    tb, was going to ski across from Charlottes to catch up.... don't think that will be a good idea. Might head around using more conventional means.

    I was planning on it, but I really don't know if it is worth the drive down. There's obviously a lot of snow coming, but it looks like it will be falling on grass and dirt. Do you guys really think any decent runs will be skiable?

    Will be there SIC w/e if this storm produces.
    TBH, I think a 5 year storm unfortunately = wind hold for Kosi Express and The Cruiser (isobars look a tad close)
    Might be a Slow Bums and Gunbarrel w/e.
    Man it looks the pits at the moment, can't get any worse surely!
    Grumpy cos of this stupid head cold and will be stuck up here [​IMG]
    Hopefully it pukes, all lifts are open and all the dirt and grass are covered with 100 cm + and there is much froth. [​IMG]

    That's what I was thinking. Dirt everywhere. And heavy rain in the forecast. Even if it dumps 50cm of POW on Friday night, surely we'll just be breaking through to the dirt underneath. At least until it's had a couple of days to consolidate.
