Sweet down there next month, so bit of time for some more coverage.

Off to Hutt Saturday morning for the weekend, gonna try pick up some early tracks. Talk of rain before the snow starts (expecting 15-20cm), but when you have been waiting this long to ride who cares, it will still be busy as hell I am certain. I will let you all know how it goes, maybe see some of you up there!!!!

Sounds like a decent start to the season for you guys. Excellent news! Hopefully it will go more wide spread and continue on through October.

Saturday was pretty dismal weather wise at Hutt but the coverage is fairly good and just great to be back on the mountain on a new deck. Sunday was a white out but they had had 15cm new snow overnight and then it snowed all day, had some great fun playing about off piste in the powder, not a bad start to the season at all.

Expecting nearly a metre of snow this week if the weather forecast stays on track, that is a big IF out here though...
