    Hi -
    I'm qualifying for the Per. 70+ Season Pass next year and thought it would be great to see if I could entice other skiers to join me. I'm an Intermediate skier; don't have any regular ski pals, and am especially keen to connect with older (50+) women skiers.
    I'm not all that experienced with forum protocols so want to ask for guidance about posting info. here for an informal meetup at Perisher next winter. How would I do that on this (and other ski forums?)? Any suggestions?
    Looking forward to ideas/help from more experienced folks...

    (P.S. I've also started a this thread under the 'Support & Feedback' section.... Not sure where is more appropriate.)

    Make a diary note to raise this topic again about mid June 2019. People will be more interested & constructive then.


    The forum is somewhat random until the the first real snow of the season.

    Also be a regular constructive, witty, funny poster until next season so people will feel like they know you already and want to meet you,

    Welcome, Elinor! There is a solid group of Perisher regulars. Some meet inside Jax prior to first lifts for a coffee. Others - just meet up by arrangement! I’m not quite in the over 70s age bracket yet :)p) and am quite happy to meet up for a ski - I’m up most Sundays during the ski season. Feel free to PM me :)

    The bad news: There's plenty of competition on this score around here.

    The good news: The competition is almost all of pitiful quality. See DJOTD threads for the worst of it.

    You'll do fine with a mediocre effort.

    I saw that motley crew at JAX one morning , well I think it was them anyway. Couldnt get near them though due to the overwhelming stench of dencorub and goanna oil coming from that corner LOLLOLLOL. No, only joking but they do look like prison escapees though , well some of them anyway :eek:;):whistle:.

    I usually find some mid fifty's to 60's geriatrics to cruise around the hills with not like them hardcore , hardcharging go hard or go home (as long as its Mt P) forum crew. LOL:DLOL:DLOL

    Closer to the time just watch for posts about Perisher. Some of us are more concerned with the northern winter at the moment and next Aus season is way to far away to even think about.

    Well, frankly, I guess I qualify for the 'geriatrics' category - though not recognizable by the aroma of dencorub or goanna oil. Yet.
    Cruising around the hills sounds exactly what appeals to me. So I'll endeavour to locate some fellow cruisers when I'm at Perisher. It's good to hear they're often around, and findable!
