Surface Condition

There is a great cover of snow right across the mountain. After a freshen from the snowmakers and the groomers, the snow was in top shape. The groomed around Central Spur, Supertrail and Cruiser and the off-piste around Karels a standout. The snow did get heavy going on the lower part of the mountain.

Skiing & Boarding

We are enjoying a top day of top to bottom skiing and boarding. Some of today's favourites: more advanced, ripping into the early groomed on the Supertrail, World Cup especially nice. Then over to Alberts Amble off Antons - hands down winner today. The Cruiser was so much fun for intermediate riders - the ridercross at Playground a blast. Good times at the Basin on the groomed. Friday Flat was buzzing with beginners and first timers. A fun day all round.

benchives: How is Thredbo advertising whistler as part of the mountain collective even though vail bought it? Or is it just timing?
Whistler will come into the Vail / epic pass for the 17/18 season. Til then I understand it will remain as a Mountain Collective destination. That's worth checking before you commit to a trip though.

Reminds me of some late season decents from CP to the stepping stones when the drifts run out.

DbSki: Wasn't a fair fight, but makes me wonder what the two 15yo's might have said that ended in getting beat.
Apparently, the two 100kg 15yo were telling them to fuck off or they would kick the car in for wanting the park. After a lap and another try, they said it again. When someone got out of the car, one of the teenagers started punching the driver still in the car. Then they got bashed. The two teens involved are foul mouthed lying little bastards that started the fight then lied to police. Apparently.

I think I read that Whistler is still honouring MC passes this winter.

nfip: Yep was great to ski there again. Love the place to bits But ... ranty rant ...I don't see many race's at all but their course management seems to be not near as ...diligent as "others ". D15 can't remember last State due to concussion from riding onto grass and rocks middle & bottom of roll-over.... There where a rather high % amount of wash outs / falls again in both events don't you think ? Maybe just me being critical from several past experiences , and I do understand same track for all. Having said that their lifties absolutely shite all over "others" for skill and attitude. IMO.
Rossi always gets rutted and the course was really tight. I remember mine racing on it as a 10yr old and it was good back then. In the past few years, it's caused way more falls than you would expect. My kid loved the BX course, and the surprise at preso was the result ;) I heard of a girl doing her knee on the Merritts BX course purely due to the ruts after the finish. The slopestyle course was awesome. I think (after many years of this) Perisher race club runs a tighter event, the courses are set correctly, fences are where they should be, staff act quickly when required. But the Perisher timing needs binning and replacing.

northsail: Not a horrified look, just a raised eyebrow. I do have an image of Gareth yelling "just snowplough!" as his friends careen out of control at the bottom of Friday Flat.

skichic: We were on Rossi today. For a purpose built racecourse geez it gets rutted quickly. Lots of falls. Anyway that's states done for us. Kid brought home some medals, made it to nationals so all good. Had a great time skiing Thredders this time. Really enjoyed it.

Nice day treking from Kosi chair to Ramshead and leather barrel ck. Great snow in the bowls under Nth Ramshead returned via Sig hill and supertrail. Was getting sugary in the resort but not too bad for late August.

AJS: My friend and I were up at 5:30am for the 7am Greyhound from Syd, we're just past Bredbo now, so excited! Staying until Mon afternoon. By the way, cannot recommend the Syd - snow Greyhound enough, the bus has been smooth and quiet, toilet is clean and well set up and every person has 2 seats to themselves with empty rows remaining. Stopped by CBR airport too for any Mel/Bri connections. The drive down is easy, but this will really be worth it on the way home (when the tired drive home is such a punish), fingers crossed will be just as many spare seats. Having a quiet beer now while my friend naps :)
if you are near Friday Flats on Saturday afternoon, keep an eye out for me. jacket and beanie as per my profile pic, plus bright yellow pants. I'll be showing 4 beginners the very basics of level 1 skiing before their proper lessons start on Sunday (lets see how much I can screw them up!!)

PMG: The last weekend in August is traditionally the busiest weekend of the season imo.
is that because a lot of places kick in their shoulder priced accommodation?
