    Yeh no wurries piggy, I'll meet you for a beer. To find me just look for the tall dark handsome one at the bar surrounded by gorgeous women who are all buying me drinks and trying to get me drunk so they can take me home to bed.

    Oh and don't bother trying to find me on the mountain, I ski so fast all you'll see is a flash if your lucky to see anything at all!

    Gaggle of us heading down on Sunday for the week so I'll look out for you. Highly likely I'll bump into you first, as I bump into pretty much everyone... Which runs are you likely to hang out on? Touch wood, should be a good week: dumping on Sunday and bars full of gorgeous women, apparently...

    there is a nice base underneath so as long as the new snow doesnt cause too many problems then should be good

    New snow causes problems? Not likely.

    Funnelweb is open all the way to the bottom with minimal exposed shrubbage and rockage (and that's before tonights snowfall). I'm no Thredbo expert, but I'm told this is a decent indicator that it's a very good season.

    Ya, it's been a lot softer than they would want on the top half for the last week. The lower part is better.
