After departing Essendon, given the early morning fog we were VFR on top for the trip over Melbourne and cleared up to 2500 feet by the Essendon controllers, before experiencing perfect weather for the remainder of the trip. We snuck up to 6500 feet for a direct track straight to Mt Buller, which we could see in the distance before we even got to the Yarra Valley!

After a track over the Village and the fresh snow on the ski runs, we landed at the top of the car park at Horse Hill, for the quick trip onto the moment.
