robbo mcs: Whats the condition of the road like between Cabramurra and Khancoban? I haven't been down there for a few years and was thinking about doing it on my bike.
Val and I hadn't done it for some years either, so I wasn't quite sure how it would be for my learner kids driving it - other than I reckoned it would be a good learning experience for them anyway. Turned out the road surface is good all the way around, no unpaved or otherwise wrecked areas I can think of and the day we drove through we passed two separate crews doing mowing and whipper-snipping of the sides of the road. There is one automated stop/go traffic light in the middle of nowhere, but I think it is timed rather than detecting vehicles. Also I can't remember if the couple of single-lane dam walls the road crosses have a footpath if you don't want to risk potentially playing chicken with car or truck drivers when on your bike. There would be the ever-present danger of Snowy Hydro vehicles (and sundry people shaking out their sports cars) fanging around that road and not expecting a bicycle too. I reckon also you'd be pretty wrung out by the time you got to Khancoban, so I reckon you'd want an overnight stop there before heading around the Alpine Way and back to Jindy. In answer to your possible follow-up question, the Alpine Way surface is pretty good and been recently re-done in some parts too. The risk of being hit by someone not expecting your bicycle would be higher though just because there is more traffic than between Cabramurra and Khancoban. (note: there was resurfacing - totally ripping up the road and re-laying it - on the Snowy Mountains Highway between the Mt Selwyn turnoff and Yarrangobilly Caves; if they are continuing that through other areas of the road, expect up to 1/2 hour waits and an escort vehicle through the sections being re-made - we copped that both to and from the Caves, which together ended up putting us an hour behind schedule to get to Jindy in time for the 8:30pm movie session - and hence me driving from Khancoban to Jindy rather than one of the L-platers ).

I've done the road from Kiandra to Cabramurra, which is in good condition, but my memory seems to tell me that the road further on to Khancoban is not in as good condition?

Re Normos carpet......found one in Italy that was only being used by folks without skis. Could not resist getting a shot

The Sun Valley blasting and rock removal was post 2016 Season. I noted it while touring about after the resort closed.
Ted Harper: Looking down the quad to the top of Pretty Valley double (which may by now have finally offloaded all the skiers from the 2016 season), mid-station roof, front valley and main carpark in the distance.
Similar view to above, but also picking up Piper T-bar (in middle-distance to the left)
Looking up Sun Valley to Mt P from Happy Valley just below mid-station
No Eyre Burgers for you :(
My twins thinking it can't be _all_ that long before Eyre opens...
Final random notes: * the Ski Tube terminal is unlocked and automatic doors operating, the downstairs toilets there are open, as is the small cafe at the Hans Oversnow end of the main level (Mon-Fri 0900-1400). * lots of lift (mechanical and painting) maintenance was being done - we saw at least 4 separate teams on different lifts during our walk, and lots of resort staff around in general - but no sign of any major new capital works underway yet in either Perisher or Smiggins. * I think the earthworks that the diggers (etc) seen on the Happy Valley camera a couple of months ago were working on might be up near the top of Leichardt terrain park. I could see some disturbed ground there from the road above the Mt P chairs, but didn't walk over to look when I was up near the top of Leichardt and didn't take a photo. There may also be some freshly-blasted rock above the top of Sun Valley T, but I don't remember if that was done previously or is new since last winter.

Earlier this week I took my L-plater twins down to my caravan in Berridale for a couple of days of highway/winding/unsealed/etc driving practice and among other things we went up to Perisher and walked to the top of the quad and back. (Pro-tip: the drive from Yarrangobilly Caves via Cabramurra to Khancoban is a good but demanding one for a nearly-ready-to-get-their-licence learner, especially in a manual car, but would be terrifying for a beginner one) Anyway, some photos... Berridale pool (it was ridiculously hot on Monday, barely dropped below 30C on Monday night)

There was snow covering part of the Kosi track from Thredbo the other day. Only about 2km up from the top of the chair. And I spotted a boarder doing runs down a drift just above the top T-bars.

Well it is now 2017, and I can report there is still snow on the ground at Perisher Which is quite unusual. There is also a significant amount of snow on the main range, much more than usual. The last few years there have just been a few tiny patches on the range, but this year there are still significant collections and cornices along the ridge of the main range, around blue lake, kossy, carruthers and twynam. I suspect there still be some snow on the range until mid february Usually the last bit to go at perisher is around olympic, and there is still some there, but the biggest collection is on back perisher, off to the right of the quad below where the traverse to blue cow runs Here is back perisher
And olympic
Here is part of the main range

skichic: Failing that, get them to drive you to Thredbo and sample the burgers at The Burger Bar. You won't be disappointed. You could send him a message https://www.facebook.com/alpine.eyre?fref=ts
Thanks, likely will do Thredbo one day, Perisher another, Yarrangobilly Caves another, Merimbula another. From my van in Berridale they are all pretty good drives for learner drivers, and the kids will get some sort of reward/activity at the end of each, rather than it being just a drive for the sake of driving (which I don't really enjoy - and that has a lot to do with them both being behind schedule on getting through their required hours in a year). BTW I would message Steve on Facebook but I have no Facebook. I'm just not that social (this forum and Whirlpool notwithstanding) ;)
19/12/16 - 6:41pm
Ted Harper: A small favour please... If anyone is at Eyre cafe over the Christmas period can they please ask Steve what his planned days for opening over the rest of the school holidays are (i.e. Weekends only or any day the weather is ok). I will likely take my L-plater twins down for some driving at some stage in January and they both love Eyre Burgers so it would be good to reward them with one on whichever day they drive me up the hill to Perisher.

Really is such a positive for Jindy to draw upon. Just the little things you notice can , and do , mean so much.

robbo mcs: Came back to town early. I noticed someone has made an addition to the sculpture on kosciuszko road. I think he looks pretty good carrying a set of skis;)

IAB: Were you being watched robbo? Check out the tree stump to the left (oops, I mean right) of the hut. o_O
The tree goblins have woken from winter hibernation and are following me :eek:

Legs Akimbo: Or to do some more work on left and right.
Well that's just embarrassing.

IAB: To my (possibly overactive) imagination it looks like a face in the middle of the tree stump. Perhaps I need stronger glasses.
