Wednesday was the last listed day, but if your keen id suggest calling ski patrol and enquiring. Have to imagine there would have been a few that couldn't make the mid week days. The guys were super friendly and helpful!

Had some great skiing this season at Falls. So good to see inter in such good shape. The lift operators have clearly spent time instructing the lifties to to be be friendly and upbeat, very noticeable this season. Scanning system is fantastic worked fast every time, better than japanese version actually. Oversnow was good again, still has some work to do, the oversnow station is poorly signed and needs someone "on the floor" directing people. Clound nine still the pits.

Yeah, a pitch I could tele down yesterday was side slip territory this morning. A guy ahead of me hit the deck and slid for some distance. Off piste sure was nice in places; Boomerang was still untouched at 2.30.

Icey early, got first tracks down drovers, rolled through the park. liftees told me at the bottom they are going to close it till it softens (fair enough). Headed straight to summit and inter for the softening snow. Like a racetrack up top and softening down below by 9am, did enjoy. Had the BC awareness session out at Mt Mckay - great day for it.
We got to ride some amazing corn on the way back
Afterwards I couldn't resist some Rocky Knolls Corn

It was quite a mix of conditions this morning. Started wet windy and foggy and got better. The virgin corduroy was hydrolubed and quite fast. Off piste was sticky. A stiff breeze mandated skating to get across the ridge to Sun Valley and a tuck position to glide to the lift queues. By mid day the snow was gelato and the sun shining.

Quick Report. Dinner at the Man last night (not too bad). Picked up +1's and kids ski gear from Central Snowsports (friendly and helpful). Firm and icy in the morning with some of the runs with pushed around sugar later on. Before ski school Junior Polli and I did a couple of quick runs down Powderkeg. Then spent most of the day over at ruined castle and scotts lifts as well as Lakeside. Scotty's run wasn't groomed and a bit icy early on. Once the kids finished ski school headed down drovers to the terrain park with Junior Pollo. With sago starting to fall we ended up heading back to the bottom of the village. Sunscreen applied twice yet not enough.

Thursday we headed off up and out past Rocky Knolls, not a track to be found after the rain and light dusting early in the week. Only had a couple of runs but with the spring type conditions it was like carving thought soft butter.
Saturday was a solo mission and a play on my old board, forgot I was in my 40`s and hit the drovers terrain park....didn't last long, stacked it on a small rail and rolled around for a bit. Today 24-8-14 Again a solo mission but arrived nice and early to jump on international poma at 0830 and have half a dozen runs down zipper and widow maker before the crowds picked up and the rain started. head over to scotts and castle but ended up back at the poma for a bit of shelter. Gore tex.....new jacket, how amazing is the stuff.....just need some pants now. todays vid, actually had a lot of fun this morning....

Quoting BilbyBill: Is it my imagination that the web cams go down more often on a bad day?
If you are suggesting some sort of conspiracy theory then yes it is your imagination. There is probably some truth that they go down more during bad weather events as obviously there is more happening (rain, lightening, ice etc) that can affect coms. I have not been up higher than Howman's today but there were thunderstorms forecast and have heard some thunder....often lift coms are shut down as a preventative measure because of damage that can be caused by lightening strike.

Ah, so young and so cynical. It's probably just water in the electrical connections. The work experience student is sent out with an eye dropper.
