    I saw you boys shooting Ballroom as I waited for my daughter toward the bottom.

    It was a nice day. Snow rapidly deteriorating in the bizarrely warm weather. Still lots up high though.

    Thanks so much to everyone for sharing their trips. Having to sit this season out, I've been able to ski vicariously. With Japan booked for February I'm hoping next year will see me back on form!LOL

    Chatting with Stu this morning, numbers are double, that's double, so far this other season. The chairlift is at max capacity now, with walkers and riders, lines at both entrances.

    It's incredible that the lift can be that busy in summer. I can't say enough how much I miss Thredbo. Waiting for the time I can go back. I mean real back not just driving through for a day or two.

    Yep, its really fun! And long. Next section should be complete by April, looking like our second EPIC trail. Bit more technical than the Flow, with some bigger features, but mostly all rollable.

    This is at the bottom

    If you passed three slow moving clowns on the bright yellow hire bikes, I was the slowest one at the back.... in fact I was so far behind the other two one might not even realise I was part of the group.

    The new all mountain trail is a lot of fun, although a bit challenging for someone of my limited riding ability. They have it as green/blue on the trail descriptions though, not a very accurate call being more technical than the flow trail - I can see someone getting themselves in a tangle down in the trees. Can't wait till they finish the top section because that climb up alongside Anton's dam near killed me, really must do something about that middle aged spread.

    I like the climb - keeps the trail empty so I can get a clear run when the flow trail is packed...

    I think it flows better than the flow trail though.

    All the B-lines and features are rollable.

    With the Lynskey I could *almost* ride up the FT section there by the third lap!
