    Could Twin Valleys be Australia’s next resort?

    I think the most practical solution to significantly increasing the amount of lift served terrain in Aus is..... Expand perisher to include paralyzer and little paralyzer, Along with clearing the road throughout winter all the way to the Spencers creek gate/bridge. Create a new base area...

    When BOM / Weatherzone / Models get it wrong

    Slightly OT here, But does anyone know if any of the large / popular weather models have any element of AI involved? It seems like a perfect job for an NN system to me? Big data sets, lots of inputs, you can generate results for +6 hrs, +12, etc. and then you get a perfect result when you get...

I'm really hoping to get it small and managable, i've had enough scary 6-8 foot sessions fearing for my life trying...

Think i ended up with 10 or more rides, Still only 1 truly EPIC ride (4 turns and just felt right) but plenty of good and so so waves. Was able to recognize issues during the...
