    In Australia you use chq or Savings and transaction appears instantly on account. If you use credit in Australia it’ll take a few days to show up. Overseas you use credit, even if you press chq or savings it will revert to credit or simply decline

    Japan: General tips for when and where to go for snow

    You’re in the right area for “mystery dumps”...... a site like this is similar to BOM in Australia and you can see what’s happening in real time. You have to be very vigilant though. Myoko and Nozawa are renowned for getting dumps out of nowhere. I’ve been at both where 70cm-1m have dropped...

    Ski Travel Insurance

    For $104 per annum I’m happy. I took out travel insurance also with another company and am covered when I’m touring etc etc with a guide. The AAC will be for infrequent times I’m touring without a guide and off piste inbounds. So rescue costs inbounds would be zilch but have some sort of cover...

    Ski Travel Insurance

    Cheers. By the quick look I just had. I’ll join the Austrian Alpine Club and then purchase travel insurance from an Australian company. The Alpine Club will cover for any rescue up to there value anywhere outside of the resort whether I’m touring, heli or cat skiing. I’m assuming they’ll also do...

    Travel Insurance for Japan backcountry?

    For 2 people from jan 22 to feb 6 it was $1300....... not paying that. Surely there’s other options. Why don’t the insurance reward AST trained people and people trying to do the right thing. So frustrating

    Ski Travel Insurance

    According to that spreadsheet Bupa covers off piste. Not according to the pds. Off piste with a guide only. My usuals are no good now due to the influx of idiots ruining it for the good folk. Who are people using right now for off piste in and out of resort boundaries and ski touring. Touring...

    Marker kingpin v Salomon Shift

    I went with the Shifts after lots of procrastinating. I previously had the dukes and I can seriously say, why the hell would anyone use frame Bindings now. My legs really thanked me for it. Shift positives, ski inbounds as well as anything I’ve been on Shift negatives, I did get the dreaded...

    Ski purchase from Telemak Pyrenees-GST? Duty?? ?

    It’s not that they didn’t think it through, it’s more the fact that they’re “hopeful” that a company from another country will comply and then pay them the gst.......... so in a nutshell, the overseas company is doing nothing wrong or illegal, The ATO want them to do more work for no money and...

    Shhh on the best resort part too it was busy this year. Car park was often full. Still the people disperse quickly.

    Next year with the new lift it will certainly help massively to disperse the traffic. Just a pity they can’t fix the gondola to prevent getting off to get straight back on......... this is Revy I’m talking about here

    Canada 2019/2020 Planning, all advice appreciated

    I’m on the fence, Heli definitely has the awe factor. Been Heli 2 days and 1 day with Selkirk Tangier’s and 1 day with Methven in NZ. Been twice with Valhalla Cat skiing but never again. Cat, always seem rushed. Don’t stop for lunch. Cramped cabins. Ski outs are often not much fun to reach...

    Surely if Wh20 offered 50% off for Revy pass holders then Revy would do the same for Wh20 Pass holders? That’s the whole idea of a reciprocal resort. I can confirm that as a Wh20 season pass holder my only discount at Revy was 25% off full priced tickets.

    Not to rain on your parade....... I’ve neverheard or see. 50% off at Whitewater with a Revy annual pass? 5 or so years ago before all the ikon,epic and powder alliance cards many resorts use to have a 50%off with another resorts annual pass benefit. Don’t believe this is the case anymore?
