Golf- not snow - balls!

Early this morning was treated to a good skate on snow ice on the Lower Manoburn.  Skated from the gorge, down into Rush Cutters and  surprisingly good considering the warm weather.
Someone had been having fun hitting golf balls out into the main basin!  Quite a collection out there.

Some new black ice in some places but not thick or strong enough to skate on.  Bumpy in the shade but smooth elsewhere.  Wouldn't try it without a good frost!
Think this will be pretty much it for the season.   Longer days and warm temps are here and the snow ice becomes soft and weak in the sun.

Not snow balls.......
