Thredbo will be opening the supertrail on Saturday!

No word on whether it is from snowgums or from Kosi.

Guns still firing on ST, should relieve some pressure on the mountain for the weekend although with the school holiday influx will probably be worse!!

The guns have been on all day on the middle and upper Supertrail as well as Central Spur. They are now on right to the village. Just when we needed to snow gods to be kind they have been!

The precipitation is definitely clear rather than white but it is not super heavy. Supertrail was good first thing but the snow on Cruiser and High Noon is being affected as there are lots of people. Tip of the day...Goretex is great!

I picked up new powder / touring skis and a new goretex jacket this season, at least one of these buys will be used this season.....

Jen's bringing it! I reckon next week will be fun, I'll be there, so obviously the skiing will be better than now, as I am not there!

First day back. Late start. Poor vis. Snow pretty good all things considering.
Best run was actually Sundowner cutting across from the bottom of the racecourse to link up to Gunbarrel. Good vis down low and no one around.
My take was it was actually pretty quiet most of the time.
Best news is the Frostbite Wagyu Beef Burger is just as excellent as last year.
Good warm up day for the legs. Go harder tomorrow.

Packed it in when things started getting a little wet. Can't say the dreaded 'R@!n' word.

Wintery mix observed at Black Sallees through middle of the day, not so wintery lower down. Snow was soft and fun, but gloves were damp.

Ride on Kosi this afternoon reminded me of the Crackenback lift, stop, start, swing about in the wind, move a tower or two and repeat. Good times.

I need more reports- keep checking back to see if any of it has turned white this evening. Am not heading down until 1st week of Aug this year so living vicariously through all on here!!

Very average day. Had to go the truck in Overnight Carpark 3 today. Temperature read out said 6deg C.
Probably why I got so wet.
Weatherzone saying it is just under 0degC up the top now.
No shortage of moisture just need a deep cold blast.
Going for a swim at Leisure Centre. No doubt will be chockas!
Tomorrow having a demo day from the Rossi shop. Get to try the whole quiver in a try before you buy experience. Looking forward to it. Always bought skis on reputation and ski shop schtick.... some pressure to buy at the end of the day no doubt!
My 10 year old K2 Apache Recons may officially become the rockhoppers.
So some snow tonight would be useful!
