    love your work... but you can't really be bitching about a queue at Grimus after showing everyone how to get there.
    Cow Camp looks very nice. Are they loading Northside/Horse Hill at mid-station?
    Not everyone loves T-bars as much as you do... prefer a bit of a sit down to save the legs for turns ;)

    A lot of them came from the village via Mercedes Chair to Grimus too, don't blame them, it was excellent.
    Yeah Cow Camp was excellent, groomed with fresh cover on top.
    I like T bars because you can get off before the top which is great when the wind is blowing hard up top and some places like Kofflers you can get off where the Summit chair starts or near trails or in case of Cow Camps is you just want to do laps of it without going all the way up.

    Well I didn't see myself in the vid like I thought I might but you had the co-founder of Rip Curl just behind you at one stage!

    Anyone who was anyone was probably down there on the day.

    Everyone I spoke to later during the day said "Yeah I was there too"

    I do enjoy your commentaries, they're more fun and interesting than the usual "what I did skiing" videos, so I've gone through most of them. :)
