    Why? Why not just ski on the best runs with the shortest queues?

    Can't imagine why you would want to do that.

    edit. ride every lift that is, rather than skiing best terrain.

    That's a little different. I don't think those guys would be riding the carpet lifts.

    I'd need a better reason that that to ride a carpet for next to zero vert.

    I remember Shiga Kogen doing something like that in the 80's. You could get a card and collect a stamp at each lift and could get some certificate if you collected all of them. Seemed pointless skiing stuff I had no interest in, so didn't bother.

    That is covering a fait bit of ground though, rather than up and down the same face.

    I think it was more about quantity than quality. Their snowboard skills were better than mine anyday. I'm just the master of falling down.

    Tried 2 years ago during school holidays.....impossible. Lift queues were nuts.
    Did it last year, midweek in August....easy peasy!
    We planned it so that we'd \ ride every lift (and yes, carpet) only once. It did involve a little hike up behind North P bullwheel, but otherwise a pretty good challenge.
    We started with first lifts from Telemark t-bar (close to where we were staying) and finished sometime after 2 pm.
    Fun...except the bit where we had to go to Smiggs.

    I let my 11 year old and her friend loose by themselves for a day in Perisher last year, and rather than them wandering aimlessly for the day, I gave them this very challenge. With the exception of a few carpets, they achieved all the lifts :)

    Um, its Perisher! Where is the vert? Its like wheres Wally! Its kind of like a bigger Merritts.

    Oh boy I could go on, but I get busy heckling the crowd that start on the other side at Thredbo.

    Actually we were talking about doing it one day, be harder than doing it at Thredbo, especially with a no lift twice rule.

    If you are anywhere for an extended period playing ski map bingo can add to the fun.
    If you normally dodge t bars you're forced onto t bars, if you normally avoid that green run just coz it's green, you might remember how much fun it could be...etc

    Reckon it would be more fun to take a challenge of skiing all posted runs in one day .... of course only at skifield where it is actually doable as well as difficult

    I attempted to do it in Whistler my very first day a couple of years ago.

    The only reason i failed (the rest of the group succeeded) was cause i did not know the mountain missed a turn and went to the bottom and had no mobile contact with the group.

    I ended up at the bottom of over at Whister and they were going to Creekside... LOL

    I was pretty certain they used to that at Perisher in the mid 90s ,although it may have been unofficial and mostly just between people that were based there for the season.
    From memory it was done on a week day late August/early sept.

    I'm not sure if they are intentially bad though, they don't come across it that way. Especially on the days that the news reporter reads them, in a news reporters voice. Comes with owning a radio station as well as a ski resort I guess.

    Not every bar. Was with the barmaids from the Stamperl Bar and couple of instructors so most of it was Gratis. It was also Fasching so plenty of madness. Ended up skiing down from Kohlmais in the dark straight into the Shirmbars at Bauers. Bells and horns going off,,,, Sepp was already there surrounded by 5 cougars with a big smile on his face.
