    That's why they say .... "up north". That view is the most pondered view in Thredbo; like looking at Tate Ridge and wondering "if only there was a lift".

    Pissed I missed the week of the decade but get to ski next weekend so all good. :)

    But in the context of the post (the Thredbo valley) he was looking down the valley. As in down stream, the way water would flow etc..

    Down and up mean different things in different situations. Railways in NSW for example - all run up to Sydney and down away from Sydney. Which obviously doesn't match topography because Sydney is a hole.

    Apparently the groomers resurfaced that whole bowl last night to shorten the depth under the lines. Hence it was 45 late opening today.

    Having boarded in the trees at the top of Cruiser last month it has filled in incrediably!! I think there 3-4 metres of base in that trees area.

    Diesels should be good in there as temp should be no lower than zero.No need to worry about air temp below zero.

    Popped some obs pics taken today on the Perisher thread. Lots of snow out there. Groomers were having to shift snow in the morning so that folks would not hit the chairs in and around Mt P.
