    Diamond was stunning even on my 67mm teach skis We did a few more laps below the Bookends Traverse in increasingly skied out snow and only moved away when we heard The Road to Provo was being opened After a great run down Last Choice we did a quick lap on the groomed Mark Malu Fork before finishing off the session in the Rasta Chutes The Canadian system is very simiar to ours just with a longer stance and quicker lead changes Salt Lake City from the top of Little Cloud American Fork Looking down the middle of the Rasta Chutes I expected a normal trip home on the 22nd however due to a booking stuff up I had shown up 60 hours early for my flight After I managed that task I had 10 hours to kill in Salt Lake City On my previous visit some 15 years earlier there was nothing to do other than to go look at the Temple but my phone found an activity for me the Natural History Museum on the University of Utah I ve always been a sucker for Dinosaurs The tram system in Salt Lake is great and two trams later I was at the Campus Wow they have a tonne of money the facilites were stunning I d hate to think how much it would cost to study there After the museum the nerd in me was satisfied so I explored the student accomodation an old Military base and I walked back to downtown found some suprisingly good street art and flew back on home A Park within the Student Accommodation at the U of U Student Accomodation An Anzac Bridge style pedestrian bridge Street Moose Nationalist street art Although this trip was so short I ve got more out

    was full of skidoos and I didn t have time to head out onto the main range so I drove up to Charlottes to have a look at Mt P International looked like a goer but I was wishing for more time when I got to the turning circle Mt Lee looked stunning The skin up Mt P involved a lot of breaking through crust so I expected an interesting ski back down The views from the top of Mt P were as good as ever and after calling up a couple of friends to boast I skied back down via the Hypertrail in what turned out to be some great patches of silky snow for the 1 st 100m The 2 nd hundred meters was very interesting breakable crust which was skiable just The bottom 50m had firmed up allowing for some pleasant turns to finish off the run The Valley Terminal Bridge Perisher surprisingly full of snow Mt Lee would have been the place to be Crusty deep skin track A lumpy Eyre Bowl An unprepared Eyre T Bar line The view from Mt P towards the Village The chairs are already on the double and the triple 1st turns for 2013 in Australia Turns on the top of the Hypertrail Lower down the Hypertrail Picking my way through the shrubberies I love skiing back to the car With some May turns under my belt I m a happy little chappy With Chairs on the double and triple already it looks like Perisher is hoping to have Towers open for the opening weekend If the weather is favourable I think they just might manage it Perisher Report Add new comment Your name E mail The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly

    boning around on the first steep section after the steps After Lunch I met up with Wildandfree for some fun on the dark side After a quick dash down front valley we headed straight for Farm Creek I managed to ski it in 2006 when there was less snow at Spencer s Ck than there currently is so I thought it should be possible The top was very thin in sections by we were rewarded with excellent corn through the trees Guthega was sweltering and felt more like spring than winter The snowpack reflected the warmth with lots of brown patches rocks and vegetation poking through the snow Thank god for snowmaking is all I can say Mt P from the Nordic Trails Front Valley Wentworth and Blaxland Thin at the top of the Quad Mt Northcote Mt Twynam Mt Tate Farm Ck was thin up high The trees were great Smallest snow bridge ever Link one is very thin Last run on Front Valley Hopefully the clear rain won t do too much damage and the snow forecast for next weekend results in a net gain Report Perisher Add new comment Your name E mail The content of this

  • A Shocking Day: Perisher Report 19/03/13 | Telemark Phat
    was flowing strong and high Front Valley had creeks running under and over the snow There were sheets of ice with water running over them Lifties were out in force with shovels and there were more surprise patches of grass and rocks than I ve seen since I was at school in the 90 s Hotham even lost all of their snow and had to shut for the day Enough babble some pics of the conditions below Looking north down Perisher Ck from the Ski Tube Bridge Looking north up Perisher Ck from the Ski Tube Bridge People retreaded from the rain early on Front Valley looking tragic Lifties maintaining the Wentworth T Bar track by hand Goat s Gully Looking towards Perisher Valley from the top of Goat s Gully I received some useful information to put the shocking conditions into perspective from Ken Green the alpine ecologist in Kosciuszko National Park As of yesterday the snow depth at Spencer s Creek was exactly the same 30 7 cm as it was on the same date in 1973 The years 1989 and 1991 were almost as bad However in terms of worse years since records began in 1954 there are only three on 18 July 1959 it was only 16 8 cm and on 15 July 1982 the worst year on record there was 29 2 On 19 July 1984 it was 27 8 yet that year peaked at 234 cm Here s hoping Without snowmaking even the skiing I got today wouldn t have been possible But as the record suggests it could still turn into an epic season Fingers crossed Report Perisher Add new comment Your name E mail The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly Homepage Subject Comment More

