    It’s on again, the Selwyn 24 Hour Ticket Blitz $39, this Fri 22 Feb.
    Cheapest lift pass in Australia.
    It may be two old chairs, a t-bar and a poma, but if you are a beginner skier it’s all you need.

    A big thumbs up for that. And they could stay a week in Cooma for little more than some places in Jindabyne or on snow charge for a weekend night.

    Fair drive from Cooma. Hadawhingetome isn't any more expensive.

    And to tick it off.

    I did boot deep with the kids first outing '04.
    Perfect starter for the family.
    Great value this deal.

    Yeah just got back to this thread. The penny dropped about 2am when I said it out loud for no apparent reason.

    When I have better signal, I'll check out G maps and find out where it is relative to Selwyn.

    Grabbed a couple. I hope to get a few trips in this year, so Selwyn could be an option for an August weekend when Perisher's a zoo.

    Mobile site didn't have the tickets though. I had to fire up my lappie and use the full site.

    Never been to Selwyn, so why not? Bit of cheap fun. Done.

    Huh, I missed that - but then again, I wasn't going to be going there, so I didn't look too closely.

    With all of these deals you have to do your due diligence. There is currently an offer going for Snowbird in Hotham, but it's only for very late season. If you had their social media on your feed, you could have got their rooms for far less this week, as they were doing a $160/n offer for a 4-bed room.

    I bought this about a week ago, but now a bit nervous on how easy it would be to redeem. It says the redemption must be done 48h in advance and a printed voucher must be presented, does that imply you need to be there physically 48h beforehand - effectively locking you in for a whole weekend there and paying full price for the other 2 days passes?! :/ (Hopefully not, and that we can just call, book, and the voucher is just to present)

    There’s a phone number, I’d ring and book. I have friends with the same voucher must give them a heads up.

    I think what it means is that you need to buy the Groupon voucher at least 48 hours before.
    Last year I brought one the day before and it was fine it's just that there is some delay in the system between Groupon sale and them getting a list of what was sold.
