    Blasphemy. The Village pies are a winner - served at Thredbo owned outlets. And made in Dubbo.

    Yeah, they've done away with that wall that used to split the room between the entrance chamber (with the coat hooks) and the bar itself. Makes the room feel a lot bigger.

    Kuma pies are the bomb. On another note Nimmitabel bakery opening in Nuggets Crossing where Gloria Jeans used to be. They make good pies too. Might keep Sundance on their toes.

    Sundance USED to be the best pies but that was a long, long time ago. They were already going downhill when I still lived up there. Their Thai curry pies were the best ever.

    Sundance have been going down hill for a while IMO, they just seem a little sterile now. The old croissant with ham and cheese sauce use to be a favourite but even that isn’t as cheesy as it was so has lost the appeal.

    Ullr will be interesting with the new bar and new front area. That said I’ve found it seriously it and miss with staff over the last few years. One or two staff members are awesome but the others give the feeling of not wanting to serve you unless you have a local card.

    Interesting. We've found the service at ULLR to be outstanding over the last 3 years, and even though we're friends with the manager, we sure as hell can't play the local card with all the other staff in there. I thought you'd be almost considered a local Zac?!

    Aaron looked after me last time I was there, Renos almost done, but not. They had a group in, and were pretty frazzled. Went to Burger Bar the next night, it was normal full, and they were frazzled. Someone not regular like me, would have thought the service at both was poor, friendly, but poor.

    It looks to me that a few new places are opening in Jindy, I think the bar might finally lift a bit in the hills. Has been slowly, area is still behind some other smaller holiday areas.

    Bit like the 'quaint' lodges, with hallways a shoulder width, not many people want that anymore, time to modernise.

    I’d like to think so, my place is about 50m from Ullr and I’ve drunk enough with Sean in there (and @telecrag). Last year we didn’t spend as much time there as they got rid of Jock which I thought a strange decision. The young guy behind the bar is always friendly enough. That said I have a few friends who own in Woodbridge and I can’t pay them to eat there anymore.

    Not a lot has changed, a little more bling that’s it.

    The coffee shop / bar upstairs at nuggets is very good! Great coffee.

    **2019 Winter reporting**

    Had the lamb shoulder at Candlelight lodge on the opening weekend. Still super tasty :p. They've swamped the accompanying sides from the shiitake mushrooms and eggplant to a baked cauliflower which was also nice.

    A new addition to the menu is the "La Potence" which we saw several other tables order. Was very theatrical and looked delicious! Will definitely be ordering it next visit! Service, vibe and wine still excellent :thumbs:

    As a new cost saving measure, we are avoiding the restaurants this season. Just cooking at the campsite.

    It was also a bit off a hassle with the kids and getting into places. By the end of the day skiing (then at the pool) they were grumpy and just wanted food and to rest (So did I)

    Might still do an occasional burger bar or the pizza shop though. They were my favourites

    We usually do one dinner out but eat in, either at the lodge or with friends the rest of the week. We do buy lunches and that is expensive enough :eek:

    Yes gets rather spenny eating in the village and on the mountain every week.

    It’s fun to cook around the campfire though. We found that the pan au chocolat from Aldi, when jammed onto a stick and toasted over the open fire crisp up beautifully and turns the chocolate inside all soft and runny. It’s our new go to lazy camping dessert :p

    Have you tried the Billyboil thermal cooker? It's my latest find for camping. Just brown your meat and veg. Heat it all up with the sauce or stock in the morning and leave it to do its thing while you ski. Come back to a hot meal where you just need to cook the rice, pasta or whatever. It's great for spag bol or chilli.

    I read that Kareela Hutte is opening for dinner in July and August this season so rang to book today for mid August - booked out! Bah! The kids would have loved it.

    I am afraid that they wouldn’t have...loved it that is as they are only running wine dinners. Should be fun but think of the money you saved as the cheapest one was $175!

    The dinners are held in conjunction with a winery such as Penfolds, Brokenwood etc and as I understand it they match wines from whichever winery night it is with food and they take you up and back in a snowcat.

    Would have loved to have gone to the Brokenwood one but it seem that they are being held on Wednesdays which doesn't suit us unfortunately.

    Thankfully Kareela's normal wine list is very good and their prices are very reasonable so well just stick with Saturday lunches.

    Thanks for that. Yes we will do a long lunch one day during the week.

    Do they still have the same schnapps range?

    They haven’t opened as yet so I am afraid I cannot answer this. Maybe this weekend if the Supertrail opens.

    If the wines and food are well matched these can be amazing. One of the best culinary experiences I have ever had was Leeuwin Estate wines with food cooked by Tony Bilson matched to the wines.

    They announced a while ago they were planning to open this Friday (28/06) but with the supertrail not yet open I think it might be delayed. :cry:

    We did many wine dinners at Segreto back in the early 2000s. Brokenwood, Penley Estate and countless more. They were fantastic and well worth the $$ (though a lot cheaper than they are now though)

    A new groomer being downloaded this morning. Apparently the front is a new park groomer and the cabin at the back will go on another cat and become quite classy Kareela transport.

    In all of my 30+ years of skiing in Thredbo I've never eaten at Kareela Hut.

    Slow meals on the snow have never been a strong point for me, so it's generally a quick stop at Frostbite or before it opened, Black Sallees and on our way. Then when the kids came along it started as a quick bite at Friday flat, then on to Merritts as they got older. If the wife and I get time alone we'd end up at Eagles Nest. Come to think of it I haven't been to Black Sallees in quite a few years.

    We never do slow meals on ski holidays overseas or anywhere other than Thredbo either. But for us at least, Thredbo is a different type of holiday. You should do Kareela one day though, it's a lot of fun, especially if you're lucky to catch Brandi in the driver's seat. And it doesn't have to be an all afternoon effort.

    The best part of Kareela is watching people try to put their skis on after their lunch.

    I have carried the odd part goer down from Kareela.

    One very funny memory helping a very drunk female local down late one afternoon. This woman was the former owner a very nice mountain inn, bar & bistro in Thredbo. She's a classic.

    I feel like the kareela lunch, ski/bum slide down is a right of passage to all thredbo skiers. (i was too poor a ski bum to afford it in my days!)

    My last kareela lunch was marred by an incident, hoping to enjoy my next rossi ladies day lunch betterer this year!

    Just be careful of the "under the bench" schnapps options. A few years ago there was a nice chap in a Captain's hat behind the bar, offering shots that didn't appear on the regular menu to snowboarders who ordered their drinks with knowing glances. The drinks in question seemed to be made of stupidly hot chili, schnapps, and what I can only surmise was molten lava. Stupid me thought it'd be a good idea to try one, and not long after, had to shamble down the steel stairs in ski boots as fast as I could, like a malfunctioning Robocop, desperate to avoid an Engadine Maccas-like incident.

    Not a good time.

    I don’t think we will get in for a Kareela wine dinner - maybe we should do a wine filled lunch and butt slide instead! LOL
