Memorials

This is just a quickie report as so much has been happening over the past few days.

On Saturday night there was a special memorial for George Freuden, who passed away earlier this year. A large number of flare-runners presented a huge flare run, followed by a spectacular fireworks display. You can read more about George's amazing life at: http://www.thredboskipatrol.org.au/vale-george-freunden/

Today (Tuesday) it was Memorial Race day and the theme was James Bond. Unfortunately I had work commitments but I managed to get some snappies before going off to work.

Thursday is Ski Patrol Race day - to help raise funds for the Thredbo Ski Patrol - 10am Rosi Race Course - with sausage sangers and drinks following.

Snow conditions are still good. There has been a little more snow making when conditions allowed. Temps remain low but lower slopes are getting sugary after a few hours.

There is some snow forecast for Thursday :-)

My next report will cover the back country tour I did yesterday.
