Oct 11th - skied Craigieburn with grum, see earlier report
Oct 12th - I stayed overnight on the mountain. Woke to the sound of rain about 8am, so stayed in bed. About 8:30 it turned to snow. Snow was wet and heavy on a firm base, so plenty of slide potential. They let us up the slopes at 11am. Still snowing, poor visibility, but who cares, we had about 10 - 15 cm of fresh snow that was really easy to ski. Only about 20 of us ventured up the mountain for the day so plenty of fresh tracks ALL DAY LONG [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]
Snow turned to sleet/rain later in the afternoon, got completely soaked but it was not cold, so not concerned about being a bit damp when you have a change of clothes in the car, and there are still fresh tracks to be had.
Who needs heli-skiing when you only have to share two massive alpine bowls with 20 others, all for $42 NZD.
That was my last weekend for the season, only 100 more sleeps until I arrive in Utah, but hey, who's counting.
