    Travel Life Hakuba 2020

    Yep, layers and totally agree with liners for your gloves. Just make sure you get them and check to make sure they fit into your overgloves AND that the liner and overglove material is compatible such that you can get the liners in without any issue.

    Advice needed First Time Japan Snow Trip (Nozawa Onsen and Hakuba Valley)

    Sightseeing first. If you break a leg skiing you're f*cked. That way you at least get the sightseeing and some skiing in if you get injured.

    News Falls Creek news and chat

    I don't think the Vic ski hills have ever got it right. An almost exclusive reliance on winter trade, over a shortening period of reliability, with little consideration for developing a summer trade - it just means endless gouging by the lodges, high lift prices that are not competitive...

    Snow Report Falls Creek 2018 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    FFC on the cams I would think. Mind you, FC is not the only hill with poor cams, it is pretty woeful in a lot of places here and OS. But it would be nice (and would cost bugger all) if they had decent cams - if anything it would show the place in a much more appealing way.

    USA 2017 - 2018 Trip Plans/Thoughts/Review

    Not too much snow anywhere really at the moment. But the forecast was for a fair bit overnight above 7000ft at Tahoe. And just looking out the window now the sky is clearing in SF and it's the weekend tomorrow! :D

    Of course the CFA and Sustainability or whatever they call themselves this year will not cool burn to reduce fuel load adequately. ...or if they do it will get away from them....as usual. :rolleyes:
