Grooming Summary

Cross Country Trails

All Local Trails Groomed plus Heathy Spur, Two Paul's and the Sun Valley Loop.
The few centimetres of fresh snow last night although wet blended nicely with the spring snow we had. Heathy Spur still has the best quality and driest snow on the groomed trails.
Two Paul's also has nice snow but there is a negative camber on some sections and the snow depth is too shallow to bench it out to get the skating bed flat at this time.
Please note that we now have spring conditions with the usual Melt/Freeze cycle. The groomer will be heading out mid afternoon to groom outer trails while they are soft and will benefit from the overnight freeze,. If you see fresh grooming passes in the mid to late afternoon please stay clear as any skier tracks on fresh grooming will freeze and spoil the finish for the next morning skiers...thank you.

Road Condition

Road open and clear beware icy patches

We are up again Saturday and Sunday. The next two weekends are out for us :( Hopefully there is still something hanging around after that.

Ruined castle and the summit opened after lunch so we had a full day of riding freshies. Darkside to sundown provided a full morning of clean lines then we moved out to big D and southface. Roads in the village have been cleared so it looks like the end of over snow for the year. Cover on sun valley is excellent, better than this time last year so plenty of days left in the season.

Quoting soza: Staying on the mountain this week and after 3 bluebird days today feels like winter again. About 5-10 cm on the road outside cedarwood this morning. Lots more in catchments over the back. The bowl is on wind hold and Scotty is on snail pace with 40kmh southerly winds but its so worth it. Hardly anyone around and cloud seems to be lifting....I have just popped back for the hip flask and will get back amongst it.
Lucky b@stard! Have fun!

Quoting Hully: Super day of spring skiing yesterday across both sides of the hill. By that I mean, put some thought as to where you ski and when and every run is fantastic. FCRM yesterday described it as a morning of 'icy groomers'.....I'm call bulls@*t, learn to ski. Tired of what seems to have become a 'two speed' description of snow - it's either powder or ice. People need to work on their technique so that they can ski all conditions and enjoy it.
And another day ripping on the NTN gear . ;)

We took yesterday to actually work on our technique down Ruined. We tend to stay away from there normally but it was really nice snow and so we were working on sharpening up our turns. Then this happened...

Ow ASB, thats sad news. Wishing you a speeding recovery. Yes, today was super. Took it pretty easy after yesterdays hike. Did a few runs down Scotts and Ruined Arsehole then went down the Y's, a run down International and then stupidly did The Maze. Top was nice but the bottom of Roller Coaster or Black and Blue (no idea which one we ended up in) was goorrrnnneeee. Skiers had to take skis off but we managed to find the smallest strip to get around. Yuck. We ended the day with a run through our secret stash which was untouched and made our way to Elk where we are staying tonight and tomorrow. Goggle tan is in full swing.

I was very happy with the skiing on Saturday, great cover and not overly crowded, had a lot of fun until about 3pm when I went down Wishing well and found the lower section chopped up to buggery. Unfortunately I fell and tore my calf muscle badly. So that's it for 2015, very short season for me I only got to ski two days on my 6 day pass as I was OS most of August. Have fun everyone and stay safe.

Not a lot to say.....today was awesome spring skiing. I know it is still technically winter but I'll take it. ripped turns all day on my NTN great. ?

Quoting currawong: :tany: couldn't get up there today but it looked like great
have cause for a tanty. I'm bleeding apoplectic :mad: Got two weeks out of the Hero and All Resorts Entry passes. At least I didn't shell out for a move to NTN. Sigh. What am I doing reading these forums.

I was hoping to see some footage from the recent competitions, especially the Night Rambler comp. Is there any reason that it is hard to find?

Great day yesterday and not so shabby today either. Sad to see that the level of snow has dropped a bit. Still great cover though except down lower. Went for a nice hike out today. Beautiful snow out back.

Not as busy as i feared. Pretty solid early, a bit dust on crust, but quite skiable. Some very nice off-piste if you were prepared to work for it. Stayed remarkably good despite the sun - softened but not slush.

Yep today was full of surprises. After watching the cams and reading the weather thread for 5 days I didn't expect such perfect conditions. Some obvious damage down low due to the rain and I felt my heart sink riding up FX after 5 days away but the otherside is holding up really well with RC my pick of the day.

Quoting Hully: A fantastic day of skiing today. Firm and fast early but softened enough quite quickly for the off piste to be great. Good skiing could be found on all aspects of the mountain. Weather and visibility were great.
