with a smile on the dial

    Did Threadbo Sunday as the Sat lift lines were longer than I liked and enjoyed an uncrowded mountain with everything in spectacular condition and the best top to bottom boarding I've ever had there.

    Perfect with a capital P

    Sun 5th was the best sking for me since 2000. An absolute gem. Thredbo was uncrowded and top to bottom powder.

    I was there from Friday to Monday. Easily the best day of the season was Sunday. Even the crowds couldn't annoy me.

    I was there on the 7th and it was sensational until the wind hit at midday. Thredbo was nowhere as good a quality snow on the 6th as PB was on the 7th.
