Howmans Gap All Stars Race Cancellations

Dear skiers,

Howmans Gap All Stars Ski Club Inc. regrets to advise that we must cancel the cross country ski races scheduled to be conducted at Falls Creek on Saturday 11 July and Sunday 12 July 2015.

The latest forecasts based on weather prediction models indicate that there will likely be insufficient depth of snow to conduct the snow Trek and Travel High Plains Tour on Saturday 11 July 2015. Significant snow is unlikely to arrive before Saturday afternoon or evening, and will be preceded by rain/wet snow periods from early Friday morning through to mid-Saturday afternoon.

Latest predictions are that the significant snow will not begin to fall until Sunday night and the heavy snow fall when it arrives may be accompanied by blizzard conditions. So even if there is sufficient snow  to run the YMCA Howmans Gap Victorian Relay Championships on Sunday 12 July, conditions may be difficult for grooming and very tough for racers and volunteer race officials. The forecast is also likely to discourage skiers from travelling to the mountain and from racing.

So thank you for your support, but the cross country ski races scheduled for Falls Creek for this coming weekend 11 & 12 July have been cancelled.  Please join us to race in 2016.
