    I'm going to an Instructor event (Intertele) in Cervinia in a couple of weeks and to answer all of the questions I get I'm going to do an indoor presentation on skiing in Australia. If any of you like to share a photo you have of something which you thinks sums up skiing in Australia and you'd be happy for me to use it could you post it in this thread and I'll PM you to get a high res copy.

    Thanks!

    I can't believe they let you go to interski and intertele
    Seems suspiciously like double dipping.
    Was your trip approved by a Buller exec?

    Mt. St. Gwinear, VIC., some years back indeed. I was more portly back then and was still using hire gear for snow shoe trips. I was also the only Turbanator to be found on snow shoes for far and wide.As the Terminator once quipped: " I'll be back ....!"

    Where is the first photo from , that you have posted?.Is that The Bon Accord Spur as seen from The top of the Mt. Hotham End of the Razorback ?.It doesn't look like Mt. FT or Mt. Bogong.

    These are a couple of photo's I got over the June long weekend out near The Sentinel. My 2 boys and I had a great weekend snowshoeing.

    Weather was outstanding, but not quite enough snow for a ski just yet.

    Tell those people abroad that we have lots of snow in Ozstriya if you happen to be on the Main Range in NSW in Spring :) .
