    Its that time of year again.
    My FB feed has gone crazy with all the pros arriving from the Northern Hemisphere to compete and train on Perishers front valley park. It being world standard and all.
    Its not uncommon to see 6....7 Olympic medalists just chilling around you at the pub. Stale sandbech...Sage Kostenberg...Bobby Brown... Silje Norendahl... Seb Toots... Max Parrot... the creme of freestyle riding.
    Pretty awesome for Australia....

    If she knocked me off a Tbar I would make sure she landed on top of me.

    Was pretty cool @Donza, I was down there to shoot some of it, photos and vids never really do big air justice compared to standing next to it.

    Pulled into the Pub below FV Park for a quick bite and refreshing ale a few weeks back - and well, ended up having 4 schooners because the talent on display over the last few visible jumps was so awesome. There were a couple of pro's making the big air and wicked tricks look so easy. It dawned on me that Perisher should capitalise on such potential with a bar right next to the park - long and skinny. There's room for it. I experienced something like it Slovakia and it was one of my fondest mountain memories. The stacks (let's face it, we all love em!) were just as entertaining. The beauty of the season passes now is that you can often slow down a bit and take in the atmosphere. It's all about the experience.

    Don't know if it was one of these world's best riders, but I saw a boarder come out of the Park on Sunday at speed, take a right turn and ride straight onto the empty side of a t-bar. No un-strapping, no skating, just straight on. Never seen that before.
