    In the latest Falls Creek book it tells you about a new feature this year, the Urban Junkyard but then goes to to say "You'll just have to wait and see"

    I wonder what it is, anyone think they know.

    The age of some of the oversnows would dictate that they should be in a junkyard.

    "Urban junkyard" - has to be something for snowboarders. Such a name would turn off all skiers.

    I agree. It invokes exactly the opposite image to what I would seek in a holiday destination.

    Why between the lodges, Falls is ski-in ski-out, just open the front and back doors of a number of lodges along the aqueduct and make your own way down to Halleys.

    Bear Mountain CA is the pinnacle of Junkyard creations.

    Not for new school skiers it wouldn't be.

    Your above comment is highly amusing.
