    Thredbo restaurant recommendations?

    I loved Ullr, Mexican recently, the tuna and avocado dish was a highlight. I usually take our food though listen to other members after they go out as I love food. This season people are mainly rating The Burger Bar, Ullr, Denman and Cascades.

    Winter's Snowed-In BBQ Forum

    We are in the mountains each weekend, yes tough life. This weekend was always planned to be a camping one at the diggings and there is no room at our club lodge. Looking at the weather threads it may be one to sit out, do not have a Monday option. Thoughts please? Snow down to the park gate? I...

    Winter, in Japan with a car,trip report

    No point going anywhere in Hakuba without a booking IMO. We also saw a lot of people turned away from HIE the evening we went. This year we could only get the bar spot, actually perfect as we ate a lot more sashimi than we would have in a booth. Best fatty tuna ever!!

We had a lengthy call prior to departure and were told it could weigh up to 45kgs, which is true though you have to pay excess over 23kgs. We had a quick shuffle of the extra 5kgs...

    Completely agree. Yesterday we were lucky to be on the first couple of chairs when they opened skyline.Best run of my life!!! Today we managed again to be on the 1st chairs when it opened after entering from the top quad chair. At 350 we were still finding fresh lines in the area. Amazing 2 days.
