We look like having a really big dump in NSW in the next few days. Desperately need it to get all the lifts open.

I did my first day of the season today at Remarks. It was raining so most kept away, with chains we got a 2nd row park at 8:40. At lunch it started to clear up and I found some pow stashes later in the afternoon.

How is the depth and coverage there?
Dunno what it's usually like down there but it seemed pretty good. Once the vis improved it was an awesome day. Off the groomers there was a lot of powder and not many people riding it.

I'm used to riding Ruapehu which only gets good at 1.5m of base, but that's a rocky mountain. You don't need as much base down here where it's just tussock grass.

I see you have a few of these Hybrid chair lifts in NZ that have both Gondola's and chairs on the same line.

I had a long weekend down at Perisher last week, there was not much open but the crowds were low so many laps were had. On the Friday night we got a little over 15cm which made the conditions on Saturday really good and I was riding my new board.
I had planned to go splitboarding on the Monday but my mate was not feeling well. Next trip is end of July.

Awesome, what new board did you end up with?

I sold my Arbor Terrapin after riding it once in Japan, replaced it with a Capita Outerspace Living. Kind of meant to be a do everything board I can use as a second board in Japan alongside a dedicated powder board and just general all mountain and a bit of park riding back home in Aus.

Really like the OSL so put my Capita Springbreak twin up for sale now, hoping to replace that with a Korua Dart 160.

70cm's overnight at Perisher?!?!?! Craig, when are you going???

Damn. Vic resorts are looking pretty woeful at the moment. Thinking about getting snowshoes + poles and hiking whatever stash is left (can't justify a decent splitboard setup, $$$ wise that's my adjustable suspension for the Polo).

I ended up putting a deposit on the 156 Dart in Jindy, picking it up on my next trip at the end of the month, price was too good to resist.
I actually phoned up Twelveboardstore first as they were having a big sale but hadn't reduced the price on the Dart 160 I wanted. Anyway the best price they could do was still $150 more expensive than what I paid for the 156.
