Just heard this, finding it hard to believe, the man is made of brass and cast iron
So sad. Hoping for a speedy recovery.
Epic pass is out $859....
Now do I or don’t I?
Vail hasn’t covered itself in glory, but the pass is still good value if the lifts turn.
Essentially same price as last year if one considers that the insurance which was previously optional and extra is now baked into the 2021 price....
Yeah I can't fault Vail for refunding me early on without any rubbish about waiting the season out.
I'll put $49 down.. but not for a month or two
Reduction in lesson discount (looks like it's gone from 25% to 20%)
EDIT: Confusingly in FAQ it says 25% discount on lessons, but in the main internet page it says 20%
EDIT AGAIN: But on the mobile it says 25%. I'm guessing it's 25%.
Seems the price rises on 29th September.... may as well chuck the $49 down then
The 5 year old keeps asking when she can ski again....as she wants to ski faster than mum and dad.....
I totally agree. If ever there was a year to have a global pandemic and not ski at Falls/ BHP 2020 is it. Look at the snow cam. at the Rover Chalet. Not good!!
That is a big IF. I don' trust Vail. I don't use lifts but I love the FC/ BHP area for XC /BC XC skiing and want people to have fun up there and go home happy.
Given the (theoretical) price rise on 29/09 I’ve bought in - both for myself and my younger son.
what decided you? I thought you were seriously considering not buying EAPs this time
nek minute lol
We'll do it. Hope springs eternal.
Self-interest outweighs outrage. At that price I’ll bite.
I was expecting to travel OS next year, but will put that on hold till 2022, so will be skiing locally, and that means Epic in terms of pricing and value.
Doesn’t mean I have fallen in love with Vail or buried the hatchet, or actually expect it to work out - I’m taking the best punt on offer at the odds available to me, but don’t consider it a winning hand.
Couldn't resist! Had to sign up myself. Fingers crossed for a better year.
My love of skiing and my fondness for Falls by far outweighs any negative feelings or animosity I have towards any corporation!
Steve Lee is apparently on his way to Wangaratta hospital for follow up and rehab.
I am tempted to tempt fate on a lift pass myself but I'd need to buy new boots because.
Could be good news, thanks for posting. Some vintage boots. Maybe time for an upgrade?
Would really like to upgrade but money is very very tight, a pair of S/H FullTilts in 30 would be about right tho
I think Falls is finished ,13 mm + rain today.
There's always next year, which when you think about it is almost this year, after all XMas is only a few months away and all the shops have decorations and fairy lights already.
And then the supermarket is selling easter eggs and cute chocolate bunnies in February and we are almost there.
Until Friday, 11 June 2021 at 5:00:00 pm
Oh stop! That's really really depressing.
Well Japan might be viable by February 2021.
Yes, I'm dreaming already. 6hrs to FC for me, 11 hrs to Tokyo Narita (includes drive to airport). Another 3-4 on the bus and we're in the mountains. For about the same price as a week's accomm at FC. Was hoping for late season NZ but not likely now.
Great news moondog, thanks for the update. Hope all goes well for him.
Is that a shoe tree? Was it grafted or did you bury your old boots?
Grafted of course.
I will have a question about new boots tho.
It’s buzzing in season- they were badly hit by the combination of the fires AND Ronageddon.
Looks like most of us can go and ski on the large amount of snow still around
Gotta be quick before it all goes...
Wet and warm 4 days coming up so it will be bushwalking after that.
Enjoy what you can when you can - time to go fishing...
Been doing that already. Slow start to the season and the wind lately has been terrible for fly fishing. This is all making us concentrate on getting all those other jobs out of the way and probably a good thing.
Text from FCRM this morning had chains being fitted at the Orange bridge
259 days to go...
Do people think they'll be any snow left for cross country skiing next Friday 2 Oct???
