I'm casting my mind forward to next year as we haven't been able to get a short ski break in this Aussie winter this year. I've seen photos of crowds at both Perisher and Thredbo and I'm shocked. We usually go for a few days (Monday to Thursday) in about the second week of August. I'm deciding on an Epic pass or Ikon pass because we will most certainly be heading for a North American holiday too. The state of mid week crowds at both Perisher and Thredbo mid week are a minor factor in the decision. Which is usually busier? Thanks in advance.
