    It really is. As with most things, the more you contribute to it, the more it gives back.

    There's days when I could, but my street is only about 4% grade. Even in my >55 dotage, that's pretty mild. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Welcome. Do you live in France?
    If so you’ll have to check out Italy and Austria. Just a few hours drive away and some great skiing to be had.
    I suppose if I had easy access to the mega French/Swiss hills I would have no real need to look anywhere else.

    Thought would join the club, a season off makes you think about places, so a start.

    Apologies for poor spelling, forgotten lots of places, so many obscure spots about Japan & the Alps. Find in Europe generally riding big off piste ski routes is part of most ski 'areas' & the Alps are so big mountain, convoluted & culturally diverse, it's very easy to loose yourself there.

    On the list: Backcountry is always the priority, but young kids cramping that a bit. The more places I go, the more places want to go to, the more you know, the less you know type thing.

    More time in Europe & northern Hokkaido. Dolomites have me hooked. Northern Hokkaido for perfect snow, but then miss then big heart in mouth terrain & technicality of the Alps. Some places go back repeatedly due to good experience / epic snow / terrain etc, some places go back to having seen the potential or with more time. US & Canada hasn't been on the list due to language & cultural barrier, but maybe that is just me. Kamchatka always a dream. Should really go back to distant roots in Afghanistan....

    Hi there, I've lived most of my life in France and as a kid we would spend all the school holidays in Switzerland. I've learnt to ski on three runs next to a tiny village. Some of these resorts are closed now due to lack of snow.
    I live in China now, so we go to Japan. I don't know when I'll next ski in Europe. I sort of miss the scale of European resorts and the beauty of the mountain ranges there, but the snow in Japan got me completely hooked. I will try one of the Chinese resorts at some point but right now, it's all about Japan:)

    Just occurred to me that in 2018 I skied at a single ski resort. That's unusual.

    I like it. Refreshingly different. And ultimately sustainable too.
    *Meanwhile I have just booked to fly on a pollution spewing aircraft to ride lifts that require heaps of energy to run.

    I have actually skied Brisbane several times!
    I worked weekends at Snowbiz (ski shop) in the mid 90s and we got invited to ski weird places. There was a guy who made his own snow at the Ferny Hills woolshed (Western suburbs Brisbane) and we went to test it out. We also skied Mt Cootha for a channel 9 promotion where thy put down 30 m of fake snow. And of course Expo 88.

    Do you have any anecdotes or memories of it? I'm trying to write a 1000 word history of the Expo 88 chairlift and handle tow for a ski history article on Australia's dozen weirdest ski lifts and it's difficult to find any more than I wrote in a short summary at https://www.australianmountains.com/australianskilifts#18.2

    Since that was written a month ago I've had several enquiries asking for more information, including one from a bloke in Germany wanting to know which company built them. But I've found nothing more. So any stories, photos or fragments of information would be appreciated. :)

    I'll be out at my mums place sunday so she might have some old pictures...i was about 13 years old so just remember lining up for hours to do some turns. It had a little rope tow to the top and it was a pretty short run, probably only 5 or 6 turns. They had a ski hire type set up at the bottom as well as the whole Swiss restaurant vibe. I'll pm you if anything is found.
