Sleet Geek 2006

There was an unfortunate turnout for Sleet Geek in that there was just me. There were a few people who where interested in coming along, but it just didn't turn out. All I can say is that you missed an awesome weekend on the snow.

Saturday started out with reasonably clear skies and Mt Perisher was the place to be. The cloud cover descended to the bottom of the mountain at lunchtime which made it fun getting off in a whiteout. I spent the rest of the day cruising down the run of the Blaxland T-Bar.

Sunday looked like a very dirty day. The cloud cover was thick and reasonably low. There was a decent wind and snow being blown around all day. I didn't bother with Mt Perisher because it was too closed in. I spent most of the day doing a circuit of the Quad to Mid Station, through the Terrain Park (with some very sore bruises), down Powder Ridge, up the Home Rope-Tow, across to and then up the Lawson T-Bar, down Goats Gully and back to the Quad. This was a fantastic run with great cover and powder and some good jumps and tabletops.
