I could be tempted to ski Thredders again if you wanted play ski swappsies
to try out the Ms.

But you would need be able to fit into the NTN small fitting in lieu of the NTN big foot fitting.

Bugger I don't have tech fittings in my boots, I'm keen to try a carver as I'd like to expand the quiver with a hard pack ski.

First time since the 80's, promised a friend for her birthday. I think I still have my last alpine ski jacket too.

Quite a bit of fun today, with a tiny amount of fresh snow & lots of windblown up high. Some of those T-bars are a fair 'katabatic' experience.

Snow pretty slow & sticky near bottom, but she's a nice mountain, with plenty to offer. Good to burn up the legs after the short pitches of Falls. Funnel Web was a choppy sea of moguls exiting GCB. Was pretty cool standing at cloud level above the Golf Course bowl & watching the snow clouds roll off the range & dissipate.

Yes it does, so yes you need to pay for the next one for access. They usually close Kosi for servicing, so it may be Slowgums.

I found really weird, easy on the legs, maybe I would like it better if I learnt how to do it. When I hit steeps I really missed the teles.
I havent done Tele in a while but I found Tele easier on the knees, and Alpine easier on the quads.

@telecrag you still up for some teleflopping at Thredders tomorrow?

Any thoughts on the forecast? Will I be able to see and/or have any idea of where I've been or where I'm going?

M11, +1 and I are just back from a fun 3 days at Thredbo. The snow was mostly a bit soft but mostly not slush. Considering it's almost the end of the season it's amazing and a good time was had by all. The car was filthy - this wind is blowing in a lot of dust and there are a lot of areas where the dust has settled on the snow - this will accelerate the melt as it absorbs more sunlight.

This morning was interesting. Still quite soft underneath but either the temps got below zero of the wind chill got it there, because a lot of the surface was a little crusty first up. Over on Merritts they'd only groomed the green runs, so the blues were a bit of fun.

I reckon it's still worth a visit!

Not sure about the weather, but I will be starting from GB, back on the teles.
