    And a little one of Lake Mountain, not the steepest of places but a nice place to xc ski. Has a very unique feel with all the burnt out trees, very serene.

    It's the shirts off that will win it for sure, but most have got that one a bit wrong so far.

    I'm in a bit of strife if present day fitness and time of last snow related photograph comes into play. My Snowy Mountains photo folders stop at 2011.

    No I dont sorry SB. The camp in my photos was ours one spring and was far enough back that we were really only camping on about 15cms of snow, no danger from the cornice and no cracks visible.

    I remember Heli has a couple of great photos of a camp set up worrying close to the edge one peak season but not sure where its got to.

    This thread could go bigger than "where is this". Now looking to scan my photos of skiing the barringtons (could take months as patrol member is working in ulan mines at the mo)to blow the southerners out of the water, and smack em while their down after Blowey wiped the floor with them. However Boodwah did put up a gallant fight.

    Hi The Bush Patrol,

    I'd suggest you get those Barrington ski pics posted up ASAP.

    You tease,

    Would like to see photes of skiing the Barringtons. I saw it sleet once whilst there and imagine it would be v purdy under snow. I also like the above photes of Curruthers and am inclined to think this mountain wins by virtue of it having a semi-decent run-off/apron, after the steeps. Might have to get up there this season...

    Just been through every photo I own & came up with nothin. I know someone who does if he can find them during renovations. I think I had the skiing ones & he had the skinning ones. Can't find the skiing ones so hope he has the others.

    I have walked the Polblue swamp area and checked out the lookouts... ~1500m. In Autumn. No snow. Bit like Kiandra to Tabletop or Happys in places.

    Yeh we nearly made it to Polblue but it was raining hard by then & we turned around & started the 5-7k walk back in blistered feet & ski boots, the snow we skinned in on was completely gone & after 2k or so heard the NPWS boys with the 4by had tracked us & picked us up after a good laugh at our gear including crampons & ice axes. Cost us both a pair of boots as liners ripped & shells hammered on granite.
