    I’ve dug up this old book from storage at my mum’s. Anyone know it? Happy to post a few pictures from it, either here or in individual resort forums. Interesting snapshot of Aussie & NZ skiing from 1983

    It was a big year, the year after mud season. One needs to understand that when Guthega was Guthega it was well of the beaten track.

    I do recall that mag, the cover shot has people on skinny stiff skis ... having a huge time.

    I've got it on the book shelf. My dad likes buying books from op shops and picked it up for a couple of dollars a few years ago and gave it to me. I quite often have a flick through it.
