    I'm up for it. I'm so up for it I packed my bag for my first trip last weekend. Ready. To. Go.

    Bucket loads of days set this year. About 18 days locked in so far with another 10 or so to be locked in soon. I did "like" PB just now on FB in case they open early but the Thredbo season pass is locked away.

    Was even planning a pack of the gear for a weekend away...
    For a sunny weekend.
    A stormy weekend.
    A sub 20 kilo overseas pack.
    And a whole season 5 pair of skis, 3 pair of boots, too many jackets to mention pack...

    I am lying in bed looking out the window.....in Thredbo! Top half of the mountain is white. Maybe, just maybe if the forecasted snow arrives we might get to put the skis on this week.

    Season tickets here also. Little blowette keeps asking to go skiing.

    I'm supposed to be down there working today - have postponed to next week. May get a cheeky ski day in up high if we get another 20cm by end of the week.

    I now have Sun-Wed from start of June to end Aug, will spend as much of that as possible at Bo!

    Look out for me at FF bistro or GB early lifts. With the odd foray to first chair Kosi, just so I can throw Arne and co's skis out of the way! coz thats the only way to get first chair there!

    Okay so I want to know a good restaurant for watching the flare run?

    I think previously Candlelight has been mentioned but I did not rate it.

    You can't see the flare run from The Denman can you?

    You want to be quite high, anywhere in the main building like cascades or the bistro you only really see bits and the end. Around kasees would be great but there are no restaurants iirc

    Anyone here a part of Top 2 Bottom 2015? My company are sponsoring it again this year (Mumm Champagne) and seeing as I will be in the Bo most weekends (I have a partner that lives/works in Jindy for the season) I will most likely be involved in some sort of ambassador role that w'end. Might be nice to meet some of my fellow forumers. We are also involved with the opening w'end long lunch :)

    Pulled my gear out last weekend but only my youngin tried hers on.
    Finish sorting out my lease in Thredbo for the season this week. Moving in on Friday.
    Better have a look at all the gear, do some shopping, sort out my cameras and pack the car.

    I've think I might have overdone keeping my excitement about this year subdued because I'm beginning to feel extremely underprepared.

    Bit early to call, but hoping for FF and Merritts. Who knows, if it stays as cold as they say it might, and if we get a little bit more at the end of the week, maybe HN/ST. The snow that has fallen would not last long if skied, and they need to base it. Looks like a cracker week for SM though.

    FF/Merritts > Front Valley ??

    I think Merritts has FV covered if all pistes are opened.

    If Merritts is open, Perisher will have the quad to mid. Opening weekend is never about the skiing.
