Back from another incredible trip to Fairy Meadows. Exceptional powder skiing conditions (over 60cm of new snow fell over the week) in alpine bowls, steep trees and pillow lines, with picture book views, showing around and getting to know a fun loving bunch of weirdos from all over.
Since early December life has assumed the quality of ritual, almost entirely focused on powder skiing in my local mountains. Now I’m headed into Fairy Meadows for a week, with huge terrain and snowpack to explore, and multiple storms headed our way.
Just when the Christmas crowds seem to have tracked everything in sight, and El Niño snow pessimism was scratching at the door, the forecast has turned. Now calling for sustained cold temps and continuing episodes of snow over the next week. Bring it on.
