    Had a run to Selwyn Friday (was collecting snow for son's birthday party the next day)

    Ended up having a great day! Best part was going off piste and up nice hill here:

    (fresh tracks yum!)

    The snow was so very soft in these sections every turn on it felt like a soft cushion of love, something I don't think I'll forget quickly!

    It was very busy being the NSW,ACT combined holidays, but it was still very fun. Going off and finding all sorts of nooks and cranies was so much fun [​IMG]

    The staff were awesome as always, you always whip up a quick convo with them and the other people at the park.

    I wish you guys could expand further and deepen into those sections [​IMG] Some long runs would make it perfect! [​IMG]

    I believe Selwyn is allowed to expand to three times the size it is today, would be nice to see it one day, BTW what ever happened to the twin towers T bar that was purchased from Falls Creek.

    The Township Triple chair was purchased from Falls Creek. It replaced our twin t-bars.

    Gilgandra, you either know it or have no idea!
    How is the modified Clive?

    Does he smell less or should we get ready for the sulfur smell!

    Sorry to quote you but I think and know this chair came from Buller as it was the Abom triple chair. Quote me if i'm wrong but i'm 100% sure i'm not. [​IMG]

    You're probably right, I wasn't sure which of the two it was and went with Falls. Thanks.

    To my surprise when I moved back up the mountain in early June Clive was not modified. I think the whole approval process chewed way too much time and Clive was kept in tact unfortunately. There is always this summer right?

    Yo Blinkin, heading down with the wife n kids next Thurs, Fri and Sat. Pretty keen to get stuck into the old Long Arm and K Ridge. How are Powerline and some of the sunnier aspects holding up with all this drizzle?

    My daughter will cry if she can't ski Long Arm and K Ridge (that's code for I will cry).

    I notice everything is still listed as excellent on your site. Come on now, a patch or two must be emerging. Honest now....

    If you had to choose between Friday 29th July or Monday 1st Aug, which would you pick.

    plan is to do terrain park stuff. (+ lesson)
