    Strange you should ask, “Tube Town’s younger brother” is there (next to an unexpected and somewhat “petite” ice rink on the mezzanine level around the back of the main arena):

    Says an olden person. I vaguely recall great times up to age ten ish.... various Shows. Melb, Bris, Canb, not ever Syd... loved the atmosphere, the scary rides, the annual 'treat' factor, the show bags. You lose that youthful enthusiasm as you get old and crusty. I will recapture by skiing @perisher soon.

    it's true that I'm old, but I don't often compare the easter show with skiing
    living in Surry Hills as a kid, the Easter Show was local and we went every year until I was about 12
    then I lost interest
    after we got person a we went to the show a couple of times, and were even there on the last Good Friday before it relocated
    in the showbag pavilion it was so packed with people that a fireman arrived and announced that they were evacuating the building
    after it moved to SOP, my brother and I took person a to the show and we watched the evening stuff in the big showring
    sitting on the ground it was colder than Perisher, not quite as cold as Åre

    That depends on what sort of system you're using.

    Few pics from SH today.







    Spotted a few young deer between the Smiggin and Nth P. Very surprised though to see a large stag wander across the front of SH on the way back.



    Some progress on Leichhardt.

    I read somewhere a notice that NPWS are doing aerial culling of deer , and other feral animals (not Brumbies) between the link rd and North / East Guthega rd back to the turn-off Kosci rd.
    have met quite a few last couple of years on the way thru down around the creeks and island bend turn-off.

    Great photos as always SMSkier! The 4th one demonstrates just how good a vantage point that spot can be, overlooking Blue Cow and back to Interceptor I suspect. I am surprised there is not some sort of winter trail up there? It would be a good spot for lunch on a reasonably calm day. Out of leased area perhaps?

    I must say I wasn't aware of all of the possible usages and meanings of the word "smiggins" until someone recently pointed this out to me
    https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Smiggins

    I was shocked:eek: For years I have been throwing this word around in casual conversation.

    I think it is best to stick to Smiggs;)

    It would appear there is considerable difference between Smiggin Holes and smiggins hole!

    Lift queues and ski runs look pretty clear of crowds though, ski straight on to the t even........ but I feel like there is something missing....
