The next season awaits!
Another month and a half to opening!
I did the costings on me to catch one fish, turns out I can buy them for about a decade, for the same price!
If you catch anything you’re doing it wrong apparently.
It’s the dance not the catch!
Doing the numbers on fishing gear is like working out your per km value on a gravity bike for commuting!
Just curious, with the Kosi Express still running until 14/10 for Thredbo's organised back country tours, is there anything that physically stops you skiing the Supertrail back to the village on either downhill or telemark skis, subject to there being enough snow of course?
In previous years, once the resort closed for winter, skiing or boarding wasn’t permitted on any trails due to insurance/liability issues.
I presume unfortunately it’s probably the same this year.
The resort can't stop you travelling though your national park. They could call a ranger or a cop to direct you to not ski. What the resort can do is refuse to sell you another ticket.
There are sign at the top and bottom of Kosci Express indicating that the resort is closed. There is machinery(including winch cats) working to clear the service roads and bike tracks. The lower slopes are very patchy now. There is no continuous snow to the bottom.
A lessee has the right to exclude anyone from a leased area (subject to what the lease says).
Ooo till the 14/10, did not know this, ta muchly. That will tie in nicely to tide me over till the CP road opens.
Dunno about the rules, but this arvo there was a rope across the track below Kozzie. They have a lot of plant moving snow and staff around. I guess if you miss the last chair there isn’t much choice! Thankfully we made it, my young fella was beaten by the time we got back there!
The groomers got really stuck into trying to find the mountain bike tracks today. I believe that they did map the gps coordinates before the winter which is probably just as well!
Pissing in the wind with a groomer.
Several of these would have the snow off the tracks in days.
They are getting stuck into clearing the snow so that the mountain bike trails can be setup. It seems such a shame that there is still so much snow and the mountain is closed. They are currently working between Sponars and Anton’s and there is still so much snow! Oh well the slackcountry is skiing very well.
Anyone around this weekend? Will be heading out 8.30ish saturday after I get my new 365 pass. Got 57 days on this years with maybe 70 nights staying in the valley. Looking towards similar for 2018/19.
I watched 2 skiers & a sut bash their way down thru this mess yesterday as i had my comfy chair ride down after a bc day. They musta missed the closed signs.
That's what I call a death cookie!
Ripped this off the web cam this morning...looked ok?
Surprisingly, around at PV on the way to CP it was light drizzle on and off.
Was good earlier, see BC thread for pics.
Really, why would they bother? You took the best route. That's not even bragging at the pub conditions!
First few posts across a few threads today. Won't bother with the boring intro as it's there on the BC threads.
Probably pretty late to the stoke party but just some snaps from Thredbo this year. Just landscapes and coverage pics as I tend to ski alone. Some good ones in there though, showing the great cover we had this year. Enjoy.
Welcome @Laska Goralska
Thanks Sastrugi, looking forward to being able to chat about snow/skiing without having to bore my undoubtedly lovely but non-skiing wife!
Yeah, a skiing partner can be a good thing. +1 and I ski together almost all the time, it's our thing. In resort, back country, overseas... we could both ski ok when we met but we've developed together over the past almost 30 years.
Best friend's hubby died 5 years ago and I've said to her the most important thing in re-partnering is finding herself a skier as it's such a huge part of her life. She agrees
I bet your wife is lovely enough to overcome the none skiing issue
Haha she's definitely made peace with it over the years, largely due to her loveliness!
I tend to prefer skiing alone anyway so it's no problem to me, only ever becomes a minor issue when planning holidays!
My partner is a winter widow. It can work.
Snow play in the Basin
There's also some treasure hunters going from top to bottom of High Noon!
Desperate for a slew of odd gloves and canceled passes?
Mobile phones, wallets, coins, watches, cameras....can find many things during the thaw!
Also posted this in the driving manual cars thread...good memories at Thredbo!
Down the Schuss under the line of the Merritt's chair would be where I'd be starting any scavenging or fossicking, it rains gear off that thing
I know there’s a ski under Snowgums before the Cattrack
Some mountain staff get a good annual haul of cash from under the lifts. One year +1 dropped a brand new mobile off Merrits chair. We looked for a few days in winter, and a few more days in spring. Never found it. Found plenty of keys and rubbish though.
I usually find quite a lot of cash wandering around the hill in spring. Not this year...I have found a whole 25c! We thought that perhaps tap and go cards means that people are carrying less cash.
Unsure if the all mountain track will open in November as there is still a lot of snow on Central Spur as is evident by this photos taken today. The tracks on the lower part of the mountain are coming along well.
Let me know if you find my Mastercard!
Shall do! Any idea where?
Not strictly under a chairlift. Just above the top of Funnelweb. See attached.
No card around here...
I tried to walk down funnel web once...never again. Time for a new Mastercard I am afraid!
Don't go hunting for your card...you may well find some of these instead!
That’s the greatest Thredbo video of all time and possibly the greatest video full stop. The carts! The clothes! The music! The old Thredboness! LOVE IT
Hell yeah! Those dayz were fully far out, grouse, sweet and cool!
