Got upto to the ski fields on the weekend and while it rained on Friday arfternoon, that eventually turned to snow, bringing 10 cm of fresh cover for Saturday morning. However, discovered on arrival in Jindy that there had been a sewage leak into the local water supply and so everyone was buying up bottled water (take that Bundanoon). Also ran into Triple J’s Lindsey “the Doctor” McDougal at a Jindabyne pizza joint, where he was very politely bringing back a vegan pizza because it had cheese on it.
Saturday was the pick of the weekend with fresh snow, low winds, and sunny skies. Sunday saw the winds increasing and some lifts shut around Perisher. When the lifts close, the limited space starts to get very crowded and those hooligan snowboarders start lining up to run into you. So it was time to wander over to Tube Town and have a play away from the masses.
The weather yesterday and today should have brought in a good dump of new snow, lets just hope that the strong winds doesn’t blow it all away again. In my uneducated opinion, if the winds drop off Thursday and Friday could be some of the best days of the season so if you have the chance to sneak away, go for it.
Also saw the coolest little snow buggy around.
