    No idea. Presently KT(? did do snowshoe trips), K7, Phil (not so much anymore, more just some special privates), MRBC(?), Wilderness offering various packages. Im guessing KT sees the market growing, no idea who they are putting on.

    Im glad they are steering clear of my slackcountry preferences.

    You’ve changed! You haven’t even skied yet on on those locked down contraptions you call alpine skis. The van’s gone and been replaced by some new fandangled thing with mag wheels, gone is the pee bottle, it’s too good for you now you have a pretty toilet. Next thing you’ll start showering and dare I say it, shave!

    For those not in the know, below is a picture of the shaved @Untele-whippet at his press conference, informing the ski.com crowd that he has to alpine ski.

    Glorious morning in Thredbo. Coffee, scroll AND a Deluxe B&E Roll (tomato sauce not BBQ) after a long swim in the pool (only swimmer/absolutely all to myself).
    And there is still snow up the top. Perfect non skiing Sunday. About to choof back to Gotham City. Great mini break for the Lodge work party.

    Walked up the all mountain track today and was on snow, mostly, from the bottom of Cruiser. The snow may last until, hopefully, the forecasted snow arrives at the end of the week. They seem to have done an excellent job with widening the Gunbarrel-Crackenback traverse.

    Just noticed that there's a live video feed through YouTube for the Basin, Cruiser and High Noon cams in the Thredbo app - nice addition. How did I miss this?

    Couldn't see this on the mobile site, just the static images and I haven't tried the full site.
