Sometimes it's good, really good.
Look behind him.
I've been down it on a day like that, and it was amazing
Yeah ok, you got me!
I've had it better than that...
August 2 or so 2004.
Deep storm cycle with so much fresh...
We had another day in August that year...when my mate fell in the creek..
that wouldn't be enjoyable.
back first... bum and arms under water...
spent a couple of hours under the hand dryer at the River Inn
the mid station on the gondola , is that anything more than a load / unload station ? no refreshments etc ?
That's where the cabins will be stored o/n.
It's just a mid-station, load and unload in both directions. Food and drink is available at the top and bottom stations only. The building at the mid-station is the carrier shed, where the Gondolas are stored and maintenance is undertaken.
I work in health too and cancelled June and July.
Should cancel August too .
Crossing fingers and everything else to hope my husband finds a job and the slopes are open in September.
Don’t knock it until you tired it lol
not that creek, but I ended up in a stream elsewhere on the mountain. Got stuck, was by myself and took about 15 minutes of panicking before I finally hit solid ground on the side and crawl out.
Do not recommend.
Snowboard or skis?
My mate caught a heel side edge trying to stop.
Got flipped in. Slide down into water.
Board was highside.
Your post would indicate that you dislike the run because you find it to challenging.
Don't get bitter get better.
No. My post suggests it's a shit run. Always has been. Always will be. It is the sort of run that people only do so they can say they did it (and pretend they liked it), not for the pleasure of the thing.
I quite enjoy it, on the odd occasion that it is either properly skiable, or sometimes when its sketchy, but have to be in the mood, as its hard work (when sketchy) on the tele. Unreal fun when its fresh. Maybe not my favourite run on the hill, but I like it. Wiamea, into PowderBowl into Shuss is a great run.
What is a good run is not fixed. It varies with time. It's about being on the best run at any given point in time. So if schuss has untracked fresh snow when the rest of the ski area is tracked out, it may be the best run available at that particular time.
But it's also subjective. One of them most enjoyable aspect of skiing for me is negotiating the less than ideal areas without falling or damaging gear. So a run like schuss in the early season can be very enjoyable for me, even if conditions are marginal.
The only time I bother is first thing after a solid fall otherwise I agree with you,. It is normally rutted out icy and terrible from people trying to ride it, after a nice dumb though it is amazing.
And you can tell your mates in the pub afterwards. Winning.
What puzzles me is that this great experience is not reflected in crowds of people tripping over each other for the experience.
I like it all patchy in spring, when you can still sketch out the bottom without taking them off.
I don't tend to ski where the crowds are all that much, IMO many enjoy groomers more than anything, horses for courses, well entree at least. If everyone was out poaching it would take the shine off it anyway. It is a bit like BC, it takes effort and a mindset.
I.e. Telling mates in pub.
Not why I do it.
Its a bit like Sponars on a great day, but for some its hell, so we tend to get those days to ourselves.
Hows old mate with the selfie stick?
I was shredding it yo...yew
I ski it from time to time and I like it on those days..... I like the Telecrag line as a punishing way of finishing the day. Don't ski it to brag.
Question is, will it stay open after the Gondola opens? When it's open, it will become quite the show for those on their way up, spectators will learn very quickly those who are in over their heads and those who are not.
I just had a look at the date, Sunday 12/8/18 at 9.03am. We were a bit late getting to Gunnbarrel and the queue was horrendous. So I suggested Easy Does It, then magic carpet and across too Merritts mid. In hindsight it probably wasn't worth it.
Schuss and Dream run are not really the reason I go into that area, if you know what I mean.
Well noone really wants to hear about that lumped up groomer that everyone else experienced.
Pub stories are usually better when there is a bit of a twist in the plot. Tripped up by the frozen - in branch loop, the lost ski, the lost skier, the 90 minute boot pack, the we nearly fell in the creek, the fresh run you got at 12pm.
I went left deep into those trees one day and had a challenging time getting through. Also started to worry I was going to get lost too.
Days on the T's with all the dry windblown and a freshly exfoliated face to go with....... beautiful!
1hr later on that same day. Looks reasonably exfoliate free, probably wasn't.

Hopefully it receives better upkeep than this one.
The bottom station is nearing completion too. Heated concrete being installed.
Biggest boot warmer, i've ever seen.
I am excited to not be able to use it this season
Hang on... what?!
What is this looooxury?
It's Thredbo darrrrrrrling
Are they taking cues from Buller now?
...I'm sorry I don't get the reference I've never been to Buller
They have lots of heated concrete because its hard to find chains for the range rover with low profile tyres and the little darlings will catch a cold if they have to walk to the lifts.
Pretty sure the stairs from to info toward the pub ( red bus stop ) are heated ..long time .
And the concrete corner on bobuck lane...............
