what a great way to start the season

Hughie turned on some snow, the lift co made a bit more, the sun came out and we had a beautiful new lodge full of fun people to celebrate with.

Towers was running, with good skiing on Main Street, Highway 83, NASTAR and under the chair. Wombats had good cover all the way to the bottom too - fantastic conditions for opening weekend. Most people got out for a few turns at some stage over the weekend.

This year though the highlight was the function to mark the completion of the lodge  redevelopment and the granting of a 50 year lease.

Some frocked up, others took a more light-hearted approach

We watched the fireworks in the bowl from the comfort of the lodge or balcony.

Then to the formal part of the evening with Noel giving a short speech acknowledging the huge achievement and the vital contributions of many, especially Nigel.

Andrew & Myra produced a wonderful 3 course dinner, Kristo & Briony served us with style and the wine flowed freely all night.

Fiona and Annie put on a marvellous trivia quizz with questions from every imaginable field. Hayley's Heroes (Ian, John, Will, Hayley & Marjalyn) put up a fight but the Half Arse team (David, Alan, Bron, Garry, Mark Helen, Jenny & Brian) triumphed.

Thanks every one for a fabulous night
