Temperature was -5c degrees when we venture out to try our luck with snowmaking machine in the area called “Friday Flats” – the beginner slope of Thredbo Resort.

Snowmaking and Grooming
Thredbo is the benchmark for snowmaking and grooming in Australia. The already mega snowmaking system that covers 25% of the trails has had another $2 million makeover in the summer and is now fully automated. What does this mean to snow riders? In the 2006 season 42% more snow was made than the previous year, this coming winter the mountain crew expects to produce an extra 30% again. More trails will be covered by the automated system. So better quality, greater coverage and more areas covered. Combine this with a state of the art grooming fleet to smooth the trails (including winch cats to smooth the steep), you know you will always have the best possible snow riding conditions. The "corduroy" surface left behind after a touch up from this mountain crew will make your boards sing!

    I love this haningpixels. Looks like a meteor has just hit the earth or a spaceship has landed. Excellent work!

    Wow! What a dramatic effect with that white division between the dark corner in the foreground and the blue-black sky! I really like the way that dark sky takes up most of the space – gives a nice balance between the bright and dark, and the vertical shot is very interesting.
