    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    Wood Run, Men's DH and Southside Bowl all open today with great cover. Lots of freshies for everyone. Was very surprised how good the cover on Woody was. Sun Valley still has a bit of scrub showing through but the next few days should fix that. A bunch of kids were down there and on Hogsback even though they were closed. Skies cleared about 4.00 for 45 mins of unlimited vis above the clouds to finish a pretty much perfect Aussie ski day. Sorry no time for pics today.

    Yep. Agreed. I was suprised wood run was actally open. A almost complete cover and really good snow all day.

    A unbeleivable day at buller. My best for yonks.
    There was snow down to the gnomes house, and I was told they were fitting chains at chain bay 1 after i went up.

    The car park was a good 20-30cm when I arrived in the morning

    A very good sign when the gnomes have snow
    Chains at Bay 1 is also a good sign as well !

    I think it was 2004 when I had to fit chains to my 2WD at Chain Bay 1, seeing all the Subaru's continue past frustrated me.

    Few months later I brought a Subaru [​IMG]

    Let it be known that Carveman is true to his word.
    Fingers at the SMS ready as inside info on Grimus must be worth 2 beers!
