    the shit farm isn't all that far from bottom of fc express, so maybe the warm temps and a wind from that direction

    Could be it thanks Currawong (and monkeyman lol), there are a couple of big puddles down there and I thought they might have cracked a pipe.

    was distgusting wasnt it on saturday! all day.

    I blamed it on all the 'rotting' grass and mud around the charlift.
    smelt alot more like a stagnant swamp, then a sewage treatment plant.

    on the other hand.. the skiing was great!

    Falls always does well when the conditions are crap. The southern side holds a great amount of snow.
