We are off to Mt Hutt early in the morning, after dinner at Chris and Frances's place tonight. Heather has rented the Volkl skis again, and the conditions seem to be becoming spring-like, according to Grant Bush, a friend from the UC IT Dept, who went skiing on Thursday. He said it started out very firm then softened. This shot from Mt Hutt's web site today, of an Austrian team member in a high speed bank, certainly looks like spring snow.
The Austrian men's team and the Swiss women's team are both training at Hutt at present, so that should make for some interesting sights.
