    Day 5,

    Blue sky, hot but bearable, a light breeze and no crowds on the hill with tunes wafting up from below.
    Village is crowded for the Blues Festival.

    Summer inconsistencies......ho hum.

    Epic weekend. Saturday was warm and dusty, had some really fun laps. Sunday was damp, but wow, the dirt was awesome (photo from Sunday) then today started damp and dried up. Gunbarrel has gone to weekends only now.

    Me, so enduro.


    Big shout out to Steph in the ticket office, she is a keeper @Thredbo (if that is Thredbo). Very professional, showed pretty much all the skills I would look for in front of house, I would map out a path for someone like that. Thanks for your help Steph (should you chance to see or hear of this) you were totally brilliant. Another small step forward, much appreciated.

    And a mega shout to the first aid staff Jo and Davo. And the doc. Fast, caring, bit of a smile and laugh. In a cast ~25 mins after a break and the boy was in a cast. Great stuff.

    I skipped the cast and went with a restricted movement brace for my arm. So much better.

    Hinged for elbow with quad velcro, alloy spined, padded and removable.

    Specialist treatment. Allowed some gated movement but prevented wrist twist.

    Helped keep everything moving more than a cast and almost no muscle wastage.

    Thanks for the info, I’ll have a chat to the specialist about it when we get in to see him.

    Plaster may be old but it was on and set within about 20 or 40 mins of the break happening so I’m pretty stoked. Would have been hours at a hospital or GP and I reckon the bloke doing it would have done more in most weeks of his career than the average GP would do in a lifetime!

    Can anyone tell me when Thredbo take money for the season passes we paid deposits for last year? I can't find any information whatsoever in my emails or my Thredbo account about the passes we paid $49 each for last winter. Pretty annoyed and not surprised.

    Should be in your emails - pretty sure it's in May unless you've already been up during summer.

    I thought you had to pay for both before the opening weekend, so the 365 was the opening of the mtn bike weekend and winter pass was end of May.

    We bought Winter premium passes and the tax invoice Thredbo sent me via email shows the final balance payment of $760 will be deducted from our credit card 30 April 2019.

    Edit, PS the email was from guest_services_thredbo@event.com and the email subject line was 'Kosciuszko Thredbo Invoice for Online Order Reference:'

    Might help you find it in your inbox :nerd:

    One time for some reason my deposit got put against a winter pass, instead of 365, they sorted it on the spot no worries. So long as your deposits are down, they will fix it, but Id expect the email has gone missing into my Nigerian Bitcoin wallet, and your account will be debited on the advertised date, thank you, please come again!

    Not sure this is still the case, last year I stuffed the kids passes and the Thredbo line was bad luck. They would change it but only for the current discount offer.

    A friend had the same issue this year and got little help from Thredbo and he is almost as well known up their as you.....

    Online, or in person? That persons name start with S? Man, he spends a fkn fortune up there, smart work would be fix it. He could surely chat with someone if he wanted though? I do recall a couple of stories, but it was their fault, BUT, some leeway on regular (and I mean fk me what computer system are you running that doesn't show that) would be simple and good PR.

    Back to why we keep going back there, 365

    Actually, you know, a large part is the people. For regulars at least.

    Both of us online and yes that person is who you think.

    The thredbo system isn’t great, I managed to buy a ski ticked for that day at 9pm at night once. The ticket office did um and argh till I pointed out they had sold something after they closed the lifts.

    Point is be very careful

    Yes, it did snow! It might have wrecked the mtb races this weekend but it was great to see for the winter lovers.
