In the middle of Australia’s storm of the decade at the moment. In addition to the constant snow last week, it’s snowed over 2 feet in the past 24 hours. Groomers are running almost constantly, keeping the track firm and fast. I drove down the mountain with some of the Australian’s yesterday in hopes of doing some running on the famous Mt Beauty single track and seeing some kangaroos. The trails were awesome, even though it was pouring rain and 40 degrees. The ‘roos must’ve been inside staying dry, because I didn’t see any.
It took us half an hour to dig out Callum’s truck before the trip (I want to get my hands on a Toyota Hilux). This picture was taken before the big snow storm! As the license plate says, Victoria is “The Place to Be.”
Kangaroo Hoppet Night Sprints under the lights on the alpine hill – tonight! Stay tuned. . .
