Once apon a time it wasn't unusual for Thredbo to open the basin over the Christmas break.
I remember those xmas's well, but they did not open the t-bar. Walking back up with the toboggan was a real bitch!

In 92 I was playing a good level of cricket and remember playing on a Saturday then skiing on Sunday. Good times.
I did that in 2012, was the best feeling driving up the freeway with skis and cricket kit in the boot.
Pre-season practice match in Yackandandah second last weekend in September, skied Sunday. Hungover.

I often surf one day ski the next
Yes plenty of that.
Bucket list is do both in one day.
Figure I can surf at home in the morning and get on the hill for arv carve,
or vice versa.
This year might have to be the year for it.

FWIW earlier this month I went fishing on good friday, golfed on saturday, skied closing day on sunday. A coupla beers at the top of the mountain after the lifts closed and arrived in the car park about 6 pm. Satisfying weekend.

Queends bd as the second Monday in june, the 8th is the earliest and June 14 is the latest.
labour day as first monday in October yields the 5th for a QB of 8th. So queens birthday Mondays of 8,9,or 10 will give labour day mondays of 5,6, or 7. All equal in length. conversely starts with QB mondays of 11,12,13 14 are equal and a week shorter yielding closing mondays of 1, 2,3,4 oct.

I have done the maths and the official ski season is either 17 weeks and 2 days or 16 weeks and 2 days. If the NSW QB holiday falls on the 8,9 or 10 June then official season is 17 weeks. If the holiday falls on 11,12,13 or 14 June then the season is 16 weeks.

The earliest official start is Saturday 6 June (QB 8 June) and the latest is Sat 12 June (QB 14 June). The latest official close of the season is Monday 7 Oct and that occurs when the QB holiday falls on Monday 10 June.

I think the official season dates are pretty meaningless. The actual season length all depends on snow cover (natural or manmade). Prior to snow making I would consider any opening before 30 June an early season.
