The final countdown is on here at Crescent Spur and our whirlwind of a season will be coming to a close in just a couple of days – it truly flew by this year!
Tour 13 was a week of mild temperatures but still plenty of great skiing, and the groups spent every day down south on the glaciers. Clear skies and sunshine meant unreal views and spectacular mountaintop lunches, and low hazard allowed the groups to explore tons of terrain and even ski some brand-new runs.
We had a clear and mild start to Tour 14 but that quickly changed as a spring storm rolled through on Tuesday and dumped upwards of 40cm in some areas of our tenure. The sun was back out by midday Wednesday and stuck around for the remainder of the week so the groups were able to take full advantage of the long days and ski late into the afternoon.
The week was also slightly bittersweet for us as it was the last shift our long-time pilot Andre would be spending at Crescent Spur. We’re sad to see him go (and know many of our guests will miss him too) but we wish him the best in Australia and can’t wait to hear about all the new adventures that await down under.
Tour 15 wrapped up our 2019 season, and it was a great week of classic spring alpine and glacier skiing. The beginning of the week was warm and sunny but overnight temperatures dropped and conditions were excellent, allowing the group to ski lots of classic Spur runs, plus a few new ones. Wednesday night brought 20cm of new snow which meant an awesome finish to the week and to the season!
We’re now in full shut down mode at the lodge and in a just few short days the team here will be packed up and saying our goodbyes for the summer. A huge thank you to everyone who joined us this winter, we hope you had as much fun up at the Spur as we did and your summers are filled with sunshine and good times. We can’t wait to see everyone again in 2020!
