    Show us your skis!!!

    I've never been on proper downhill or back country ski's so I have nothing to compare them too, I'm on the overtake most of the time at resorts so they cant be that much slower. They are awesome uphill, never had any issues, the occasional herringbone if needed. They skis cost $25 at a gear...

    Hotham Vs Buller

    Buller has more km of black runs, while Hotham may have more challenging black runs it definitely has better off-piste for the extremely advanced with the Razorback and Feathertop.

    Snow Report Mt Baw Baw 2019 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions.

    Yeah, no road proper clearing at all meant there was about 10cm of snow on the whole road. People slipping with chains on the way up because they had no momentum. 1hr queue to get out the top carpark because of crashes.

    Suggestion Traffic to and from the Snow

    Needs laws put it place to protect drives who pit maneveur other cars off the road who don't pull out into the slow vehicle bays and let everyone else pass.

    Advice needed Route suggestion

    Finding Edmonsons or Johnstons hut in the dark with little to no experience of the area is asking for trouble. They are both ungroomed, pole lines go through trees at some point. If you want to leave midday Friday you are better off staying in Mt Beauty and leaving early morning.

    Snow Report The Lake Mountain 2019 Trip Report, Conditions & Pics Thread

    Most of the trails were awesome today, nice and firm (I skied from 8 to 10:30) Royston’s Road is patchy and full of frozen foot prints, same with Taggery Return, seems LM Management forgot about the “No walking on ski trails” Signs.

    Advice needed What car to buy for Hotham?

    My Father has been skiing for over 40 years owning many vehicles over that time, hes currently on his 4th Subaru Outback. He has used them as a plumbing vehicle 5 days a week, towing a trailer and has had 300k+ on each one. If you want a nippy super grippy all rounder that is the best choice...

    Buller Crew Banter Thread

    Saw 4 cops on the road yesterday, still managed to overtake a few cars in my 36yr old Landcruiser on the way down from Buller. Some people have no idea how to drive on Alpine roads.

    Unfair chains requirement

    Throw ski gear in car, throw skis in car, throw chains in car, go skiing. How hard is it? Buy a set and they'll last to you die.

    News Pretty Valley hut maintenance and possibly total rebuild

    Hopefully they don't replace it with a characterless, flat pack hut.
