A Flash of Sun

The second weekend of the ski season in Southern Tasmania is well underway at Mt Mawson with excellent snow conditions still present after last weekend’s big blizzard. Whilst it was raining in the morning in Hobart Mt Mawson remained dry all day, and a good crowd of enthusiastic skiers and boarders made the most of the conditions.

Unfortunately the mist was down for much of the day, reducing visibility, but those that stayed to the end of the day were rewarded with a brief flash of sun, and excellent visibility and snow conditions for the last runs of the day. Oldina Ski Club kept the tows running till 4:15, and with excellent snow conditions and no queues it was great skiing as the afternoon light turned golden.

The ski tows will be operating again tomorrow from 10 am (Sunday 19 June 2022) with light winds and maybe even some sunshine. Come on up for a (near) winter solstice ski while the snow is still here!
