Well, quite the break from the blog. 2013 was always going to be difficult. While I did manage to get out a fair bit, there was much more of this.

Nonetheless, the odd adventure did take place. Lets go back to October and my last day out skiing in 2013 with Holly. The week before Peter and I had scored some great late season snow off the back of Thredbo and I was keen to hit it again. There were lots of people around enjoying the spring conditions both inbounds and out in the BC. Getting ready in the car park I ran into both Darren and Skifree, regulars in the Australian BC.
We bought our cheap passes and got the lift up to Eagles Nest. The Basin was immaculately groomed and we couldn't resist bombing a few laps.
We hit the Summit Trail and made our way out to the Ramshead Range.

The snow was actually pretty fun and Holly and I spend some time laying turns.
Holly has really improved over the past couple of years and is really enjoying her skiing. What she isn’t enjoying is her heavy touring rig; Salomon Quests and Marker Tour F12 bindings. She has had really difficulties with heal lift in the quests causing some nasty blisters. Probably time we coughed up for a light Dynafit rig for her.
