    That is true but getting back without any issues at the border was the issue. My understanding was that interstate travel still needed to be somewhat essential (e.g work, compassionate grounds, etc).

    yes - all next week for rocketboy. screen printed 2 last page and then final confirmation page.

    keep reloading shop page in a separate tab until you get to the login page.

    then as astro said last week - just be patient while the circle thingie spins around. in most case it won't time out. - just let it grind away and you should be okay.

    If you tallied up all the time applied to reserving or buying tickets the cost of a days skiing would be adding up.

    Wouldn’t let me assign reservations and then got kicked out & now can’t get in - had the same experience before & now completely fed up! Didn’t book for Hotham as was going to Falls, and then Vail postponed the Falls date. Vail isn’t exactly covering itself with glory here - for them it’s just as well they have a monopoly!

    You'll be okay - I am not aware of anyone not getting their pass if it is in the cart.

    Yesterday we decided to cancel our accom booking. Not paying all this money, drive 3000km & put up with all this ticketing crap, throw in some Victorians not following advice, all that and with natural snow mediocre at best just leaves us with very little choice.
    Good luck everyone, hope 2021 will be a better year!

    It's not a competition but I do sometimes ponder ....

    Is 10 runs down the V8 equal to one run down High Noon :D:confused:

    Do I press refresh or just keep circling around in their loop - which has so far opened about 35 windows?

    No where near!

    10 runs at 8.30am is heaven! I love front valley with no crowds!

    Also much better on the early season Legs to do 10 short runs!

    Chrome Ctrl W to close the "wait here" tab.

    It the the pas holder page that gets you into the shop.

    I got in again and then the page after the billing address page is this.

    I managed to get in at ~8:32 and get all days into the cart, but couldn't assign them and got booted back out.
    Sitting on the "Stay here for updates" page and refreshing.

    Not to take your question too seriously but a rough estimate (based off dashboard badges, because stats for 2020 aren't working for me): 20000m / 200 runs = ~1k vert for 10 runs on V8.
    What's the vert on High Noon?

    Close the tab it opens if its not the shop.

    Repeat

    I have got back in 3 times doing that. falls over on billing page. and kicks you back to the above link.

    The "stay here" page is a furby

    Even if it says couldn’t assign it does in some cases. Don’t throw any back in the pool to restart. I’m also locked out with an incomplete process but as @Ozgirl says - stay with it.

    Last week I came back to a cart after being locked out for 2 hours and could finally complete the process

    It's all tongue in cheek, no good getting upset with anything this mad winter, a few turns, a bit of banter, some wandering in the side country and .... yelling at technology.

    A whole new perspective on "earn ya turns".

    Only one resort open in Victorian so ya'all competing with Mexicans and all the locals that ditched DaBo.

    Crazy times, good humour :thumbs::)
