Tuesday 26 July - Another 30cm in the last 24 hours!. Hello from Perisher where you were dreaming about it last night and we have delivered today. 30cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24 hours across our four resort areas! Powder hounds prepare yourself, stretch those muscles and get ready for a great day, with 43 lifts waiting to take you through the fresh snow. With strong winds, be aware that some lifts will go on wind-hold.If you are looking for the best places to head today, get your globetrotting boots on and take flight to International T-Bar where there will be bucket loads of fresh turns to be made. Beginners jump on over to Smiggins to get your first taste of powder on J-bar land.All this great news may have you flying high, so why not head to our four PlayStation Terrain Parks to test out your tricks on our array of boxes, rails and jumps waiting for you. Intermediates can check out the PlayStation Slopestyle Terrain Park on Front Valley and the PlayStation Leichardt Terrain Park and beginners can learn the basics at the PlayStation Yabby Flats and PlayStation Piper Terrain Parks.Remember, you can keep up-to-date with what is happening in and around the resort each day and every week at our Events and Entertainment Calendar, and while you are at it check out all the latest videos coming out of Perisher.We are expecting a top of -1 in resort and more snow showers to roll on through so get up here and enjoy it!

Ted Harper: NOTE: There is never any reason to ski Smiggins on a powder day, none at all.

Pretty special day on the mountain, covered so much terrain from Mt P all the way to Ridge before 1pm. First tracks Leichardt and Mt P before it was tracked out and the vis lowered were sweet as well as some stupidly good and empty Rock Garden drops. Ridge really emptied out before it was put on hold, with windblow filling in our tracks on every lap. Stoked! Beat Normo up as well I think :p

Maybe I should stick to the Aged Care thread. Dementia seems to be setting in ROFL

There's an aged care thread?? I must of forgot it

Marty_McSly: Not on the ground ATM but in past years it's been fairly close. Maybe a 20-30 minute lag when a key lift opens, eg Quad on a windy day or MtP triple when the cover is a 3 groomer wide strip of manmade.
Trail status, not lift status.

MarkGC: Yeah, there are a few of them that are absolute institutions. Herbie was head of the snowsports school at Blue Cow before the merger. I remember Christian saying that he thinks he holds the record for the most seasons (counting each Northern and Southern winter) instructing. Something like 70 or so when I got lessons off him in 2008.

Spent most of the day lapping Interceptor, seemed there was always a new piece of untracked goodness to find in the trees. Headed off to lunch at mid-station and when I got back I swear I found tracklesz paths through the trees I had already done that morning. Nicely filled in again with windblown. In the end I headed to Blue Cow with the intention going Brumby and getting the tube back to Perisher. A still running Ridge Chair beckoned though and I did one spectacular lap through the trees and rocks on riders left and you would have thought no-one had been there all day. With the wind picking up I bailed to the bottom of Easy Starter where a nice man on a Skidoo picked me up. Now that's service, well done Perisher. Now seems like we have to do it all again tomorrow.
