    Hi Folks,

    I know SIC has not been organised for a while, but there's no stopping Mini/Micro/Pico... SICs!

    My wife and I will be skiing at Falls 4rd to 7th August 2017, and I know a number of the veteran Sno-Infoers will be going up that weekend (6th & 7th August). I'm sure we can manage a Mini SIC!

    Post here if you'll be there - let's do something apres-ski 6th August!

    Dinner for Saturday Night

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is a SIC?

    I will be at Falls 15-18 Aug. Any others from the forum likely to be there then also?

    SIC is a bit of an anachronism. It stood for Snow Info Conference from an old name for this site. SIC was an annual gathering of whoever from the forums felt like turning up for a wekend. It rotated through Falls, Hotham, Thredbo, Charlotte Pass, Buller & Perisher. The last one was in Thredbo in 2013. After that people lost interest, mainly due to the cost. Mini or micro SIC just means a smaller gathering of forumites at whatever resort they happen to be going to. There are probably a few of them each year.
