Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

AUS­TRALIAN crick­et­ing leg­end Adam Gilchrist ex­pe­ri­enced snow for the first time in mid-July with his wife and chil­dren at Falls Creek.

Gilchrist clipped on the skis and took to the slopes and said he was thrilled to be able to ex­pe­ri­ence some great snow­falls at the re­sort on July 11 and 12.

“This is my de­but in any kind of snow so this has been re­mark­able and see­ing the tran­si­tion from just a few days ago – 15cm one night, 30cm the next time with more on the way is amaz­ing,” he said.

“I am an am­a­teur but it looks per­fect for any­one that wants to try it.

“In my opin­ion the snows here and it looks like its set it up for the whole sea­son and talk­ing to all the ex­perts they’re just thrilled- you can see the smiles ap­pear on their faces.

“It’s a bit frus­trat­ing when it’s not around but now that it’s here its go, go, go.”
