2019 - NZ and Oz

It begins.

A season starter system is rolling through south eastern Australia as I type.
I'll be spending 4 days at Thredbo in the second week of August. Historically that time frame offers the best conditions here with the base established and winter conditions still prevailing.
Here's hoping.

So both the Vail resort (Perisher) and the Ikon Resort (Thredbo) along with a couple in Victoria will be opening tomorrow.

It's apparently the "best start to a season since 2000".
Cool temps that will allow snowmaking and a follow up system in a couple of days should ensure this base sticks around - at least on the groomers.
