On Wednesday evening this week the STSA volunteer committee that run the Mt Mawson Ski Field met to discuss the work program for this Summer, and to hear an update on progress towards construction of the new day shelter and ski patrol facility at Mt Mawson. Expect to see some more action on site very soon!
As is always the case there is a long list of tasks to do to keep the ski field in good operating order, and volunteer helpers are always welcome. The first working bee for this summer will be held this Sunday 25th February – if you would like to assist please be at the Lake Dobson gate at 10:00 am. The weather is forecast to be cold and showery but that will not put us off!
One of the tasks we have to tackle is to repair a series of snow fence panels at the top of the Mawson run that were broken by the large weight of snow on them in the excellent 2017 season. It was great to have the snow, but now we have some repair work to do to get ready for the 2018 winter…..
As we get closer to moving into the new facility we will continue to remove any redundant old equipment and materials from the mountain, including the old tow rope from the University tow which was replaced last season. And for those with carpentry skills there are some repairs to be made to the Rodway tow hut…..
If you are unable to make the working bee this weekend, note that future working bees are scheduled for the 24-25 March, and 28-29 April.
