    Some would say you’re doing it wrong.
    Firstly you can ski both overseas and here each year. I have experienced great conditions in Oz and when I don’t get good conditions it makes me appreciate Northern Hemisphere conditions even more.
    Secondly the Colorado Rockies offer some fine skiing and I’ve had a great time there many times but there are other options relatively close by that offer better odds of powder skiing. Snowbird offers perhaps the best lift served combination of snowfall quality and quantity and terrain on the planet?
    There’s plenty of other great options in the US too but remember Canada, Japan, Austria, Italy, France and Switzerland have some cool mountains too.

    Thredbo over Perisher for me.

    I would politely request that anyone who doesn't like skiing in OZ fk the fk off from an Australian ski site, or they may get burnt. Leave us to argue over whether Perisher or Thredbo are the best resorts in the country, as both are obviously superior to those other places further south.

    so I guess your not skiing for a while then.....

    As others have said, I have had some awesome days skiing in Aus and abroad, and some shut days skiing Aus and abroad. Either way they are all good days as I’m skiing.

    then again I’d like to think I’m a good enough skier to ski all conditions :fishing: most people I see making statements like this aren’t.

    Don't worry, mods will take care of it when the other shoe falls.
