A short movie from Katherine Davis. 2015 ski season opening day on Mount Mawson in Southern Tasmania. The ski field is run completely by dedicated volunteers from the various clubs that make up the Southern Tasmanian Ski Association. This is a typical start to the season (digging), unfortunately a lifting rope holding the tow rope off the snow had snapped in the blizzard and the rope was buried in a few spots (up to 2 metres deep). Oldina Ski Club members are hard at work excavating the buried rope, eventually getting the tow up and running by 1pm on Saturday!
