We had a few hours on the slopes yesterday, ended up been a super mellow fun day in great conditions. We mostly hung out around towers as main street was skiing real nice and you were straight on the lift.

Another great spring day with lots of sunshine and freshies. There was a photo shoot for Snowga at the top of Towers this morning.

Took the gamble and went up yesterday. Nice day, road uncovered almost to the Nordic Bowl but enough snow for our first timer after that. She had a good day getting used to skis and is feeling confident to do it again next season. Thank you for the +ve encouragement it was the right call, the snow reports alone would have kept us at home.

It's pelting down big fluffy flakes & wet ones but isn't being reflected in the BOM. Temps aren't that low ATM either.

hongomania: South face is my pick today. Still groomed to perfection at 330pm
Had a few runs down south face until the last lift - was probably the pick of the day here too. A bit of sago settling on the roof of Halleys lodge with intermittent snow showers.

Nice return to winter conditions. Rugged up and enjoying the cold. Snow is nice and firm underneath with a nice soft top layer.

slotele: I'm thinking about a day trip on Monday to take a first timer up for an intro to telemarking. Nordic bowl and other gentle south side trails. From the cams and Weerab's report from last Tuesday, it looks like that would work. Enough snow for that modest goal?
I hope so, it was raining when I left Mt Beauty on Wednesday. Hopefully someone at Falls can help. The Nordic bowl did not have full cover last Tuesday but you should be ABLE TO FIND SOME SOUTH FACING SLOPES.

We are trekking up the fire trails from Bogong village to the Fainters. I am taking all my white season gear except the ice axe. I think this snow season will have enough left in it to make it to the closing day .

I thought it sounded odd, Falls has events scheduled to 4th October
22/9/16 - 7:55pm
Slide Sideways: Just heard on the radio this weekend will be the final weekend of season 2016. Is this correct?
Don't think so....2nd October for Falls. Hotham closes this weekend I think.
