Quoting Stratus: how many runs did you get in with Steve?
I think 8-10? Not sure to be honest. Ski tracks says 10

Did a Steve lee back country tour this morning. One word. Amazing Will definitely do again Lots of nice pow stashes to be found and nice steep runs. Couple of quick park laps again this arvo and a run down Scott's/ruined snow is nice all over still

Snow depth could well be over 200cm by mid August, if Mother Nature continues her generousity

Planning a trip mid August, hopefully still good cover, pray for not too much rain.

Just back from a weekend trip and had a great time. Beautiful sunny weather and the most snow I've ever seen! Full cover over the entire mountain, every run is open - just great. Even the Maze had 100% cover, no rocks or nasties showing (and grooming on some of the Maze runs was excellent). Barring unseasonably warm weather or nasty rain events September will be excellent.

Express queue was pretty bad when it finally opened but understandable and lifties were efficient at getting people through. Was a really nice day once we were able to get out there! :)
19/7/14 - 4:09pm
Fex, Drovers, Lakeside, Towers all started loading just after 10....others followed during the morning as the really high winds abated until all lifts were operating by late morning. IMHO nothing was opened later this morning than it safely could have. Today was a fantastic ski on dry wind scoured snow under blue sky and sunshine. Pick of the day for me was The Ys.
19/7/14 - 2:27pm
Yep was going up but checked the weather station. Horrendous winds . Noticed that the snow report is from yesterday much easier than telling the truth ?

Late again with the report this morning :headbang: It was after 7:30 before they admitted that everything was on wind hold. We guessed anyway and did not go up. Looks like they have express, towers and drover's going now, hopefully more to follow. queues will be horrendous
18/7/14 - 11:12pm
But there were very few updates regarding the status of the lifts :headbang:. I got ready and found that lifts were on wind hold even though the 8.30 update indicated everything was open:tany::tany::tany::tany::tany:. Once Sun Valley opened it was fabulous in areas that weren't exposed

After my recent whinge about lack of current snow / road conditions being upgraded , I notice the last two day's reports have been done at 6.30am . As it should be.

Haha, not to worry, we'll be back out first thing tomorrow! Would rather use my lift ticket for a full day than few hours and our toboggan hire was free :p

Quoting Amelia1810: Express opened up about 1:15, heard Eagle and Summit had opened not much earlier. We decided to give the day a miss with only a few hours remaining and went for a toboggan instead lol.
Wow. Much mistake Very regret Seriously though, thanks, all the more stashes for me to find tomorrow! :) :thumbsup:

Wind was brutal up high (>100kph) with all lifts apart from Gully on windhold until 1pm. Snow terribly wind blown and scoured over the back....will all come up a treat after a groom tonight.

Yeah everything except Express looks on wind hold. Good for finding stashes tomorrow! :D

Quoting Amelia1810: Yep, everything on hold. Damn sucks, wish I was out skiing! Might go for a hike...
Ahhh, THAT's why the snowcams, lifts & terrain look pretty damn good - I was wondering where are all the snowriders, out in such good cover?! ..Windheld lifts. Once they open, enjoy, those that are there, looks awesome!
