    All ski towns have a huge over supply of accomodation in summer. Even though some places just close down for 8 months, there is cut-throat competion for customers among those that remain open. It's a buyers market. [​IMG]

    Okay, Thredbo, Falls Creek and to a lesser extent Dinner Plain are all year resort towns. Cruel people would say Buller, Perisher, Hotham and the smaller resorts have tumbleweeds rolling down the steets in summer.

    But even at Thredbo and Falls, anyone with a bit of nous can negotiate a very attractive price if they shop around [​IMG]

    The cruel people would be correct, but some people like it that way. The Pub is open, and there is pleanty of hiking, mountainbike riding, fishing etc to be done.

    Heaps of good mountain biking and excellent walks.

    Just a bit of a ghost town. Hopefully that will improve over the years with more awareness.

    Northern Hemp mountains the summer is peak period and the winters is their quieter period. Go figure. :thumbs: :thumbs:
