    Don't get me wrong, it looks fantastic for June 6, I just didn't see the point of a captain obvious type "looks flat" comment for a green beginners slope.

    "looks flat" has become a universal term of endearment.. I reckon when someone nails that tassie couloir someone else will comment 'looks flat'. About the only things it doesn't get used on are chaos havoc and Kate......

    They sure are .car park full . Quad on slow due to wind . If the wind picks up its curtains for the quad .surprise surprise . $79 day tix ,peak festival,loads of season pass holders down for the weekend ,and loads who bought them when offer extended till last tues with white all over the cams . Season passers will give up pretty soon and go . Should be less hectic this arvo if quad can keep going. A shame happy isn't open , not being able to make snow last night probably killed it .

    Yep, sure is hectic. I have retired to the back of the car to escape for a while in the hope that some will get tired of the crowd and head home. Found myself next to @Astro66 in the quad line as he was heading up for his last run this morning. Must introduce myself next time. Is good fun though despite the crowd.

    For the more tech challenged amongst us, does anyone know what a 'full price' season pass for children is right now?

    I asked at the ticket office today, they aren't selling season passes anymore....at least until Vail says so (so I'm assuming they're waiting for something...)

    Riding Mitchell T on Saturday, looked to my right, and had my eyes gouged out by a the sight of someone in a yellow jacket and yellow check pants. Still trying to identify them so that I can sue for damages ROFL

    If you were on Mitchell T, looking right, you would be looking at the kiddies ski school area.

    Driving up for the day on Monday with Mr 9. Looks like I may not get the chance to renew my acquaintanceship with my bete noire from last year, Goats Gully, given the forecast (how many laps of FV can we do?).
