What's the fastest way to international from smiggins? Down to Telemark tbar then to quad and up perisher and across to international? Been a couple years and forgotten how I would do it. Cheers.
Probably line ball between that and Sun Valley T from mid station.

If the chairs are on hold, Telemark, Sturt, Lawson, skate a bit then to Sun Valley.

I got a ski locker, not a gear locker. Just to put the carve skis in so they're handy if the early morning playing surface is hard and fast. $74 for 7 days. IIRC gear lockers are around the same price.

They only do rates for 1-7 day hires. In past years when I've had 10 day trips, I've got away with paying for 7 days and having the use for 10, because there's no procedure for more than a 7 day hire. LOL But this year when I asked for a locker for 5 weeks, the dude said they only do up to 7 days and I'll have to come in every Friday and refresh it. Maybe Belinda is making a difference already?
Absolutely my experience this year. Skied for 11 days. Hired locker for 7 days. They handed me a key with no record of my name or which locker I was assigned. I kept the key for 10 days.

Lining up at Mitchell this afternoon, a woman in front of me and to my right, looking in my general direction, called out "look at the size of it". Naturally my first instinct was to check that my fly hadn't come undone.

Then I looked over my shoulder, expecting to see a tiny tot either having a big stack or slaying FV. Neither. It turned out the woman was looking at the jumps in the park. "It's ridiculous", she said, "they just get bigger every year".

So I got to explain that the park had recently been supersized for an international, world class competition.

Thank you, skidotcomdotau!

The bigger the better. It’s really just storage and gets pushed on to the Front Valley slopes as they thin late season.

The road in up at Perisher

Not to bad for most of the drive bit slippery on the crests, but otherwise just above 0 for the bulk of it from Wilson's up, so a bit of slushyness in it

The stupid escalation has claimed a few cars today. Ill equiped vehicles, conga line gets there too early for the plough and they are off by the side of the road.
All well and good telling people to leave early but the infrastructure, from food vendors, chain bay staff and ploughs isn't there to support it.

Perhaps she needs to be brought to the attention of TfNSW, NPWS and Perisher management so they can tell her to pull her bloody head in.

I mean, telling people to be there by 6 when the carpark doesn't open until 7? Makes it hard to finish ploughing the carpark, empty garbage skips etc.

Especially the morons over the road who are still partying on. In the middle of a crowded caravan park FFS.
You needed to walk over, introduce yourself, eat their food, drink their beer, woo their woman, then go back to bed. We could then change your name to newc nuclear hot-wombat

I think @skinavy is referring to that OTHER Facebook site set up by an individual in Jindabyne. Informative in some areas (and definitely preferable to the one you’re thinking about), but I agree that they’re over the top with the “get there before dawn” mantra.
