Now I'm sick too ... Had been planning to go up tomorrow and meet up with robw to use my remaining lift pass days but have binned that plan now. Ripper of a holiday ...
Megan still sick so we came home early. Hard to drive away from 20cm of fresh snow.

With even more windy weather forecast (80km/h at the top) and Megan feeling worse again we decided to bail and hope everything was better tomorrow. I went for a little jog around the lake shore, pretty blowy but nice to stretch my legs. Right lower back started to seize near the end.
Today's accomm fun was getting locked out when the tape over the extraneous deadbolt let go, engaging the lock which apparently no-one has a key for. Cue waiting for the realtor and then the locksmith.
Alpine Skiing 4:30:00 
10cm of fresh snow overnight and slightly colder, still windy. Ventured to Blue Cow, had a fantastic run down Rollercoaster, run of the week so far, then a shit low vis, wind scoured run down Side Saddle before lunching at the terminal. Absolutely miserable up high. Caught the skitube back to Perisher and tried Interceptor. Found some shelter - at least once you dropped away from the summit, it was pretty miserable in the chair - and some nice pockets of wind blown powder. Ewan and Megan had had enough and went off to do some tobogganing, leaving me to try some more adventurous lines down Interceptor. Good fun.
Alpine Skiing 3:45:00 
Everyone went today including Megan who's still sick. Windy and warmer today. Most lifts were on wind-hold driving everyone to the more sheltered t-bars so there were long lines everywhere. Tried Smiggins briefly and it was grassy and slushy and not much fun.
We were sorely lacking fun in our apartment this evening when a load of washing flooded half of it, soaking a few square metres of carpet and getting under the vinyl flooring in the kitchen. Who disconnects the washer's drain pipe while leaving everything else connected? Cue lot's of mopping up with towels. Thankfully we stopped it before it reached our stuff and the sleeping area. Called the realtor again; they brought more towels, helped with the mopping up (not literally, no mop could be found) and organised a professional to dry the carpets tomorrow.
Alpine Skiing 3:30:00 
Just me and Ewan today, Megan was sick in bed with a cold :( We explored Pretty Valley most of the day, found a few nice powdery parts amongst the trees. Made an attempt to ski over to Blue Cow but were stopped dead by a gale force headwind at Pleasant Valley and bailed back to Perisher.
Had to call the realtor because the mattress on Ewan's sofa bed was all poking springs and was too uncomfortable to sleep on. Thankfully the realtor organised a foam mattress topper. Little did we guess how often we'd have to call the realtor this week ...
