This year, was a challenging one for most area ski club’s with the weather.

Brimacombe pumped a record of approximately 34 million gallons of water onto the ski hills this year to try and keep a good base.  The previous record was 30 million gallons of water.

On Sunday, while a number of people made it across the 20-metre “puddle,” a number of people took the plunge into “Lake Brimacombe.”

The weather for the day was like the season, a bit of sun, cloud and snow.
