Cross Country lesson report

Filed under: Latest news,Shop News — MAC Team @ 11:28 pm

These images are of our ski lesson, instructed by Mike Edmondson, around the 5 km Nordic trail which was packed by machine.

Mike reports that “The 25 cm of new snow has provided a good base . We now need a top up to cover the odd rock, creek & grassy section. These were mainly on the downhills making them more challenging. Beautiful deep powder snow with little base on the lower elevations. The charlottes pass road from perisher would still be the best X-C skiing for Classic or skating around the resorts. The main range from Charlote Pass or Thredbo top station would have a better base but require good weather & more experienced skier- ideally go with a guide!”  Cheers Mike

XC skiing begins for 2010

Filed under: Latest news,Shop News — MAC Team @ 9:36 am

Today our instructor/guide Mike Edmondson took out a group of 6 enthusiastic skiers for a half day Cross Country lesson at Perisher and came back with some great news about last nights snow falls and here are the photos to prove it!

“Great 30cm of new snow makes for some great cross country skiing up the road from perisher to charlottes pass. Whether you are skating or touring this road provided the best cross country skiing in the perisher are till we get more snow & the Nordic trails are fully groomed.”

   

Perisher Range XC Update

Filed under: Latest news,Shop News — MAC Team @ 1:33 am

Now it looks like winter!  It is properly cold (-4) and clear with a crisp moderate wind and a gorgeous blanket of snow over everything.

 The trails area has approximately 20-25 cm of drifted snow with large amounts collected behind the snowfences.  The early wet snow has made a great base under new dry, windpacked snow. 

 The trails will be inspected today and if the cover is sufficient they will be packed and prepared for grooming.  Note, even if they are packed today, they won’t be trackset and finely finished until subsequent grooms.

 But don’t wait for the tracks to be set.  You will be able to tour most anywhere.  Watch for all of the usual hazards of limited snow depth, but it will be a beautiful day to be out there.
