Thanks to Michael Hampton, circa 2000.

Re: Where is this?

Exceptional snow cover indeed. Was that taken in 2000 or just printed around then? That is a lot of snow on the northern/western side.

After this year I was almost tempted to say that must be O/S or seriously photoshop'd!

Re: Where is this?

It's the Crosscut Saw! 1710 metres high, and one hell of a scary ski.

And one of you lot from North of the Border said on another thread that Mt Wills (1753 m) was too low for skiing :rolleyes:

Re: Where is this?

Hey VSG, (and anyone else who is interested). I know it's 10 months away, but my club is definitely doing Bluff - Magdala - Howitt Crosscut Saw - Bindaree as our "Big Winter Trip" next July. Options for XCD & AT skiers and for the snowshoe /ice axe & crampons mob. PM me next April for dates and no, we don't care if you're not a member, we just have to be sure that you're up to a fairly hard trip.

This year we did the Overland Track for our "Big Winter Trip". A bit of snow on the northern part, but just plain wet past Pelion.

Re: Where is this?

Bogong...whats your club? YHA?

Sounds good....ever since I stood between the pillars of Hells Window I have wanted to ski the thing. There are some nice lines down the Devils Staircase too....

I skied Howitt a couple of years ago in Winter and it was great. Loads of runs that just get steeper and steeper plus some large bowls/gully action to be had on the back side of Howitt.....

Yep, YHA Bushwalking Club, nothing do with the YHA backpacker chain. I think you know our social secretary. We are definitely doing Bluff - Magdala - Howitt Crosscut Saw - Bindaree as our "Big Winter Trip" next July or Aug. Options for XCD & AT skiers and for the snowshoe or crampons with ice axe mob. PM me next April for dates and no, we don't care if you're not a member, we just have to be sure that you're up to a fairly hard trip.
