Announcements

Welcome to the end! And what a fitting morning to close out this season with a little fog and a light damp mist in the village. There is not much wind and the temp is above zero so the snow is soft. We have lost a fair bit of snow in the last 48 hrs and there are brown patches that were not there yesterday morning but there is still plenty of snow out there and it is definitely worth getting out for your final turns of the season. Although the weather has been a little testing at times this year the snow conditions have generally been really fun and I reckon all in all it has been a pretty good season. Any year that sees HV running from the start of the June school holidays until closing day isn't too bad.... and we had plenty of epic powder turns early on. I hope you scored your share of the great days. Have a beaut summer and see you all next year. Cheers Bill.

mr: razorback is surprisingly cooked pretty much right along, maybe just the big se face left on feathertop. huge meltage last 2 days. pretty impressed with how they kept heavenly going with aome judicious farming. interesting tho that system on wednesday could deliver......or wash it right out
Razorback usually does go before the closer sidecountry imo. More sun. Behind the bird around to dargo bowls hold better usually. Have ridden cup weekend once
