There really hasn’t been much to report on the past week. A lack of snow falls of any significance hasn’t really changed the lie of the land.
The weather updates from Richard have been very interesting reading as have Jane’s tweets. Hopefully this front gets HV up and going. If the full 80cm comes through it would have to be go time on that part of the mountain.
The past couple of days have been a mix of clear sky and solid fog. The windchill has made it freezing. The cloud rolled in right on lunch time today. Visibility up top was not good and combined with the surface on the summit below the road was definitely the preferred option.
Last night the hill looked awesome with seemingly every fan gun pumping. The super low humidity helping the cause. Goes to show that if conditions are right there is no holding back.
It was the usual craziness on Slalom Gully today.
