On Tuesday September 11th 2018 I skied the entire Heathy Spur loop .I started from Windy Corner and set out on my Skinny skis. My non skiing friend Ms. C. and I set out from Myrtleford in the Tee Mobile . It was a sunny morning. Ms. C. had a sore ankle and just did a few ski village based snow shoe walks near the Windy Corner XC shelter , while I skied off towards Mt. Nelse. I know the back country route well out there along Heathy Spur from previous snow shoe trips. That involved Herringboning straight up the hill off the Bogong High Plains road at one point. I generally went in a straight line cross country / off piste heading for "The Park". Sometimes I intersected with the groomed track with its orange temporary poles and skied on that surface. .The Spring snow was holding up rather well . It was soft ,granulated and slowish to ski on but I really thrived on this excursion. The skies cleared to a sunny day near Mt. Nelse but the wind was really howling up there . At one point I just stood there and the wind pushed me along at a nice pace on my skis. Skiing away from the groomed Heathy Spur temporary pole line in skinny skis was no drama at all .The snow had a mild crust on it in the morning but being spring, it was well packed down so sinking in skinny skis without metal edges was not happening at all. I do find that I ski better all round in my skinny skis . I set off at about a hair before 10 am and stopped for lunch at Watch bed Creek on the way back at 1 pm . It was so windy that I hid behind a rock to make a few wraps and eat some fruit. That "shelter" at Watch Bed creek is like an ashtray on a motorcycle. Can't PV build an information booth that can double as a wind break ? The pony tailed suits at the slick consultancy office that designed it have never been there when it is very windy or the snow or rain is coming down horizontally ! ;-P. I skied down the Paralyser /Watch Bed Creek track with parallel skis using step turns and no snow ploughing or snow plough turns. I did not fall over once all day. I had arranged to meet my non skiing friend at approximately 3 pm back at the Windy Corner XC ski shelter. After lunch I powered back along the BHP to Windy Corner and was feeling very fit and skiing efficiently and confidently. I arrived just before 3pm and I stopped along the way to take a lot of photos during the course of the day . I saw quite a few people and school groups heading out for overnight snow camping/ ski touring. The good weather window and good spring snow cover above 1700 M. was perfect for this kind of thing. I did have enough daylight and legs in me to have skied out to either Fitzgerald's hut or Edmondson's hut . I was smashing it and can now say such day trips and a day trip to Tawonga huts in 2019 white season are totally doable for me. A cog has turned and I am now at that level. I am pleased about that. This time last year I could not ski to save my life. Now I am at a stage where my dream to ski tour the Bogong High Plains is becoming a reality. I am hanging up the planks for 2018 in readiness for my Indian Himalayan trek which is coming up very soon. This season, I have XC skied so much , in so many different places , in powder, crud, boiler plate, slush and spring corn. I now can say " I used to snow shoe, I can now XC ski , I am a skier and skiing the Bogong High Plains is my thing!".
