    Here is a vid for anyone thinking of going to Selwyn. Its a great place for kids to learn. No hassle or attitude. Friendly staff. I almost wish the kids didn't ski well so I had an excuse to go back there.

    BTW Its the only resort in Australia you can get untracked powder all day after a dump. [​IMG]

    Crolly, could you perhaps upload it to Youtube? I'd like to share it on my page about our coming Selwyn trip, but I can't embed it with this vimeo clip.

    Thank you.

    Great video. My kids are now asking when we can go skiing again and can we ski trees and parks again this year.

    Fantastic video! Selwyn is my fav resort also, it just doesn't have the steeps or facilities to get anything but beginning to low intermediate stuff.

    Hey Crolly, at 57 seconds, did you run right over the slow sign?

    I know them cams distort vision but it looks pretty damning mate.

    I think he held the camera in his right hand and just lifted his camera over the sign. The direction of movement right before he align with the sign and sudden shift up of frame can support my theory.

    HAHA I'm sure wearing a box would have been a more 'ideal' idea

    I remember camping (yes in the middle of winter) for a few nights there on a school x-c ski trip in 1988. It snowed quite a bit.....so much so that a tall dude in our group could reach up and grab the t-bars for us so we could do a few runs without buying lift tickets [​IMG]
