    Is that because your legs will only last a few days on the steeps ;)

    Looks to be a few Perisher deserters this year despite ‘Perisher being better’!.

    My legs will be in good condition from doing laps of Front Valley on opening weekend (plus all that time spent standing in lift lines at Ridge Quad!).

    Well I do not think that we should break out the skis yet but at least the ‘ground cooling’ has started.

    Has it? Is the hoar frost already developing? Bloody cold at home yesterday but there is still warmth in the ground and lots of new growth after last week's rain.

    Haven’t been up the top for a while so I do not know about the hoar frost. It has been raining lightly in the village for most of the day so fingers crossed that it stays cold.

    Walked up to the top of Snowgums today and it was freezing. Hoar frost on the wet bike tracks but not on the walking tracks.

    Yes, quite right. And the car parking is easy there, with no lift queues and much steep terrain to be explored.

    Very happy to see Thredbo being more proactive with snowmaking. In the past, they have never started until at least the last week of May.

    Not certain if Friday flats snowmaking will last long.

    Friday flat is probably the most reliable spot in australia for snow making conditions. Its 4 degrees up top this morning and minus plenty in the valley.

    My local ALDI was pretty good , less shoppers than a normal Saturday at 1030am .
    Now have a couple of new pairs of socks for me and a couple of beanies for my grandfather.
    I heard that most Aldi's had the horrendous lines by the time the doors opened this morning.

    All is right with the world! Crackenback has re-opened, the snow making has started on the bottom of the Supertrail and it is cool up high! Not a lot of natural snow although Kosci has the beginning of a cornince.

    Aside from a bit of rain, what is so horrifying? Just want to see the critters running around merrits at night, before the incoming event unveils.
