    They were ex rentals. Purchased already can not be refunded. Just wondering if a base grind will solve it or is it air pockets from overheat ski with iron?

    Take to ski tech such as Adi at Perisher, very possible will grind out but suspect it would be an all care no responsibility job.

    Or leave as is and you have your June & late season rock hoppers.

    Cheese smuggling from Wales to England is big.

    The books are a wild ride. I get about one offbeat literary or historical reference a page, but I am sure that there are heaps that I miss.

    :D To be fair Wales has some great cheeses. I can see why there would be smugglers.

    Did you type or copy and oaste Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch?

    One of my significant and important talents is that I can spell Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

    I could try and bluff the answer but I'm lost on that. It would most likely be a coal and cheese based currency given then apparent lust for welsh cheeses.

    As a connoisseur of carrot cake, there's none better than that served at Tracies IMO.

    The armchair experts will say if you can't pay rent wages compliance costs you shouldnt be in business but by God hospitality is near impossible in Australia

    A friend posted on FB yesterday, with drone photos, that Wales was spotted 2.3klm off the far south Australian coast!*

    *I think it was a typo, there were whales in the photo, not what I expected.

    Can confirm Tracie’s lumberjack cake is still good. No carrot cake today.

    How old are the skis???

    The bumps you feel is the edge material. It does not matter if you can see the tangs under the base but feeling them is not right. Now heigh do the bumps feel are you talking .1mm or +1 mm.

    I’m glad to see a thread about the merits of frozen carrot cake and the good people Mountain Eyre has taken a turn for the better in people looking at the finer details of Cymraeg.

    As it should be

    Would say less than 1mm.. Not much but can see them and feel them ever so slightly as raised bumps in the base as you described as tangs.

    These are VOLKL Kendo.. 2018. Im sure.I can use a metal scraper and make the bumps go away and sand over the area / steel brush to add some structure. But just wondering wtf caused this lol

    Decided to treat myself to carrot cake at Eyre today. Was surprised to find it was $5 a piece. Seem to recall that it had always been $3.60. Didn't ask but am guessing it's a covid safety thing i.e. not having to make change or take change from possibly infected punters. I noted too that some other prices had been rounded up to the full amount of the next denomination of note e.g. Big Eyre burger up from $9 to $10. Having said that, cake was as good as ever and at $10 the Big Eyre is still great value for a really good burger.

    While the resort is still open and you'all are still skiing there, can someone please ask Steve what his opening plans are over the summer. I forgot when I was there the other day and I doubt I will get down for another ski this season. My default guess is re-opening on Boxing Day, every day except Wednesdays (golf) BUT 2020 has been such a shocker I can well imagine he might do something different this summer... Thanks.

    So how did the Carrot Cake go not in the snow ? My experience of things in the high alpine , particularly when bushwalking xc skiing and camping is that it enhances the taste of food exponentially when youre cold and hungry . When doing the Alpine Track years ago , i had a small bladder of port brought up on one of the food drops.. Nectar of the gods sitting up above Cleve Cole hut on Bogong.. Had a taste of it when back in Melbourne.... mmm catspiss.

    Alpine Eyre has a popular business there, last weekend the wait for burgers was around 30 minutes both days.

    But what a place to have to wait! :)
