Just a quick report from today. The road to selwyn is blocked at the gate, which had a staff member there to tell you its closed. I spoke to him and asked about the cross country trails and parking situation, apparently they're trying to work out something but atm the construction site is not blocked off and they had problems with people yesterday walking around the site in the snow which obviously you cant have happening. He was nice enough to let me drive up to the car park to turn around, saved me doing a 5 point turn haha. Plenty of snow up there, probably the most I've seen. I parked at the court house and did a quick skin to the top of the old ski hill. Trip up was good, ski down was terrible. Snow was like glue. As far as the power goes, if its coming over from the east the old lines that were burnt are gone but no new ones installed. But briefly looking at the site today, they still had a fair bit of work to do. Definitely wont be happening now. Oh and if anyone is planning to park on the side of the road. Don't park where you might get stuck. Saw two cars within 100m of one another today stuck in the snow.
