Quoting Scott No Mates: Yes Sadie, I was in that group. My kids were trying to make a 1m dia snowball and rolling it down the hill. They got a couple of metres. Did you end up climbing McKay? For our part, it was one of the best runs I've skied (kids loved it too).
LOL Yes I remember the snowball. Nah we did McKay a couple of weeks before. That was fun. Might do the Steve Lee thing next season.

Hi, We were just two fellows out hiking , no skis, no snow boards , with snow shoes strapped to our heavy "winter " packs.

Quoting Scott No Mates: We were in the morning group , we even rolled the skidoo ;) and got bogged going up Mt McKay
I am wondering if it was your group that we saw. We were the two snowboarders walking around. We stopped and had a chat to the group whilst they were waiting for a couple that they thought they had lost LOL

I was out camping/ hiking/snow shoe trekking at Roper's hut on 3,4/10/15. There were some skiers on the Johnston Hut side of Mt Nelse doing some turns . I spoke with them. They had a good report about Spion Kopje. It looked good to me. Don't wait for the road to open.Be quick because the snow out there is melting fast.

Had a great ski on Friday, fantastic for October. Definitely the best spring in a quite a while. Weird season, I can only recall 1 "dump" but there were constant top ups that meant we had good conditions most of the season (after the late start). depth, quality and weather: all go to make for good skiing. this year was another proof that depth is not the most important

Yes, was good. Had fun skiing the last three mornings.

Still plenty of fun turns to be had on the final day of lift operations today. The season never promised a lot but it delivered a heap. Late July and August was some great skiing. End of August when the first warm weather hit I expected the 1mt base to die in a hurry but it held on to deliver one of the best springs of skiing for a long time. Hopefully still a few weeks of backcountry turns to go.

Quoting soza: Same here, all finished for the season. Had a great weekend and stay down in beauty with some old friends, beers at sweetwater food at stockpot, can't beat it. Saturday was a top notch day on the mountain with perfect spring snow on and off groomers. It was one of our friends first times to the snow so OH joined her in a beginners ski lesson thanks to the BFF deal, both did well and it looks like I may have lost the Mrs to the dark side of hard boots and stick waving. Its been a great season, bit of a slow start but the strongest finish of the last three I have had here. I don't think I have had as many memorable days as last year but its been consistant and more than adequate......think I managed about 30 days all up. I didn't get to go snow shoeing this year but that's more down to not having a season pass and even though the alpine pass gave me a reduced day rate you still felt the urge to get your moneys worth rather than just using the lifts to access out back. I am hopeing to get up once the lifts stop and the road opens to camp and hike a few runs sometime in October.
We might see you out there. That is our plan too.

Quoting Scott No Mates: We're all done and dusted for the season too - went backcountry with Steve Lee on Saturday - biggest buzz and will definitely do it again now that I have seen it. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8e_QYiajKfiQVlmS1UtdWEwMGM

Well that's all folks...for us anyway. Its been a fun season. Yesterday was a nice sunny day but boy was it hard going after 12pm. We headed out back and dud some runs out there. Ran into the Steve Lee crew on one of our runs. Unfortunately the skidoo and trailer went into a bit of a hole and snapped one of the rear snowboards (skids) on the trailer. Could it have been the karma bus that hit them as they didn't offer us a lift out when their group wasn't full? ;) Riding down Ruined I almost went over the hangers a couple of times when I hit a glue patch. Days End was tough on a board. I was jiggling all the way to Wombats and then that was the slowest ride to Falls Express ever experienced. Sad it is over for us. We could go up next week, but won't.

Great day on the hill. Perfect weather. Snow held up really well until about 3. Had prime viewing position from chairlift - someone hit the big jumps at ruined hard and got waaaay backseat. Landed on his head. Seemed to be alright thankfully it looked as bad as it gets

Yesterday's snow was the worst that I have experienced for the season, it was poo. Anything with a bit of pitch was ok for some early turns but as soon as you hit any sort of run out the skis came to a abrupt halt. Temps have gone slightly negative overnight, hopefully enough to give it a bit of a freeze and form some crystalline structure.

I am heading up to FC for the last weekend of the FC season (2,3,4/10/15 ). I think I might find snow shoe action on Mt. Nelse .I will report back because if there is enough snow for a 'no toll booth fees' back country Bogong high plains trip in early October then that is good stuff.
