    up Shrubbery besides the Goat s Gully Ribbon Centre Valley is only Shrubbery The white ribbon is forming on Towers Goat s Gully On Sunday I headed straight to Blue Cow I had intended on spending a morning doing drills on early starter Whilst Early Starter had good cover it was pretty ribbony so I spent my time on Zali s once Summit opened Whilst Zali s was a ribbon as well it was in great nick early with grippy snow and surprisingly good grooming I moved onto doing loops of Lower Roller Coaster at 10 30 which was a real white ribbon of death and I called stumps for the day once the death hordes of intermediates arrived Patches were starting to appear at the top of Zali s on my last run Guns blazing over Blue Cow Mt Twynam The Early Starter ribbon Zali s Possum country is shrubbery The Terminal ribbon Lower Accelerator a bit patchy Upper Accelerator not much better The Lower Roller Coaster White Ribbon of Death Perisher has done an outstanding job getting so much of the Mountain Open with snow in such good nick Only 5 years ago we would still be skiing

  • A slow sore day down Watson's Ck: 11/10/2014 | Telemark Phat
    to Subsidiary Ridge I d had grand plan of booting back up Subsidiary Ridge and skiing back down before heading back The way out back onto the ridge was either dicey grass and scrub bashing rock scrambling or significant exposure Skifree went for the exposure and due to an awkward first move Katherine and I went for the steep grass After the adrenaline wore off I don t like climbing steep grass in tele boots I was exhausted and slow The snow cover was becoming isothermic with some pinwheeling and I had to half re kick each step With a more difficult climb and a lower constitution than expected Skifree beat me to the top by ½ an hour After a long lunch Skifree and Katherine had another quick ski from the top of Tennison Woods Knoll back into Watson s Ck while I took the lazy option and waited for them at the top of the Ck We then had a pleasant run back into the creek above Blue Lake and saw the leftovers of a wet slide on the way back to Soil Con Ck The Yellow Brick Road is starting to show itself Club Lake Cirque and Mt Lee still holding a decent amount of snow Katherine starting down Watson s Ck Skifree half way down the Ck Katherine shredding the bottom of the Ck Skifree on Subsidiary Ridge The Scimitar still had a very narrow skiable line Watson s Ck It was a long walk back up The Watson s Crags dogleg chute All of the Crags Townsend still looks skiable into Lake Albina Skifree skiing back into Watson s Ck Skifree Katherine A very Blue Blue Lake An old wet slide The day was a sore and frustrating one for me but still great fun

    again We hit the face just as the snow was beginning to soften which made the decent fun but still interesting and Katherine had a quick slide to shoo the snow snakes away After the run we had an interesting traverse across the bottom of the face through the Snowgum regrowth After a quick bite to eat we started the bootpack to the summit Tony and Chris got a sneaky run in while they waited for my slow arse to plod up the hill At the top we soaked in the views before hitting the main face The snow had corned up perfectly and we all ripped down the south east face of the Sentinel The Sentinel is such a stunning mountain and it is always great to ski such an attention grabbing line It was so good we rushed back up for another serving of ripe corn The Sentinel from the top of the Sentinel Ridge Just about to ski down from the ridge Me starting down the ridgeline to avoid the knife edge before the saddle Owain on the south face of the Sentinel Ridge Chris on the south face of the Sentinel Ridge Katherine s slide sorry for the bad exposure Chris s sneaky run Chris s transition shows off the nice slope on the south east Sentinel Face The first trip up the boot pack Chris s second taste of the south east face Once again we hit the long steep staircase Tony s third serve Chris dropping in Chris ripping Katherine lovin the corn Traversing boot packs suck Carruthers north face The boopack Spring has sprung Moonlit transition Katherine grass skiing Another day finished on Heartbreak Hill The slog home was as long as it always from the bottom of a Western Face but as

  • A long walk for two harvests: BC report 12/10/2013 | Telemark Phat
    Ck and the direct lines off Tenison Woods Knoll looked like they d finish before Watson s Ck so we skied the line furthest to the West Due to the cool breeze we had stunning corn and a long enough line to get the legs burning After a lunch stop we booted back up to Twynam South and had a quick run en route to Glissade Gully For the first time I got to ski towards water rather than ice since Blue Lake has started to thaw The corn on the top of Glissade Gully was suprisingly thick and sloughed easily but the rest of the run was once again perfect corn I lost a pole on the return crossing of the Snowy and ended up with wet feet tight buckling only goes so far Mt Clarke Blue Lake Kunama Bowl The long walk North Ramshead Etheridge and Kosci Townsend and the Abbotts Tenison Woods Knoll The Long walk is almost finished A view for a slash The view down Watson s Ck At our destination Tony dropping in Tony at the bottom of the first face Three turns in I am just lovin this corn harvest It carved so very well A great view for lunch Tony had first duties in stair kicking Then I had a go Tony finished off the job Our turns down the face The view west from Tenison Woods Knoll If you look closely you can see our lines Tony skiing down from Twynam South My turns Blue Lake The top and bottom of my run down Glissade Gully Tony After 15k travelled and 2000m vertical Tony and I had another brilliant day on the snow Report NSW BC Add new comment Your name E mail The content of this field is kept private
