Perisher 15th of September 2010

I started skiing at Smiggins this morning at about 9:30. The place was dead, there was no one anywhere, a story I would feel throughout the day. The cover is holding up better than it has in years, Blanchy’s has a couple of small patches, but the cover is almost complete. Snow made areas like Front Valley, Goats Gully and Towers have an excellent cover. The snow was firm and fast early and was starting to soften by 10:30 at Eyre. I had to leave at 12:00 so I decided I’d see what the snow was like on the east face of Mt Wheatley. It had turned to perfect corn, I had a blast and if it weren’t for my afternoon commitments I would have lapped it all day.

  Blanchy's getting patchy

If you like spring skiing with no crowds, or spring corn in the back country get down here for a ski right now.
