As Thredbo has become a premium destination it may now require an additional alpine code of conduct to adequately preserve its prestige. What follows is circulated for consideration.

Premium skiers code of conduct

Abbreviations:

“LCP” - lower caste person
“IAFAPP” - invoking assistance from a powerful person
“FCM” - fashionable car of the moment
“FRM” - fashionable restaurant of the moment
“FAM” - fashionable accommodation of the moment
“Laurine” - the daughter of a premium skier
“Bartholomew” - the son of a premium skier
“Expenditure policy” - using a corporate credit card with the corporation to be placed into liquidation if payment is required

1. Travel to and from Thredbo.

- Only permitted in a FCM.
- The Road Rules do not apply to a premium skier. Any conversation with a police officer is to be concluded with an IAFAPP.

2. Parking in Thredbo.

- A true premium skier does not even contemplate their actions might inconvenience others. As such the FCM can always be parked directly outside the FAM.

3. Ski equipment

- Can only be acquired in Aspen or Zermatt using the expenditure policy.

4. Lift queues

- These are only for LCP’s

5. Priority lift gates

- It is key to the proper implementation of this code that premium skiers always assume these gates are for their exclusive use.

6. Lunch

- Only permitted at FRM’s

7. Ski races

- Organised for the sole purpose of enabling Laurine and Bartholomew to create social media posts and to win things. IAFAPP’s are to be used if it is asserted they have not won.

8. Backcountry skiing

- Now popular in Aspen and hence permitted as long as mobile phone range is maintained to enable the premium skier to demand things from LCP’s and receive inane complaints from Laurine and Bartholomew.

Full day.
Awesome conditions, I think I got a bit of sun today!!

High Noon was veeeerrryyy nice around lunchtime. Lotta laps.

Back to Fridays for some freestyle training this arvo. That’s starting to come together for me. I can be a total Gumby when it comes to freestyle… much mileage required. But I got some nice butters happening, and some 180s down the fall line which have always freaked me right out.

Nervous LMB…

Day off riding with best buddies today. Bluebird, warm (hoody day today), well groomed, bit solid here and there.. soft down low, but loads of fun.

It was a reasonably busy weekend, but expecting low numbers this week. A midweek for those not in lockdown and wanting lessons will be excellent value!

Skied solo today, sort of, its like a disco, so many people to dance with. Saw @skifree @Kletterer and @DidSurfNowSki on Antons, but didn't have runs today. Bluff was pretty good today, did one down Cannonball, which was also OK. But it was a groomer day really.
Awesome skiing yesterday, was great to finally catch up for some turns after a few years

Great weekend . Yesterday was a primo day skiing with @telecrag , @skifree and @DidSurfNowSki . The @Telezacski clan joined the posse in the afternoon. Quite a sizable gathering at the @dawooduck Ranch last night for drinks and BBQ around the fire. Was good to catch up with Shedmaster @scottski . Excellent pistes this am for carving at speed and a tootle out to Ramshead this arvo with some mates. Couldnt ask for more. Very lucky indeed.

I reckon we must of crossed paths six or seven times today, I recognise your crew, I’m pretty sure you followed my son down playground and then passed us entering the park, your friend on the end didn’t want to go ahead

Ahhh yeah, likely.
The crew stopped often to wait for the slower friends we met up there. The 2 guys on skis. Girls on boards. Gal friend on the end is a timid boarder - would’ve let others go ahead for sure. Actually I was letting traffic go also, needed a bit of clear piste to practice very iffy 180s LOL
