    Was heading up Sponars with my 7yo in that Wednesday arvo wind. Pretty wild times. Otherwise, with the exception of that wind and that bit of cloud on Thursday morning couldn't complain for the week. If we weren't getting a powder day I'll take the sun.

    Conversation overheard yesterday around 1pm just outside the medical centre at Thredbo. A passer-by asked a ski patroller about conditions on the mountain. "Carnage" was the one word answer.

    cin's pics are good pics but do display a tad hardpack so while hoping for a bit of a top up I will bear that in mind.

    Today started off looking like it would be fairly ordinary, I initially donned the rubber gloves and met up with telecrag for some very nice Valley View laps but after the snowey blob passed through the wind blown off Exhibition was REALLY nice of you waited for a window of visibility

    It is definitely due for a fresh dump
    There was a lot of windblown in those shots that kinda looked like bulletproof ice. It was lovely to ski on.
    But yes, there was also a lot of hard pack amongst it.
    Hopefully the system today does a bit more giving!

    Probably 5cms in it today. Great windblown on central spur and waimea. Another cm or two this evening will help freshen things up and change the texture off piste tomorrow.

    Managed to get an 8GB card at the newsagent this afternoon. Pretty good day and last night's dusting helped the surface World Cup being quite manageable and there was barely a queue all day.. I find these days well years by 2.30 though I am done in no matter how many rest breaks I take.

    I skied it Sat, was fun. I lost a ski going quick up the top (on the flat bit!!) and smacked my head really hard on the ground. By head, I mean face. Blood! Was a wee bit woozy for the rest of the day and family reckoned I looked "umm, funny and pale". I though that was just my demographic.

    Didn't see him but this may be the same one doing a bit of slope maintenance work on lower Funnel Web the weekend before.

    Bluebird today, no wind. Snow hard and fast. Very light dusting last night and no snowmaking. Looks like a cold night ahead so hopefully the guns will be blazing.

    Well it looks like they groom the odd black sporaically so I spent the morning with my mate and his partner on Merrits again getting some video of them and another guy in the lodge plus POV of Boundary but won't bore anyone with it well that's my excuse. High Noon was very fast after 2PM and rather deserted so most people were barrelling down there but not me taking measured turns right the way down esp near the trees bit.

    I took an after dinner walk this evening and the walk up the stairs from the village centre to Banjo is getting easier but under the full moon Thredbo's slopes sure present a picture. Tried to upload a bit of video but like most everywhere in the Antipodes upload is slower than dialup.

    I slept like a baby by myself. MrsH having had to leave yesterday morning.

    I only did a bit this morning with my friends on Merritts then went down High Noon to the car for an early getaway. For this geriatric it was a tad icier from the top and esp at the tree bifurcation zone so I feeling a bit sheepish but here is the old guy being overtaken there yesterday

    I also tried Boundary again yesterday afternoon but reckon I shall have to leave that kind of thing for the mornings


    All in all though a great break.
