The cold arctic wind over the last few days brought a suprising 15cm+ to the mountains! A significant fall for this early in the year, although it’s very unlikely to stick, but hey – any snow is good snow! It will at least help cool the ground for when the real snow comes. & remember – dont believe the ski resort hype – they will all be claiming its a sign of a “bumper season” but there is no way of knowing that, only time will tell…

If you want to get the best value sliding this season, dont forget to buy yourself a Thredbo Card. $42 joining fee gets you $12 off a daily lift ticket & every 8 days you get a free day, so it’s perfect for the “weekend warrior”. Details on the Thredbo site.
