I'd like to get my son to come up on a ride in the snow again. See pic on previous page.
I wouldn't mind doing the same ride again, if there's snow at the top.

Amen! Been out to both Falls and Buller already this season - it's passable but only on man made cover at the moment. Waiting for some decent dumps to go back country!

In Sydney this weekend. Going to see Arsenal.
There's no snow anyway. It can't be a snow ride without snow.

I'll believe it when I see it hit the ground baudman.

Mountainwatch forecast 23cm for last Friday at Falls. Ended up with wind hold on a few of the lifts, no visibility and a paltry 4cm... Saturday was superb with low wind and great visibility all day! :D

Reports suggest that there was a spattering on Donna on Friday

Not enough to justify busting out the fatty

Plenty of snow. Tweaked my knee on Saturday's ride so decided to heal up instead :(
I was told it was an absolute shitfight with day tripper traffic so maybe that was a good thing.

When we did it we went via Don Rd. You don't join the main road until the last bit to the lookout tower. But it is unsealed for most of the way.

I'd love to do it before the snow disappears. But I'm heading overseas on Friday so not sure if I'll find the time this week.
I expect the snow will be long gone by the time I'm back.
