    But if you wait for longer than 15 min you might as well walk.... if your boots allow it

    I’d never consider taking Gully chair and going via viaduct unless I was doing XC anyway...i.e. already geared up.

    Definitely take the shuttle bus to Windy Corner. Bus stop is right at base of Gully chair.

    From Country Club you can even ski down to bus stop if you wish. Just go out the door near ski storage room. Ski to the right and right again.

    Thanks chris, hope you enjoyed bb. fairly quiet here quite impressed with fccc, very spacious compared to feathertop but missing the nice bar vibe.

    Swings and roundabouts. Country club is really conveniently located but you're right, no vibe in bar. Game to go up to the Man or Astra ( which is more civilised for mature, sophisticated skiers) ? Fresh snow up there? BB claiming 4 cm but has closed Maltese lift where the cover was thinning yesterday, but still fun. Make the most of a late season ski trip.
