Mt Piper Tour by Gerry Mahr

Filed under: Latest news,Shop News — MAC Team @ 12:54 am

The storms over the past two days had left 50-100cm of snow covering the mountains.  The sun was out and the mountains beckoned.  I took a few hours off from work in the middle of the day and drove to the Smiggins Holes car park where I geared up for a short trip up to Mt Piper.

Within minutes it was so hot that I had to remove hat, gloves and jacket.  I broke trail zigzagging to the top of Mt Piper, eyeing the untracked gentle slopes that I would be telemarking down on my return.  The snow was soft and had become a little heavy with all the sunshine.  However, the enjoyment was not diminished as the environment was magic.  The water crystals sparkled on the trees and the surrounding mountains were beautiful.  I look forward to my next two days off with anticipation.  I will definitely be skiing more of the back-country.
