Ooo, and a nice subtle bit of self-promotion with the jacket there, Hotshot
Good afternoon miss_b_haven.
Did you have an enjoyable lunch?
thats not me...im elsewhere in the pic
<nonchalantly adding item onto to-do list>
But no, I don't eat it all myself. I usually can only manage half the Club and a handful of poon, and share the rest.
After all, a girl's gotta leave plenty of room for apricot mogul & hotchoc for a spot of afternoon tea.
A spot of tea..sounds delightful.
How fortunate we are to have such a well spoken and polite lady gracing us with her presence on these forums, unlike the gutter-mouth trash one usually finds on the internet.
I suppose that is one benefit of going to Buller....wanchors are usually well spoken with good manners.
Whothehellisshe and whatthehellisshedoininthisforu. . . ?
Well, in that case, pishtosh indeed.
My goodness gracious me, most certainly, to be sure.
Who the f##k are you pal??
When I wrote that comment I was actually referring to the gutter-mouth lady trash one usually finds on the internet ...who are usually snowboarders.
However...since you two characters took automatic offence to it...perhaps the cap does fit...
We have already chased off the "gutter-mouth lady trash one usually finds on the internet ...who are usually snowboarders" from this site.
They are now living in rural Victoria!
Stick it up your ring PG.
Getting back on track lads, here are some shots taken in September 1955 by Caz's father. He met Caz's mum there earlier that year.
You will note that the Bourke Street rope tow shot has been scanned in the wrong way round, as is the ski school chalet but you can imagine it how it was.
A brisk walk up to the summit
great shots! decent snow for september by the look of it.
A bit off topic, but this just got me really excited. My car (280,000 on the clock and still going strong), last Sunday, Sheepyard Flat:
I love my car.
Nah, September was always like that back then! (And so was June... and July... and August... and often October. But there's nothing wrong with the planet - it's in fine shape - and we'd be all be fools and communists to go suggesting otherwise)
Wizard - almost balmy in town tonight. 10 degrees right now in Highton.
I know, ive got the window fully open. Not even near cold.
Yep. Went for a walk earlier in a t-shirt.
Thulkes - always a fave! Nice shot.
Here's a few from recent years, I'll edit in the dates when im on my home pc.
Love all of em kasto. And I hate you for taking this shot. You evidently were one of the first on the hill... by the tracks under the chair and lack of folks on the chair!
That's actually not a ski run, and I would guess it was taken at the end of the day, as it's on the Horse Hill chair heading towards the carpark.
Yeah or first thing in the morning CM. When tirol is running ive seen people ski down, 'jump' the creek then straight on the t bar.
Just found some more...
could do with some of that
STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT!
No more photos!
Can't stand Wombat Bowl for the exact reason in the pic - heel side sideslipped by boarders. Plus a short run for a long traverse out and long lift ride and potentially a long lift line. .
Much better bang for your buck elsewhere.
But when it's the only thing open and it's 8am on a freshie day it's not too bad. I only consider it when it's open to the bottom, but even then if it's open to the bottom there are better things to ski IMO.
Past couple of seasons you havent had much choice though, so ill take it.
Oh yeah, where?
Just a few more, it sure was busy on these days
yeah yeah. i knew the smartarse comments were coming.
This is why we love our midweek skiing.
I remember skiing Wombat bowl before snowboarders existed.
I had an awesome powder day on Thulke's run before it was a marked run.
Yep, midweek + fresh =
We got some great midweek days in 08, bluebird and fresh like the pics.
09 seemed to favour the weekenders with fresh falls, my Tue.Wed.Thurs routine didnt do as well.
Except one Hotham day.
That was also back when Robins was actually skiable with less than 3m of snow.
What do you mean? I haven't skied Robin's Run in a while....so I don't know what's changed.
BTW I used to know 'Robin' ... does that up my Wanchor status?
I had one of my best powder runs on Robins in 2008 when it was open top to bottom. A few old farts, like myself, hit the run like kids and skiied top to bottom in one long sensational hit,and then colapsed at the Bottom Epic.
It's a little bit overgrown when compared to the keg and thulkes/outer edge. It's the last one you can ski which is unfortunate as it's the longest and IMO the best for natural hits, especially the 2nd section.
I don't ski Thulkes and Powder Keg as much as I used to. I prefer Outer Edge these days.
Too short, gotta use family run to get there, long traverse out, only worth it if there is not enough snow to ski the runs directly off wombat. You can have it to yourself PG
When Carveman says Boomerang..does he mean the piste or secret tree stashes in the area?
Secret means secret.
What's the first rule about Fight Club?
