Description

Centre Gully is a mellower run which leads down to Blue Lake. This run is often used to warm up and scope out the other runs before tackling them head on. Again this run holds some incredible snow late in the season, and is skiable commonly into November. The run begins to the south east of the Twynam summit, yet the gully turns to funnel down to the south west into a slightly narrow chute, but immediately widens again down to the lake. Take care early in the season as you can commonly find a few sharks lurking beneath the surface when there isn't a base. This run can also hold some fantastic snow after a storm, so you can count on this run to catch the snow blowing off of the top of Twynam.
