    Snow Report Thredbo 2021 Trip Reports, Pics, Updates and Conditions.

    The typos in that story are embarrassing. Example: it says Kosciuszko's Thredbo when it means Kosciuszko Thredbo's. Just a complete failure by the journo to understand there is a business entity called Kosciuszko Thredbo. Tragically the story is by AAP. What happens when you close and restart a...

    Snow Report Thredbo 2021 Trip Reports, Pics, Updates and Conditions.

    Hey all, just wanted to add a few thoughts after yesterday's one-day dash from Syd to ski da Bo. Like I said, Ballroom into Dream Run was the pick. Snowmaking on Dream Run really makes a diff, providing an option to High Noon which few take. It was great before lunch, cushiony dry bumps that...

    Snow Report Thredbo 2021 Trip Reports, Pics, Updates and Conditions.

    Thredbo is skiing very very welll today. Laps of ballroom into DR the pick. Only 100m of sketchy brown ice on DR where lifts cross. Otherwise dreamy!

    Observations 15-20th June System

    Snow on road last 3 or 4 km in Thredbo. Touch and go no chains in my Hyundai. Very wet snow tho. Tomorrow should be good up high. One day ski trip from Syd so I'll take anything but might be nice up there. Still snowing moderately. Bedtime

    Spencer's CK 2021

    Righto story here. They haven't given up. But I think @snowflake21 might be onto something. They need to know how much is incoming in spring melt, hence priority at that end of season. Don't ever expect to see an April or early May fall recorded again IMO...

    Spencer's CK 2021

Welcome to the forum btw @snowflake21. Would you be willing to tell me privately what you know strictly off the record...

    Snow Report Thredbo 2021 Trip Reports, Pics, Updates and Conditions.

    Dead horse gap needs a supervised snow play area and toilets and a donut van. I don't actually want this as it's a special and beautiful place, but something's gotta give. Last year I saw a family change a kids nappy and leave it in the snow at DHG. The park needs help and the hordes aren't...

    Has been an unbelievably hard job treading that line between respecting all views (within reason) and maintaining strong advocacy for the environment. Fallen off the tightrope at times I'm sure but the book ends on a strong note on the need to take the science seriously

    Predictions 7-12th Jun 2021 - Curtain Raiser

    I skied the top third of Red hill on an old pair of K2s as a teenager in October 1987. They were a very old pair of K2s after that but it was worth it!

    The Barilaro chapter is called "Bruz". Interviewed em both. Barra said I could launch it at state parly. Would love to get em both there in the middle of a lawsuit. Fun times if it happens. Longshot but gonna try

    The forums look sleek and sexy as a new pair of skis. Well done @POW_hungry and/or whoever. I woulda been like this :tany: if the old smilies had gone, but they have not. As you were

    Air and style is coming to Sydney.....you'll be shocked at the price!

    Wrote it up. Spoke to White. Acted enthused. Am quite enthused. Expected cynicism here. Found cynicism here. Would I spend a few hundred bucks on this, or a weekend in Thredrisher if the snow is even half good? Everyone here knows the answer. But I managed to get some quotes out of White about...

    Snow Report Thredbo 2017 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    Speaking of BC pics, at this time of year I used to most enjoy Richard's report. Dude was the king of Siggie Hill, which btw still looks super juicy on the Kossie track cam. Anyone heard from/of him lately?

    End of season mountain operations

    I know nothing of these glacier worms of which you speak, but if they clean teenager bedrooms, could you send a few over?

    Snow Report Mt Buller 2017 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    Yeah I've skied Buller twice, both times in good snow and weather (lucky me!) and I've always been a bit annoyed having to take two lifts for Fast One, but that makes sense. As we all know, it's all about the lower end $$$ at ski resorts these days
