My favourite way to spend a Winter Sunday:
7 am – Head out of Jindabyne in time to avoid the August weekend traffic snarl.
8 am – Skins on and a peaceful amble up the road to Eyre, watching as the Perisher resort slowly comes to life
9 am – First lift up Eyre and some excellent runs down the untouched groomers.
10 am – Coffee & BLT at the Eyre cafe
10.30 – Time to run away from the crowds and head to the empty untracked playgrounds of the Perisher sidecountry.
Time stands still – A few hours of solitude in the silent sparkling backcountry, not a breath of wind, and a myriad of untracked slopes to choose from. Several powdery descents and meditative climbs later, along with a healthy dose of adrenaline and endorphins, it’s a half hour trek back to civilisation.
1.30 - Sunday lunch hour – seems like the crowds have started heading home, so who could resist a couple of fun runs around Mt P.
What an awesome Sunday, these are the days I dream about as winter approaches each year. - Pieta Herring
