Over and out (’til 2013).
It was another warm one yesterday. Just about t-shirt weather. The snow is what you’d expect, softening up during the day. There were still some areas that were soft enough, not rock hard and not slush either. It was just a matter knowing where to look. There is absolutely no one up here either. It
With yet another Friday storm rolling through things were looking good again. Some of the forecasts for the amount of snow we were going to get were just downright fanciful. The temperatures in Melbourne and Adelaide were simply too high for anything but rain in the early stages of the front coming through. Thankfully, it
After Friday’s lovely storm skiing it was time to spend the weekend completing our Level 1 AST Avalanche Course. Quite frankly this course was long overdue for us given how much time we like to spend in potentially avalanche prone terrain. I’ve had an interest in the topic for a number of years and am
After yesterday’s rain and well needed day off it turned to snow in the late afternoon and by morning there was around 15cm of fresh. I got out just after the 7:30am opening of Heavenly and had a bunch of great runs in the new snow, mainly The Cornice into Snake Gully and also Purgatory

Nothing much has really changed since the last check in. A few nice days, a bit of snow here and there but nothing of any real note that sticks in your head as a great day out or missed. Been some days where it was pretty firm but yesterday was fantastic on the groomers. Particularly
Another warm one today, it was good to see the sun again after the bad weather we had for a while there but we could do with some fresh snow now. It’s very quiet out on the hill which is helping to keep things looking a bit better. Here are some pics from the hill
After taking a week or so off due to school holiday crowds and some ordinary weather things finally aligned to get out there again. The hill is still looking pretty good. It was pretty firm today thanks to the clear skies and low temps last night. The pick of the day was definitely Snake Gully.
