"It's like a skating rink out there!" This is more by your western Canadian or American Jerry types who for the most part have almost never had to ski on true ice. The snow might be dried out from no fresh for a while, but hardpack is not ice. And morning melt/freeze is a shallow surface effect, again not the real thing. Aussies, OTOH, quickly learn about ice.
We had one very icy final half of a descent on a Chile Heli lap. The two American skiers in the group usually finished a bit ahead of PB and I on our boards, by virtue of the fact they were on skis... Not on that run! We waited for AGES at the heli for them, lots of chats had about how bad the ice was and how difficult it was to ski, and how the hell did we get down so fast on BOARDS?! Aussie training grounds Bebe!
