Perisher Valley 09th of July 2009

The morning was beautiful, still crisp and not a cloud in the sky at Perisher. Unusually the Village Idiot appeared to be broken and didn’t start running until I headed over to the cross country trails to teach a nordic lesson. The groomers on front valley and in centre valley were great and I'm sure the skiing on any groomed run at Perisher would have been perfect this morning. I only skied for an hour today to practice some of the racing techniques I learnt last weekend with the masters’ racers. The falling down the hill technique feels great on telemark equipment.

The trail to Blue Cow has been built. Great for this early in the winter
Clouds in the Distance

The forecast is for lousy weather on the weekend. I hope the full moon effect wil bring an unexpected dump (fingers crossed).
