    Looking good for this week

    My son went down for today at Perisher, rang me and said I've got the trifecta not many people, blue skies and 40 cm of new snow.
    He said they were fitting chains to get to the tube

    I suppose Thredders is also looking good but who cares

    Hi TBB,
    Nice to catch up again.I hope you were happy that I left the bowl for you.
    Look out for Dusty B who is also in town.
    Pity Nidecker isn't here to enjoy these once in a season conditions.Well must admit the past month has been as good.

    You might be using chains to get to Thredders if the weather forecast is correct, the wind has picked up here today

    Just a side note, keep an eye on CPV website from the start of Sept as I believe there will be season pass offers for next year [​IMG]

    Thats too funny, the little girl on the chair in front of you is Gracie, she is usually in Bellas ski school class.
    Snow looks really nice.

    Bella will miss Gracie this year, but I have banished Bella to Thredbo for the season. The passes were just too cheap, and the interschools were at Thredbo for her this year.

    Sorry to hear about the weather today.. No really! Sitting here in my office in Sydney I really feel for you. [​IMG]

    Its disappointing to think that you might be experiencing slightly untoward conditions...

    Just hope that Chris doesn't burn the muffins as well!! [​IMG]

    Should be good at Thredders today Sunday

    Last entries, just a couple of photos again, these are not repeats but new ones taken in same areas as weather conditions were not ideal

    Apologies to Sago that Mat and I did carve up the bowls however I'am sure you're out there today in perfect visibility

    The last one, big kangaroo, dirt road between numeralla and braidwood on the way home, just jumped out in front

    Will try to get down one more time as it truly is the aussie powder capital, just love all those beginners who stay on the groomed runs

    Hi TBB,
    Sorry about the car,along as everyone is ok.
    Had Guthries almost to ourselves today and those tracks you left in the bowl all but filled in.Your right about everyone staying on the piste,The powder hangs around for days.We definitely have the best snow in the country.
    Great to see you again ,let us know when your up again.

    Great Photos TBB. Nice to meet you (all but briefly).

    Good to say G'day again Sago.

    Cracker of a week. I won the standard race on Saturday with my worst run (and worst conditions) ever. Makes it a little easier when there is only 25 people running and half of those are kids. But platinum is the new gold!
