Fess up and tell us what it was like
sadly not.... <sigh.....>
disclaimer : was only 17 and hadn't started skiing yet
@CarveMan - what boots are they?
You see the boots???
Anyway purple bunny def wearing Langes
Did you say boots?.
the one in purple is wearing Lange - in keeping with the tedious Lange cheesecake thing
Me and a few mates had tickets courtesy of a Sport & Rec camp that year - but the HSC trials forced us to cancel.
Shoulda gone anyway, it's not like I studied that much.
I remember a few black flys VIP parties....
@CarveMan grabbed any old boots - he was more particular about the underwear and leg gators he wore
@CarveMan would have been about 8 years old (??) +/- a few years.
I seem to recall reading an article about that................
so he lived vicariously
Reading that copy today makes you realise just how much the world has changed - that advert is pre-AIDS and the last days of 70's sexual liberalism is still hiding between the lines - and it's not so much that the times were a conscious manifestation of nasty intent and ill-advised male chauvinism - they were just different.. way less uptight about gender relations.
Lange is an anagram of angel. Feel like their marketing team could have used this somehow.
Rear Entry . Remember this about the time first tried AT skis up Tate .
How are you going to work this into the multi-volume saga of the AAWT traverse?
Now that I think about it a bit more, pretty sure the lovely old couple from the family that were running the Guthega Alpine Resort were still talking about that party when Ian and I used to stay with them on Snow Cam safari circa 98~02.
@Ian D ??
We loved staying there, place was a circus but the right kind of circus. Excellent family business hospitality and sooo many mad characters as part of the year-round crew - all with wild stories of days gone by.
How did Lange not glean the angel angle?
Not sure they missed it...
Hah .... all winter was a playboy party
This one time .... there was a lifty accommodation hutte and a T bar below the road on the dam side in much merry making was made
Just one time?
That's far too clever for this or any website. The late Australian golfer Ken Nagle who won the 1960 British Open would have appreciated it!
Huh, I just didn't read it that way. I wonder if Penthouse or Playboy could team up with Perisher and run the same event again this year or next? Paging Richard from marketing
Yep, like the hot waitress that they had one season that earned extra after dinner had finished most nights but was notoriously late for the breakfast shift.
.... only if pixelated nipples
Why has it taken so long to post this?
Guthega had an Entertainment Centre???????
They should have been wearing these.
That's such an excellent question. 3rd or 4th paragraph for those who missed it.
Out of the whole article, this fact was my WTF moment. Guthega pub or Nordic Centre??
Before amalgamation that concrete monstrosity at the bottom was a thriving barely functioning hub of commercial activity. There was a cafe and ski hire and I don't remember what else.
Stairs and toilets and more stairs.
"who was at the party?"
I wish I was with those women there.
83 was a rather Hedonistic year at the Frying Pan Inn.
I was still at Uni in 83' and we had both a Penthouse Pet AND a Playboy Bunny as neighbors - does that count? They lived on a diet of chocolate and champagne. Whilst we had lots of parties, sadly, none were at Guthega Entertainment Centre.
Passion, delight and wreckless flare- Falls Creek 1983.
Was about the time i started camping andsmoking home grown stuff, we where
Camping down the road at island bend
Went up to Guthega pub on poolcomp nights to try and fund our trips.
Never on the same night.
One of my friends was a playboy bunny (or a penthouse pet, I can’t remember).
She spent a lot of time in the mountains, but a few valleys south of Guthega. And a decade later than the above ad.
You read the articles?
As to the OP
Suspect the only person within this forum who was actually at the party was @Skipress
Quite a good little ski shop on the main level. Not enough seating. Not enough heaters. Not enough toilets (after a couple of seasons they installed portable ones outside, out the door next to the cafe counter on the main level). Too many steps.
The steps where for running up as the pre ski warm up.
Okay if you were Adrian “Budgie” Baker with those weird soft Nava boot/binding contraptions he used. For those of us with Lange Thermofit boots (which were even more rock-hard than usual after the drive up from Berridale) you needed to take pain killers just to be able to get up those stairs.
Every morning in Raichle Comps, a hell of a racket on that Aluminium edging.
That centre is built to last 100yrs and it's a great pity it's not a wonderful lunch spot.
According to the linked article: ".... the 1983 Ski Season launch, remembered by many for the snow bunnies from Australian Playboy and Cold Chisel in concert for Guthega's Playboy grand final as much as for the great season of ski events."

Talk about hedonism: Playboy bunnies and Cold Chisel. Somebody would have to remember being there.
Are you sure about that ?
(definitely not me, I was too young)