  • A poaching we will go: Perisher Report 20/07/13 | Telemark Phat
    so we expected big crowds we were not disappointed with up to 30 min waits all day We heard a rumour that the que on Happy Valley got to 90min But despite the crowds the snow was great and we had a ball for a few runs on Front Valley and Wentworth As the crowds arrived we decided to go a poaching at the Cleft The big waits at the Quad were worth it we were rewarded with up to knee deep snow all to ourselves Escapade looking much better The lifites were still hard at work though Lovely snow below Goat s Gully The que got much worse than this Goat s Gully in the sunshine My first run Freshies for Tony on his first day of the season We even found some serenity More Tony More me The Cleft before our last run Note the ques in the background We left behind fine signatures A delightful final stroll for the day A recovered and busy Front Valley We drove down the hill the snow had settled all the way down to the Poo Tube the surge tower and there was even a dusting at home Sadly Tony couldn

    Centre shortly after we drove through It took twice as long as normal to get up the hill but we still had time for another great breakfast at Aldo s We had a great morning on the hill as Viveka got used to her new NTN rig and the feeling of sliding on snow again We met some friends and had a long lunch and I went on my adventure to go poach Eyre or so I thought The previous night Perisher had announced the Mt P double and Triple would open but not Inter or Eyre thus my casual approach to freshies When I saw both lifts turning my heart sank the snow had been lovely and dry all day and it looked like I would be missing out on my freshies preferably of the first tracks variety I decided to head out to Shifty s and try my luck I couldn t have been luckier I got consistent thigh deep bottomless turns and I got three more runs of those turns before I had to head back and pick up Viveka I had sooo many funs I forgot about the camera until the end of the third run and during my fourth Normally this much wind would have delivered boot deep silky smooth turns but somehow instead there was 60cm to 80cm of light dry snow with a weak 5cm crust on top Front Valley Wentworth Sidewinder My turns from the road The top of my third last run The bottom of my last run I can t remember having more than two turns of thigh deep snow before in Australia today I got four runs of consistent bottomless thigh deep turns This snow was not much worse than the blower I skied in Utah in April And

  • I can't be Spring Yet: Perisher Report 31/07/2013 | Telemark Phat
    out Eyre At the start of the traverse we encountered some great corn and booted up The top 4 turns of Olympic must have been above an inversion because the snow became refrozen again quickly and stayed that way all day But those 4 turns were worth the effort We skied down to Sun Valley T Bar and enjoyed a late spring like T Bar track and had a run down Towers Towers had softened up and had some great slush bumps but the rocks were hard to dodge so we continued along to Eyre Wylie s was refrozen moguls and interesting to ski Being eternal optimists we headed out to Shifty s and found about 10 turns of lovely dust on grippy crust before bailing back to the base of Eyre After another lap on Olympic we had lunch and headed over to Blue Cow Pleasant Valley wasn t turning and leant a decidedly unpleasant atmosphere to the valley There were too many meadows and not enough snow We skied down to Summit and had two great runs on Accelerator The first was slushy and the second was just starting to refreze Meadows near the top of the Quad Tony walking along the top of Back Perisher to Olympic Meadows on Mt P Tony looking over Perisher and those darn meadows Me heading down Olympic Me down the bottom of Olympic Spring time t bar track on Sun Valley Wylie s was thin and hard Skifree in the bumps on Wylie s WildeandFree on Shifty s Tony on Shifty s Skifree on Shifty s Vista Tony on Olympic Pony ride is sitting a little high Me lovin the slush bumps on Accelerator WildeandFree on Accelerator Tony on Accelerator Lots of meadow at the top of Ridge It had better
