Happy Auzzie Day
Yesterday was the national holiday of our Australian friends. Good on ya, mate.
After a week of bitter colder, with morning temperatures below -20c, things finally warmed up for Saturday with the temperatures just a couple of degrees below freezing. Despite the lack of real snow for the past week & the brutal temperatures, or maybe because of them, the quality of the surface was very good. Packed powder & very little ice all of which made of easy edging.
There’s been another 20 cms on the hill over night Saturday, so, if everything isn't closed today, it should be excellent skiing.
I leave you with a few pictures from yesterday’s Cardboard Derby, where all manner of craft made out of card board, glue & duct tape compete to hit the bullseye at the bottom of the slope.
