Tempting but I've done my midweek dash for a couple weeks. Hope you get some good weather - above the tree line - a nice calm day makes all the difference!! Oh cover looks /sounds pretty good since the 'semi-dump' this week!!

Hi all, I'm planning a day trip up to Stirling either Wed 25th or Thurs 26th of July, depending on conditions and commitments. I was wondering if anyone would be interesting in perhaps meeting up for a ski? I can offer a ride from Melbourne outer SE suburbs or somewhere along the way if necessary. Would be a good way to meet fellow XC/touring skiers if anyone is free. Let me know if interested. Cheers.:)

I spoke to a ranger today. He said they were skidoo grooming upper trails today. There's a few holes in usual places. Also said we can roughly ski above green signs but obviously can dodge any rocks easier up than down so you'd be a bit careful (slow) on the wAy down). As a btw; I'm thinking of heading up Wednesday - should be of the week and seemingly the 'best' day ova very, ordinary start to season if you want a xc day trip from Melbourne. Might see some of you up there! (Sorry to hear about the stack/injury Stridercdh!)

Timmossy: If you're looking for the first slide of the season then it will be worth it. It's about a 2km walk up Bluff Spur before you can clip you're skis on, from there you'll be able go all the way around to cricket pitch and a bit beyond before you'll have to unclip. With the showers on Merrijig today I'd assume there will be a bit of fresh too. Just don't go with the expectation of being able to get off the trails up top and putting some solid turns in without hitting a few rocks.
Thanks for that. Unfortunately I crashed my MTB today and still in a bit of pain. So I'll be resting up instead. Hopefully by next week I'll be healed and with any luck more snow will have fallen up there.

stridercdh: Has anybody been up to Mt Stirling in the last day or two? Any word on current conditions?
stridercdh: Thanks for the report. I'm considering heading up tomorrow while I have the chance. Is there enough snow to make it worthwhile, and from what point is the snow skiable? Cheers.

Dear Mt. Stirling .I am sorry but you are not delivering the goods in a timely and reliable way and I am going to have to go and get my B.C. snow fix elsewhere very soon. Please don't take it so hard. You know it has not been working out lately so it is best to be honest about this. I usually go to see you twice in July every year but that other mountain , the one with the pointy top , Mt. FeatherTop is going to deliver the goods if nowhere else does and despite the slog on foot to get up there, it is free to access and wild.

Timmossy: Was up there y'day, 20-30cm at the top, zilch at the car park. Enough snow for a bit of a cruise on the trails higher up but not deep enough in Stanleys / Dugout yet. If you want to get into the bowls the bushes are just covered but when you attempt to go for a turn you just break through into them snagging a rock on the way.

Team Weasel: Does this apply to the eastern facing aspects? I'd think that they should be better off than other faces. Desperately trying to avoid resort skiing this weekend.
The Eastern slopes of Mt. F.T. have too many exposed hazards for safe skiing or snow boarding at present and the cover is icy,patchy and melting. Crampons/Microspikes rather than snow shoes were my plan of attack on the summit at day break . Avalanche gully needs more snow cover for the game to be on. The vaunted winter snow cornice on the Eastern facing summit ridge has not begun to manifest itself clearly. . However I saw a photo of Fitzgerald's hut today as it looks now and there is by the look of the current cover enough to XC ski on out near Marum Point . The Summit area of Mt. Bogong would be the best bet, but what with these frosty clear nights my guess would be the snow cover would be icy boiler plate and not much chop for carving any lines on it in skis. From the top of Mt. F.T. ,I could see the BHP incl. the Fainters, Mt . Hotham and Mt Bogong all have/had some snow cover. The Razorback is a no go . High Knob is still brown!!. ( That is not an "Are you being served" type gag ;-P).In the distance Mt Howitt and Mt Buller had some snow on the top but one doubts it is anything substantial at this early juncture.

Mister Tee on snow shoes: I would wait until another big dump of snow. Even the upper slopes of Mt FT are looking patchy now and I was on the summit of Mt FT on Monday June 5th 2017 at dawn.
Thanks Mr Tee, good to know. Don't want to waste my time

Estonians eh.............I was wondering what the language was..........I think they show a paused timer for the trip at the end it's blurry but looks like 5hrs 10min and 12 sec for 27.78km.

stansi: Yeh, those Estonians know how to ski.
I wonder how long it would have taken them?
