    For a change, I spent the weekend at Falls Creek with the group of friends that was responsible for getting me addicted to skiing ~ 20 years ago.

    What a weekend to go to Falls - bucketing down snow both days of the weekend, the only respite was briefly (~ 40 minutes) in the late arvo on Saturday. Fantastic Snow, I got some great freshies on Sunday amongst the trees around the Milky Way/Last Hoot/Wombat's Ramble area. Also got to ski the Diamond Maze in decent snow cover for the first time in 4 or so years. [​IMG]

    I tried to register also, it doesn't work. I just keep clicking "submit" then it takes me back to the register page but no fields had mistakes in them.

    Back on topic, Falls sounds great wish i could get up there :(.

    Hows the maze area?

    Dry quality groomed runs on Summit in the early morning:

    Great, softening runs in the Maze through the morning:

    h2oskier - yep! Spot on. It was very bumpy but very soft moguls and the cover is good enough that the turns were nice in the funnel on the widest Y.

    Had an absolute blast!

    I'm about to write up a report, but the summary is: f***ing fantastic!

    Looked like Sunday would have been the best, but we didn't get there until late, skied Monday to Wednesday, great conditions, some cloud on Tuesday, getting a little warm at the end. My quads are dead!
