Kash: Sounds like private lessons have made a bit of a difference.
Absolutely. My two have been in the seasonal programs for the last few years, which has been really great for their skiing. We were going to enroll the young bloke into dev squad this year except Rona happened. I’m not really interested in having them race though, not keen on standing around watching when I could be skiing myself, but it would be good for them to have those sort of challenges and actually learn to ski properly rather than pick up bad habits from me. Plus it gives the wife and I time to ski together while the kids are off in class. I’m thinking of getting them in something similar for mountain bikes during summer. I know there are classes run at stromlo

Annabuzzy: Rename the tunnel “Tuck it Tommy”
The Tommy Tuck ???
Annabuzzy: One of Tommy's tales...many years ago when he was the Captain of the Thredbo Ski Patrol, he would test the grit of the new trainees by making them take a banana boat down the Bluff.
Sounds like the Golf Course Exit Run would be spot on then.

dawooduck: :thumbs: Not a reflection on yourself but perhaps a gentle nudge for others to advise according to fact and not emotion. I am in Thredbo most everyday and if you want to go for another little wander just drop me a PM and perhaps we could go together. :)
dawooduck: I completely understand, and I do feel somewhat reckless posting only half a story on the Thredbo trip report thread where people even more inexperienced than me could get some fancy/bad ideas (particularly since this is the public one I'm pretty sure). BC chatter thread is a much better place. Thank you, that's a kind offer and if I do head back I will take you up on that :)
Take the Duck up on that cause he has a real nice compass :) Oh and the company is excellent.

BlueHue: I remember skiing with your kids around the same age in Hakuba - a bit younger i thunk even. That was a depressing reality check.
That was the trip ;)

chicski: Hehe. I recall the moment I realised my kids were waiting at the bottom of the run for me instead of the other way around. I think aged 12 and 8. Also the same trip that miss 8 beat big brother in an impromptu race.

It would be nice if the spot chosen reflected a line he likes to ski.

crackson: Should ask Tommy what spot he likes the most. Ballroom?

Village Trail = Tommy's Trail? Nice little alliteration to it

linked_recoveries: Damn! Was it really that we met everyone in Eagle's Nest for Tommy's 90th? So, now that we have Frank's Face which run should get the Tommy treatment? They could name a designated run in the Golf Course Bowl. I mean 'Golf Course Exit Run' is crying out for something less prosaic (albeit everyone instantly knows what you're talking about). It could be Tommy's traverse.
Surely we could find something more pleasant to name after Tommy than the often sketchy means to an end that is GC Exit Run!

Sponars Rock run could become Tommys Drift.

What about renaming Basin Run or Cruiser Traverse?

I cant wait for this to happen. My two are 8 and 9, have been skiing for a few yrs but still require a bit of waiting and coaxing to descend the steeper stuff, and to keep up with/overtake their old man I reckon they are a few more years away! Sounds like private lessons have made a bit of a difference.

skull: So after the weekend, I think I can now say that Mr 7 can out ski me. Saturday morning him and I did some laps of ballroom, down the supertrail and then up to the bell and hot lap all the way down as well, we weren't slacking off. He kept up with me rather well and on a few occasions even tried to give it a squirt to get past me. He had a private lesson on Saturday afternoon and skied pretty hard there and learnt a few new things. Then he took off solo on FF cutting laps by himself till last lift. Sunday morning the young boy and I were out again hitting a few fast high noons straight off then to ballroom and he pretty much tore my legs off, I had to bribe him with HC to have a rest. I was cooked by the time we stopped for lunch. He then went off on another lesson and I sulked at the cafe drinking coffees and rested my tired legs and sore knees. I am impressed but also depressed. Miss 5 also had lessons with her instructor she has had the last two years at little rippers, which was really good as it has helped her be comfortable and do what is asked. She regressed a little bit from last year as now has bigger boots and skis, her instructor had her back doing nice parallels again by the end of the weekend. It won't be long before my little girl is out pacing dad like her brother. Conditions on the weekend, warm but ice. I was had a look at some of the shops for a lighter long sleeve type top to ditch my jacket. The groomers run really nice in the morning up till around 11. Off piste was like cement, even in the afternoon. Coverage was really blah. Hopefully this week delivers some goods. Had dinner from the pizzeria (amazing). Oh and the fireworks once we finished before heading back to camp. A great weekend, and will be back again in a couple of days.
