    After 35 years back to back at Perisher.... I just bought 4 x Thredbo365 passes......

    I have only ever been to Thredbo to carry gear for my (now) adult kids....

    This had better be good!!!

    With four passes, you'll have your work cut out for you.

    Frankly I am over the crowds clogging up the facilities, the lifts, the eating establishments, the friggin' carpark.... Even if Thredbo is no better - it will be different for a while...

    I married a ski lodge in Perisher. That meant I switched from a diehard Thredbo skier to a Perisher skier. It can be done. I didn't even have any noticable twitches.

    Rule number 1 - If there's snow on the ground there's fun to be had.

    Yeah nah.... The adult kids pay for their own - I also have two littlies at 9 and 5....

    AND... I don't mind subsidising the adults skiing a little bit - I didn't spend 15+ years (each) creating ski buddies that can't come skiing with me because they are broke....

    I think the two resorts are different enough that they complement each other. Variety is the spice of life!

    Welcome! I do hope that you are not disappointed because Thredbo has had some fairly major problems this year as well. The queues have been very long over the weekends especially on wind hold days, the parking was full on about 6 days, and most of the food is still very average. That said we do have some great skiing.

    Enjoy the 365 pass as summer is terrific here.

    I hear that loud and clear. F20 (fulltime uni student) is now a really good skier (skis rings around me) but it looks like it's only me and her available for a ski trip next january, +1 thinks she should be paying her own way by now, not just for this trip but for any family overseas holiday apart from "compulsory" family events. If that holds then it's just me for a ski.

    As you might imagine, I'm not in total agreement with +1 on this item...

    I still have my VFR, but last year I bought an 03 ZX6RR dedicated track bike. It's wild down the island!
