    This is kinda an odd concept? Having inter schools in the state of Victoria at a real ski resort.... I'm struggling with that concept. :p

    Not sure if this is appropriate LOL or :oops: or :eek: or :cry:
    Either way snow comps happen where ever there is snow, Falls makes sense :)

    I would say there would be more than one victorian who is jealous of the choice to go with falls, over the ever reliable *cough *cough buller

    There's actually two SA interschools for some reason. One at Falls and one at Buller.

    Nope, only one Interschools - at Falls Creek. Buller run an event targetted at South Aussies at the same time.

    They are both interschools events, with the same ability to qualify for nationals.

    Yeah. Looks like Buller's trying to take over. :( Hope the Falls event succeeds.

    about 12 years ago the ASC did a review of several sports including snowsports to push an agenda about a unitary national structure with state branches
    this was at least partly to address the fragmented Victorian situation
    I don't recall hearing of this bizarre situation in SA
    it really shouldn't be possible to qualify for nationals via both structures

    I thought SA Interschools were always held at Buller. Well, there you go.

    As an aside, IIRC BSL was actually formed by an Adelaide based company / family business. They first started skiing at Falls Creek, then started skiing at Buller, eventually merging Orange and Blue lifts and later sold to Grollo. They still retain ownership of Breathtaker.

    Woohoo, massive increase in entries, up by 50% from last year. Loads of excitement from the kids and their families. Really proud of the team. Now to see these keen little racers in action later this week! Thanks for your interest everyone!

    Don't forget to be an agitated angry parent at the top of the course push other kids out of the way, stomp around, make sure someone is taking times at the bottom of the course, generally try and replicate the behaviour of the QLD parent in the orange and black jacket at the recent NSW/QLD event. Otherwise how else do you expect to discourage your kids from a lifetime of wasting their money in the snow!! :):p:D

    On a serious note, have a great time, hope all the kids are safe and happy at the comp!!
