Perisher 22nd of July 2010

This report is a bit late due to my computer finally giving up the ghost and insisted I reinstall everything. I started Thursday with a few runs with Baron Von Marlay and his delightful partner on front valley where we worked on our T-Stops. After we perfected the technique I joined up with Skifree and I had a jaunt down outer limits and a quick hike of Olympic. The snow was surprisingly good on Outer Limits, the base had consolidated and the light snow from earlier in the week had settled nicely. The cool conditions even kept the snow nice and dry and despite the rocks, twigs and bushes acting as natural slalom gates we had a great ski.
