    Golly! Mt Mawson has a lot of cover... time to get that tow rope running.

    Hey
    Is it worth going to Tassie to ski. Do they get much snow over there and is there much terrain, XC and Downhill wise.

    Thanks

    Does anyone know the idea behind this ground covering tarpaulin and how it improves snow cover/retention - if that is the idea?

    I saw something on Facebook about Mawson getting a new shelter. I think tenders are going out for construction as we speak.

    Does anyone know if there are plans to run the Mawson tow soon? I was on the mountain last weekend and conditions were excellent for tows. Was up there 2 weekends before that and there was plenty to run tows then too. The recent post on mawson.info sounded like they were keen and ready but now it's all gone quiet.
