    I can’t see any such courses for snowboarders.
    A real shame IMO

    wasn’t red bull all the rage for a while?

    I’m guessing if I see a ski helmet with a red bull and Jagermeister stickers in Thredbo I’ll just call out skull

    Yeh. Just cruising trying to memorise the course. Couple of spots need precision lines.

    The hairpin section of flow under the lift got a rebuild today. Looks good.

    all upcoming major summer events cancelled, including the easter festival.

    still maintaining mountain operations and open for mtb and hiking.

    Easter being cancelled as far as I care is a good thing. I will go there to ride bikes and not deal with millions and millions of other campers.

    I'll be riding Thredbo a little more than I thought over the next month. Work is splitting our crew to work 3×12 hour shifts, so I'll play till they shut the ski area down.
    I gotta say. If things escalate much more Imo I doubt we'll get a winter start.

    Gotta love it - at a time with a desperate need for social distancing - and with most of the KNP now open - and there’s the downhill mtn bike brigade congregating & trying their past to share bugs?

    Does this mean our ski season has a chance after all or will ScoMo’s medical police shut down this loophole? Eventually?? Mm? :whistle::emoji_bicyclist::emoji_snowflake::emoji_aerial_tramway::emoji_blue_car::emoji_camping::emoji_canoe::emoji_milky_way:

    Some more mixed health measures from Govt near you!
