    Ooooh, looks like Karels T bar has gone!

    That might rule me out for Thredbo, may have to take Donza's advice and head to Perisher!

    Message to self, must remember to never doubt Donza.

    That was good advice mate, thank you. Just on the way home from two days at Perisher and had a nice time.

    I heard Thredbo was down to five lifts today.

    And so it draws to a close, Thredbo's snow report Tuesday afternoon.........

    "Lifts Operating
    3 lifts are expected to open tomorrow - the Basin and Karels for skiing and boarding and the Kosciuszko Express for access".

    I was only 5 days off on my earlier prediction ... not bad.

    Shame we didnt get more snow this year after that start.

    Silly report today, I forget what exactly but something like "weve had 102mm of rain in the village but its snowing now" awesome-thanks.

    But I have bought the next year season pass special, good initiative, I will use it, and I won't be hanging out in my car-so win/win.

    Today?????!!!!!!!! A silly report.

    95% of the time it's a silly report.
    Yesterday - "Platinum Pass accesses all the mountain...... only the Basin area is open"

    Or today;
    "3 lifts expected to open today. The Basin and Karels for skiing and boarding and the Kosciuszko Express for access. <b>Karels currently on visibility hold.</b>
    Experience will show that Karels will not come off vis hold. Expecting it to open is just their BS spin.

    GO PERISHER - really!

    Yeah, but Thredbo is like John West, they only select the best POW, leaving all that sloppy, heavy goop for the other, less selective resorts. Chanook snow, you know, crystals are too close together, not enough air...

    Oh well, thats that for 2/11 resort. Nice finish though. Headed up last night, knowing that I needed to come back this arvie for work. Had a couple of runs down Basin, the only thing open, then headed up to Eagles Nest for coffee and a wrap

    Then a couple more runs, and on with the skins, to find some fresh nearby

    Nice day, awesome views everywhere

    Laid down some trax

    Then as I have become a resort skier, it was time for a relaxing latte

    It was fcucking disgusting.

    Brilliant half day sliding to finish the resort season, backcountry spring is looking nice. 32 days, not bad for a w/e warrior.
