In earlier days I'm talking 1981 or something you could ski from Lovers leap from middle station along the ridge down a track to the bridge where the river inn is now and just walk home over to our place next to the house of ullr if there was enough snow..awesome days.

LMB: Friday Flat is not for you to do quick laps Gareth! You'll spook the beginners. If you're on it you need to be going at the speed of your beginner buddies. Even Merritts on QBW was a bit whack with such a diversity of abilities in such a small space. Most really good skiers/boarders were adjusting to conditions (including the people), but there were quite a few who thought fast meant skilled - ummm, nope, that's why you just crashed into that little kid.
Agree @LMB, My family was down at the start of the week and found a big mix of starters, good and very good skiers/ snowboarders. My second youngest who's 7 but his 4th year skiing got hit once by a beginner snowboarder on walkabout, not fast and something that does happen, it knocked his nerves a little. Later that day just through the narrow funnel at the top of walkabout he this time had to endure a pack (4) of idiotic snowboarders who thought they were the absolute best smash through there at very high speed only for one to have nowhere to go hurtling straight at my boy. The guy virtually threw himself down to miss my son by millimetres. I gave the guy an absolute serve, if he had hit him I may have done more. I just couldn't believe these idiots would be so oblivious to their surrounds. I have absolute respect for everyone on the mountain and we should be all there to look out for each other whether it be avoidance, helping people that have fallen or lost a ski but there are just some that are down right selfish and self absorbed to give a shit about anyone else on the mountain, specially young guys when they're in a group. Rant over :mad:

Dos: I personally think FF little Donut sucks. Ones at PS Tube station and Buller's under-staircase are much better.

Perisher Mini Orbits for the win. Nothing like trying to do the dash for doughnuts from the blue cow train and trying to make the next bullocks flat train.

gareth_oau: To be honest its not the quick laps thats important. Its the closeness to the coffee and donuts LOL

gareth_oau: I enjoy Friday Flat if accompanying newbies. So easy to do quick laps
