    Good one. But Thredbo isn’t that rare.:)
    Seriously though. How many people were on the hill the day you were at Yellowstone Club? I don’t suppose you were lucky enough to get a powder day?

    Through old family friends, got to stay there as a guest for 10 days and man the contrast to Thredbo or even Big sky. No lines at any point except for right at the beginning of the day, 30 seconds line when it snowed overnight (about 20 inches) and freshies found everywhere all day. Heard some pretty crazy stories whilst there. Free food all day everywhere, really was the dream all on top of great snow and terrain. Probably Average 50 people on hill that are members most days

    You're describing a typical midweek day at Apex.

    Really fun!

    Snow was low tide and could see the bike infrastructure under the lifts, as I could at Pila. The whole Aosta Valley looks to be MTB heaven, many of the Cham-ites head through there to ride.

    We are truly the lucky country when all of us have shown how far afield we have travelled for the white bliss. I bet we piss on the NH folks as to how far they travel for it. :)

    Decent spray. Enough to write your name in the snow. ( dotting the “i” is very difficult)

    Mine's embarrassing, but here it is:

    Charlotte Pass
    Thredbo
    Perisher

    Jahorina
    Bjelašnica

    The last 2 are in Bosnia, which at least makes my list a bit unique. Hopefully I'll be able to do Japan and NZ in the next couple of years.

    Grindelwald, Kleine Scheidegg and Lauterbrunnen - really these are just Wengen (unless you skied through the bush back down to Lauterbrunnen, s'pose that would count as "BC" LOL). You don't get 4 for 1

    Because pedant... ;)

    Fair.
    I say the same for Niseko.
    I suppose it’s when you’re familiar with the area you don’t split it up, when you’re not you do.
    Lists be hard :p
    But it’s awesome keeping a record - every time I go back through the list I go “ohhh yeahhhh - we went THERE!”

    Yes I’ve grouped most ones like that together, apart from Val d’Isere/Tignes, also Courchevel/Meribel/Val Thorens cos they are all so f-ing massive and very different towns, also La Thuile / La Rosiere because they are in different countries, and Whistler / Blackcomb cos that’s what it was back in 1998.

    Definitely... It gets tricky when you say Val d'Isere and Tignes - someone comes along and says "but Espace Killy!" Then you say "but I went to both before they were Espace Killy" (you'd have to be older to have done so)...

    You could argue for the Chamonix and Aspen ski areas to be ‘uncoupled’ because they are totally separate, can’t ski between them (except Brevent/Flegere) and require some form of road transport to get to one another, both in the same valley and on the same ticket of course.

    ie you could list Ajax, Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass as separate resorts because they aren’t linked, they’re just in the same valley and operated by the same company.

    And then you have the tiny little single chair places - LOVE discovering them, and they always get a spot for themselves on the list, yet these interconnected resorts you could stay in one bit the whole time. But fair call - I’ll come back and edit when I get some spare time. List getting long anyway :p. But imma keep the references to the different bit of the whole because otherwise I’ll forget where I’ve been. Damn Oldtimers!

    It can be tricky. Often small distinct ski areas are later joined and known as one area. Many examples
    eg. I skied Guthega long before it was linked to Perisher.
    Niseko Hirafu/Higashiyama/Annupuri were previously all on different tickets.
    Skied Fieberbrunn before and after it was linked to the Saalbach ski circus.
    Bad Hofgastein / Badgastein
    Akakura Kanko/Onsen
    Shiga Kogen/Yokoteyama/OkuShiga
    Hachimantai Panorama / Shimukura

    Reminder that I should probably update my list. Not very much new as I have pulled back in recent years to just returning to favourite countries Austria, Japan, NZ.

    This thread revival gives me an idea. We've all but given up on a Mexico trip this winter, and going to Australia to see family is a non starter as well. I'd usually travel to volunteer at races somewhere in the west, but the calendar is severely cut this year, with just a few simple regional races left. Certainly no world cup or Whistler Cup. So I think I'll do a road trip and check off a few of the really obscure little BC ski hills. Central/Northern BC looks likely, I can stay with family in Smithers, head west to Terrace (Shames), then use Prince George (friends there for accoms) as a base for day trips to Purden and Taber, and for sure a drive north through MacKenzie to the legendary Powder King. The drive south from PG on hwy 97 offers side trips to little local hills outside Quesnel and 100 Mile House. There's even Harper Mtn near Kamloops.

    Ok my winter holiday is on, thanks to the forums!
