yes finally got around to logging.

pretty av. day really so don't be jealous.

forecast was looking crap for this day, snow all weekend and Mt closed due to high winds over weekend.

Call was made to go for an overnight.

Weather cleared way faster than expected!!! freshies overnight and made it to 6-seater as they just opened it, to the top, 12th chair up. Was a frenzy trying to put bindings on as fast as we could to cut some fresh tracks!!!

probably cutting fresh tracks for half a day on both sides of the chair, until everyone had been everywhere.

Snow was so hard to walk in as it was more like 30cm (up to my shoulder when I put my arm in!) = more confidence; nailed some 3s and tried some more endo fwd spins off natural features...

Saw heaps of ppl go to the top (for an epic ride down, I could just see their tracks!), might have to do that walk one day!

best day in last 2 seasons for me! mean day.

might have some low quality vid and photos later.

2 thumbs up!

and day topped off by beer, burger and chips @ the keg, then a spa at station lodge (the best little backpacker style lodge up there).

I did a summit run one awesome pow day when I was working up there.... Very very hard work hiking in the kinda snow. And the alt further up makes things slow, took a couple of hrs to get close to the top and had to take turns on point.

Run down was epic fast maybe 5 turns before we reached the top t bar....
