Great to see that Perisher are still using snowmaking. Watched the guns blazing away at Smiggins while having a not-so-leisurely breakfast this morning.
25/8/16 - 12:25pm
Sunny day with cloud over the main range
25/8/16 - 9:17am
Holy heck , that looks painful. Gotta remember you do the skiing, Perisher does the grooming. Speedie recovery
25/8/16 - 8:32am
Wowsers , that is a solid knock. Full body ice bath...

Geez @ Normo you don't do things by halves. Hope you have a good physio to help clear that bruising. You must have bones of steel!

Another sunny day with just a dusting overnight.Snow guns still going in Smiggins

Beautiful morning at Smiggins but alas, no new snow. 35cm predicted a week ago has translated into maybe .35 of a mm. The topsy-turvy season continues ...
25/8/16 - 6:31am
Yeah follow the signs to the terrain park, but keep on going past it.
24/8/16 - 10:43pm
GlenH: All the best Normo, hope you are back to it soon. What is this new trail you speak of?
From the top of Summit chair to Guthega. You could always do it, but apparently now there is an actual trail to follow.
24/8/16 - 10:36pm
All the best Normo, hope you are back to it soon.
MarkGC: Had a touring afternoon heading over to Guthega via the Ridge. That new trail is great.
What is this new trail you speak of?

And so ends the night/can't beat karaoke at the smiggs pub
24/8/16 - 10:24pm
Mt P just before 2:30: towards close it looked like this, though this photo was taken at the top of wentworth. It was spitting rain at Bullocks flat when I left just before 6. Reasonably steady at the top of Pender Lea hill (3 c though). On and off till Cooma, then heavy rain from there to Canberra. Hopefully the temp is low enough for it to turn to snow and it goes to the hill.
24/8/16 - 10:16pm
Might have the base.... But the snow quality has been great this last week with the cold temps
24/8/16 - 10:06pm
Normo: The bruises are coming along nicely!
:eek:At least it's only bruises. A fellow I met two years ago suffered a similar injury at Guthega along with a couple of broken ribs.
24/8/16 - 9:56pm
kylep: If you are serious about the comfort thing, then you just haven't found the right helmet for you. There are so many different fits, it's a case of trying them all out until you find the right one. Classic case of buy what's right for you, not what's meant to be the best etc.
With the limited opportunities I have of actually getting to the snow I don't actually own anything yet apart from gloves and goggles. It's been from the hire shop everything time and probably explains why the helmet is such a crappy fit.
24/8/16 - 9:54pm
sara777: Oh poor poor Normo! It looks terrible! :cry:
It's just a flesh wound. Hmmm... Normo as the Black Knight?

Normo: The bruises are coming along nicely!
Oh! Take some time out to heal, Normo!
24/8/16 - 8:58pm
I'm glad to see you're still smiling at least Normo. Wait, which bit am I seeing ? Mate you take care with that. Severe hematoma all over.
