    With at least a week more of lifts spinning, surely you'll crack the 1m vert, @Normo !? I don't want to jinx you so will save any congrats until then, but thanks for being such an inspiration to all us part timers!

    It seems 1m per annum is almost the norm (boom tish!) for you, and yet nobody else in recent years (or ever?!) seems to have cracked that magic mark. Unbelievable!

    Thanks for sharing all that snow, and for making our vicarious lives that little better by sharing your pics and reports. Bravo!!!

    Nah. Closer to 8k. 123 days. Even without the extension it’s 117 days = 8.5k.

    My kids and I were studying the dashboard and it appears the vertical metres doesn't include the upper half of the Perisher Express?
    Hard to believe it only lifts you150m?

    Thanks for the kind words. There's still a bit to do. It'll take a few more days of favourable conditions and staying injury free, but I should be able to get there.
    I will, of course, time the whole event to fit in with the social schedule of @Alister, who was present the first time I cracked the 1mill. :)

    Will there be nude skiing involved. We need to warn the children.

    You'd better be there on Sunday then. Your outfit will divert all the attention from the nude skier. :p:D

    It's embarrassing being on the same lift as Normo. Guys ask him to sign their skis and girls ask for his mob number ;)

    Game starts at 2:30pm with ~10K to go. You may be right ;)

    Some familiar names on the leader board today, someone must have left his skins in the car. :p

    Why is it a fantastic goal to shoot for ?
    For those that care about such things , well done you if you achieve your goal in vm's for a season but how many vm's I achieve in the days I ski isn't a thing for me. If its your thing then great and in cases like Lord Normo's it shows a heightened level of dedication , amongst other things.
    I would find it too distracting and would probably result in far too many repeats of sameness day after day but each to their own.
