Yes It Does Snow in Australia

So over the last week our resorts in Australia got pounded with a bunch of snow, more snow than we have seen all year, luckily Burton was holding demo days and contests at Mt Buller (SC/TC fave resort here in OZ). Friday I(SC) got to go up early for meetings which ended around lunchtime which meant there was powder (well pretty close too) to be ridden.

Here is Katrina from Burton australia coming down a newly found tree run at Mt Buller.

Late Friday night TC came up to make the weekend Perfect ! Of Course we put her to work at the demo tent, but later in the day we did get to do some runs.

Here is a shot of SC/TC boards on the lift

On sunday afternoon we all got to do some more runs (although the demo has taken its toll)

This is Monk she was practicing her methods, Monk rips

Monday was a free day of riding with everyone from work, unfortunately TC had to go back and work in melbourne so it wasnt as great as it could be. We also had to leave early to drive Coco Boadle, Desmond Solway and Katrina to the airport so they could fly back up to the home of KSubi (Jean label from sydney) and Lattes :) As they where missing the sydney life.

Heres a shot from monday from the emirates chair at Mt Buller, there was a pretty serious hip on this run that Monk(see photo above) showed who was boss.

Before we left we got one last run down the home trail which is the longest run on the hill which ends right in the carpark.
