    I am in :thumbs:

    Pass protection is a bit of a lurk with any days logged before invoking charged at full day rate.

    Conditions says until 3rd September before price rise.
    Usually it goes up a few dollars more until October long weekend and then goes up even more.
    Biggest price rise tends to be around beginning of season when it rises to over a grand.

    its like temptation of the financial devil.
    You know you want to, but you dont know whether this time next year you will be trying to re mortgage the house or feeling glad you saved a thousand bucks!

    Yeah but, didn’t I tell you about the missus cousins wedding I don’t want to go to in Scotland, or was that Chris, or Marcus, or Justin,.....
    Now that I think of it we didn’t have an apres, so guess it’s likely it was one of them!

    Is this because of crowds?

    One thing I have noticed is the Thredbo crowds were quite civil and the lines went quickly in comparison to Perisher.

    But perisher is better.

    This is because I’ll be moving away next year and not planning any more Aus resort skiing. I usually only ski at Thredbo when my daughter has had races there, and she’s in her final year of school and therefore last year of interschools. Still got the Perisher pass until the end of season and some USA next year. Will still ski o/s each year. A bit done with Aus conditions, Aus crowds.

    Had a proper weekend at Thredbo this year, and hoping that the charge on my card means our lodge application was successful so we’ve locked in 365 passes. Mtb and winter ‘19 trips coming up!

    I hold @telecrag and @Untele-whippet to blame for all these transfers! All these photos of catching up with friends and cruising around the mountain finding powder stashes. Ive said before you two are thredbo’s secret marketing weapon but this is getting ridiculous ;).

    Welcome to the newly converted! I hope that this conversion has come with your eyes open. We have a great mountain here but there have been times this year when this has not been enough. The weekend queues have been atrocious and the parking full to overflowing with cars not being let into the village on weekends in August.

    Hopefully next winter the weather will be more conducive to escaping into the back country.

    Oh Thredbo is still so terrible but at least it also has terrible MTB and some terrible drinking holes when it’s all too terrible.

    Threw down the deposit in the nick of time. Full 365 for myself and base winter pass for my partner (she don't ride off road).

    Now I just need a downhill-ready bike for myself and new skis for her haha.

    The new prices have only gone up $20 each.
    Guessing that the next price rise will be the last day of season.
