The crossing looked better again today, as does the route out to Clarke, Lee & Caruthers, some of shrubbery is now skiable over.

The new snow cover is pretty good including plenty of new loading on cornice slopes. It had no cohesion today and was falling away in pretty big chunks at the slightest provocation. Check out the East face of Little Paralyser, plenty of pinwheels and other junk self launching to the creek below.

These were the first test pops off a jump built next to the CP Lookout stairs. I did not stay for the planned rail grinding, it looked like carnage waiting to happen.

Yesterday Mr Barr decided to let us Canberrans off the chain so we could go for a ski. After a flurry of PMs, text messages and phone calls a sorte out of Canberra was arranged.

Heading up past Sponors we could see snow down to a fairly low level for October. We decided to tackle Guthrie’s.

No hoofing through chest high tee tree here!!!

After saying hello to @SMSkier and a little skinning we reached the trig marker.

We did laps up and down Guthrie’s on a buttery surface until yielding to hunger pains. The turnaround at CP was chockers so we hightailed it to Steves.
